I was confused, I originally got into LInux because of it's versatility, I could configure it any way I please. So why all of the sudden products that enforce optional settings? (Not calling the save path optional, I understand it's concept, I just didn't like it being in the same path that UpdateMedia looks in. Kept getting mytht's 10342342_342342.mpg files in my media list. Moving the location of the files worked perfectly.
This is a LinuxMCE thing and it's extremely frustrating, I agree. There really aren't a whole lot of Linux programs that do this. LinuxMCE does this because it's based off of Pluto@Home, which is an appliance. LinuxMCE, however, is supposed to lean more towards customizable distribution, but it's still in its early stages. I think settings like this. in all third-party applications. should be set during install and maybe during a "restore to defaults" option, but otherwise left alone. This would satisfy both the appliance and customizable distribution aspects of LinuxMCE. From what I read, most people agree with me, it's just a matter of dev time.
