NOTEWORTHY CHANGES IN THIS BUILD
QUOTE

- Keymap.xml: delete single bookmark in video osd.
- XboxMediaCenter.xml: multi-path change in My Programs



Install notes from T3CH readme/nfo:
QUOTE

* DASHBOARD INSTALL
Thanks to a new app called 'Team UIX's Xbe Shortcut Maker v1.0' by JbOnE, it's now extremely easy...
Edit XBMC\xboxmediacenter.xml to your liking & transfer contents of XBMC folder TO (this is VERY important) "E:\APPS\XBMC\". Rename <<RENAME_ME.xbe>> to something your bios can boot (see http://manual.xboxme...BMCAsDash#h44-2 or read your BIOS README) and transfer to your C partition. No need to fiddle with HOME tag anymore, and future upgrades you won't need to worry about this file on C.

* APPLICATION INSTALL
Edit XBMC\xboxmediacenter.xml to your liking.
Transfer _whole_ XBMC folder to your APPS folder.

* UPGRADE TIPS
If you're updating from a VERY old/bad build you may get issues. Follow these simple rules:
- Replace (FTP OVERWRITE) all files in your XBMC folder with fresh ones from your new build
- Delete old savegame/settings (from E:/TDATA/0face008)
- In some rare cases some of the database files in XBMC/Albums/*.db may need manual deletion (usually if they are very old). Note: This loses all per file settings you made with the old build!



The XBMC manual is available on The XboxMediaCenter manual has also been updated with information about the trainer feature, check it out on manual.xboxmediacenter.de.
You can add more scripts and skins yourself if desired. You can download them from http://allxboxskins.com, http://www.xbox-skins.net and http://www.xbmcscripts.com.
Keep in mind this is a CVS snapshot of the current development tree. It's not a official (stable) point release. Use only if you know what you are doing.

Anything like the 2006-02-26-T3CH build and i'll do myself in biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Seriously though i have been waiting for a new build to get that mess off my box (Couldn't find a previous version that would let me change the number of buttons in My Programs)
Really looking forward to the next stable wink.gif

Interested to find out more about this 'Party Mode Manager' feature which has been completely rewritten.
Did a search on the documentation http://manual.xboxmediacenter.de but could not find any reference too it.
Anyone used it? Know how to use it?

The bug is in XboxMediaCenter.xml !!!!!
If i substitute XboxMediaCenter.xml file with the one of the 2006-02-26 version (without any modification, simply extracted from the .rar) i can enter in my shared folder.

I hope that this information will be useful to correct the problem in the next relase!

Check what the differences are.. I don't see any differences that should cause an issue with the browsing of SMB shares...

Please do a diff on the XMLs and see..

I'm pretty new to all of this but I went ahead and installed this latest build. Everything seems to be working fine except for the "Movie Trailers" and "Music Videos" links on the "scripts" button on the lower right of the screen. The movie trailers used to work in my previous build. I can go into the scripts and launch the Quicktime browser script and watch the trailers but I'd rather be able to just click that one quick link.
