Hi folks, I'm not sure if this is the right place for this topic but I'm pretty sure that a moderator will move it if needed.
I'm practicing Mac OS X programming and I wrote a little utility to do one simple thing that cannot be done with the standard mede8er firmware: changing the order in which favo(u)rites are shown on the screen.
With Favourite Manager for OS X you can:
1) see every favs on your mede8er in the same order as shown on your TV. Handles network, USB and card. Should handle internal disk (HDD) for 450X2/500X2 users...
2) Move them around with drag 'n' drop
3) Easily change the genre icons for any given fav
4) Delete single favorite
5) Backup (and restore, of course) favorites stored in your m8r flash memory
6) Write configuration back to mede8er (flash memory, disks and card)
The application has been developed for personal use and tested on my own 400X2; this means that I've no internal HDD to test it upon, so any feedback about this will improve the app quality. Also this application has not been tested against mede8er model using old processors like the 500X series. It may work, who knows... :-)
*) Mac OS X 10.6 and later
*) a nnnX2 series mede8er
*) NAS enabled
*) Web remote enabled
*) LAN (cable or wifi) to connect your Mac AND the mede8er (same subnet, of course)
If anyone on OS X is interested in beta testing it (or use, for that matter), I'll be glad to forward him a copy of the application.
I cannot put on the forum as its size (668 kbytes) is beyond the attachment limit of 510 kb....UPDATE:
