Is there anyway to get rid of the extra stuff that isn't needed, so it would look something like:
Straight Up - Helicopters in Action [11-16-5] (5252Mb)
Supernatural [11-16-5] (5313Mb)
I love being able to see an easy date readout, but it would be nice if a space was added between the end of the title and the start of the date brackets.
Also, I don't need to see that the files are in 'E:\\Recordings\\' as it clutters up the playlist. If it is possible to hide that, it would be great. Same for the file extension.
If any of these requests are already possible and I am just too daft to figure them out from the .ini file, let me know. If not, please consider them in upcoming releases. Thanks!
When you say 'menu' I assume you are talking about the display MYHD thows up on your TV that shows all the programs in the play list. Those are the filenames that MYHD has to use to get to the program. I have no control over the folder and drives and therefore have no control over their getting displayed. I can't control what/how MYHD displays the content of that list. Even tho I create it.
But I also have wondered about seeing a cleaner list display so I'll do some research. I know the system has a cryptic name for the system directory. I'll look into seeing if an application can create and use the same mechanism. No matter what the drive and folder are the list might look like
$MYHD01$Program Name.tp "$MYHD01$ referrring to one given drive:\\folder
$MYHD02$Another Program.tp would be a program on another drive:\\folder combination. That way the program names will all be aligned. Is that what you were looking for? Not sure about hiding the extension.
On the space before the date,,,,, any input from others?
It looks like you are having the date inserted and I see the year is one digit. Sure enough I display one digit if the mo/da/yr is less than 10. Its very easy to make sure dates are two digits if anybody cares. In my first pass at the code I was thinking about keeping the file name as small as possible and letting the slashes separate the digits. Any cares here?
