OK, I did a search but I can't find what I am looking for. I seem to remember there being a way to cause popup messages on the player by writing text to a proc file. Anybody know how to make this work?

Thanks,
-Mike

just try :

echo "popup 5 thanks mlord" > /proc/empeg_notify

It will display the text "thanks mlord" for 5 seconds

Very good!

And something similar should also be achievable remotely, by FTPing the same text into /proc/empeg_notify

I dunno, but as soon as Mark found out about this, I started seeing these popups appearing on my player:

All right, Mike. Come clean. What are you working on?


I am still in the "thinking about it stage", but I am looking at adding some functionality to the EmpMenuX program I recently released. I am thinking of using the empeg display for news/status messages. I poll the empeg every 10 seconds for song info so at the same time I could easily throw up weather info, stock quotes, number of unread posts on the bbs, etc. on the empeg's display. Basically anything I can scrape off a website somewhere.

I was also toying with the idea of showing cover art to match the current song scraped from Amazon on the computer running EmpMenuX.

No promises on either yet though.
