where does this download show up? I keep checking my additional software downloads in MLServer but not sure how to refresh them/.. it still shows as 0.0.0.2 version installed and available.. or is it in another location?

MLserver Location

Postby rhodesep » Sun Sep 21, 2008 10:14 am

I have my MLserver installed on the "D" drive. When this Beta loads it loads it to the "C" Drive. I moved all the files to the "D" drive and it appears to work. Will just moving the files solve the problem or is there something else I need to do. :(

The installer defaults to C: but you should be able to change that during the install. If you change it once it should remember this setting for future installs. All HTML pages are relative to the HTML\iPhone folder. So just copying the files is fine.

Slight delay in getting the next release out. It got bumped by another task.

At what point do you think is could be a true iPhone app? That is, having it run natively and not as a webserver app? 1 week? 1 month? 6 months?

Its great so far and i look forward to it improving. would it ever be able to run iTunes or is the screen just too small for it to be effective?

My guess is you could reuse much of the MusicLobby iPhone scene to work with at least the MLiTunes stuff. MLiTunes exposes even more functions to the user interface (in this case the MLServer web server) than MusicLobby, so it shouldn't be all that difficult to report the MusicLobby web pages to interoperate with MLitunes.

well shoot.. that delay bums because im having all kinds of trouble trying to get anything other than just turn a light on or off to work on this interface.... i know the commands i need to execute but being able to display data and to be able to use a slider on it is not working for me at all in the least...

Will this work with the iPod Touch Second Generation 8GB? Sorry if this seems like a silly question, but I'm new to the whole Cinemar/Apple thing.

I have the following command which let's me click a coverart image to start MusicLobby playing an album. Works great except... I need to add an additional command to return the iphone scene to MuL.

If I wanted to add href="MusicMasterBath.html to return the scene to MuL, where would I put it in this command?

<td><img onclick="doCommand('Macro|SetVariable|CD_Album~{{CD_1}}!Media.MusicLibrary.SelectCD');" border=0 id="cd_1" src="http://192.168.0.103:8123/getImage?C%3A%5CCoverArt%5C{{cd_1}}" style="width: 70px; height: 70px"></td>

Appreciate any help.

Thanks,
Rick

Try using the doCommandJump function istead of doCommand.

Code: Select all

<img onclick="doCommandJump('Macro|SetVariable|CD_Album~{{CD_1}}!Media.MusicLibrary.SelectCD','MusicMasterBath.html');" border=0 id="cd_1" src="http://192.168.0.103:8123/getImage?C%3A%5CCoverArt%5C{{cd_1}}" style="width: 70px; height: 70px">


This function will first execute the command and then switch to the page specified by the second parameter.

OK - I have read through this thread to try to figure out how to update my iphone html files and I still can not figure out how it is done. Is it automaticly updated with the server updates or is it a seporate update?

Look in MLInstaller. Section #6 / MainLobby for the iPhone.
