    I agree and ask to make the entire MediaPortal experience as easy as using a game console. The less PC-like, the better. IMHO.

    my three would be,

    1) allow skin files to be changed universally (eg. when using certain plugins, you need to add extra files or add a button to the existing skin... to be able to put this in 1 folder and then see the effects on all skins would be awesome

    2) optimise for widescreen tv using zoom mode when inputting via s-video to fake the signal comming through as widescreen without distortion (see https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/viewtopic.php?p=110147#110147)

    3) more, more, more inside mp and less outside to allow for family to use withou worry

    My only wish is : VLC intetgration because it's light-weighted ( cpu use is very low), free and can play almost all formats you can need (real audio e.g).

    this should be quite simple... but i´m too stupid to code.

    1. If the user was able to sort the menu on the homescreen

    2. I would like to open mediaplayer or itunes directly when i press the my music button

    and last but not least good job so far...

    go to setup-plugins-select the home plugin, goto its configuration, second tab and start sorting:wink:
    You can more or less emulate this in some ways:
    -Via my programs
    -Or, even better: Use the the Multishortcut hack/plugin. Rename to My iTunes (or anything else, drop My music off your menu (see 1) and add the shortcut. Just not sure whether this still works with 0.2.0.x
    You just leave me wondering why you want to start a 2-feet-distance GUI from a 10 feet one. :?:

    MP is still the best out there but here are my three requests.

    - Client / Server also has my vote
    - Setup/configuration intergrated into Mediaportal.
    - Support for multi-core processors as multi-core processors is the future. Dual-core processors are already out and Quad-core processors should come out sometime in 2007. I think it will greatly help performance of MP.

    Coverflow, PopupClock,etc

    1. A Coverflow clone in the music part of MP.
    2. A popup clock for any menu (weather, loading of music folders,etc) that requires more than a 25th of a second.
    3. A popup warning when MP intends to change the channel to record a show ("Changing to 04-CBS to Record BLAH BLAH BLAH, Ok Cancel"... 6 seconds and it's "ok" by default)
