    I don't record video i've been trying to create a plugin to do this and i did but it uses standard windows dialog to set the codec and the properties to it so i really don't like it.

    It is skinnable (still working out the skinning code) but the problem with my tv tuner is it needs someone with XP SP1 or higher as im using windows functions to do this and not flyvideo like dragon used (altho i might do one using flyvideo if i can work out how to embed it)

    well I do have XP pro SP2 in my machine plus is better if we don't have to use any other APP to interface with the plugin.

    So let me know because at this rate (dragon doesn't reply to my request) and kind of stuck.

    Thanks..

    The tv plugin doesn't use any outside programs altho the cd burning plugin will need nero to be installed.

    I have the problem with not being able to set properties on certain things like codecs etc so the windows dialogs pop up for it and they look ugly and aren't very touchscreen friendly.

    When i get the recording utilty done i'll move the code over to the TV plugin.

    I would like to know does everyone want the tv plugin to either have a up / down channel? or have icons for each station (you add the stations logo to the skin)

    I'll have to workout a way for the user to find the freq of the tv stations aswell.

    For me will be better up/down because we are talking aerial antennas here so there be just the local stations. just my .2 cents

    1. windows wireless network connection manager/conneciton manager in general - a nice graphical representation for each device you have installed, and the potential connections. i hate exiting the software to change settings

    2. backup camera(s). plug in to have windows or full screen display of # of cameras user has

    3. Sync manager - i use vice versa plus, but something that was a skinned plugin or maybe just sends commands to those programs..

    4. just a gps->city or gps->zip code converter. this info could be sent to the weather/traffic plug ins or used for whatever it is u use

    5. traffic plug in. We need to standardize some stuff here people we should come up with a list of the states, traffic sites, and then make a db of the camera locations and correspond this to zip codes. also traffic/construction general info for major highways would be sweet.. throw it into a db then the gps->zip code/area converter will find the ones closest to you !

    Awww you are baseing the weather and traffic on me?

    OK, OK

    1. Auto connect for Wifi then action. For example if open network is detected automatically update weather, traffic, download email, check skype, yahoo, google chat etc. close connection.

    2. Total volts/amps/watts being drawn on 12v and 5v rails.

    3. Bootable XP USB Flashdrive

    4. Quick Diagnostic Suite - USB test, Video test, Voltage test, codec test, Drive test, Gamma test, Ground test, cable test etc.

    5. Database transferred to MP3Car with info on power supply, processor type and speed, memory, temperature readings, time stamped with month date etc with benchmarks. Let's start recording speeds and feeds.
