      • Multiple Entry Points to MB

        Add functionality to MB to have multiple entry points. This would allow you to have different items in the Media center start menu strip like download tv, Movies, ect...

        • add the ability to 'right click' (menu button)

          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.

          • Password Protected Folders

            Be very useful if there was some kind of implementation where by you could protect a folder from viewing by a passcode/password.

            • refresh thumbnails/poster/metadata for selected (via button)

              Would be nice to be able to refresh the thumnails/poster/metadata/etc for the selected item, to avoid having to clear the entire cache.

                      • Add option for "Big" and "Small" Skip like XBMC

                        XBMC has 4 user definable skip modes available during video playback.
                        Small Skip Forward (Right Arrow) set to 30sec
                        Small Skip Back (Left Arrow) set to -10sec
                        Big Skip Forward (Up Arrow) set to 1min
                        Big Skip Back (Down Arrow) set to -1miin
                        As far as I can tell these buttons do nothing during video playback. I have found this to be a much more efficient and reliable way to navigate a video file than fast forward and rewind which I understand is difficult to implement in VMC.

                        • add option to hide/unhide watched movies

                          If you have many movies it's not easy to browse through mix of watched and unwatched files. Especially if you look for a never seen movie...

                            • 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!

                                • Genre etc in subfolders

                                  I use subfolders to organise my multiple disc sets for Movies. I edit the xml in each subfolder ("local Title") so that the disc name is displayed correctly. I put a folder.jpg in the parent folder and all is fine expect the problem of searching under Genre or actors etc where the subfolders are ignored as described in other posts. Could the solution of the problem not be for mediabrowser to recognise an xml file greated in the parent directory?

                                    Such as online streaming trailers, Series previews ... .
                                    Linking to content would be responsibility of thirdparty scraper software, but simply the ability to display links to such content would be great!

                                    • Create Thumbnails for non-tv shows

                                      Currently the thumbnails are grabbed from the internet as this method ensures you don't get 'bad' thumbnails that media center generates.

                                      However if you are storing for example home videos, downloaded youtube episodes, music videos etc then you are left with nothing.

                                      I don't know what the solution is but I'd like to see some kind of thumb artwork displayed.

                                      • Suppress 'x' not found messages

                                        I would like an option to suppress error messages when a link to a directory is not found.

                                        I often plug in a USB drive but when i don't I get this annoying 'd:\usb data\movies\ not found' message.

                                        I would like the option to suppress this so i don't have to see it each time. In the same way now when you specify to sort data in a view that does not have complete metadata you get the option to 'show this message' again.

                                        • Add ability to create Multi-Video Playlist, like XBMC can.

                                          The ability to create a multi-video playlist inside browser. Que up several video's to play in sequence, for multi-hour viewing. Would be excellent... Like XBMC does. THANK YOU.
