So like, what are people's biggest gripes / complaints at this point?

its tooooooo silent!

I have been:
Working on the disconnection / Reconnection code / Quick Reload code - all platforms
Working on Live Tv screen for small UI (phones)
Working on Qt5 STB skin which applies to RPI, OS X, Qt5 in general - keyboard handling
tons of other smallish things i dont remember.
Security screen for tablet / phone

-LB

Ok, since you are asking :
Booting/ shutting down md
Switching tv-channels..perhaps I'm doing something wrong?
My latest toy..IP camera. The old orbiters on Windows handles it nicely
Buttons for power need adjustment (display on, display off...I guess)
Handling for skin-updates...would it be possible, that for example qorbiter checks upon startup, if skins need an update and performs it, if needed?....I know I'm a spoiled brat...

If something else comes to mind, I'll let you know :-)

Booting / Shutting off MD. Do you mean the buttons?

Ip camera  - what specifically is going wrong? I will take a look as my latest pass on that screen wasnt exactly...detailed shall we say :)

Noted on power buttons

Not without doing some nasty things that probably shouldn't be done. ill try to see if there is a better way for updates to be initiated from the application.

Thanks as always for the feedback and testing.

 booting/ shutting down md - seems I don't know where, or if it's possible at present
The IP-camera just lags controls

So far:
- qt5 version crashes after the loading screen, does not work on my android tablets
- qt4 version runs ok with some issues:
-> conrolling tv ends in endless loop on the md (vdr). The vdr on the md tries to switch channels continously beginning with channel no. 1. Only after a complete restart of the md my vdr is controllable again.
-> no floorplans
-> the description of media files is too big (font size)
-> accesss to the media files is very slow
-> where are the scenarios (sleeping, lighting, security)?
-> only two working skins

I dont have vdr, but I will take a look and see what could be causing the issue. i dont send anything in a loop, so thats very interesting.

What device (s) are you using? i cant really diagnose without knowing that. Also, are you sure you are up to date? Maverick recently had an issue that sounds similar.

I will question the 'access to media files is very slow'. On my work machine 40 miles away, its pretty fast. Would you say its slower than the onscreen orbiter? How is your wifi?

Technically there are 0 working skins because none are complete. Ive done the hard work of implementing the interface, care to join in on the "easy" part of the UI?  ;D

Scenarios. On the tablet form factor, there is a row at the top that says lights, media, etc. On the phone screen its right in front. Is the device set to a be in a room?

Floorplans. Press and hold the scenario buttons.

Tablet : http://imgur.com/45JM97p

Lastly, I recommend using the Smokey skin on android tablets. ill be changing it to the default skin soon.

I tried downloading from here http://langstonball.com/linuxmce/item/15-qorbiter-downloads, which was unsuccessful.
By the way, if that is going to be your primary download-site, could you perhaps edit your first post in the thread? It would make it easier to find. In addition to that, could you also provide a link for the qt5 variant, unless you have reason not to do this at this time.
As for the qorbiter, when selecting a movie for playback, I get only a fileid displayed, instead of movie details....or this this skinning issue?

Anyways, thanks for the opportunity to test your software..always a pleasure.
