Build and customization service available

Hi,

Over the last few months I've enjoyed developing and submitting a decent number of patches to this awesome, fantastic, amazing project. All are extender compatible, open source, and free for noncommercial use. These include:

1. The announce command (speech support)

2. The msgboxrich command (rich message boxes)

3. Caller ID support

4. Watched folders (visual notifications of new images)

5. Blu-ray and DVD archiving

6. Windows 7 x64 compatibility

7. Macro & startup action support

What I haven't submitted (because it's not part of this project) is my high-performance iPhone/iPod web interface to the VMCController.

Unfortunately I don't have the time or the tools to merge these patches into the main branch or post an updated installer myself. However, I am willing to provide custom builds of the latest changes and further enhancements and customizations for a fee. If interested, please send me a personal message.

-James

 I can merge anyones patches to the Vista or Win7 projects and send you the installer. If anyone is interested let me know.

It would be great if you can merge all the recent patches and create a new installer. One of the coordinators could then give you check-in access...

OK  I have Dev access now. So I will be adding the patches to the win7 branch over the next couple of days and releasing a new installer.

Hello,

I have installed the version 46033 onto a Windows 7 32bits system and I can confirm it works great!

To be honest, what I did was downloading the source for version 46033, loaded into VS2008, removed the 64bits Installer and compiled the whole project for x86.

I am mainly interested in the socketServer to get the Media Center State to other systems running a socketListener. 

I noticed MC State changes are only recieved by a socketListener (or Telnet), if the MediaCenter runs full screen.

Also in a remote desktop session, and running MediaCenter on the remote, no state changes are recieved by the listeners.

I think this has someting to do with the way Media Center works.

Has somebody any idea how to overcome this (perhaps minor) problem.

Since I also have downloaded the source, I could try to find the cause, but I have no idea were to look.

Greetings.

I've installed 46033 (x86) and I can connect (via telnet) to 40500 and http to 40510 but I can't seem to connect to 40400.

snotneus - sounds like you can?

Any ideas / tips / tricks?

EDIT: Well nevermind... works great! The 'ol reboot seems to have fixed the problem.

Now if 7MC would just report the currently playing video correctly. All I get is "\\server\videos" when playing a ripped DVD from the folder \\server\videos\<dvdname>.
