OK, thanks, I'll give it a whirl.

Sorry, can you clarify? Is there an OSC object compiled somewhere for 
the ARM? And if it's server only, does that mean it can't receive OSC

Will try this as well. Right now, "ipkg update" isn't working for me, 
seems it can't find its way to the WIFI, even though everything else can.

Yup, only getting sound out the speaker. Since my project depends on 
using the record line-in, I better get this one sorted out fast! The 
Audio Settings menu lists only "OSS Device #1", so I don't think I'm 
using ALSA at all. Is that a different kernel or module set than what 
comes stock in Familiar?

Maybe you know, can the 5550 record stereo from the line in? I was under 
the impression it is only a mono input.
