UMP (Unified Media Platform)

9.2 OSD Commands


Commands that are executed in the OSD itself will either return to the Commands Menu after displaying the ‘Running Command’ dialog or present a new dialog box with either one or two choices, depending on the Command. The first choice is always ‘OK’ which confirms the script was executed and returns to the Command Menu. In some cases you may see a second option, called ‘Show output’, which shows a dialog with the ‘shell output’ of the command, providing more information about the action performed and its result.


To abort a command, press the Start/Stop OSD button on the remote control (UMP-R-1XX) or select ‘stop_osd’ from the Helper scripts under Plugins in the Web Interface. You can also choose to refresh the graphical environment entirely by selected the ‘restart_gui’ helper. The OSD will be launched automatically again afterwards.


Note that if you run the ‘cache’ helper from the Web Interface, there will be no notification in the OSD to inform you of this. In some cases, if a ‘moving image’ screensaver (bouncing_ump, bouncing_ump2 and balls) is active, the OSD may be blended into the screensaver for a brief while. This is purely cosmetic, and doesn’t influence the functionality in any way. It is recommended to restart the OSD if the cache was rebuilt from the Web Interface.
