    VixBMC capital letters in radio streaming

    Dear birdman

    Thanks for your effort to fix the virtual keyboard on this skin. Do you know whom I should write for another request? I noticed that the streaming information in the radio mode is written in a narrow, all uppercase font, making it difficult for reading. I would suggest doing it the same way as in the Simple_Ten_Eighty skin. I attach the screenshots for comparison

    I don't recall ever seeing any text when streaming. Not that I've done it much, but I did set-up a test stream (form another box) once.
    I might be able to work out what creates this, though.

    Hi Birdman

    I listen very often to Swiss Jazz on Hotbird 13.0 E, 11527 MHZ H 29700 2/3 8PSK. As an alternative you find the texts also on the German radio streams e.g. BR-Klassik Astra 19.2 E 12266 MHZ H 27500 3/4 QPSK.
    Best regards

    Dear Abu

    I thought we should concentrate all issues with one skin in one thread. Anyway, Here is my issue.

    The VIXBMC_1080_Confluence skin (but not only this one) shows the radio stream information in a tiny, fully uppercase font. This makes it difficult to read.
    Can you please adapt to look like to what I have seen on the Simple_Ten_Eighty.

    b) Simple_Ten_Eighty

    You will find such stream information on Swiss Jazz on Hotbird 13.0 E or BR-Klassik on 19.2 E.

    Thanks for your help

    Both of which would be broadcasts, not streaming?
    And when I listen to a radio stream (whether in TV or Radio mode - as I have them in both) I get no text on screen.

    Drop the attached file (unzip it...) into /etc/enigma2 (unless you already have your own skin overrides, in which case add the contents), restart enigma2 and see whether it affects things.

    I'll get this added to the standard skin code then.

    The channel must be sending RDS info, which Freeview doesn't (hence I see nothing).
    Interesting track....
