    Good evening everyone,

    I want to put the programme description on to my overlay. This is easy for television (#TV.View.description) and video (#Play.Current.Plot, #Play.Current.PlotOutline) but I am having difficulty finding a property for the currently playing Radio.

    Is there no equivalent to #TV.View.description for radio?

    I've been working through the list here: MediaPortal/MediaPortal-1

    But having no luck at all.

    Many thanks

    There is #Radio.Recorded.Description for recorded radio, but I don't think that there is the equvalent for live radio. :(

    I have attached my bumper list of built-in skin variables which you may find useful. I generated this list by scanning the entire MP source (downloaded from GitHub) looking for the string "#. This is not guaranteed to generate a correct list of skin variables. In particular:
    • Some hits may not be skin variables.
    • Some skin variables may be missing.
    • Skin variables usually have values only in specific panels; this list does not tell you where the variables have valid values.
    I manually edited the list to remove entries that were obviously not skin variables, but there may still be some invalid entries present.
