    Meedio Configuration Forum in a Thread :)

    As much as I admire the work being performed by others in developing applications to act as CarPC frontends, there just isn't something that meets my exact needs.

    As as much as I'm relying on those generously provided applications at the moment, I'm slowly building up a Meedio installation that meets my levels of sophistication and simplicity, and I suspect that I'm not the only one.

    This thread is designed for like minded souls to contribute resources, tips and tricks in configuring a Meedio or myHTPC installation to meet their CarPC needs.

    If you wish to start a discussion, please take it to a new thread and hyperlink to this thread - my hope is that this thread will become a resource for all Meedio users. I'll be seeking to have this thread moderated to maintain the purity as a resource (catch that Frodo? ).

    Thanks

    Anyway, I will moderate this thread. We will post only FAQ type answers here.
    Please have discussions elsewhere, and solutions only here.

    Solutions eh?
    Ok, here we go:

    To use PhoneControl.NET with Meedio alter tag <MediaPlayer> in your PhoneCtl.Config.xml and set it to Meedio
    Skinning to go... VisualDesigner2!

    In the video screen - to see the controls...Go to

    Meedio Configuration>Full-time Plug-ins>Video Screen and check 'Show Controls'

    If you want a button that changes the aspect ratio of the video..

    Edit Plugins\General\VideoScreen\OSD.screen

    At the top in the <actions> list add

    <action name="switch-display" global="true">
    <state name="switch-display" caption="Mode" message="video.switch-display-mode" />
    </action>

    and further down, search for
    <action name="dvd-screen" command="" auto="" />
    and replace with
    <action name="switch-display" command="" auto="" />

    Then save the file, with the same name, into the folder of the theme you are using. Leave the original file as was.

    Theme

    Any particular themes you guys are using for meedio? I have recently started using this on my development carpc (which means its not in the car yet) and I like it so far. The closest thing I have found to a touch friendly theme is the HDeeTV theme. I am new to meedio so I am not sure if there are better options out there.

    im looking to use meedio also. i use it at home... cant wait to get my carputer built it will be here this week.... so i will get the os loaded and such soon after that. i mainly want to use the carputer like i do at home.... only as a external source to my main system.... not as a replacement to my alpine head unit (or denon receiver at home).

    my main use for it will be... GPS and Music.

    for music... i will use the JRMC plugin. i love that program and the reason i went with meedio in the firstplace was that there was a pluging for JRMC.

    for GPS... i want to do 2 things.... im not sure how i will achieve it though.
    1)i want to be able to do driving directions. the Delorme software i have no isnt very good with driving directions. i am looking towards D3.

    2) i do a fair bit of backcountry driving... so i want to be able to use topo maps. i know delorme has them.... just not sure how to integrate them.

    down the road adding stuff like phone interface and such would be nice... but right off the bat... just music and gps.

    my main problem... im not a developer.... i dont know how to do a plugin.. or a theme. at home i use the PBox theme... i like the way it looks and runs. we will see if it works on a small screen

    lets try and bump this thread

    Cool glad to see someone else will be using it. It definately has a ton of features and a ton of plugins. You can do anything with it. I am surprised there isn't a bigger carpc following with it. I think if more people here knew about it they would use it.
