I used EMC (Enhanced Movie Center) and it has its own "movieretitle" with a virtual keyboard.

Now I am missing a virtual keyboard with "movieretitle".

 

Without the virtual keyboard it is very difficult to alter longer descriptions etc.

 

It would be perfect if it was possible to show both types of the virtual keyboard, the keypad-keyboard and the full virtual keyboard.

I saw this while testing the VTi image and it was very helpful and easy to use because you could easily choose which keyboard you prefer (jump between input methods).

 

I am using the skin PLi-FullNightHD and the input fields in "movieretitle" are very small but there would be much more space for larger input fields.

It would be easier to alter longer descriptions. Maybe that would be also applicable for HD skins.

 

Thanks.

Does the teletext button not work to get the virtual keyboard during the rename.

OpenPLi/plugins update today. But the changes are still not released.

When will these changes become active/released?

Changes like this will only be released when the present Develop image becomes the new release. At least in normal cases.


Mijn schotel is een T90 met 10 LNB's. Daarnaast voor de fun nog een draaibaar systeem met een Triax TD 78.

Dreamboxen heb ik niet meer. Verder nog een een VU+ duo2 met 500Gb harddisk + een VU+ Uno, Zero, Solo 4K, Ultimo 4K, Zero 4K, Uno 4Kse. + ook nog een Xtrend ET4000. Daarnaast heb ik ook nog diverse andere modellen w.o. een Formuler F4, ET8500, ET7500, Mut@nt 2400HD, Xsarius Fusion HD se en verder nog wel het e.e.a. waarmee op verzoek vanalles wordt getest. Iemand moet het tenslotte doen. ;) :)

Voor centrale opslag van media gebruik ik een Qnap 219P met tweemaal 2 Tb harddisks.

Thank you, but what is the time frame for a new release. Do I have to wait for 7.3?

So I have to wait months or even longer until I get a virtual keyboard in movieretitle? That's ridiculous.

You can offer your services? Or pay some of us so we can make more time available?

I contributed already and planned more, but with these extremely large timescales until changes/bug fixes take effect, motivation drops significantly. That's very sad.

But I understand. It is like it is.

 

I will have to use Enhanced Movie Center again.

We don't have the hands to provide support on develop images, which is why we stopped releasing them. We can tell people a million times they are development and therefore may be unstable, they still install it and complain when it doesn't work.

 

And we also don't have the hands to individually test each and every commit on all supported hardware, cherry pick them into an rc branch (to make sure there are no dependencies that break), and then do it again into a release image.

 

It is very difficult to find people that are not only willing to give up their free time for open source (which some want to as they have a personal interest, like your contributions), but are also willing to pick up work that doesn't give them personal gain at all, such as all the admin work related to building, servers and release management.

 

So yes, unfortunately it is what it is.
