[UMC] Some questions ...

[UMC] Some questions ...
I just ran into the new UMC 2.0 video and think it looks pretty good. I'm looking forward to seeing it come out.

I have only a A-100 so I don't have any experience using a 200 series and haven't really messed with jukeboxes because I didn't have much time to spend on setting up.

I know UMC 2.0 isn't finished, but I wanted to ask a couple of questions..

Is UMC going to be an option on the home screen or is they're going to be an option to boot straight to the UMC app?


thanks

RE: [UMC] Some questions ...
I don't believe that UMC 2.0 will work on the A-100, it's intended primarily for the C-200. If it works like UMC 1.84, then if will probably run from an index.htm file. If you want to play around with it, suggest you download and try out 1.84, as 2.0 has been promised for a while now and no ETA has been given as of yet...

RE: [UMC] Some questions ...
I think you're wrong.

UMC 2.0 will be available for C-Series (C-200) and A-Series (A-100, A-110).

UMC 2.0 is PC based software which creates a database and GUI for the pch.
the database will be the same for a-series and c-series.
only the skin will be different. html-based for the a-series and flash-based for the c-series.
i think you'll be able to chose the skin within umc 2.0 pc-gui

The RobG Skin (the one shown in the video / flash based) will only be available for the C-200.

RE: [UMC] Some questions ...
I'm pretty sure UMC V2.0 will run on C-200, A-110 and the A-100. It's just the A-110 and A-100 won't have quite a flash front end.

Pretty much what everyone else has said, if you use a HTML skin you will be ok on A1xx, for flash skin you will required x200 Smile

Ok so what about the A-200 then? I thought it would work with that one too....

So back to my initial questions..
Is UMC going to be an option on the home screen or is they're going to be an option to boot straight to the UMC app?

What do you mean with "option on the home screen"?

UMC will be started with an index-file.

You can install it as a webservice (link to the index file)
or you can use kDoske (you may search the forum for more details)

kDoske is a tool which generates a (customizeable) index file in the root of the pch so that the index will be started if you select the hdd-icon.
works good on A-110 and C-200. Smile

What I was implying is if it will show up as source. Since you guys answered my question about a index-file thanks.
