XMLobby Integration. You can control the ST2-XM via the XMLobby interface by creating "Automation Rules" against the XMLobby variables. For example, "Whenever xmcurrentchannelnumber changes value Then MLRussoundST2|SET_CHANNEL~Source_1~{ {xmcurrentchannelnumber} }". This will change the ST2-XM station when you select a station via the XMLobby screen. This allows you to use the functionality of XMLobby which shows what is playing on each station and cover art.
