    Okay, this has happened between 1.0 and 1.01... To reproduce do the following..

    1.. Enter Last.FM and "Start/Change stream" for "My Web Radio" or any stream of your choosing.
    2.. Return to Home menu or any other menu for that matter (even Full-screen Visualization)
    3.. Return to Last.FM and press F9 to either "Love, Skip or Ban" current track

    You will notice that there are only two options now rather than seven.. "Start/Change Stream" and "Reload settings"

    What will also happen is that your stream will dry up after a while...




    I feel it is important to say this, to have a plug-in that is default with MediaPortal (and also payed subscription) to have pending issues is probably not a good idea nor a good look... Especially when you have well developed plug-ins like Moving Pictures and TV Series not in the mix.

    Just my two cents..


    The other pending issues are

    1.. "Navigation outside of Last.FM'
    Basically you can't skip tracks or any thing of that nature unless you are inside the Last.FM screen.

    2.. "No Album Thumbnail"
    This is a strange one as this was originally in Last.FM

    3.. "Not all data passed on correctly to Bass Engine. (I guess you could call this one a feature)

    :D

    Hi rtv,

    Do you have time to look at the issues above. The one I'm most concerned about is;
    "Is there any way to make #Play.Current.ArtistThumb globally available, so that I can use it on overlays on different screens, the same way I use the #Play.Current.Thumb when I listen to music/radio?"

    Thank you for a great plugin:)

    best regards
    cul8er

    Please understand that this is not related to the plugin at all but part of the musicoverlay which is responsible for setting global skin properties.

    Hi Rtv.

    First, this is a great plugin, I started using it not long ago. I too have the same issue mentioned above.

    The strangest part is that the playlist will stop at the end of the current song. :confused:

    Thanks.

    SO RTV... Not just me having this... Have you been able to recreate it... Just trying to help out... Great plug-in just damm annoying when your listening to last-fm and wanting to wonder, wiki stuff or check the weather...

    PS: StreamedMP your skin (even got fanart going on).... Any chance of getting an #ArtistThumb back in the code like you once did a few revisions ago, I like the artwork, would be nice to have both...
