    very cool, I'm glad you took the challenge :)
    I assume currently only BluTwo skin is supported? Perhaps you could contact PsychoReptile so he includes your plugin the famous Revision skin?

    Thanks a lot! Also glad I took the challenge, since it really helps my everlasting search through the music library, lol :p


    Correct, BlueTwo wide works, but the aligment ...sucks. Will try to manage that soon, just don't have any spare time :/

    Very nice one! I like it very much!
    Suggestions to your plugin:
    1. How about an option to add everything/more than one item from Search to the Playlist? (Maybe with a kind of mark files option or something like that). E.G. I search Genre for Electronics and want to hear every song of that genre. I know that possible with the standard search, but more complicated.
    2. How about adding the rating to search options? Goal would be to generate a search like Genre=Jazz and Rating=5 Stars.

    EDIT
    3. The current search-keyboard is very slow and complicated to use. How about using the SMS-Style-Input as it is integrated in MyTV->Scheduled->Search? There it doesn't work too well, but since your search only searches DB after hitting "Search" and not directly while inputting the characters i guess it could work?!?
    /EDIT

    But as I said, I like it already now very much and appreciate your work!

    Regards

    Thanks for this wonderful plugin! It works like a charm!

    I agree that the keyboard is somewhat slow, but for me being a touch screen user I still prefer the keyboard over sms input. Maybe an option to choose between both of them?

    Okay, after receiving some feedback, this is what I will concentrate on in the following release, planned for next week or the week after that:

    - Support for SMS input, the full keyboard will be still supported too
    - Support for BlueTwo Wide (especially the details screen has a lot of overlaps)
    - More drilling (see the post of The_Stig). I think an easy solution for his first issue is to drill down from the details screen (e.g. filter all with the current album, genre, etc), meaning you will narrow the search results
    - Extra search field: Rating, this will be separate from the 'normal' searchfield so you can create an 'and'.
    - Better documentation of the code (it's documented at the moment, but it could be loads better :))

    In the future it might be needed to enhance the search functionality (meaning you can search on album, genre and songname e.g.). This can also be achieved by seacrching through the current search results (similar to the 'drilling' feature described).

    When I need to focus on something else, please post here, maybe I'll change my efforts :p

    I don't know anything about the code structure, but from a user's perspective, there is no reason for another overlay. The RC numeric keys should just type into the existing "search phrase" field, just as the normal keyboard does.
    This is the way "SMS keying" works in Windows MCE, for example.
    From this point of view, it's nothing specific to your global search for MePo, but something which could benefit all of the MePo search functions.

    Yeah, the overlay could stay and when entering a number it shouldn't use the number but the sms-input (2=a,b,c,2; 3=d,e,f; and so on). That would do the trick as well and both ways would be integrated.
