Hi, just got a Q, have look all around but can't find an answer.

When configuring Transparecy skin to work with clearart i can ONLY choose 1 HDD but ive got my shows on 2. is there anything i can do?

Am I the only person with this problem?

Just add an extra control type to your dialogueseekbar.xml, so it looks *something* like this (directory in bold):

Code:
<control type="largeimage">
                <posx>-10</posx>
                <posy>25</posy>
                <width>275</width>
                <height>145</height>
                [b]<texture>F:/1- TV/$INFO[VideoPlayer.TVShowTitle]/clearart.png</texture>[/b]
                
                    <aspectratio>keep</aspectratio>
                <visible>VideoPlayer.Content(episodes)</visible>
            </control>
            <control type="largeimage">
                <posx>-10</posx>
                <posy>25</posy>
                <width>275</width>
                <height>145</height>
                [b]<texture>E:/1- TV/$INFO[VideoPlayer.TVShowTitle]/clearart.png</texture>[/b]
                
                <aspectratio>keep</aspectratio>
                <visible>VideoPlayer.Content(episodes)</visible>
            </control>

Don't copy & paste because this example is for a different skin

Thx for the quick reply, but had changed on the advancedsettings.ml but no luck. What file do i need to change?

thx

DialogueSeekbar.xml located at Aeon/720p.

Press ctrl+f and search for 'clearart' within the file or go to line 270 of the code, this should show you where the change I mentioned above needs to be made, at least that's how it is on my normal Aeon one.

you didnt miss anything the MOD post is the way it is but the way am using right now is another, DumbGum is right .

just need to change the image path to load from the source folder. look for the clearArt control inside DialogSeekBar.xml and change the path to:

Code:
<texture>[b][i]yourpath[/i][/b]/$INFO[VideoPlayer.TVShowTitle]/clearart.png</texture>

and it will load the clearArt.png form the source tvshow folder.
also the clearArt is rename to "clearart.png" since none of them reside in the same folder they all can be named "clearart.png"

Thanks
I see and If i have two Dirs I can had the same line twice but with different paths ?


- MikeLDN - 2009-11-27 15:23

Thanks, have managed to configure it, but with the skin i' ungits done in a complete difrent way.
Any Chances of 2 Shows?

Cougar Town and Modern Family cleararts? These are really great shows.

Sorry Reaven I have changed it to
Quote:<texture>C:/Media Center/TV Episodes/$INFO[VideoPlayer.TVShowTitle]/clearart.png</texture>
but its not picking up the clearart from the source can you see what im doing wrong ?

Thanks

because that is skin related exclusively for "transparency" .

from where you are trying to pull the clearArt? a remote share or local ?
*check the control type in the xml it suppose to be
Code:
<control type="largeimage">
