    Hi,

    It would be nice to have an OSD when increasing or decreasing volume.
    Oh and a mute indicator.
    A nice slider bar which moves after each key press would be nice also.

    I'll back this up -- this is one of the most obvious features that is clearly missing.

    For those of us that use the system volume control via MediaPortal, please show an OSD graphical meter to let us know the volume %.

    Thanks!

    Almost toasted my speakers the other day because this was not available, had no idea what the volume was at and hit play.

    Can I ask that if this does get implemented that its an option that can be disabled, I use Girder and use the volume display through that for everyting on my HT box so having it in MP, though a good idea, may be overkill for a few people.

    also nice in this feature: the ability too give a fix Volume for the Startup. That meens, if you have sett the Volume at the last playing very loud, there is no Problem at the next Startup when there is a way too fix the Loudness always on the same point, for example at 50%.
    This is a standard by the Home- Theatre- Receivers.

    Regards Damdy

    Yes, I endorse this request too - an OSD that displays the volume setting in % and that commences at a preset % (say 30%) everytime MP is started.... :D

    Count me in on this one too... :)

    Better yet; make it configurable what part of the Windows mixer you want to change (ie the master volume or the wave volume and so on)

    I'll give you an example:

    I am using an Pinnacle PCTV/Pro tv-tuner and I route the sound from the line-out to the line-in on the integrated soundchip on my motherboard (Asus K8N). When I want to watch some tv then the volume change will affect only the line-in on the soundcard. When I switch to watch a movie the volume changer will affect the wave-thing.

    All this should ofcourse be configurable.

    Me too!

    I prefer a number on a scale of 1-25 for the volume indicator as in MCE.

    I've been using version 1.2.2.0 for years and have found no need to upgrade to newer version. I hate it that skins loose compatibility with almost every new version. And new skins are too 'fancy' for my taste. I use a customized version of the default wide skin with only Videos and TV in the main menu. I use mediaportal for recording...

    MP1 MP2 Odd Standby issue DE
    Since I played around with all the settings as per the previous posts and despite putting everything back to how it was, as far as I can tell, now when my HTPC wakes up to make a recording it no longer does so in away mode. I will probably do a restore from a backup in the hope that that will resolve the issue.:mad:
