A template is a type of content that cannot be programmed directly on a screen or added to a playlist; the function of a template is to generate a poster. Templates can include:

  1. Playlists
  2. RSS: an easy way to display up-to-date information from websites directly on your screen without having to visit the websites one by one. This information is automatically updated, and is available for any website that offers RSS services.
  3. Streaming content: this allows content to be heard and seen while it is being downloaded. Using a URL with a format supported by your player, you can show live TV on your screen.
  4. Text: this option lets you write or copy text documents in plain text.

To generate a poster from a template, you just have to edit any of the characteristics of a template (change the name, add a description, or upload content) and then save it.
