Daniel - I've gone through this in detail but can't see where the code is logically any different to the pre-OSD merge version - though I could easily be wrong. Can you confirm what you think you should be seeing with this menu item? It's not something I've ever really used and I can't actually see what it offers over and above the input switching menu.

Ok, Say you have 3 DVB cards with a multirec of 3 connected to OTA, 1 Firewire recorder connected to Cable + 1 HD-PVR and 1 PVR-500 connected to Cable and 1 PVR-500's and 1 HD-PVR connected to Satelite STBs then the Source list is

  • OTA
  • Cable
  • Satelite

The Input list is

  • DVB 1 MPEGTS
  • DVB 2 MPEGTS
  • DVB 3 MPEGTS
  • DVB 4 MPEGTS
  • DVB 5 MPEGTS
  • DVB 6 MPEGTS
  • DVB 7 MPEGTS
  • DVB 8 MPEGTS
  • DVB 9 MPEGTS
  • Firewire 10 MPEGTS
  • HDPVR 11 MPEGTS
  • HDPVR 12 MPEGTS
  • PVR-500 13 Component
  • PVR-500 14 Component
  • PVR-500 15 Component
  • PVR-500 16 Component

As you can see from this example the Source list is something that is useful to end users and the Input list is something that's only useful to a developer that has an open terminal in mysql. Currently I only see the developer tool in the menu's and not the list intended for end users. If we're simplifying the menu's we should probably remove the developer tool from the menu and put it on it's own keybinding which is by default unbound.

I'd concur with Daniel on this one. The input list isn't really for the average user, it's complex and technical. In light of our current drive to UI simplification and the removal of confusing, needless settings it makes no sense to keep the input switching menu over the more user friendly source switching menu.

Resolution: fixed
Status: infoneededclosed

(In [26326]) Fix the OSD Switch Source menu.

This was just a simple logic error but I've also addressed an issue that the fix highlighted where alternative sources on the same card were not available (e.g. 2 inputs with 2 different sources on a PVR-150).

Closes #8805
