Hi

I'm pretty new to this so not sure whether this is a feature or bug. Some background...I have been running the 0.2RC2 with cvs build from 4 Jan for a few weeks and enjoying it. I'm mainly using My Music as I have a DigiTV card that doesn't work that well with BDA drivers. I'm also using the iTunes player as a lot of my music is iTunes purchased.

This morning I updated to the 3 Feb cvs build to take advantage of the Now Playing screen (which I don't think was there previously). On a quick play I've noticed two things that are different;

1. The Windows Screensaver kicks in after its alloted time (5 mins) when MP is in full screen. This didn't happen before. IS this meant to happen?
2. I use the remote that comes with the TV card to control MP. Sometimes MP loses focus and to get the focus back I use the key on the remote that's mapped to starting up MP. Previously this just gave MP back the focus but with the new build it starts up another instance of MP. AGain is this meant to happen?

THanks for help

Nick

"Sometimes" when I am playing a playlist with the TV on I notice that the screen becomes frozen. The on screen playlist doesn't show the songs advancing through the list. i.e. the currently playing song doesn't match the name of the on screen song. MP still plays the playlist ok but the screen just stops showing the correct song...

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 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...
