thats what the "shortcuts" in the home menu for :)
The r4585 is considerably faster than r5440 but there is no "shortcuts" option.
Thanks aasoror; this is indeed a great option. I created a shortcut for my NAS directory (TV Shows), Movies (USB) and Kids Movies (USB).
This helps a bit since I am not able to scan my USB drive; it start then just stop; so no movies or music in the movies/music tab selection.
After using this firmware for a few days here's some of my findings which in a lot of cases reflects what is found on the ACRyan forum.
- Navigation thru the various menu is somewhat slow but still useable IMHO.
- Networks (wireless) often drop when not being used; seem to be ok while streaming video from my NAS. I can not comment on Ethernet connection since it is not connected.
- So far I did not have any problems playing any of my TVshows/movies.
- Scanning of my USB drive does not work. Could be related to the fact that my USB is Ext3 formatted ???? I just don't know.
- Youtube works fine on this firmware.
- Nice selection of internet feeds already available. More can be added but menu.rss needs to be decripted first and overmounted somewhere that is writable (/usr/local/etc/) to make is writable. The menu.rss format is slightly different than previous version but still not very complicated.
- Firmware does not seem to recognize the bmp compress format that was often used on previous fimware; it does however recognized uncompress bmp but those file can get big pretty quick.
- a /opt (symbolic link to /usr/local/etc/opt) is available on this firmware. I am not sure if aasoror added this to the firmware or if it is available on the official. Either way this means that optware installation on this firmware is possible.
- Looks good but looks is not everything.
Overall it is an ok firmware but still some issues that needs to be ironed out by ACRyan/Realtek before we can call it a winner.
