    SSPlus Screensaver 1.2 Fanart Support

    Jaggy and I have added support for Fanart to SSPlus following Martin's great work with Music Box 4.

    Simply download from the wiki, uncompress and run the installer, then set SSPLus as your default screensaver.

    First time users should look at the SSPlus wiki page to find out how to make SSPlus your default screen saver.

    Edit SSPConfig.xml in your Plugins\SSPlus dir (using notepad or similar - not wordpad) and add the following to the general <settings> section...
    Code:
    <displayFanart>True|True</displayFanart>
    SSPlus will look for Fanart called ArtistName*.jpg in Media\Artists in the NextPVR DataDirectory - if you are using the latest version of Music Box 4 this will already exist, otherwise you will need to create this directory and populate it with your own Fanart.

    If Music Box 4 is currently playing your music, SSPlus will display newly downloaded Fanart as it happens...

    SSPLus 1.2 also includes the full release version of the Photo Slideshow feature.

    We will be updating the wiki page with a full list of features and options as soon as we can, but in the meantime post any comments, suggestions or problem reports (please attach your NPVR logs) in this thread...

    Hi ACTCMS, I love the screen saver with and without MB4 running. When you have time to update the wiki could you remove the following log messages that are spamming the logs every 10 seconds

    2012-08-06 17:07:17.583 [DEBUG][1] SSPlus NeedsRendering: begin transition
    2012-08-06 17:07:19.614 [DEBUG][1] SSPlus NeedsRendering: time to move

    Thanks,

    Martin

    It's great that you like the plugin Martin - as it happens, I'm currently reviewing my logging so I'll be sure to look at that...

    The latest version (v1.2.0) is now available to download from the wiki. Note that v1.2.0 also contains the updates announced here.

    The wiki page has also been extensively updated to document the new features.

    Hi Alex, did you ever make a way to reduce your logging in general?

    Alex is currently off on his yearly camping trip...... & as far as I know he hasn't got very far with this, I would also appreciate a way to turn it down for normal use

    Just got back home yesterday evening... thanks Martin - the trip was great...

    As Jaggy said, I've not done much development for a good few months - after I catch up with the day job, I'll get back to it.

    And yes... it is a great forum...
