I downloaded these from x****


Not sure I needed the replacement uix.xbe so i tried installing it with the standard one + audio and fonts

It started fine, with it's standard 3-tab setting, I could change skins and fiddle with settings inside the dash.

But there is a time in life when a man can't be satisfied with a measly three tabs, and Music, Harddrive and Settings isn't really optimized for him anymore.

So I read around here on the UIX-forum looking for multi-tab functions and changing function on the menu-tabs, found exactly that in this thread:

Tried my best to configure the default.xip-file, being all jolly in my struggle i transfered my edited files to my xbox and tried starting up UIX.

But.. somewthing went wrong..
Instead of starting up a working UIX-dash, my Xbox just restarted with the standard splash-screen and straight back to evox.

Going back to my computer, thinking I might have done somehing wrong, I replaced the edited files with my back-ups and tried again.. but this time I only tried editing så that my music-tab would be for XBMC instead..

And I tried again..
but.. nah, it didn't work.. tha same thing happned.. noisy splash-screen followed by evox..

Then I read something about the fixed uix.xbe and tried the same with that one.. same results.

I'm good enough working the codes, not understanding all the "if=itemopenmenu>dir", but knowing where to place them. I'm the kind o guy who'd rather fix my XBMC-stream in th xml-file, if you kow what I mean..

can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Redirect me, send me a PM och just write i here, cause I'm all out of ideas..

A big smooch to the UIX-team for this great dash, if only it would work as good as it looks.. the potential is out there..

TRUST ME IT DOES. Ive got a 4 tab setup with about oooooooo 20 or so skins. Its the Best dash out there. your just doing something wrong. What you do is

get winxip
extract the file you wanna edit.
Got to where its extracted.
Then edit it to your likin.
Then go back to the XIP you should keep open.
Then go to the file you wanna replace.
Right click and hit inject.
Then Find the File you edited.
Once thats injected at the top hit SAVE.
Then Hit Close from the same menu.
Then FTP over the Files and try it.

Rinse... Repeat.

Works Every time for me.

Did you clear the UIX cache?

No, actually I didn't..
though I usually clear that folder when re-installing XBMC, which happens a number of times..
