    Filters on Wiki?

    Dear all,

    have I missed a section on Wiki that discusses filters specifically? If not should there be one? Hopefully Hoborg and me are working on a SAF pack walkthrough thing. Now where should that be placed?

    Manual?

    Miscellaneous?

    It is not a plugin or utility as filter installation is so much of GBPVR.

    After this will go away for a bit and do some real work on the Wiki instead of just chatting about it!

    Cheers

    Thanks -OZ-

    The more I think about this I am undecided.

    Reasons:

    • A filter section on the Wiki I think would be good as they are so much part of getting GBPVR up and running.

    • Hoborg's SAF is currently well supported, but, of course, could be considered separate from a potential filter section as it is a user created 'add-on' though not a utility or plugin!


    Realistally am just pondering on pmwiki url folder/file creation, and where it goes, as we know if it goes in the wrong place can cause headaches later....

    Hmmmm

    Edit:

    Having seen pBS' recent post in an entirely unrelated thread about HIP, would 'tips & trix' section be a better place?

    There is a HIP section already on the wiki with remote controls.

    I actually didn't like SAF because the "suggested" config didn't work with my graphics card/OS (HTPC 3 in the sig); but I did use some of what I learned from SAF to configure my own filters. Last thing to perfect is the DVD since the one I know works got removed from the pack that had it.

    Would you be including user experience/suggestions in the filter page?

    Yes. Under Tips & Trix? Not sure what you mean by this?

    Agree, hence why I got 'cold feet' SAF has worked for many but not all. But still think filters should have a section on Wiki?

    Would you be including user experience/suggestions in the filter page?
    No because that is a minefield only capable to be dealt with on the Forums.

    Thanks -Oz- your input has been great.

    I think I may attempt a filter page in the future but for now will scuttle away and do something else.

    Cheers
