#571 closed patch (fixed)

Add ability to change skip times through OSD tree menu

Reported by: mythtv@… Owned by: gigem
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.20
Component: mythtv Version: head
Severity: low Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


The 30 second skip is right for watching normal television, but, when watching American football, I skip between plays and 30 seconds is a few seconds too long. I have been going in and out of the setup menu to change it when I watch football, but that is painful. This enhancement patch adds a new item to the OSD tree menu (change skip lengths) that allows you to change the skip ahead, skip back, and jump times. This obviates the need for me to go into setup to change these values.

It allows you to type the new amount as well as use the arrow keys. It is modelled after the audio sync control.

The changes made are NOT stored in the database. I do not think it would be difficult to change, but this behavior is what would be most useful to me (most of my shows are not American football).

Adds 2nd fast forward button

comment:1 Changed 15 years ago by adam@…

A while back I did something similar (for the same reason - sports), but I wanted to preserve the default interval because it's still useful for skipping undetected commercials. I added a mapping for a second fast-forward button with an independent skip interval configured through the setup method. I never submitted it because I don't think it would be accepted; two buttons to do the same thing is kind of awkward. But I'll attach it here in case anyone is interested.

This is somewhat related to a feature I'm currently working on. I just can't find any time to finish it.

On a related note, I've been mulling over the following enhancement: the ability to select which FF/REW speeds get cycled through when using stickykeys. Right now, the default is: 3x:5x:10x:20x:30x. Personally, I find that I only tend to use one of either 3x/5x/10x, and then I want to jump right to 20x or 30x. I was thinking of making it a configurable setup option, but after seeing this discussion I think an OSD menu option would be more appropriate. I'd want the current setting to be saved to the database.

If anybody's interested, I could look into coding the internal support for such a feature, and kick it over for someone to do the OSD menu.
