More important thing is mouse movement acceleration if It's possible :)
And If It possible to use flash library like swfdec :)
Not for watching videos but using flash menus...

The biggest problem that I see, when I move the mouse, flash disk shows read/write. ...
I think utility uses USB disk for cache/log purposes.
I think it's better to have temp/cache files to /mtd_ram/NetSurf directory.
I think you can copy NetSurf to the internal memory of your TV, then type this command in telnet once only:

Code: Select all

ln -fs /mtd_ram/NetSurf.log /mtd_tlib/GGame/NetSurf/output.log
and output file will be created on mtd_ram partition.
Before removing NetSurf from your TV you will have to remove the link:

Code: Select all

rm /mtd_tlib/GGame/NetSurf/output.log
BTW: Great work. Thanks!

EDIT (2010-03-01):
I thought that much better solution for hiding log file is redirecting it to dev/null so we won't reach RAM limits:

Code: Select all

ln -fs /dev/null /mtd_tlib/GGame/NetSurf/output.log

Himm, thanks for the tip.
I think we needed to run NetSurf without logging. Could we disable it at compilation time? That way will make more speedy / responsive NetSurf application by reserving few CPU cycle :D
Also we needed to solve that "enter key at keyboard" problem. Does your keyboard "enter" doesn't work too?

My USB keyboard works like yours. I can enter an URL (except some special characters because SHIFT key is not handled correctly), but I don't know how to "hit GO" for that new URL. ENTER key doesn't make it.

USB mouse works very slowly indeed. Maybe NetSurf should buffer some data packets before utilizing them for cursor movement (i.e. update cursor position in memory registers and ocasionally redraw the cursor on the screen). Or maybe SamyGO mouse driver module produces too big resolution for NetSurf - I don't know. It looks like there is no CPU power for so many tasks in one short period of time. Or... maybe logging consumes the power?
I wish we could test the second release of NetSurf Web browser soon ;)

When I open the gallery from my usb stick, I see the folder "NetSurf", but, when I press "Ok", nothing happens.

Could it be a problem of the firmware of my TV?

Actuallly the firm is: 2005.00
The model: LE37B650T2WXXH


Thanks for your help!!
I don't think. Try reinstall NetSurf to your USB, or try with another USB or by Samba/NFS mount

Thanks for great program :P . I got Samsung LE40B651T3W (firmware 2005 - last).

Observation:
- mouse works (with SamyGO staff) but lag
- keyboard work only for move cursor (both Enter don't work)
- application work on FAT32 system (at NTFS got black screen and next restart TV)

My ideas:
- virtual keyboard
- text-file for bookmarks (easy to edit by hand)

My proposal for Content icon:

TV LCD: Samsung LE40B651T3W (CI) | Internet@TV | fw: 2005 (patched: SamyGO v0.24 + GMT2, ArFIX2, ADFIX) | matrix: SQ04
BluRay: Samsung BD-D5300-ZF | SamsungApps | fw: 1013
Android-Box: Zidoo X8 | Realtek RTD1295 64bit (QuadCore), Mali-T820 GPU, 2 GB RAM, HDMI IN record, Android 6.0 | ZDMC 17.1
my projects: Remote LAN Control - Desktop app (v0.8) | Signal checker for DVB-T (v0.3)
