When using the white theme, the visualization screen has black text which cannot be read because of the black background, also when you launch the lyrics script the pop-up box is white and the text is white making it hard to read

I edited the musicoverlays.xml and got nothing the now playing screen still doesnt come up,

Hey Chief, love the skin.
Been using the album information scan for music, all is well, it gets the thumb and information from the internet but next time you go to album information for the same album it starts the search again, can this information be saved, So second time around the xbmc doesn't have to search the internet

I'm not sure if this is a Skin problem or a xbmc problem let me know so I can try and get this sorted...

yeah i did a clean install.

just updated again: now the now playing screen doesnt pop up at all. while playing music on the home-screen nothing pops up and while listening to music in a folder the overlay in the top corner will fade out when the big now-playing should come into view but.... nothing.

sorry
edit: ok it does pop in but first everything happens like i just posted, then music visualisations kick in and then quite some time later, now playing apears.

Yes that was totally my fault again. Like I said I have been doing some messin around with being able to change the timeout using a script and that timeout was changed while I was doing it and i just forgot to change it back. It is fixed now and by tommorrow I will be done and you guys can edit the timeout yourselves without editing any xml's.

after using this theme almost every movie from my hd started to lag and even freeze.

After applying another theme everything works fine... does anyone else have this isssue?

I can't explain that one.

That fading background is blue, and yeah I know it is black. I am working on everything just gimme time. I am more concerned with bugs at the moment and I will get to the minor annoyances later.

That is not a skin problem that I know of. I hope I am wrong cause that does kinda suck.

All those thumbs are in .tbn format which can't be viewed using the picture viewer that I know of. I tried setting a folder that has a defualt.tbn in it and I was not even able to see it from MyPictures so there is nothing I can do about it.

So just finished with the timeout changing option. It works well enough for now. I am not able to make it work using a custom.cof file with your own specified timeout yet but I have a few presets in there - 30 seconds,1 minute,2 minutes,3 minutes,4 minutes, and 5 minutes. That is the best I can do for now.

Remember to do a clean install.

Shoot, I saw this screen shot and I got all excited for a second. I thought it was a screen shot of xTV running from a Mac OS X version of XBMC. That would be awesome, XBMC on a Mac, too bad it will probably never happen. Great theme anyways though.

That is weird, it works fine for me and the xmls you guys have are the ones straight off my xbox for the most part so I dunno why it is not working for you.

So I setup a new svn repository with all the goodies in it. There was no way in hell I was giving anyone my google code username and password.

Here is the the address you can use to checkout the whole thing with your svn client or you can just click it to browse and download one at a time:
https://opensvn.csie.org/CHI3fs_Stuff/

It contains all the themes made so far for xtv and also contains the xTv changelog, YouTube2, and XinBox scripts all skinned to xTV. Make sure you read the WARNING.txt that is in the scripts folder so we do not have any misunderstandings.

Enjoy.

My first theme for xTV titled xdTV. Not only that but my first theme fullstop. Below are some visuals you may already have seen but this is it so please check it out and see any problems please let me know.

xdTV Theme


On a side note. CHI3F is possible to implement a way of having a background visualisation playing behind the skin like in MC360. I know it might not be to everyones taste but with an option to turn on and off would be nice.
