the LinuxMCE just blows me away with the features and flexibility available but I have one HUGE request (ok, maybe 2)
i have would be the ability to perhaps assign either certain directories or use mpaa R and up ratings
to restrict certain content unless a code is entered. while i want my children to have access to most content, i can't allow them to access EVERYTHING. i had a very crude way of doing it in media portal using windows user share acceess, but it would be nice to see it implemented properly in LinuxMCE, plus no way to easily change samba user in the interface, right? i am not as concerned with locking access to tv shows as i am home when these types of shows are on, but the movies need to be regulated.
of course this feature should be optional so only those that want to impose restrictions can.
perhaps it could be set so that after being unlocked, it would remain in that state until either powered off or inactive (no media playing or activity) for 20 min.
surely i'm not the only parent who has this concern? or am I?
i also would like to stress how much i agree with an earlier post about tv shows and episodic content. it would be nice if we could have another separate section (TV shows?) for these vids and also maybe specify a naming convention to differentiate and organize shows ie "name of show SxxExx - episode title
although not entirely necessary I think it should simply have one icon/picture for the entire series, then once that's selected we could drill down to the season and episode. also, is there any web resource to get tv episode info and descriptions off the web? imdb only has one entry for each series
That would be a huge help to those of us who like to keep shows for later watching or sharing with friends.
i'm in no way demeaning the quality of software here, just putting in my $.02
thanks for reading my long post
