Like probably everyone else on here with a nokia 770 it has become - thanks to the nokia 770 skin - the defacto way of controlling my SB2 setup. In fact the only thing i can't do with it (quickly) is get at the ALBUM REVIEW plugin and read a review whilst listening - is there any plan to support this plugin and Biography on the skin in the future? If not then thanks for the skin anyway...its great.

Glad to hear the 770 skin is working well for you.

I wasn't even aware of the Album Review and Biography review plugins existence...can I ask you if you've seen them working with other skins in 6.5? I intend to support anything that's possible in other skins, so if it's there, I will add it to my to-do list.

FYI, I haven't done any development for several weeks because my free time has been swamped with another hobby, running my online NCAA basketball pool. As soon as the final four ends, I will be getting back on the Nokia770 skin. First order of business is AJAX support on the playlist page, which (at least for me) is working marvelously on the now playing page.

cheers,

There's nothing special about them. You only have to define a plugins
section in the skin (see eg. Default): any plugin adding web pages without
defining a special section (Radio, Help etc.) will be added to the plugins
section.

These two plugins aren't optimized for 6.5 yet, but should work.

They work with default and fishbone to name two i have tried (on 6.5) - try em I think you'll agree it would be cool to be able to look at the review details whilst using the 770 screen to control things. Thanks in any event.

Do you think that would include support for Music Magic, which has some
different UI implications than other plugs?

I was also wondering about Music Magic support - I love the 770 and the skin, but use Music Magic a lot. Ben, is Music Magic support feasible in the near future?

all I can tell you is that's on my list. I'm focused on ajax support right now, so I can't tell you when I'll get to it. I don't use Music Magic, so will likely be calling for help testing when I get to it.

it is fairly simple to add the mixer support. Just come up with a
couple graphics for mlmix.gif and mmmix.gif, and the rest is cut and
paste of 3 or 4 lines of code. bring it up on the dev list when you
get to it. This reminds me that I need to make a more generic
template for those links anyway.
