Extract the zip's contents into C:\Users\Public\NPVR (or equivalent). If you use a skin other than the default, you'll also need to copy the \skin subfolder over to whichever one you use instead. The plugin comes with skin files for the Default nPVR skin.

Attach:{$Name}.jpg

The System plugin provides three main items of functionality:

* An overview of upcoming or active recordings.
* An overview of all attached hard drives, network drive, etc; their capacities and current usage.
* Options for controlling Windows power states (shutdown, reboot, etc).

!! Downloading and Installing
The latest version of the {$Name} plugin is v0.10.08.08, released on August 8th, 2010.

Download:{$Name}.zip

Extract the zip's contents into C:\Users\Public\NPVR (or equivalent). If you use a skin other than the default, you'll also need to copy the \skin subfolder over to whichever one you use instead. The plugin comes with skin files for the Default nPVR skin. It is also supported by the [[http://gbpvr.com/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/N-PVRSkins/Wave | Wave]], [[http://gbpvr.com/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/N-PVRSkins/BlueRetroVE | BlueRetroVE+]] and [[http://forums.gbpvr.com//showthread.php?47119-NextBlue-skin-for-npvr | NextBlue]] skins.

!! Requirements (nPVR only)
This plugin has been tested with nPVR v1.5.28 and v1.5.31 only. It will not work with earlier versions.

!! Configuration
All settings for the plugin can be configured using the standard nPVR Settings Dialog (right-click, and select Settings). The following options can be configured:

General Settings:

* '''Active buttons (and order)''' - defines which buttons will be active and their order.
* '''Cutoff threshold (in minutes) for warning about pending recordings''' - once a pending recording is due to start within this threshold time, the status messages will change to a warning colour (dependant on skin).
* '''Confirm shutdown/reboot etc''' - specifies the conditions under which the plugin will ask for confirmation before applying a power state. The options are '''Always''', '''Only when recording/within pending threshold''' or '''Never'''.

Drive Monitoring:

Use the list control to add, remove, or edit the drives to be monitored. Each drive will be configured with its letter (c: d: etc), and an icon to display for it. The selected icon does not have to match the drive type - it's completely up to you which one you pick. You can add up to ten drives, with the skin adapting its display in different ways for up to 3, 5, or 10 drives.

* '''Show drive letters''' - if selected, the drive letter of each drive will appear next to its name
* '''Show used space rather than free space''' - check to display, for example: 10 GB used of 100 GB (10%). Uncheck to display 90 GB free of 100 GB (90%).
* '''Auto switch to Tuner View when recordings start/end''' - if selected, the plugin will switch views automatically based on recording activity.

!!Using the Plugin

The plugin will automatically select either the Drives view or the Tuners view based on current activity. It defaults to the Drives view, switching to Tuners if recordings become active. You can manually flick between them by selecting the View button, or by pressing the Info (CTRL+B) button on your remote.
