Jay! That's Fast Derek.
I will try this as soon as my new server is up and running (having some trouble getting PHP to work in IIS7... Zucht. ;-)
Thanks, and I will post my results on the new PC interface.

The PC interface is really small at the moment so don't get too excited, btw, it is only visible if you switch to EXPERIMENTAL mode... (see the download page)
The "final" PC interface will be something like this: http://weblog.vanderhoorn.info/files/jsImageGrid.wmv to let you search through your movies (only much better ).
0.4 is a... clean up version, I'm not the person who will keep you all waiting for months, while loads of stuff is already finished... (like "aeon" (skin) does (not to blame them... it's a choice...)). This way I've feedback at an early stage, so I can easily adjust things.
Strange to see my real name over here

Haven't had the time to check it. can't get darn PHP to work on 2008 server. But that must be due to my complete lack of knowledge of IIS. ;-) As soon as I have tested, I will let you know.
Thanks again, And I will keep your remarks in mind when I test it.
Btw: It uses the default skin your XBMC installation is running at the moment isn't it? I use Aeon (and yes, the wait is killing me) and Aeon is not very mouse- and keyboard friendly (and becuase of that: in the future It wouldn't be too touch-friendly either). Is there any way to work around that? Like, I don't know, have your HTTP server use another skin than the one used by XBMC itself? I know this question is a probably not feasable, but hey, can't hurt asking. ;-)

Yes, it will get another skin to navigate through your movies etc. You will see (it's still all in my mind, maybe I can finish something in the upcoming holiday).

just out of curiosity. What command are you using for the up/down transport controls? Is it ../xbmcCmds/xbmcHttp?command=SendKey¶meter=270 ?
When using your web interface the up/down commands work as expected on both my linux and windows machines. However, when using the interface for the nokia 770 up/down actually execute page up/down on Windows. On linux it works as expected. I am trying to track down the issue. Any input would be helpful. Cheers.

That's about it... I saw that project had some issues, since it only uses SendKey, but you also have the "Action" parameter which is working a lot better for some things.
- Rand Al Thor - 2009-02-11 18:08
That is what I figured. I did some testing last night and found that action¶meter= worked much better than sendkey. Thanks for the info. cheers.

Has this been tested on a PSP yet? If not, I'll try when I get home...

Hi - Got this working on PC last night. But trying to use on Blackberry 8320 using the wi-fi browser - it loads the default ppc theme up but the rendering is all wrong. I guess this is because the BB default browser cannot support mozilla fully.
Will I have to hack the stylesheet or do I need to get into the PHP code to fix this?
I am a noob on PHP btw.
