    P.S.
    I just came across this open source plugin for Windows 7 Media Center. I haven't tried it, but based on the description it would cover some of the wishes expressed here for coordinated music and slideshow playlists. Maybe some of the code could be cribbed for MP.

    Hi,

    Would it be possible to have the option to "sort by" album artist. For example I want to list my music by albums, then by ALBUMartist so that all the various artists albums are grouped together when browsing albums. See attached screenshot for where I would like the option. I think this might be an easy thing to include but I cannot see how/where to add this using MP configuration music views/track format mask screens.....

    Also an option that once the albums are sorted by album, then by album artist, to have them arrange in album name order. Eg if you have several various artist albums that they are sorted by album name so that all Now that's what i call music albums are together and also in numerical order - now 48 d1, now 48 d2, now 49 disc 1, now 49 disc 2 etc.


    Cheers,
    Colin

    Probably already in the list of ideas but as I'm a bit lazy I don't want to read the 16 pages ;-)

    * Adding a smart playlist generator like into xbmc where you could apply filters to generate autoplaylist

    Forget me if already in the list...

    Just a question : Is the song rating store into the IDTag or the database? Using rating filter into a smart list generator should be a great way to generate a "favorites songs playlist". But if I spend my time to tag songs into MP and then I loss my database or switch to another system, are all the ratings lost? Thanks for your lights!

    Hi guys,

    i got two small enhancement/ feature request...

    1. when playing music and pressing the "replay" button on my harmony (mapped to "previous track") the previous track from the playlist will be played but i think it would be better, if you have to press the button "repeat/previous track" twice to play the last file again. When pressing the repeat button once, the actual played song should start from beginning. For me this is the normal behavior from the MP3/ CD Players i know. Maybe that should be adjustable (only turn on/off).
    Or is this possible with the current Version of the music part? Maybe an other remote mapping or something?

    2. At the moment i have some problems with plugins that uses the repeat/skip and forward/backward buttons. The problem is, that a plugin cant "override" the function of these buttons. For example... The Clickfinder Program Guide uses these Buttons to switch between pages and if i am playing music in the background and want to navigate trough the different pages (with skip/replay) the music track will change also. Other plugins (browsetheweb!?) wich use these buttons should have the same problems.
    Is it possible to add something for the plugin developers to override the button functions inside their plugins if the need to?

    Hi legnod

    It should be possible to setup MP's Remote Config so that the repeat/forward buttons only do the change music track functions in certain screens (i.e Music and Now Playing) but perhaps it depends on which particular remote you use. I've used the Hauppauge one and now the MessagePlugin with EventGhost and I can do it with both of those.

    By searching a bit into the whole site, I've found that something similar already exist into the plugins : The smartplaylist plugin : https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/threads/smartplaylists-1-1-4-6.44278/page-12

    I think that integrating this plugin into MyMusic src code with a nice interface (like xbmc) to apply parameters and filter directly into the MP interface and not into a xml file should be a great thing!

    @doveman yes i know and i tried that inside the mpcontrolplugin from IRSS but this behaviour is always the same...the action i defined
    for the specific screen will be executed normally but in addition the "standard" function as explained above will executed too.

    Do you have an MCE remote? I wonder if perhaps Windows is still seeing the standard MCE buttons and sending them, as well as MP sending it's own. I recall there's a way to disable Windows from doing this but I'm afraid I can't tell you the specifics.

    That is very likely true, i think there is an option in Mediaportal configuration to disable the wmc services including, maybe check that ?
