portal-xtra1 is an additional plugin for the Hummy custom-portal. Providing an
on-screen clock, and access to some of the custom-portal extra applications.
It's main current feature is a BBC News headline ticker - press 0 to exit the
news ticker and return to the colour button menu.
The TV Chat feature does NOT yet work, yes I will make it grey in the next
release, until I get it working.
This is beta software some functions do not yet work.
iNFO button shows an About screen, press '9' for a hidden 'test' menu, features
in here will change, connecting to the tv.tausoft.co.uk option will load the
latest nightly build that I am running on my box at home.
The News feeder will be updated to offer other RSS News feeds, and adding your
own RSS news feed as a custom option, using an USB keyboard (or the infra-red
remote when I have a software keyboard figured out).
Yes USB keyboards do work - at least on the HDR-T2.
Setting an override on the current custom-portal so xtra1 loads as the default,
and a menu option to load the custom-portal page.
Adding other plugins (such as the portal-foscam) on the menus.
The next built-in app will be a TV chat function allowing users to chat with
other hummy users - using the infra-red remote (and the above mentioned soft
keyboard) or an USB keyboard.
(I have to figure out a user registration system - probably using oAuth - ie
your facebook or google sign-on).
No, I had expected him to join and announce the alternative plugin on the forums.. (Do you think we should ask a mod to change this thread title to start with [portal-xtra1] in case he swings by?).Anyone heard from Spayz ?
Thanks Chris, I did try changing the format, but if I do it disappears altogether! I was just making sure it wasn't just me!The coding needs amending slightly to cope with screens that have overscan. You could try checking if you can change the setting on your TV in the meantime.
I used to be a web application programmer, data analyst, at an engineering company - until I was made redundant four years ago.Who is he then? Been working independently?
