Hi Michael,

Here is a one byte change to libdmapsharing which allows the Rhythmbox
DAAP/DACP plugin to work with Apple Remote v2.0.1 (229) on an iPod
touch (and probably an iPhone, but maybe not on an iPad):

All this does is change the server information sent to the remote to
say it does support DMAP updates (dmap.supportsupdate aka field
msup). This is based on the following patch by Kai Elwert for
another DMAP/DAAP/DACP server, forked-daapd:;a=commit;h=ee7b976eeb2851c7837d7ea4e90f4a02563c7037
