Turning off 'Scan Directory' and 'Scan File' in Collections in RGUI


#1

I am preparing a console running RGUI for my kids and want to have the interface as clutter-free as possible. The User Interface settings allow me to go straight to Load Content > Collections with two presses. Here, however, beside the manually named playlists, I have two entries ‘Scan Directory’ and ‘Scan File’, which I do not need at all and which are at the top, no matter how the playlists are named. Is there an easy way to remove them?


#2

your best bets are user interface > views and ‘kiosk mode’. If those don’t do it, I think you’re out of luck, though I’m pretty sure XMB should at least remove them in kiosk mode, as I believe that was part of the reason Brunnis made that feature.


#3

I am not using XMB, but RGUI, which does not have the kiosk mode (my device cannot run XMB).


#4

You can hide the Import Content menu in RGUI by toggling the option in Settings -> User Interface -> Views -> Show Import Content Tab


#5

It is off already and it does not show in the main menu. I was asking about two items in the Collections menu.

Ah ok now I see what you mean – I’ve not used playlists much in RGUI. I feel like there are potentially two different issues that could be filed here, assuming they don’t already exist on github.

#1: It seems like a bug that hiding the scanner in the Views menu doesn’t hide the scanner from both places it appears in RGUI. I wouldn’t be surprised if no one has taken the time to report this before now.

#2: It seems like a legitimate request to ask about the addition of Kiosk Mode to RGUI.

OK, I will check out the issues to see if it was reported.
