    Hi there,

    this is the second thread about CouchPotato 2.0 (check out the first here: https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/threads/remote-buttons-whats-needed-whats-not.113063/).





    This time I would like to inform you about the iOS versions I want to support with the update and also ask for your opinion on that.

    I have planned to require iOS 5 for CouchPotato 2.0. The reasons for this are:
    • Many third party libraries that I want to use require iOS 5
    • Most current devices are able to run iOS 5
    • There are some programming features that make life a lot easier in iOS 5
    This would effectively mean that the original iPhone and the 3G would be cut off, also some of the early iPod touch models. Are you ok with that?

    Just to be sure: Are you talking about iOS 5 or 6?
    Opt 1 includes 6 which is a no go for me atm.
    So no opt will fit my opinion as 5 is fine with me, 6 is not.
