I have a keypad working nice with the appletv module (yep, I donated!) and here's two thoughts...
1) As mentioned, the AppleTV needs rebooting from time-to-time. I decided to look into getting it to reboot every day at 4am and the best solution is to get ATV Patchstick with SSH installed, then you can copy cron and crontab which are two unix scheduling utilities... just schedule a reboot. I've done the patchstick without any problems but I still need to find cron and crontab from an old OS X 10.4 Intel install disk. I think mine is at the office. Anyone have these commands handy?
2) Using a keypad is different than a panel so the appletv module needs some tweaks. I'd like to be able to get a complete list of the playlists in one call without the page up/page down code since the MIO-DMS can have it loaded all at once. I played around with the max values but that didn't seem to work.
That's about it. Nice work!

Posting in this thread in case anyone, like me, thought that I might *have* to go through an Apple TV to control iTunes...
In case anyone is interested, I've been working on a NetLinx module to control an iTunes server running on MacOS (not Apple TV). Right now I can browse playlists, start/stop/pause/skip/etc and get now-playing data (although I haven't looked at artwork yet). I'm cleaning it up right now and could provide a demo in a few days. Let me know.

I'm working on the same thing except I am currently controlling iTunes installed on one PC using either Python or Ruby. Full control is already working fine as I will implement it later in one of our client here in KSA for their BGM requirements. Working with Ruby and Python and interfacing them with AMX is more comfortable than writing the whole things in Duet, I think. I have done the same thing with my Nokia C6-01 as I am utilizing it as cheap Touch panel to control any devices within the scope of AMX System.

Reviving an old thread. Anyone figure anything out yet for ATV3 IP control with feedback?

AppleTV 3 uses an encrypted protocol, I don't think you'll ever find any programming for it using AMX, unless Apple changes their friendliness to third parties.

Didn't autonomic having a working module for a while? Also, I believe RTI has a module.
