Hi,

!!!DoSomething configuration of MN is not supported anymore!!!
!!!IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS RUNNING WITH MN PLEASE DO THIS PRIOR POSTING!!!
if you have problems using MN try following

1. delete (maybe disabling will be enough, if not, then delete) all plugins using Reloader (or better delete from drive manually)
2. reboot
3. download MN using Reloader (WDTVExt plugins menu entry)
4. reboot
5. !!!enable!!! MN plugin using Reloader
6. reboot
7. try to play some video

if it's still not working, post results of commands
Code: Select all
ls -la /wdtvext/plugins/user-plugins/MediaNavigationV2

Code: Select all
cat /tmp/dmaosd.log | grep Nav | tail -n50

Code: Select all
cat /wdtvext/plugins/user-plugins/MediaNavigationV2/mn.config


2010-11-06:
MediaNavigation v3.1

+ added DS-lite (enabled you to run shell "one-liners" from within MN)
+ sample for remote NAS power management and shares management added (see DSLITE.dslite file)
+ added some configuration options for SEARCH key modes
+ FILESEARCH mode available from withing FILEBROWSE mode by clicking SEARCH key
+ enhanced List controls behavior (PREV/NEXT item page skipping)
- removed some leftover xml elements (does it make "ghost dot" to dissapear?)
- small bugs resolved


2010-10-31: MediaNavigation v3.0

+ added 2 new SEARCH key modes
- FileBrowse
- rTorrent basic management (while browsing torrents press OPTION key to access torrent submenu, please be patient when entering this mode)
+ added internal MN configuration on OPTION key (DS not needed anymore for configuration thus won't be probably updated in the future)
- you can access mode specific options while in-mode usage by pressing OPTION key (currently CHAPTERS, SKIP, VOLUME)
- all other config option are available under INFO mode (again, press OPTION)
+ now when chapters/cues are not found, chapter list is build from file list
- please don't report bug in media info not updated when media is changed from within MN as this is due uPnP server not updating metadata

2010-10-24: MediaNavigation v2.8

+ added turning LEDs off while playing media (for us who has not time to try autores)
+ added big list for chapters displaying (you can choose via DS if chapters will be shown only in info bar, or only as list, or both)
+ replaced zero time by left of progress bar to current time (we all know, that media should start at zero, are we?)
+ added new features under SEARCH button (their order can be configured via DS MNv2.8 snippet)
+ 1. Reminder (anyone else has cook/watch movies evenings?)
- you can select time when popup message should remind us. Then you can select 5min snooze time if you want
+ 2. Search for files
- new osd elements will appear
- inside virtual keyboard enter search criteria for files search
- multiple criteria to match you delimit by space (all space delimited words have to match, search is case insensitive)
- this search will search for matches in file path also, not only in filenames
- navigation inside virtual KB is straight forward
- LEFT/RIGHT keys moves cursor
- PREV/NEXT deletes keys by left/right of cursor
- first 20 match are returned into List
- into which you navigate using SEARCH key again
- then choose file to play
+ added mn key processing disable/enable by pressing EJECT key. when MN disabled, EJECT is only key which MN process, all others are passed to other plugins/osd
- this should solve some collisions with other plugins
(to enable coexist with SubDownloader, please replace this.trigger_key=80 with this.trigger_key=53 in SubDownloader.plugin.js to change SD trigger key to SEARCH)
+ ... don't remember what else

INSTALLATION:
- update from SVN via Reloader (WDTVExt plugins menu entry)
- update/download MediaNavigation 2.8 config tool from within DoSomething plugin to be able to configre latest additions

2010-10-17: MediaNavigation 2.5

+ added moving dots in progress bar for current time and target skipping time
+ added chapter marks in progress bar
+ added media filename/info (resolution/bitrate/filesize)
+ added INFO mode which displays actual playing time and playback status (accessible on ENTER as default INFO bar)
+ ability to disable default INFO bar from configuration
+ change INFO bar position
+ RESUME can just disable default wdtv resuming
+ now it's possible to configure what will keys pressed in which mode (MN displayed/not displayed)
-> you can have different functions depending on MN visible (i.e. standard subtitles moving when MN not visible, and Volume when visible on UP/DOWN keys)
-> can set if keys will bring MN to screen (will function as keys/MN action)
- !complete separate! configuration for AUDIO/VIDEO pages
- changed configuration to configuration file in MNv2 plugin folder due to instability when config used (yes guys, that seem to be a problem with lost config sometimes)
- ......

INSTALLATION:
- redownload/update MN from SVN via Reloader
- update of DoSomething plugin from SVN is !!!strongly recommended!!!
- download MEDIANAVIGATION25 snippet for this version configuration

...if you like it, consider a donation using link below. Thanks.

new version of MediaNavigation is available in SVN plugins download (Reloader).
!!! Delete previous MN version !!!

2010-10-10: MediaNavigation 2.2 release
- added resume point save (automatic, on ask)
- added resume (automatic, on ask)
- added external mkv xml chapter file parsing

2010-10-08:

MediaNavigation v2.1

- now you can configure all key pairs (REW/FWD, PREV/NEXT, LEFT/RIGHT, UP/DOWN) to control one of following

- MN Time Skip
- MN Chapters
- MN Volume
- Standard WDTV keys (no processing in MN, keys will be handled by other plugins/wdtv itself)
- Standard WDTV Playback Speed
- Standard WDTV Direct file skip on PREV/NEXT

2010-10-06:

Changes:
- configuration via DoSomething plugin MEDIANAVIGATION snippet
- configurable keys processing (REW/FWD|PREV/NEXT) handling (Standard/MediaNavigation)
- configurable processing (On Timer/On Enter)
- configurable timeout when processing On Timer
- configurable skip times increments (suggest another usable set to update)

Adding this as new version because of lot of changes to retain previous version if needed and to post issues related to this version.

Enjoy

Nice I tried it out tomorrow :D

Must the old MN in .wdtvext-plugins dir manually deleted or goes this automatic when downloading from SVN ?

it's a separate plugin, so old must be deleted or at least disabled
update/download will not overwrite the old plugin

Thx

tested and everthing looks just fine.
I get beter and better !

good work

One thing, When pressing the up / down arrow keys",
appears "vo..lu..me" This works with the stereo setting, No (more) for the HDMI setting in Audio/Video menu.
No clue if its to MN related.

Great work sailort! Configurability over doSomething snippet rocks! Love that onenter/timer choise, I've chosen timer, 1s :D .
None of the keys is on STD now.
I'll wait for FWD STD functionality to be implemented when right arrow key is pressed, instead of MNV goto_next_chapter :roll: ...

glad you enjoying it. Anyway what you have on your mind with STD functionality? If it's STD, it will process keys as standard wdtv without MN. Do you have some more strange idea? :D

No, nothing strange really :? ...
I want to have MN functionality as it is now, meaning REV & FWD by MN, PREV & NEXT also by MN.
Above that, I also want original REV & FWD functionality (with visible frames x2...x4...x8...x16) by LEFT & RIGHT arrow buttons since I never use chapter browsing.
But if you find it impossible to make it configurable, nevermind... I'll live without it.
I just tried mp3 navigation, nice work again.

let me think about it :D seems crazy to have all key-pairs configurable to function, but with current code it's not impossible :-) should I create a PayPal account? :lol:
