Version 2.8 sighting

I had a connection from version 2.8 connect to my server, is that out yet? Has anyone else seen that?

Not out (yet, AFAIK), and anyone in the beta program is under NDA. It's probably not out of the question to see the occasional beta user in the logs. They are probably power users and have lots of channels instaleld, and are surely expected to try all the channels they do have installed.

Re: Version 2.8 sighting

Well, if they are, here's my v.2.8 wishlist:

Allow negative numbers for Posterscreen art X & Y so one can position something partially off the screen to the left

Instantly update theme as soon as the values change, or provide something like screen.update() or theme.update()
How about allowing an x & y posterscreen image size control while we are at it...

Audioplayer.GetCurrentUrl()
Audioplayer.GetCurrentPlayTimeRemaining()

hmm. that would be all for now Smiley Happy

Re: Version 2.8 sighting

At any given time, there may be a couple of versions in internal or external beta.

Patrick;

Any possibility of support for live streaming WMA in the near future?

Thanks.

I think you're the one person that's asked for it, so it's extraordinarily unlikely. What content is it you were looking at?

I would beg to differ on that... Smiley Wink I even sent sample streams a few months back.
My Sirius|XM channel would benefit tremendously from native WMA stream support.

Re: Version 2.8 sighting

Sorry, I read that as WMV, not wma. So, less unlikely, but not in the immediate near future.
