I just want to say that I love the skin. It is so sleek, I just want to cry! I just have a few questions.

IPB Image

In the above pic, you can see the Programs menu divided into Games Programs and Emulators. Is there a way to make each one 'think' it is it's own menu? When I click on either one, it always takes me to the source screen. So in essence, I think it would be cool to click on Emulators and have it go directly to them, or Games and Programs.

Also, I have never saved a movie on my Xbox before. Do I just have to use DVD2XBOX and save the movie or do I save the ISO? This is the first skin that I want to take full advantage of.

To clarify the problem: In library wide mode, I can see the list of shows but they all say "0 Episodes" even though that isn't the case. I have my directories shared and can view and play in file mode.


Sounds like you need to set the content of the folder containing your library items. then scan them into your database. once you do, you should be able to see your items in the library.

i haven't tested those buttons, but they were designed to take you directly to emulators and games. what you have to do is add a source called emus for emulators, games for games, and apps for programs. that should then make those buttons go directly to those bookmarks. let me know if this works.

It seems to have worked. Thanks.

I'll second that. It looks very slick and is easy to use so anyone can pick up the remote and use it. I've tried every other skin but always went back to PMiii soon after due to it's unfussy design and ease of use. However Media Stream is a keeper :-)

Is there any way to setup TV just to link to my TV shows and MOVIES just to link to films. I edited sources but they all appear the same in VIDEOS, TV and MOVIES. Also when I've finished watching an TV episode instead of highlighting the file you've just watched so you can easily delete it or move onto the next one it automatically goes back to the start (I'm not using library mode if that makes any diference). Should it do this or is there an option I'm missing?

Cool work - keep it up. beerchug.gif

The skin is next to amazing! Great work.

I hope to switch from Basics Vision to this.

One thing I am missing though is an additional list option. That will be the "Full list". There is so much space that goes to waste when you don't have media icons for i.e. your music.

Please make a full list option. at least for music + images.

Then it would be perfect!

if you aren't using library mode, i think you have to define sources called tv and movies, and edit home.xml accordingly. for example, if you create a source called tv, the code would be XBMC.ActivateWindow(24,tv). for example, right now, if you have a source called tvshows, the tvshows button in the submenu of videos should bring up the files view of your tvhsows in that folder.

yes, this is a known issue. seems to happen when the scrollbars are turned on. we are looking into that problem.

Indeed.

By default the sources were named "Games", "Emulators" and "Programs" in xbmc.

Manualy changing them actualy worked.

Got the library to recognize all my files but not until I did a full clean install. Not sure what was holding it all back but really a clean install isn't hard to do - and it had been so long that maybe it was about time anyways.
