I am currently working on a plug-in for Home Automation. The domain will be 'My Ambience', allowing consumers to change their room (lighting) ambience from within the Media Portal.

    Do you know that there are (I think) 2 plugins like this already?
    Not sure if they are fully functional, work with current release or are bound to specific hardware. Do a search on the forums or the patches section of sourceforge. Maybe you can use some of the code/integrate it or whatever.

    Yes - please get with Devo on this if you could he assisted with Nopap on the X10 plugin ther which could be greatly expanded. To add - Devo also wrote the Alarm plugin which you could possibly use for some of your scheduling events. Devo was gonna look at this later - but is focused on the WebBrowser plugin but would likely hand over the keys and point you to all the sources.

    Please use me for any test code if you could --- but be certain please to use the X10 firecracker support. I use this full-time.

    Love to see your work in any stages of progression.

    Perhaps it’s good to look here for WMC skin. In the wiki you find also further infos about setting up the media views. For further discussion it’s better to open another thread. I’ll mark the EPG topic as solved.

    Standard Windows behaviour is that if you open a file in File Explorer that has an application associated with it the file will be displayed in that application. This does not happen with MP2. If I try to open a .ts file (or any other video file type associated with Media Portal) rather than displaying the recording it merely opens...

    It’s technically not possible to combine the library and folder view. This is also the case for other HTPC softwares I fear. The media can quickly organized by filters, sorting etc., it’s not about fanart. The folder view is meant just as a basic navigation feature.
