Hey there guys,
I'm on it... just a little more patience ;-)
Cool, knew I could rely on your better nature
google code was givin' me a hard time today... but here you go!
It's been updated - check the homepage ;-)
I'll update the docs with the new features - but for now some hints:
1. Try pressing the arrows displayed in the Notification-Dialog while it's shown and see what happens ;-)
2. Try pressing Escape (well [Back] action to be precise) in Notification-Dialog while it's shown ;-)
The one problem I do see is timeout in gui, when I press yellow button and get the options screen appear, within 1 second it shifts to the time left screen, so no chance to change anything
Did try changing on screen display timeout under MP config\GUI, but that made no difference.
I'm not sure if I understood your problem correctly...
in the Plugin config (MySleepTimer Configuration) you can set the notification timout used... as long as the dialog is up you should be able to click all the other buttons and the normal set button (yellow in your case) again?! don't you?
what skin? (I'm using Xfactor and the defaults work as well)
PS: click faster ;-)
LOL, remember I am supposed to be half asleep
if I adjust the timeout in sleeptimer config, it reverts back to 1 when reopened.
Also if I am quick enough to left arrow into "Timer stopped", the next dialog shown is how many minutes left in my case it was 3 for testing and sure enough it did exit MP, which if timer stopped should not have happened.
that's why it took me so long to update this - the support is killing me ;-)
and that's why you shouldn't fiddle with it in the last seconds before sleeptime ;-p
On my machine it always resets the dialog timeout after each additional keypress... therefore i can keep the settings window open as long as i want by continiously hitting the buttons... is this different on your behalf??? What skin - maybe there some animations messing with the dialog?
Config value reverting - will look into it.
FYI: Once the Timer stopped, the next time your press the button it should behave like the first time being setup (ie. remaining playtime/playlist or default step!)
To be honset though I'm not having any of the Problems you're describing
(could you please check if the plugin is installed twice on your machine? used to be in /process and is now in /windows)
PS: PLAYLISTS SHOULD SETUP THE TIMER CORRECTLY NOW ;-)
bugger, that was it, sorry took so long, was doing a bit of checking to make sure it worked, only thing still wrong is timeout setting will not save, 1 second notification is just not long enough, were is this saved too, will manually edit if need be.
If I edit mediaportal.xml, 3 second value for notification still will not stick
Is this behaviour correct.
1. Watching a tv program, have already pressed yellow button to enable sleeptimer to "exit MP2 at end of playback, timer on nofication shown.
2. Decide to watch something else, so yellow button and abort sleep, "timer disabled" shows.
3. Change channel and try to re-enable timer, sleeptimer immediately shows "time up" notification and exits MP.
Hey there Paranoid,
I updated once again... could you please try again.
Settings should stick now...
It seems to me like your use cases are way more elaborate than mine ;-)
PS: I'm a bit hungover so please be gentle...
