cool, nice work MrMitchell Did you make it not show any files with the "invisible" tage or did you just make a filter for the 2 examples you given ? edit.. No matter I looked at your patch. You hide the files with the hidden tag set. Nice!!

VNC works well for this (well for iPaq's and similar at least) unless you are running XP SP2 with Fast User Switching. By the time the patch is official I bet one of the VNC packagers will have worked around that.

In the manual of the tv it says: If you watch a static image for 1 hour, you need to...

I only have dialup connection which isn't always connected so what I would like is that if the weather update fails then it show the last update that worked. This would probably require that the weather for each city is stored in a seperate file. Thanks.

Same here: Bumping is a very bad habit. Users get warned if they start bumping threads for no further purpose. If they do not react, they have to be removed from the forums. "Bumps" get deleted here on the forums. I leave this one (and another one) for history reasons now.

Hi, Not that important, but: My request is that the function of these two buttons in the osd should be changed to navigate to the next / previous file in the music module. Don't know if it is a bit complicated to change that, because the osd is the same as in tv or video module, where the current functionality makes sense...
