  1. auto refresh rate change

    ok, here is my request, im constantly niggled by the fact that hd videos stutter on playback due to the fact that hd/ntsc dvd source material runs at 24fps/60 fps and my tv is set at 50hz thus im getting a noticable stutter during playback of hd and ntsc dvd material. i realise i could set my refresh rate to 60hz or 48hz (assuming it supports 408z) but not all my videos are ntsc/hd and thus i would need to constantly change my refresh rate back and forth (a royal pain in the ass for anybody who's tried this)

    so…

    • Save Downloaded Artwork

      Currently MB does a great job of downloading banners and backdrops etc etc. The problem is once the cache is cleared these are all lost and/or you copy your files to another computer you have to redownload all of these. Granted the process is done for you but it seems like a big waste of bandwidth and time waiting for folders to update with the downloaded artwork.

      I can understand the logic of not saving this info in case it is incorrect, but 95% of the time it is correct so at least make it an option to save downloaded…

        • Speed up zooming effects when browsing in Poster/other views

          When browsing from movie to movie, it takes just under a second for the DVD cover to zoom in, to fill the frame. I'm not sure if this causes the lagging, however, I think the animation speed should be sped up so that it is more natural going from cover to cover- like in the DVD Library view of VMC.

          • Hide folders not containing video files

            If you're like me and delete TV show episodes after watching them, the TV Series folder shows a lot of series which do not contain any episodes. Instead of adding/deleting the folder each time it would be nice if MB ignored folder which do not containt video files.

            • Watched/Unwatched Feature

              From the forum:

              "Since I don't have the original Media Center Remote, I'm having trouble using the watched/unwatched feature with the clear button.
              I programmed the clear button on a button on my logitech harmony 525 but it's not working. Any chance, that you could change the button that needs to be pressed?"

              "It's not a MS remote. I bought one from another brand...

              Anyway... Please guys, provide another way to clear the already watched mark... "

                • Save folder view metadata to a file in each folder.

                  Save each folders view data to a folder.xml in that folder. This will make it easier to copy the view settings to other folders. For example, use thumb view for TV shows. You could copy the file instead of having to set the option in every folder.

                  • Add a "partially viewed" flag to supplement existing flags

                    The "partially viewed" flag would indicate that the current video is in progress and allow you to easily tell what you haven't finished watching yet and can resume.

                    • Configurable transparency

                      I love the new background image for movies and TV series, however on my TV screen it often makes the text unreadable. Having a % transparency option would resolve this problem while still making it look sensational!

                                Instead of navigating all the way up to the header, why not add a 'right click' (menu button) option, like in Recorded TV, which will contain the 'sorting' options and also some additional useful stuff like 'Delete/Mark watched" etc.

                                    • Add options to show/hide the metadata displayed with videos

                                      It would be nice if we can configure which metadata is shown when viewing entries for videos. With a more modular view, it would enable users to show/hide production year, IMDB rating, parental rating, directors, writers, movie description, cast, and even the box art.

                                      • For avi's, press # keys move % (4 = 40% of movie, 7 = 70%)

                                        My dsm-520 does this and it's the only reason it is in my entertainment setup next to VMC/Media Browser. You still can't ff/rw on the 520 but at least you can get closer to where you left off previously. In VMC/Media Browser, if I'm watching an AVI and want to come back to it later, I'm forced to watch it again.

                                        • Tag/select a couple of movies and show only them

                                          A feature to temporarily tag a couple of movies and show only the selected ones. Also ability to deselect them with the same button

                                          Would be nice if you are 3-4 people deciding to watch a movie you can browse through the poster view select the interesting ones and show 'only' them. Would narrow it down and be easier to select a movie atleast if you have lots of them.
