So basically we can finally design any screen with buttons what we want? :D

And nice scrolling controls like on the home screen too? This is going to be very good...

Hi,

very nice addition. If its possible, I'm interested in the C code of your library and/or a few hints on how you proceeded doing this?
trace the dmaosd process and then try and error for intercepting the system/library calls until you found the right ones to modify?

ciao,
elm

Hi elm,

Source code will be available once I make a refactoring on it and transform it into a usable API, it's just a proof of concept for now.
I got to this point by reading tones of good old fasion mips assembly. done 100+ hrs of work on it.


Nice job with appletrailers.
It seems that WDTVExt breaks event-osd. it's next on my list.

PM me pls.

Wow .. wdtv is getting better and better ... ;D ;D

1) Will this support executing scripting on time interval .. ie have weather information updated every 5 seconds

2) Will we be able to change the entire look of wdtv ?  skinable ?

1. Cron does it verry good, why reinvent the wheel?
2. Aren't we already able to skin  the entire look?

1)  Cron will do it but it doesn't have any idea what are you currently doing or where you are ... It will keep executing no matter what ... I take it your app does so it can call a script to update the gui ..  Is your app event based ?

2) I haven't seen any full modication on the wdtv home screen yet .. so far just adding additional information ..

This is getting better each time I check, and the package keeps getting smaller! :-)

Does this mean we can start any application by just clicking on an icon?


We can even better.
I was considering building a plugin system so that ppl could add their custom OSD xml on main screen under menu and optionaly supply data for it using php scripts...

For example a Whether plugin, has a Main Icon and sub icons one for next three days representing forecasting for that day
when you click that icon, you will get to a page where more details are available

how does it sounds?
Yeah, that would be great !!!

Ok ! You are a great man !

Can you divulgate some info for our, the developers of others app.bin.

I'd like a lot to add an icon to enter into my Weecommand application. Is it now ready for testing or is it only a proof of concept?

I think it should be useful to add a proof of concept on how PHP can be used to generate dynamic content for WDTV or execute a shell command and display the output.
Is event-osd needed to use custom icons or to show pages linked from custom icons ?

A plugin based system is on the way.

My guess is that this week a first version will be released.
I cannot give you a specific date because I work on this project on my free time and I'm kind of bussy now working on job related tasks.

The entire WDTV community will be happy to wait for your work to be released.

You had really a good idea. Like with event-osd, with your OSDExt WDTV community can build more adavanced and user-friendly apps.

thanx a lot.

Thanks for the update pibos. I especially like the idea of the @@ variables.
I am sure the wait is going to be worth it.
