Not sure if this has been requested yet but similar to jfxwave's request regarding "defaulting back to menu" http://www.xlobby.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=685
Can there be a general event timer
that can trigger other commands, ie. the back to menu can be done by specifying in the event timer the wait time before it issues the goto menu screen or something like that. What I am currently doing is putting an rss overlay screen on my main menu to show realtime info. This is so that if my htpc is idle in the main menu, I can still see live info like top stories and such...and maybe system info (temp,fan,etc..) through the help of MBM and samurize maybe but that's another topic. Anyways, since the database can be refreshed via the category refresh command, I can set the event timer
to refresh the database every minute or so and hence, will refresh the rss overlay screen giving me a real time effect. Is this possible?
ps. The event timer can also be used for other things from setting it to show specific screens for kiosk mode type thing (handy when you are showing off xlobby for commercialization) to an alarm clock by setting your favorite song to play at a specific time.
