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).
Anyone heard from Spayz ?
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.
