The queues show up just fine for me, but hitting back/escape when at the root NetFlix 2.0 screen does nothing. Hitting this button should send me back to the home menu, but it does not work in NetFlix 2.0.

So to use this plugin, I have to sign up on an external website first? Not real keen on that. This would be the only netflix enabled device I have that would require it. Don't understand why, but it is a factor in my decision. I don't want to share every single aspect of my life with people on social network sites. People sign up for all kinds of social networking stuff without even thinking about it anymore. IMO, not really a good thing.

I may not get Netflix on my MP box after all. Thanks for all the work Wile E.

Same here. I'm having to shut down mediaportal via the task manager to get out of it.

    Hey mlburgoon,
    I appreciate the feedback, thank you. To answer your concerns in order...

    1. External website -> A few plugins (Last.fm, Moving Pictures, etc.) have external websites to create accounts before use. I do understand your concern, but all that data that is fed to the 2.0 plugin runs through this site. I will consider creating a sign-up form for the plugin when we get further along in development.

    2. Social Networking -> The myReelTalk website does not require social networking. In fact, you have to enable Facebook & Twitter manually to share information. If you do not enable these features, nothing will be shared.

    3. "I may not get Netflix on my MP box after all." -> I am building this plugin for all users, so if it is a make or break for you and others, we will find a way around it.

    Thank again!
    Wile E.

    I see the issue here... Its set to return to the 'Users' menu from the queue menu. If you only have one user there is nothing to display, hence the issue. I will fix that tonight.

    Thanks!

    Hey, I appreciate the response. My response to yours would be as follows:

    To your point 1, Moving pictures does not require you to sign up for any site, it is optional. for last.fm\pandora, I am signing up for their service, I am not going to a third party and signing up with that third party to be able to access the service that I have already signed up for. I am already signed up for Netflix, so don't see the need to sign up for a nother service.

    To your point 2, that is nice to know and is a factor in signing up (in a good way).

    To your point 3, I know there is a ton of work involved in that. It would be nice to have it direct and for some people it may be a deal breaker. Don't change it for one person, though.

    thanks for the hard work, and I am debating trying it out.

    Thanks for your response and know that I value every opinion. I will keep your points in mind moving forward.
