Download:VolumeOSD.zip (2628 downloads)

Requirements

None.

Configuration

There's no user interface for settings as the plugin can usually configure itself automatically.

A couple of advanced settings can be changed by editing NextPVR's config.xml file with Notepad or similar.

The OSD timeout can be set by editing the value of Settings/PluginSettings/Volume/OsdTimeOut. The default is 2000ms (2 seconds).

If you are running Windows XP, you may need to set Settings/PluginSettings/Volume/UseWaveOutVolumeLine to 'true', depending on your sound card setup.

Support

This plugin is discussed in the Add Ons forum.

Un-installation
