This plugin adds a Volume OSD to NextPVR. It appears only when you change the volume while playing video (Live TV, recorded shows, videos and DVDs).

Downloading and Installing

The latest version of the VolumeOSD plugin is v1.1. (3456 downloads)




There's no user interface for settings as the plugin can usually configure itself automatically.

A couple of advanced settings can be changed by editing NextPVR's config.xml file with Notepad or similar.

The OSD timeout can be set by editing the value of Settings/PluginSettings/Volume/OsdTimeOut. The default is 2000ms (2 seconds).

If you are running Windows XP, you may need to set Settings/PluginSettings/Volume/UseWaveOutVolumeLine to 'true', depending on your sound card setup.


This plugin is discussed in the Add Ons forum.


To uninstall, simply delete the \Plugins\Volume and \Skin\Default\Volume directories found under your NextPVR data directory.
