New design for LinuxMCE UI1


LinuxMCE 0810 will have new design of its user interface called Titanium (see UI1 – SLD based GUI, on the picture above). In my opinion it looks more professional then old one. Moreover, users will be able to choose one of the several variation with different data grid colour.

All changes were done without special tool for designing LinuxMCE GUI HADesigner. Instead of that the graphic files were modified in the directory /usr/pluto/orbiter/skins/Basic. A little bit earlier I changed background for media file browser UI2 (OpenGL GUI verion) using the same approach. Because it was difficult to read movie titles with black letters on the dark green. By the way, Titanium will be also available for UI2 soon.

iPhone & iPod Touch application for VDR


iVDR turns your iPhone or iPod Touch into stylish remote control for your Video Disk Recorder (VDR). It allows to see EPG, set timers and manage records. Additionally you can watch stream from VDR directly on your Apple smartphone. It might be useful if you away from home but would like to see the game of your favourite football team, for example. Sure to do that you should be connected to the Internet via WiFi and your VDR box should be accessible outside.

The iVDR is written on Perl and provides web interface to VDR adopted to iPhone and iPod Touch. It has a simple config file where you can specify VDR connection parameters and setup permissions for the iVDR access. Currently iVDR is available on English and German. But it’s very easy to translate its interface to your language. If you have ability to do that just send translated lang.pack file to the iVDR author to include it in the next release.
