        In playlist editor, can you include directory mode? (or did I miss something?)

          What is 41? Is that the feature to allow video playback / applications to be disabled via an external event ?

            No, that is the ability to disable a certain mode from the loop, ie, disable genre view.

                  OK, I request it. BTW, I just posted a simple circuit to support the feature. You can see it here.

                    Okay this is another Day/Night mode enhancement request. There are days when it is overcast and the nightmode would be nice to have. How about a quick switch button that allows us to toggle between day and night skins?

                    Any guesses when 1.9 will be rolling out? I cant wait to see all of your fine work and donate to the cause again.

                      Another feature that would be kind of cool is a Vehicle Maint Log. This would basically be a log of when you do Oil Changes, Brake Pads, Filters including the date, mileage, location, and cost. Kind of fits in with your MPG log.

                        Ability to sort by Track Number.

                        I'd love to see more of a directory based system kinda like Media Engine.

                          I'm gonna have to agree on that sorting of MP3's

                          I just went camping... 225 mile drive... and that was the thing
                          my 3 buds complained about the most... diggin thru the directory
                          listing using the small scroll buttons... having the search keyboard
                          keep popping up from missed scrolls... and the alphabetical sorting
                          of the mp3 files... they loved everything else.. as do I ....

                          but when the whining got too loud.. I loaded up media engine and
                          they fell in love with the large scroll buttons... and easy listings of
                          the mp3's in all their proper album directories.

                          And when I'm driving the vehicle... I would love to have those large scroll
                          buttons available in FrodoPlayer.

                          Also, we noticed that in any Artist Discography folder, it doesnt list the
                          subfolders when you pick the main one. You have to double click it
                          to get those albums folders inside to show, then select from there.

                          You revamp this User Interface for directory style listings, and I gotta say
                          this app is perfect


                          And some Skinning requests....

                          I think someone may have asked for this already... but I'll repeat....

                          Working on my skins... I've come across the need to have the types of lists
                          selectable... Instead of left/right arrows for (dir/album/video/cd).. give me
                          access to variables I can assign to buttons. That way I can just have
                          (Video)(mp3(directory))(mp3(all music))(cd) etc... selectable by buttons.

                          Also... give me variables like Track Name, Album Name, Album Art, etc that I
                          can use to really spice up my skin... I believe now, that stuff is locked to boxes
                          you've predefined. With those & transparent backgrounds, I could just place them anywhere!

                          PHEW!!! long post... sorry THANKS FOR THE GREAT APP FRODO!!!

                            what about a feature for wireless internet users. when their wireless card picks up a hotspot, it could have a small button with a color change, saying that their pc was connected to the internet.


                            MPG calculator sounds sweet.


                            maybe a clock mode, where after a certain amount of time, a huge digital or analog clock, fades in smoothly, and scrolls the song that is playing in the bottom.

                            just ideas

                              I don't know the difficulty of this request... but it would be cool...

                              I got internet on my carpc from my T616 using bluetooth...
                              using that have a daily weather/3 day forcast screen...

                              I'm sure there is other cool things you could grab from the web.. but I can't
                              think of them now....

                              My internet usage on cellphone isnt really cheap.. 4meg & then pay per kilobyte....
                              so having something that just loaded my weather would rock instead of me paying
                              bandwidth for ads and the mainpage of whatever weather site.

                              I got this idea from the weather they have implemented in XBMC for the xbox....
