hello all. i am trying to make the xbox boot to the "games" menu screen instead of the standard unleashx "home" screen. if this is unclear i am trying to set up a box for a buddy who does not want his kids to even see the options on the "landing page". he wants to boot the xbox, then see the games loaded on the HDD. not sure where to start... any ideas? thanks

Edit the <Menu> section of config.xml so that only the items you want (i.e. the games) are on the top level menu. If you want to provide a backdoor just put everything else behind a passcode or password protected entry.

The best manual I can find quickly is here, but that doesn't mention passcode protection.....

Here's my standard config for you to use as a starting point. I've only included the section from <Menu> onwards:
CODE
<Menu>
        <Item Action="E:\Dashboard\XBMC\xbmc.xbe">XBox Media Centre</Item>
        <Item Action="LaunchDVD">Launch DVD</Item>

    </Menu>
</UnleashX>


Line 14 - <List Text="XBox Admin" Sort="On" Auto="On" Passcode="AYBX"> is the line that passcode protects the rest of the menu. You could also use a keyboard password if you prefer:
<List Text="XBox Admin" Sort="On" Auto="On" Password="Xbox">

...but I find passcode is easier.
