Adding file syncronisation to Media Engine
(Another idea which has probably already been discussed). I guess most people have their carputers starting and sleeping pretty much based on the ignition state. Based upon this assumption, if I want to copy files onto my carputer from my home over a wireless LAN, the car would have to be left running.
How about adding a directory synchronisation system to Media Engine.
On my home PC (call it home) I have a share called Media Engine:
It would be good if I could be sat in my car outside my house and select a Synchronise option in Media Engine. This option would connect to the configured share //Home/MediaEngine and would synchronise the Media directory on my carputer with the //Home/MediaEngine directory. Based upon the directory //Home/MediaEngine, it would either delete files from my carputer or add files to my carputer. Once the files are synchronised, the db in Media Engine could then be updated accordingly.
The beauty is that I can manage the files (i.e. add / remove) from they comfort of my home, and then when I go out to my car, before driving off I would just sync up.
Again, pretty easy functionality to add and I don't mind developing this if I was able to assist with development of Media Engine.
