Well, I managed to fix that "auto show osd panel", didn't use the workaround from the confluence mod but thought about something else myself and that worked like a charm.
Also been busy with the "custom widget" request. Thanks to Unfledged (author of skinshortcuts) a little issue was very quickly fixed and I have a beta version for you to try the concept out...
I created it like this:
1. In the menu editor page, assign a widget to a shortcut.
2. In the dialog where you can choose widgets, choose "user defined widget"
3. Now there should appear a button in the list or the right menu which lets you define the widget.
4. Just like with the submenus you can add in any item you want.
Version 2.1.20 (helix 3.1.20) is now uploaded to the beta repo, should be available in a few minutes.
Please give it a try and let me know!
Wow you are on a roll!
I think the on-screen display at playback works for me it just goes by so quickly I can barely see it - really I see something blink for just a moment and then playback starts.., maybe you could increase the delay and length of display time?
I was able to create my own custom widget wow that worked great!!
One possible bug is now my movie widget doesn't seem to work - it displays Items but if you try to select them nothing happens.
I haven't tried any other widgets since up until now I only ran movie and weather widgets - weather widget seems to work as it has in the past.
Regarding the custom widget -
Just two things
the sideways triangle has no function and if you select it by mistake you may think it is not working right.
And The displayed picture in the upper right hand corner is out of aspect ratio for the tile on the homepage.
Once again incredible work and many thanks for making this great skin!!
Your development is outpacing my thoughts for ideas :-)
I will give another ponder and see what I can come up with hehe
