    Re: Improvement Suggestion

    Hi zunixnuz,
    the next version supports alphanumeric keys (for an example see MediaTip configuration dialog). Special keys like Ctrl, Alt and Shift can be also handled, but requires more configuration logic. It's not planned yet, perhaps in the next major release.

    Cheers, Micropolis ;-)

    Hi Mr.Goro,
    I'm not able to create StreamedMP skin, hopefully your post here gets more attention, sorry.

    Cheers, Micropolis ;-)

    Hi biship,
    please copy the appropriate TV Server libraries from this archive into your MediaPortal main directory and try again.

    Cheers, Micropolis ;-)

    Re: SleepControl plugin for MediaPortal v0.6.6

    Hi Micropolis!

    I just started testing this plugin, loving the functionality and it's probably going to be one of my regular plugins..

    Just have few usability requests :)

    * Autostart on quick activation.. If timer is not running, plugin should autostart first enabled timer without the dialog. On consequent presses of start timer key the plugin should increment to next enabled timer and not increment by amount (that's what increment timer key does). When on last timer, next key press should deactivate the timer.

    Just to make it more clear, for example I have configured timers like in documentation (15, 30, 45, 60, 120, 240, 500, 720, 1040), When I press StartTimer key there is a dialog to select timer. With the new option checked the plugin wouldn't show dialog but automatically activate timer1 = 15min. If i now press StartTimer again, timer will be increased by 5min, it would be better to increase it to 30min (next enabled timer). If i press IncrementTimer button few times i will eventually get to 50min timer. Now if i press StartTimer, the 60min timer should be selected.

    * Wait for tasks finished functionality: Why is the timer stopped when media is playing (probably recording too) and then reset when stopped. What i expected from this functionality is that timer does not stop but it goes on until 0, then if media is playing or TVServer is recording, you should change SleepControl.Status text to "Waiting until tasks are finished..." and also SleepControl.Text to "%selectedmode% will be initiated after tasks are finished". At this point, user has the ability to stop timer by just pressing StartTimer. After tasks are finished if timer is still active, initiated selected shutdown mode..

    Huh! Loads of text but the implementation shouldn't be that hard i think :)

    Hope you can take a look at my requests and think about implementing them.

    Thanks!

    Re: SleepControl plugin for MediaPortal v0.6.6

    Hi SilentExcept,
    thx for your great improvement ideas.
    Both functionalities can be implemented with the next major release, some source code parts needs a bigger redesign before. If I find enough time, a new version can be published in the next 2 or 3 weeks.

    Cheers, Micropolis ;-)
