With this plugin, you can quickly restore your channel list(s) using the TD's File Manager without resorting to ftp'ing any backups to /var/share/dvb2001.

1). Make a new dir on hd /mnt/hd/data/settings
2). Copy from /var/share/dvb2001/ favourites.txt, services.dat and user-tp, to dir : /mnt/hd/data/settings

Place the script " restore channels" in same dir and (chmod 755)

Now you can run the script with the file manager plugin /var/share/dvb2001/, and then you must reboot the TD.

(Note: German version, English version may be available soon - Llew)

Feed reading software - you get a plugin on the TD from where you put in a URL to your choice RSS feed (many sites to choose from, news updates are popular) and it will display headlines etc. on your TD.

Has anyone had a proper play with this one yet, can you switch the plugin on/off without too much drama, is it a good idea that doesn't translate to well or is it worth a try?

Thanks

You just go to the RSS Client in the menu and type in a RSS URL.

Tedious though, as most RSS feed URL's are very lengthy, and have to be input via the 'select character from the remote numeral button' method.

Anyone tried the NovaCam plugin for the TD?

Just experimenting with it on the Fusion 2, no great advantage over existing EMU's (it's purely for Nag2), but works in parallel with other EMU's, or you can switch EMU's off in BMToy if you just want D +, seems a little faster channel changing.

The plugin is 'libnovacam.so' and you place it in the plugins directory in Fusion, or copy to /mnt/hd/data/stb/lib/dvb2001 directory in flash (uses Softcam).

You can download it from _www.curious-contraptions.com (TD section)

Latest version. Please make sure you delete the old version, as this one has a different name (new: libshoutcast.so , old: shoudcast.so).

Have fun

Plugins with the file extension .so can be placed in the plugins directory of a USB stick or on hdd to /mnt/hd/data/stb/lib/dvb2001 ( attributes 755 ).

+ on <info> there is MsgBox with filename & the image sizes (points)
* MsgBox is moved to the left-upper corner

The idea of this plugin is from Greg1530

This plugin displays 'the clock' (the current time) on your TV )
IMHO such an option should be in official images but... I did it just for fun.

files:
libtiktak.so - the plugin file, e.g. put on USB to /plugins/
or on your HDD in /mnt/hd/data/stb/lib/dvb2001/

keys:
<menu> - closes the clock (the plugin)
<red> - change the screen corner where the clock is displayed
<green> - change the font size
<yellow> - change the colour & background alfa (random)
all the rest...work as usual
You can switch channels, watch EPG etc & ...go stand-by :p)

If needed -
You can choose on your own the font colour & the background colour
just edit the config file /var/share/tiktak.cfg

--
0.2.10
* some technical fixes (e.g. unnecessary output to stdout :p)

0.2.05
+ background (on YELLOW) is random as well
* RED (as most left) changes the OSD position, GREEN changes size
* 'exit bug' solved (I think so)
* the config file is saved only when sth is changed with RED/GREEN/YELLOW
* font size is increased by 2 points

Some hints! (Is it the official image bug?)
When sth is on the screen (EPG or the info panel) one can call another quickplugin!

0.2.04a
+ in the config file (/var/share/tiktak.cfg)
for background colour added section: B {}

0.2.04
* fix for some problems when closing that plugin
+ red/yellow/green changes options

0.2.03
1st public release

Small plugin for saving settings etc.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

libsavesettings 1.0.8
-----------------------------------
-> use filebrowser for backup folder selection
-> fixed problem with spaces in folder names
-> create file /var/etc/.dont_use_filebrowser for manual editing of backup folder

-> the mountpoint /mnt/hd/data is searched as the base dir for backups/restore, .backup folder is created and used.

-> BACKUP: save available data related to lnb/satinputs/channels/tp
-> RESTORE SERV: restores favourites and services only
-> RESTORE ALL: restores all available data

NOTE: when restoring, after services list is successfully received (as the last item), a "refresh" command is sent, so your box will immediatly use received data.

TDCONTROL compatibility switch

if you are using tdcontrol plugin version 1.07.02, please create an empty file /var/etc/.tdc10702 this will instruct the plugin to send appropriate command for version 1.07.02. If using tdcontrol >= 1.07.03, this switch is not needed.

New plugin version

-> For backup folder configuration, FileBrowser window or manual text window can be used; press the MENU button to set use of the FileBrowser window on or off.

-> Added backup of /var/share folder content (subfoldrs skipped).
This comes from the fact that most plugins save its config data in /var/share folder, so a "libss restore" restores previously backupped config files back to /var/share, if any.
