  • Great Software!

    This may have been mentioned before, but I just came across some software that was meant for Home Theatre PC's, but it would be PERFECT for CarPC's as well. It has beautiful skinning abilities, modules/addons, is Girder compatible.

    Anyway, it is called Media-Box. I found it while searching around about Girder and about HTPC components.

    If this has been brought up before, and is liked or disliked, please post your comments regarding it.

    www.media-box.org

    Thanks!

            Damn! Looks like a name change is in order - I thought mediabox was so original...

              edit the skin ini file using notepad it is located here C:\Program Files\Media-BOX\Skins\Media-BOX\MediaBOX-800\skin.ini


              The existing section of the skin.ini file looks like this:

              [Button4]
              Name=My Music
              Description=Media-BOX Audio Jukebox
              EXE=
              EXEParams=
              Top=168
              Left=565
              image=launcher-full-iready-sna-24.jpg
              imageover=launcher-full-iready-sna-27.jpg
              imagedown=launcher-full-iready-sna-25.jpg
              imagedisabled=launcher-full-iready-sna-26.jpg


              changed ini

              Button4]
              Name=My Music
              Description=Winamp
              EXE=c:\program files\winamp\winamp.exe (use the actual path to winamp.exe here)
              EXEParams=
              Top=168
              Left=565
              image=launcher-full-iready-sna-24.jpg
              imageover=launcher-full-iready-sna-27.jpg
              imagedown=launcher-full-iready-sna-25.jpg
              imagedisabled=launcher-full-iready-sna-26.jpg


              same thing for powerdvd you just change button one info

                When I run the setup program the buttons for Audio, MAME and photos are all greyed out. Any ideas why? And when I run the program I cant get to anything but shut down and videos.

                  this is because you haven't linked any of the buttons on the main screen to any programs. see my earlier post on editing the skin.ini file. if your gonna use winamp for audio the grayed out options on the setup screen really dont matter. tey the faqs on the media-box site

                    all you are doing is editing the skin.ini to link to other programs. for mame edit the skin.ini button3 and point it to the location of your emulator.

                      Arby, or any of you other fellas. Why don't you all ever come into the efnet irc channel and chat? Makes it so much easier to chat about the very subject we all enjoy

                      Oh well. I have semi given up on media-box. I was hoping it was an app with stuff built in, not just a fancy interface, though it does look good

                      Anyway, I may see about purchasing cobra 4 when it arrives, or if someone else completes the "vaporware" apps that have been started.

                        My (was) mediabox software isn't quite vapourware, just nearly! I've got much less time now school is back to write it, however I'm trying to finish it sometime this year.

                        Cheers - Cobra IV should be cool
