Nice job,

im preparing the folder structure and the form jpg but the problem its that "movie gui builder" doesnt work with spanish caracters like , , , , , ...
There are other programs that could do the jpg with the movie information?

not a program, but a workaround solution:
- use moviejukebox to generate HTML index for all your movies (the HTML files look like this)
- use a program to convert the HTML pages to jpgs (e.g. http://www.html2jpg.com/)

ciao,
elm

By the way, event-osd and/or my mod seem to not work when there are special characters in folder. I was reported this bug and I have verified it :(

Very nice, I'll try this and see how you did the options menu exactly. :-)

Very simple in fact ;D Thank you to event-osd ;)

Back home I reformatted my 4GB USB Stick with Panas SD formatter. Now your app works. And now I can use my NDAS without medialibrary activatet, very very very cool...!!! :D

Thank you and best regards

*edit* I really like your app, but I really liked brads farscape.osd.bin with red/black/white menu colours and changeable welcome_background_bg.jpg too...

But when using yours I only get blue menu and wooden blue bg... :-X

Would there probably be any chance to make both compatible? Or change the colours in your app? That would be more than fantastic... ;D

I hope this feature (just one little script to run) could be included in next version of b-rad firmware.
I don't know if Zorander's firmware has or not this feature.
Maybe my script could be optimised to take less CPU as possible.

I was reported of incompatibility between my app and some osd.bin. My current idea is to make a new version that will disable my screens (only the ones with different thumbmail resolution) if I see that another OSD replaces the default one. It will automatically disable one feature of my app.

Looks very nice! I may have a look at how you manage the background switching as I am battling to get it work myself ^^ It seems the osd caching behaves weirdly. I tried symlinks, copy, randomly named backgrounds etc. So far, no trick gives satisfying result. At some point, osd loses track of the backgrounds and I end up having black background. Only when I play and stop the movie I get back the correct backgroun  :o

What's the best way to link another page to your OSD settings menu? What file(s) do I need to modify to link a .xml file to a folder inside /OSD Settings/new folder?

Thanks and great app.
