Mods:

Just Made some Mods for the latest MC360 Release..

- Added CPU Temp to info card on all Blades and config.

- Changed Info card to report FreespaceŠ if no network present.

- Added More Media controls to the DVD drive label.

- Fixed problem in Videofiles when you press down(on the last item)
or up(on the first item) focus moves to 'View As' button.

- Fixed problem in audio when you press down(on the last item)
or up(on the first item) focus moves to 'View As' button.

- Changed Pause Dialog Menu so that it does not appear when MusicCard
has been enabled and you are on the Home,Game or Live Blade.

- Modified the MC360 Guide to go straight to the Shutdown Menu without
having to go through the guide. The Guide is still accessible via the
start Button. But as the option is mainly for Remote-Control users I
thought this would be better.

- Added number 8 to the keymap.xml to enable remote-control users with
the standard remote to be able to use playlists.

Here are some screens:

HI Patrick,

Can you switch to the normal theme to see if its ok. It would confirm whether the addon has been installed ok.

I have not got that theme so I cannot really test it. If you let me know where you got the theme from I could look into it.

I have just finished updating the changes into the latest MC360 release.

The Changes are as follows:
======================================================
Just Made some Mods for the latest MC360 Release..

- Added CPU Temp to info card on all Blades and config.

- Changed Info card to report FreespaceŠ if no network present.

- Added More Media controls to the DVD drive label.

- Changed Pause Dialog Menu so that it does not appear when MusicCard
[URL=has been enabled and you are on the Home,Game or Live Blade.

- Modified the MC360 Guide to go straight to the Shutdown Menu without
having to go through the guide. The Guide is still accessible via the
start Button. But as the option is mainly for Remote-Control users I
thought this would be better.

- Added number 8 to the keymap.xml to enable remote-control users with
the standard remote to be able to use playlists.

* As well as this I have added the Lyrics script into the Music OSD. I had to make a few changes to the original Lyrics script to resize it so that it does not overlap the MC360 Display.

Here are Some Screenshots:

Ok did 2 others, and added the other stuff the above was missing. Here are screencaps of them in use, and then the image. Just right click and save it. 2nd one looks dark in the screencap but looks better on screen.

By the way where does this script get its lyrics from? Same place as the other one?

Also anyone know why it says XBOX MEDICA CENTER CVS when the lyrics bttn is selected?

Here is another one, I like how this one looks more.
