    Thanks, I have it installed and intial tests look great, not had a crash yet, so maybe the problem I had with the previous version crashing has been fixed :)

    One thing, I use Avallance skin (not WS) and the backdrop image on the TVSeries now playing screen was not showing, it was just a blank screen. I seem to have fixed it by making another section called NewRectangle not visible, I think it was laying over the image.

    I am sorry that is so vague, but I don't really know what I'm doing in the skin editor, it is usually down to luck and many attempts if I manage to make the changes I was intending to! If you need more info, let me know.

    I changed the Rectangle a bit. Now it's more transparent.
    I make some other changes for quantor, so if everything is done I'll upload an updated Version for Avallanche Skin.
    Thx for the hint! :)

    I had some problems with MPDisplay and MP_UPnPRenderer.

    The code couldn't load album art over http- URLs, therefore the images of albums played from the UPnP server are never shown. I looked into the code on GitHub and tried some changes.

    With the patches attached, loading Images from URLs now works for me.

    Maybe you could take a look at it and merge it into your code for the next release.

    Thank you for this great plugin! :)

    Media portals use for a long time, has been updated to 1.11.0 and accordingly MPDisplay ++ to 9.7.0, as use body Thermaltake DH-202 with 7 ", and that's what the thing: when you press the Task Switcher (call submenu with audio, subtitles, chapters, etc.), at least when you click on App.Launcher (info) on the screen TV pops plate: MPDisplay.GUI program is not working, and the display housing is information at the moment of pressing the button. a week and still can beat. With languages not so good, so ask for help here. Spread the logs.English speak poorly and write through Google translator. I beg your pardon

    Could you please set the Log- level in MPD++ Config to "Debug" and force the error again (I need those log- files)?
    What I didn't understood: What do you mean with:

    when you press the Task Switcher (call submenu with audio, subtitles, chapters, etc.), at least when you click on App.Launcher (info)

    Task Switcher (or F9 on Keyboard?) is relative clear, but I don't know what you do in next step (what key is it on the keyboard?)...

    I have remote Control, not the keyboard. when you press the Task Switcher (call submenu with audio, subtitles, chapters, etc.),rarely when you click on App.Launcher (info) on the TV screen appears plate: The program does not work MPDisplay GUI.display housing is information at the moment of pressing the button.

    I need the same log files just with more information in it...
    Or better, everything you find in the logs- folder of MPDisplay++, ProgramData folder. Just put it into a zip file. ;)

    I don't know how you configured your RC... So it would be good to know what key on keyboard the Info- key is.
    When I see it correctly (in MP WIKI) you first tab F9 (TaskSwitcher on your RC) and then F3 (App.Launcher on your RC)? does MPD crash when you press one button after another or when clicking both buttons independently of each other?

    I (sebimuxx at least) must have these debug- logfiles to see if it's probably a skin issue or something else...
