With my previous xbmc driver, there use to be a 30 sec /10 min skip feature with the arrows on the remotes. This one does not seem to have. Is there anyway I could have this feature on this xbmc driver?

Not possible with the new release of xbmc.

You get 30 second skips by pressing fwd\rwd
Or you can hold to fast forward and rewind 16x speed I believe.

I'm very disappointed with this driver, I read someone else complaining about this a year ago. The 10 min skip is one of the best features (for me) about my previous Xbmc) especially when you want to scroll through movies. Worst thing about this is that I could still do this with my PC keyboard. What the use having this driver when I would still need to sit with my keyboard trying to get all the functions. I'm rather install my older free driver. Don't get me wrong, I'm not going to claim my money back because I honestly think it's a good thing supporting these developers but I'm definitely very disappointed. I don't see how recluse did not fix this with the first complaints a year ago, and why it's still not fixed. I basically bought a new driver with less functions.

Its not the driver. Its the new JSON XBMC interface I believe.

Which version of XBMC though? I believe this feature is gone in Frodo and the new JSON-RPC.. (I could be wrong as I didn't develop this.) But this is my understanding that the new JSON-RPC doesn't have this feature so the driver can't use it. The old EDEN release and driver probably works for this.

Just a heads up.. you may lose this feature if you update your XBMC. Again.. don't shoot the messenger :-) Just trying to help/inform.

Nope waybefore that. It was one of the first driversAln made for XBMC V9.0, Thus the reason i dont mindpaying for this one but i'm definitly reloading my old driver this weekend. I'm so use working will a movie is on, coming back and with a single touch skipping back 10 min. with this driver i need to sit with my keyboard nextto me too. Just very irrating, Xbmc v9 was playing the movies just fine.

So Just fair warning.. If that feature is critical to you... don't update to XBMCv12 Frodo :-)

Wanted to add. i think the old Eden driver is available in the ZIP.. Which may still have the feature? No idea Recluse will need to weigh in on that.

IT'S NOT THE FEATURE THAT IS MISSING,BECAUSE IT'S WORKING ON THE KEYBOARD, IT'S THE DRIVER THAT'S NOT LINKING THESE FUNCTIONS. AND YES I'M GOING TO DOWNGRADE.

Honestly, I mean no disrespect to stormwatch, at all. I know his just trying to help. So please accept my apologies if I came down too rough.

@ Ryan : how you doing, it's been a while.

HTTP-API is deprecated in XBMC Frodo and as such only pure JSON-RPC commands are available. UNfortunately you cannot send keyboard commands to XBMC via JSON RPC.

if you want to have that functionality again you will need to revert to XBMC Eden and utilise my older Eden driver (the driver license you have purchased works for both).

Trust me if I could put it in I would have (my wife complains about this one all the time).

Also we did fix it in the Eden driver. Again if you like that feature use the Eden driver packaged with the frodo driver and revert to xbmc Eden.

Alan,

I have been using my dune media player primarily and so my htpc with xmbc (eden) is primarily off. Would you have any advice for my situation in regards to the controller constantly pinging xbmc (frodo) when the htpc is off? For instance, is there a setting to turn off the constant pinging?

thanks,

tum

ps: haven't seen it mentioned before here, but at CES, dune showed a new dune 3dmax and it was running xbmc:)
