    Why do you think it is the wrong approach?

    My suggestions:
    I would prefer the Yellow Swap service to work. But if that is not possible then the menu entry should be hidden.
    Regarding the Green button, maybe it could cycle between…

    I just find it odd that swap service is not working in this version when it was working in the 0.7 version...

    I understand that some code is shared between pip and splitscreen since they basically do the same but in different ways.

    But seen from a…

    It is being used as PIP, and I think it should work similar to PIP.

    I had version 0.7 of the splitscreen plugin. Swap service worked in that version...

    I got it by downloading from sourgeforge.

    The extension is working. Thank you for adjusting the it and adding more options.

    Is it only me who cannot get the Swap service (yellow) to work? It works fine when using normal PIP, but not when using…

    You are right. If 0.11 is the newest one then that is the one I am looking for. :-)

    It does not seem to be available from the plugin/extension menu.

    The developers at my job do many tasks they don't want to do, but they do it anyway because they get paid.


    I have told you about my use case and made my arguments.

    I would really appreciate if a function to keep aspect ratio was added to the plugin.

    Then please tell me the point. I seem to be unable to get it. :-)

    I want black bars top and bottom. You think it is a bad idea and won't give me that.

    More?

    Nice to see the discussion going.

    And it looks like we found the developer haha.

    I use my Dreambox as a kind of info screen, that is the reason why I want to show two channels side by side. Distorted pictures is not something anybody would like to look…

    Yes, the TVs did that in the past. Today most content is transmitted in native 16:9 with pillarbox when old 4:3 content is displayed. Some crop the picture in top and bottom to 14:9 as a middle way but I don't see that often…

    Maybe the function is not part of DreamOS, but it is available as a plugin.

    I have DreamOS 4.3 2r7-2019-07-30

    Why give me downvotes for a legitimate question?

    I am sorry if any developers are offended. That was my intension.

    But I cannot think of a use case where anybody would use the current split screen outside of an emergency. I have worked in the…

    Haha. Don't get me started on the pip function... It is not possible get two pictures side by side using pip...

    I want usability. Maybe I am asking too much and will need to realise that the development of the OS is almost dead...
