I have been scanning through the forums, but have not seen this question posted (although I'm sure it has been posted before).
I am currently using, and loving my MC360 skin. I am wondering how I can add some features to the main menu, i.e my sirius script, etc.
Also, is there an easier way to get to the power off option, rather than digging through all the menus.
thank you all in advance for your help!

there is an easier way to get tp the shutdown menu in the new version 1.0 soon as for adding scripts to the actual home pages its a little hard.
But on the bright side version 1.0 has a favorites menu thats like the submenu in pm3 so you can add scripts there

Adding buttons is slightly trickier than with most other skins i've found, mainly due to the overlays. I'd just try looking at the home.xml, and then changing the menu button to open a script instead, unless you use a remote....In which case, i don't think there's room. Maybe you could do something where when that button is selected, pressing right or left would change it to various other actions like running a sirius script, or runnin the CNN script, and so on. Also, about powering down, if you're using the controller, just click the right thumbstick. If you're using the remote, then no. But who knows what changes we might see when 1.0 comes out in a week. I'd wait till then to start modding if I were you.

If you're using a remote, try using my updated keymap in my sig and then you can just press "zero".

You can add the file DialogSubMenu.xml and copy the contents from the shutdownmenu xml file to it. Then you can modify the content of DialogSubMenu.xml to whatever you want, like executing scripts from it.
I believe someone also made an automated process for this so you would not need to edit the xml manually (don't know where to find it though).
After you have modified the DialogSubMenu.xml you can attach a key to it in the keymap (I did it like this (for remote): "<two>XBMC.ActivateWindow(SubMenu)</two>")
It's actually very simple!
