random dvd selection

Postby dbarker » Sat May 20, 2006 12:41 pm

did a quick search and didn't find anything relevent.

could a function be added to play dvds randomly?

maybe a button in dvdlobby that sends a command to randomly
select a dvd and possibly a "shuffle" button so that dvdlobby would
continuously play randomly selected dvds until it is reset or turned off?

Uh... HomeSeer? or some external batch file or script? Sounds like an interesting request... and one that wouldn't be too useful for those of us who are using DVD changers, for example.

Are you using Zoom Player or TheaterTek? Or changers?

only using changers.
don't want to add any more clutter.
2 777's
and storing some on hdd
some times we spend too much time trying to decide on a movie to watch
and end up choosing one blind. thought it would be a
nice feature for those times when you just want to push a button and
watch whatever comes up.

Hmmm... if that's what you're looking for, then the DVD Query plugin may help you gather data from the database into vars which you could apply some logic to externally (in a command line environment, most likely). Or wait and see if someone decides to do it for you. :)
