Here is an earlier thread on this subject where users believed that whilst the SMS feature of the Philips SL300i/400i units was proprietary the idea that one could search (Sub directories of location in tree) on a string of data seemed like a VERY good one?ronenmiz wrote:Check the manual I guess although I looked at the remote and found no search button so I do not have any expectations here.
Thanks for the clarification, so does the Philips SL300i BrowseByLetter, ever become a keyword search (Sent to the server) in the sense that with SMS you build up a word and then search down the tree structure (From where you are) by the search word or by simply a BrowseByLetter? (or are all these combinations effectively a BrowseByLetter function on the SL300i/400i and sent onto the PMM and Twonky UPnP servers for feedback etc?)ronenmiz wrote:UPnP has a Browse service for hierarchical browsing and Search service for keyword search. Almost all the devices use Browse and some use Search as well. A very small few use only Search.
The Philips SMS works via a new service called BrowseByLetter which is only utilized by the streamium so even if we do add it no other device we know of uses it. Also as far as I know Philips (or whatever company sells the firmware to Philips) did no effort to suggest this extension to UPnP or to DLNA so the chances for this being used by some other device are very low.
Good question Yes, but it is taking longer than planned due to resource focus in adding much needed functionality. I always said plug-in support will come after 1.0 and it looks like it is indeed going to be the case.Will TVersity ever support a "plug in" infrastructure?
