    Good afternoon,

    Is there any way of playing latest media (tv recordings) any other way than filmstrip view (control id 919199840)

    I would like to use thumbnail view or even used fixed buttons to play the latest recordings etc. from BasicHome (#latestMediaHandler.tvrecordings.latest[1..N*].title) etc

    Last time I tried to switch control id 91919984 to a thumbail panel (some time ago) it caused MP to freeze.



    Any ideas/help gratefully received as ever.

    Ahh! Are you saying use a standard menu button with one of those control IDs to do what I want - eg <id>91919984</id> on a basic home menu button will play Latest Recorded Tv#1 ?

    If so, do I need to put in an <action> or will MP just intuitively work from the button ID ?

    Many thanks

    Excellent, Mr AJS, you are a gentleman. I will have a go at duplicating that code in my BasicHome and go from there.
