Getting device icons to work with Airfoil source

I've messed about with the control page device control icons "iTunesStatus_large+.png" et al, and I can't get them to follow Airfoil's device states. I've tried using "Source status is playing (True or false) and added "iTunesStatus_large+true.png" and "iTunesStatus_large+false.png" but that doesn't work. I've also tried using AirFoil's "Current Source Status" for the icon state and that doesn't work either.

How do you make this work on your control pages?

Re: Getting device icons to work with Airfoil source

It works when you select the Current Source Status. However, the Airfoil API doesn't provide the play status of the source, so the only way to get it is to specify an iTunes device (in your Airfoil device instance's config) from which Airfoil will get the play status. Since the iTunes plugin no longer works, then the play state will never get updated, so all you will ever see is the grayed out play button (which is what shows when the status is 'unavailable'.
