simple request for "myPrograms" (1 Viewer)

My situation is as follows: I want to use iTunes for music and Firefox for the web. iTunes because I have bought music there, Firefox because it's the best browser :)

That means I need to have the facility to simply start a program out of MP. I know that I can do this with the myPrograms-Plugin, but it's kind of overpowered.... I would like to have a simple option "start program" in the myPrograms-Plugin, without being forced to define files for it.
In MP I would like to have one menu entry per program under "myPrograms". So I can start iTunes, Firefox stuff like that with one click.

Yep, the ability to add user-defined menu items. Mini-plugins. Have an add button to the plugins page, and you define the name, path, etc.

I don't imagine something like this would be too difficult to add to MP, but its more a question of if the developers would be interested in this approach. Generally, there is quite a tight control on the menu.

MP1 MP2 MP2 DLNA status? DE
What I meant is that we have a MP2 plugin called UPnP Render that can play media from DLNA servers if I remember correctly. I don't know the current state of the plugin though. That's why MP2 probably never will be certified. ;) Yes, that was also the idea, but it is a big job as all TV's, software etc. seems to not do everything...

In lieu of a likely modification to TV Setup module, I have devised my own workaround, using SQL. Here is a quick resume. Should be safe but make sure you have a backup before you try this! Simple scenario to demonstrate. 2 cards both on A/B diseqc switches. In each case A connects to LNB pointed at Satelite 1, and B to Sat 2...

That's fun. I shattered my kneecap on one of those e-scooters. I'm terribly out of shape from the months of being bedridden. I didn't get fat, at least, but a walk in the park is not an expression of something being easy anymore.
