    Things I'd like to see added

    the other thread was getting a bit big so i'd figured this would be a good place for me and others to list features and changes they would like to see in the newer version.

    I'd like an option to turn off the touch screen controls. I don't have one and they take up space.

    I'd like the playlists to be in alphabetical order. Right now they almost seem to be listed by date created.

    Oh and when you load your playlist maybe auto start the first song? Or maybe make that just an option so a user can select in config if they want to auto load the first song or not.


    I think thats about it for now. Every release is making great progress. You guys are working your butts off.. thanks.

    You can turn off touch screen controls in the menu under the appreance tab. You can access the settings menu by clicking on the clock at the bottom of the screen

    About the touchscreen buttons, go to settings by clicking on the clock display on the main menu and unchecking 'Touchscreen Mode Enabled' on the Appearance tab.

    I'd like the playlists to be in alphabetical order. Right now they almost seem to be listed by date created.
    The playlist order is based on the order in which windows returns the filenames to MediaEngine. In a nutshell, they're organized alphabetically by filename - if your files aren't named similarly to their id3 tags then you will notice odd ordering. If you're noticing odd ordering in folders of albums, try changing the filenames to XX-artist-song where XX is the two digit track number i.e. 01, 02. This will give you correct ordering based on their track number. I've written some of the code that will give us the ability to re-sort the list based on user preferences, but it's not something really high on the list right now.

    Just discovered the file ordering problem you speak of. It only happens on FAT filesystems which I never use. I beginning to wonder if everyone else was just nutz. :-> CarComp and I are working on a fix for this and hope to have a release out very soon.
