Quote:Hi - love your xbmc commander, but one question: when I am not connected to xbmc: why do i have empty lists in tv episodes or empty descriptions when i click on a film detail - can you change this so every thing is in offline mode accessible?
Thats because only data that has been accessed at least once is cached, and then available in offline mode.
But i've added a way to pre-cache everything: Look at the options menu under "cache".
Once you hit the "download all data" button you'll understand why i don't do this by default...

Hi there grywnn exellent app and i mean that not many apps impress me but this app is tremendous.
a couple of questions.
Q1 I know you said you have to scrap banners for the tv shows so that you cna view them as banners in the xbmc commander. But where do you do this is it in the videos or movies as when i go to videos there still all in posters and i have checked the scraper option and its not selected as posters ? or is it just getting the folders.jpg from my folder as default which are posters.
Do i need to go into videos select a tv show and change the picture to a banner.jpg so that xbmc commander loads it up as banners ? and what happens if there mixed as banners and poster sizes.
i have my tv shows as posters at teh min as all my tv shows lib all have there tv shows pictures set to folder.jpg whihc is the same size as posters.
i quick help on how to get the banners to work would be great.
Q2 can you add some sort of how many movies and tv show numbers to the top left of the remote.
Q3 are the shortucts on the same screenas thegestures on the ipad ? as i know your limited to screen size on the iphone.
Q4 how much space does the cache take up on the iphones memory ? i was just woundering as i wanted to know if it reduce the iphone space by alot
Q5 also it would be great if you could add options to disable some shortcuts like libaray update as my wife has already touched this twice and buggerd some shows up. might be better to add that in the options menu maybe ?
cheers for the great app can not wait to try it out on my ipad when i get it as this is why i wanted this app great on the iphone but i bet it looks great on the ipad.

This application is GREAT!
...but I have one tiny suggestion/question:
Is it possible to list the TV shows in banner-mode but have two columns? (like XBMC typically displays them)
It would look MUCH better.

Q1 Please do me a favor and do a little search in this thread or the xbmc documentation.
~50% of the support i'm doing is about banners / posters, and i must admit i'm getting a little tired of explaining it over and over again...
Q2 I'll have a look where i can fit this in.
Q4 Thumbnails take about 20-30k, so 400 thumbs take aprox. 10MB. Double this for retina. Fanart is stored in the iPhones temp dir and purged on a regular basis by the system.
Q5 menu is editable on the ipad, i just didn't have time to port this feature to the iphone.
I hate the 2-column views
It's actually not that easy to change from 1 to 2 columns, because i'm handling banners completely different from posters.
But maybe i'll give it a try in a future layout.

Thanks for the response even though I LIKE 2-columns!
Anyways - keep up the great work. XBMC Commander is an amazing application.

Cheers will look it up for the banners and posters but by the sounds of it the iPad version seems to have all that I want apart from how many moves and tv show.
Bloody great app

Ive said earlier that this app looks fantastic, but at present all i have is a first gen iPod touch. Is there any way to have this app run on ios 3.1.3 or is it just not possible?
- meridius - 2011-04-01 18:40
are you working on the shortcuts on the iphone as these are not working
- AgeOfPanic - 2011-04-01 19:07
I didn't know where to set if you want banners or posters either, but it's an option when you add or edit a source. It says something like "prefer posters", I think. Just look around there, you'll see it.
I closed down XBMC commander and tried if that would fix the buttons in the remote tab, but no. Then I reinstalled the app, but still no luck. Glad to see though, Grywnn, that you're not letting our feedback get to you. I think everybody here is very happy with the app and wants to help improve it.
