"Now Playing" with NavStatus

Hi Dave,

SessionStatus would not update unless the current session was closed. NavStatus does that but will not go back to a previously started session. For example, let's say I start live TV, NavStatus=TV, then if I call the guide, NavStatus=Guide. From there it will not go back to NavStatus=TV upon resuming live TV, as it's never been stopped. Besides, stopping the media makes it switch to NavStatus=Unknown instead of the appropriate string.

In a previous post you mentionned overriding SessionStatus using menu messages in function 1... Can such overriding be adapted to NavStatus ?

I have added Mode=Stop as a new condition to enable default screen and Mode=Play to other screens, thus shortcutting the need to wait for NowPlaying to clear. Fixes both my issues with using only NavStatus or SessionStatus.

I need to train myself to figure these things out faster.
