    MediaPortal property overview

    Dear community,
    inside the installer file of Dashboard you can find a example, how to customize the informations. This example use global properties from MediaPortal itself, HTPCInfo, SleepControl, VolumeControl, InfoService and Stocks & Indices plugin.

    To get an overview about supported global properties, please take a look into the following list:
    • MediaPortal - see here
    • InfoService - see here
    • Moving Picture - see here
    • Online Videos - see here
    • ShowTimes - see here
    • my plugin collection (HTPCInfo, SleepControl, VolumeControl, ScreenControl, Stocks&Indices, MediaTip ...) - see appropriate plugin manuals (Chapter "Properties")

    I want to extend this list in the next time step by step. If you want support me here, please post a message in this thread.

    Cheers, Micropolis ;-)

    I had installed this plugin but it dosn't work correctly.
    For Example there are no wetherinformation. It is shown '#infoservice.weather.location, #infoservice.weather.today.temp, #infoservice.weather.today.condition'. These were proberties from Mediaportal and should be display. SHould i update the DashboardOverlay.xml. But how??

    Do you have Infoservice plugin installed? Because they are not properties of MP but of the plugin infoservice.
    If yes does infoservice work correctly?

    Thanks for the Info.
    I thought that the Infos about Weather feature from MediaPortal. It is a great pity that Dashboard needs many other Plugin to work.
