SageMC 6.3.6

SageMC version 6.3.6 is now available.

Download the update here, and the full install package here.


Changelog for version 6.3.6:
  • Added screen layout configuration menu for the Main Menu which allows most objects on the main menu to be moved/resized and customized:
    • Menu: move/scale, adjust width, change text justification
    • Title Graphic: enable/disable, move/scale, adjust height, set opacity
    • Main Icon Panel: enable/disable, move/scale, set animation type, animation timeline, animation duration
    • Weatherbar: enable/disable, move/scale, select style(simple, detailed, and forecast). Will be shifted up when ticker is enabled only in case of overlap.
    • ShutdownIcon: enable/disable, move/scale, transition animation
    • PreviewPanel: enable/disable, move/scale, ticker is automatically adjusted to compensate
  • Popup menus and UI titles are converted to now use core animations. (new SageTV v6.3.2 animations were necessary for this)
  • Added display of (Category, Subcategory) to Subcategory Search Results menu title when searching by category.
  • Added new color coded EPG properties to theme.properties file (set to 0 to remove the default background color):
    • Alpha/GuideAiringBGDefaultPast=
    • Alpha/GuideAiringBGDefaultCurrent=
  • Fixed Selection Bar display on Browse by Channel screen.
  • Added property to set current time marker color in EPG
  • Added new icon based main menu system.
    • To activate, open the 'Customize Screen Layout' menu (via the options menu in the Main Menu) and go to the Customize button for 'Main Menu'. Select 'Icons' as the main menu style. If you are using the dynamic main menu, you can set the style for main and sub menus independently
    • You can adjust the number of rows and columns and they will update on the fly.
    • There are also settings here to choose the selection bars to use. By default it uses the existing 'icon_empty_*.png' files when 'Folder View' is selected, but you can also choose 'Main Menu' and it will look for 'main_menu_focus.png' and 'main_menu_nofocus.png' graphics files in your theme. (This allows the icon menu can work 'out of the box' with all existing themes, but still allows full customization to be done.)
    • The last setting you will see is the time delay for the new double select (double click) functionality in the icon menu. If you double click with the mouse or double select with the remote or keyboard then the popup shortcut menu will appear when available. Single click/select behaves as usual. This setting allows the user to tune the time allowed for the second click/select to their preferences
  • Added new Online Services. This is a rough first version, so there might be still some quirks with themes not matching etc. I know that people were anxiously waiting for this, that's why I tried to get it in even if it's not perfect yet
  • Integrated Niel's Multispeed FFWD/REW into STV
  • "Grouped" recording view now groups movies into one folder
  • Added batch file "rss_reader.cmd" (in SageMCE folder) to specify the external browser for RSS news
  • Fixed icons in Other Airings
  • Fixed number of rows in EPG by Channel
  • Fixed issue with hover_custom1.png
