  • @Coyote: Some thoughts on phone module?

    Hi Coyote,

    Hope you're still on the project

    Just messing around here. Not trying to force anything upon you. But I was thinking that since you're going to build a phone module, maybe I just chip in my thoughts in pictures. Feel free to me anytime you like

    I think it's safe if you merge DVD and video modules together. For me the Video module is sufficient. Just need a little tweak with the menus for DVD. We can reduce the number of buttons in the main menu thus so:



    Now for the Phone module. I am hoping that you will include a quick dial. For my part, I think that the quick dial should be on the main phone menu. Using my handphone, I find that I use quick dial much more often than using dial pad. Not to mention that you should not use phone while driving , therefore the quick dial should minimize distraction from looking for numbers. Thus,



    Now, if we press NUM PAD, the Number pad will appear thus:



    Pressing Quick dial will go back to the main phone menu.

    What do you think?

        Erm. Coyote's next release will let you customize the buttons in the main menu (at least in the to do list it says it's already done). Having said that, when its released just bind the button to zorro's phone module, and feb you can just transffer the skin you made to zorro's phonecontrol soft.

        No point in reinventing the wheel.

                    hmmn... quick dial idea is awesome, can't wait to see this phone menu implemented in mediacar.. one thing tho, i still prefer video and dvd as a separate section 'coz i play my "dvd" from my dvd slim-slot player and "video" for my downloaded mpeg videos from the net, i prefer them to be of different source.

                      @Terran,
                      I am hoping that the quick dial names can be changed with an .ini file or something. But I hope it will not be scrollable, a la radio module. I prefer it to be fixed on buttons. Glancing at the Zorro's Phonecontrol, are the names fixed or scrollable?

                      @danon,
                      With the music module, you can also play audio cd and mp3's can't you? So I thought, why not with videos, right?

                          that's quite true, altho there is not much difference hearing a good mp3 to a cd audio, dvd movies are far too good than short video clips downloaded on the net, even vcd's.

                          it's just to separate the "wow" factor of the dvd, 5.1 surrond, with selectable menus/options, etc. section of mediacar, from a standard video clip 'coz i do have a lot of short video clips downloaded on the net from time to time and as i am aware a lot of members are also doing this, thus merging the two would spoil everything (i hope you follow what i mean)

                            ..as soon as the page loaded and in front of me the pic of the main menu of your 'brush metal skin' febs, i realized that there is no room for additional button, so i came up with the idea that when you press the video button, another menu will show with two buttons to go either dvd, or video, mpeg, vdc (or whatever is suitable name) but then again it now depends on coyote i guess..

                            i wish coyote would provide an uncompiled version of mediacar so that we (programmers/developers) can customize it to our liking...

                              They are scrollable, using a few tricks, like quick jump to alphabet letter, etc..

                              But then , they arenít quick dial, Phonecontrol loads the entire phone list from your phone.

                              Quick Specs:

                              Loads entire phone list from phone
                              5 numbers per contact
                              Can add photo to contact name
                              Dial any number from phone list or dial pad
                              Detects incoming calls and displays name and photo
                              sms sending/receiving
                              Full sinkable / Transparency support
                              etc,etc,etc...

                              It's quite a litle nice app and zorro support it's just amazing

                              Think that with your skin and integration with mediacar/ME/Frodoplayer it would be perfect. And Zorro is still working on it thinking of new features.
