Ability to mark some podcasts as favorites and to get information if a new episode of these podcasts was released (e.g. a widget on main page or a list of recently published favorit podcasts)

this not in the scope of diamond nor will it be. Check out toms podcast recorder addin. Not sure what all it does, but diamond doesn't nor will it handle podcast changes.

  3. A web browser.
  4. An improved music interface.
  5. Dynamic pictures for menus allowing you to have your menu photo be any one of X pictures. Or seasonal-specific menu photos that change each month - if your daughter's birthday is in April then the April menu photo is her blowing out candles on a cake, Christmas themed photos for December, etc.
  6. A sports score page like on MCE.
Tv wall in the works already

Native Netflix/hulu not that it is hard it is impossible without play on on our end.

Music as of now we aren't touching music section might change at some point but not high on priority list

You realize you can change this images yourself pretty simple/easy why do we need to make them dynamic not seeing the point here

Web browser is out of the scroe of this project

* Better integration / more consistent ui with TV
* Dynamic menus with ability to assign Diamond custom views to homepage.
Confused all clients already keep their own properties or profiles os it is already per room?

Agree on the sports have something similar to wmc in mind here

Don't know what you mean by better integration?? It is hard if not sometimes impossible to use the same Layout for tv as movies because they function so differently. So really takes different view to use them both at least in my opinion.

Agreed

Doable and already do that code in smm so not hard. Good suggestion.

+1 for dynamic pictures
Takes a complete rewrite of smm to go beyond the current themeing in smm. But is on my thought list

Again you can change the pictures anytime you want I am still not seeing the value in this

Doable for now play works in fact play works right from the show screen to play the next episode as well

I think my wife is slowly unlearning that but she was pretty pissed when I switched from SageMC to the default Sage7 STV. Diamond has gotten her back to being mostly happy, other than the music interface (which I'm +2 on, but somebody outside of Diamond is working on it I guess).

Parental controls would be the next item. Being able to filter and password protect different views would be awesome. I think the filtering in the movies views is probably at the right level, but I'd need to be able to password protect the non-kids one. On the TV side, having views which could be filtered by favorites (your "favorite favorites"), and then passworded in a similar way would be great.
You can change enter = play on diamond views just in case you didn't now. And info does equal info

Parent control is coming the the form smm does it. Password protects and hides movies based on current access level.

I'm a huge fan of Diamond. Functionally it does everything I want. My main request would be the continued development of the eye candy. A few things I would like to see:

Here is a nice view that show cases the fanart.
http://img40.imageshack.us/img40/7403/screenshot082.png

Another view that is less fancy: http://www.edho.com/wpcontent/upload...ieshowcase.jpg

I also have idea for a theme whose back ground picture changes dynamically as a function of the time of day. I have a google theme that does this which I think is neat.

Anyway I look forward to what's next.....

You more than likely won't see views like that on Diamond. Had some like that originally with SMM. While they are nice the extenders can't do 3d transformations. We like to keep diamond extender friendly

I really love the ability in TVExplorer to easily toggle between the recordings and scheduled content. Something similar would be great.

In general I really like have the quick links icon bar to the left of the screen in TVExployer as well.

... and of course Music and Dynamic Menus same as everyone else.

Man you opened up Pandora's box w/ this post.

I'd like to see some diamond flare w/ some of the other non TV and Movie menus.

Music has been mentioned and put aside for now since someone else is working on it.

Online Services menu is another. Any way you guys could pretty that up? I've never been a fan of how things are presented there. The only other plugin that modifies that menu is Fuzzy's malore for online services. With many using Playon, some eye candy in these menu's would be awesome.

Oh and dynamic menus would be nice.

A simplified delete options. All the delete options drive us nuts and are unnecessary as we never use intelligent recording.

I don't think this is just for intelligent recording. If you select Watched - Delete then it won't rerecord thata episode but if you select Delete -Wrong recording then it will. I occasionally have failed recordings for one reason or aother and select the second option, paricularly for TV series where I want to archive all episodes. But you may not care about that either.

Or even just a way to configure one client, save that client profile so that I can then have all my clients setup the same way without having to reconfigure each new client. I found this painful to do for the 5 clients I have.

Thanks

+1 if this is what I think it is.

SageMC used to allow you to go from a highlighted show to watching in a single click (the enter button on the remote). I miss this a lot. I hate having the options screen popup when I want to play. I know that the play button on the remote will skip past this screen, but that is asking for the UI to be inconsistent and for us to unlearn 5 years of learning.

I would love to have the option of "ok plays TV without info screen first" and then the info key would be used to bring up the info screen.

And if you could have screenshot thumbnails that represent how these changes would look, that would be a bonus. Of course, you would still keep the "Diamond Options" in the right click menus for the individual screens as well. Just a thought.

One other request:

Movie sort by running time. My wife likes to pick movies by how long they are based on how tires she is.

Great work BTW!
