It would be nice if you post some screenshoots of your software and perhaps you can describe it a little bit more.

Try "screenshot.png" for a screenshot :wink:. As for the description, think Front Row (Apple's full screen media center that lets you control your music, photos and movies collection). A Front Row for Clicker, that is. Same functionality, only much faster and with more functionality, great browsing capabilities, etc. There is no detailed documentation yet, so the best way to get a feel of it is probably to try it out.

There's an open source project called centerstage that i believe can use Salling Clicker. It may be worth more your time to help improve that application rather then starting from scratch.

Thanks mapinsk, I wasn't aware of the Centerstage project. I'll look it up. If it has what it takes to be a worthy FrontRow replacement app for Clicker, well, then its most definitly not worth cloning it.

I like the idea, but maybe you should reconsider such obvious copying of the Front Row interface. After all, there are laws against plagiarising, and Apple Legal has been known to eat babies for kicks :D

I'm aware of this :-D. The soundset will be replaced in the final version. I'll try to find different graphics as well. Other than that I think its OK with a... hrm... quite similar... concept, no? BTW, its almost done now: a release candidate will be posted soon. Personally I think its much better than that Frontow or whatever its called thingy 8)

The hub is now offically available at MacUpdate! It was renamed as well. Download XHub 0.9b here: www.snarb.tk

I think this is the program I have been waiting for, unfortunately I haven't been able to get it to work. Is anyone else having problems?
When I launch it, it says "Xhub" in the menu bar and that is it. There is no menu underneath "Xhub" when pressed. When I press any buttons it on the keyboard I just get that default noise when the key can't do something and then nothing. I can't activate it with Salling Clicker...I am stuck.
Well, if anyone can help that would be great and thank you Snarb for spending so much time on your apps and scripts; I can't wait to try this one out.

Hi Uke,

as stated in the documentation, you enter the hub by pressing the escape key (while XHub is activated). Eg. select XHub in the dock, then press escape. Or simply launch XHub Remote in Clicker.

Hi Snarb,

I installed the latest beta. It doesn't work at all. It hardly ever reacts on keystrokes, I cannot control it, it just blocks my machine. How can I quit it? How can I uninstall? I want to get rid of it ASAP. The prefpane plugin doesn't offer to quit or uninstall, and the Help file is also basically empty. I know, it is still beta (is it already beta?), but all it did is freeze my machine.

Hi kseiferlin,

I'm sorry to hear this. It would be great if you could drop me an e-mail (snarb dot tk at gmail dot com) with more info (machine and system specs, etc) so I can figure out what went wrong here (a console dump would also be nice). To uninstall, simply delete the XHub folder in /Library/Application Support/ and the preference pane in /Library/PreferencePanes/. That's it. My apologies for your inconvenience.

On the other hand, I'm glad to hear that XHub seems to please others. This review just turned up at Versiontracker, thought I'd share it:

[b]Awesome work!!! - Version: 0.9.5b, 8/7/2006 10:14AM PST

Wow! I am impressed.... I've just turned my G5 into a better than front row experience! It even plays videofiles front row can't since it supports more things!
I am so impressed! I am just having a little trouble with slow playback on HD material that QT otherwise handles flawlessly... and it's just a beta still!!!

Try it out, you might be in for a surprise.... I was.... and still am :)
