very cool script!, and amazing that it like you say has the potential of being even greater, like weather, tv guide, imdb and games [Image: cool.gif]

you probably did not install python in xbmc.

make sure you have uncompressed the python.rar into the python directory.

zilvershadow, excellent script!

i've been looking at the script because i want modify it for different screen resolutions. my plan is to use self.getscreenheight inside processelement to determine the screenheight and set proper scaling factors. this value can then be used to correct the return values from the getwidth,getheight,getx,gety functions.  but to do this correctly, i need to understand the reasoning behing y always being scaled by 1.2.

my assumption is that your assuming a pal screen (720x576) and the kiss screen resolution is 640x480. 576/480 = 1.2. but if this is true, why arent you also scaling the x coordinate by 1.125. (720/640)

also, another thing i was thinking about was clecking the downloaded playlist to see if it had atleast one entry in it. if numentries was zero, put up a dialog box saying that the stream was offline or something similar.

the res of kiss is 720x480 so i only had to scale the vertical axes. i should use getwidth getheight getx, gety for the scaling. you can indeed get the screenwith with:

w = self.getwidth()
h = self.getheight()

then you can scale with a simple formula.

as for the playlists. i shouldnt change that, as when it doesnt start the stream is down. so.. and otherwhise you get the shoutcast dialog.

the script is not yet finished. a lot of work to do but i'm very busy now.... [Image: tounge.gif]

heh cool, u already did it for me. guess i wont waste my time updating the scale factors in version 0.8 then. i'll try out the new version in 720p and 1080i and let you know how it looks.

i know what your saying, if you dont get the shoutcast dialog box, the stream is down. the problem is that the page still says "connecting..." on the bottom. its confusing. at the very least, that should change to reflect that theres no stream available. (unless this has also changed with version 0.9)

i just want to say again that this is a great piece of software. keep up the good work.
