    Hi all,

    we have add some new stuff in to the Blue3wide skin:

    1. New OSD´s for TV and video

    now all is in one place on bottom ofthe screen,
    you can display the osd, by using the "i" button on your remote or the "y" button on your keyboard.
    If you use then the onup button the osd will expand by a nice animation slide out and show you the description bigger. With on down button it will slide back to normal size.

    TV osd normal

    Great new osd's
    This is exactly what I need from a osd. But could not realise it myself.

    thanks a lot for your effort Harley.

    (can i use these osd in MP 1.0.2)

    Is there a way to just download the new blue3wide or the new osd xml's?

    Big :D Harley!

    That's great new features! Do you have thought about logo support in live tv, e.g. Dolby digital logo, 16:9, 4:3, subtitle ....?

    Best regards

    Helios

    Looks good :)

    Would we also get this OSD when Video is Paused? ... and guessing your answer why not? :(

    Hi vadimz,

    yes, that was also same idea by me.
    Same osd for "i" and "pause". So we would have only one osd for both situations.
    Don´t see there any reason, why we should work there with two different osd layouts.
    The osd is in non expand mode not so big that it would not fit also for pause.

    But the team prevers the two different osd solution, one for "i" and a smaler one for "pause".

    But at the moment it is work on progress, so we will see what happens. :)

    Greetings Harley

    I agree with you, the non expanded OSD for "pause" and a fully expanded one for "i" is a good solution.
    Don't listen to the team there's more of us (users) then them ;) ... just kidding

    I actually don't even use "i", I use a universal remote control and don't have "i" key to map too. What I would really liked if "enter" or "select" brought up the OSD like with almost any stb that I've used.

    Oh and one more thing, would it be possible to include a clock as well... :)

    :D
