I'll look into the remote issue. pretty sure Its because i ask for the remote when the program launches and it looses it when it sleeps should be pretty simple to have it request the remote on wake.
I guessing that the music videos that don't play are protected yes? NBB and any other third party application are currently unable to playback protected videos and since it cannot play them it ignores them and won't display them. the rule of thumb is if you can play the video in finder then NBB should play it.
EDIT: there I fixed it so that the remote is reinitialized after system wake. thanks for pointing that out. should have a minor release out in a day or two for you to download.
I have the script to open iGuidance...its pretty simple it just launches it. I think it will be okay because iGuidance has a built in fullscreen button that could be used if it doesnt launch centered or whatever. The only thing I dont have, which you said you could do is the button or whatever to get back to NBB. I'll put it on here when I get home.
sounds good. where and how big do you want the button to take you back?
Not to be a pain as I have suggested this solution before, but how about having NBB put a transparent window with a big, transparent button on it that overlays the display portion of iGuidance. You can see through it to see iGuidance, then if you touch the button, it returns to the main menu screen of NBB.

that sounds like a great idea. let me see if I understand it.
basically you want a window with a hole/holes cut out so that you can see/interact with the application in the background correct? did I miss what you want?
how does all this work with iguidance having to run in fusion or parallels? I have neither so I will be shooting in the dark
Edit: after rereading your post I think i indeed missed what you were saying. even so it still sounds like I will need to be given some coordinates in order to get it right
I would look like this drawing. The NBB window is depicted in black with yellow line (of course, it would actually be transparent). The blue 'big button' would also be transparent but would be on the NBB window. The NBB window and button sit as the 'top' window but you can see through them. Touching the area of the screen where the window/button is would return you to the main menu screen of NBB.
It might just be easier to do the same thing but just overlay the entire screen. You just wouldn't be able to mess with the controls of iGuidance.
yeah i guess thats how i got confused. I assumed that you would need to interact with guidance, thats why I was thinking i would have to create a frame that fits around the guidance window. I assume apple script can reposition/resize windows.
whatever you guys feel is best. it doesn't matter to me.
Applescript can resize and reposition windows as long as you know what the name of the window is. It can be tricky to figure out, but I know it can be done because my applescript front end was able to do it.
I had no idea you had/have an apple script FE. what happened with that? if you don't mind my asking.
also have you had a chance to try your radio with NBB yet? i'm anxious to see if it will work
