He probably has an EDTV which is a widescreen.

Ok im gonna ask a very old request come back. The Favorites button is just to much for me, Is there a way, or could you possible bring back, or make an option in settings to place the favorite button in the upper left corner like your original. If you dont want to i understand, Maybe even make it a submenu or at least the option to. I Just hate the Favorites button in the main menu bar.

Ok since we have been playing with the flags, specifically the ones we have added, they do not slide over anymore if one is not there. I prefer this because not everything for everyone will have a tag.

Any clues on why Aenima99x?


- Aenima99x - 2009-07-31 21:41

I noticed it too, not sure why they aren't sliding over now. I'll look into it.

It is a widescreen edtv correct. I do not see the submenues in horizontal mode. they r there cuz i see a few pixels on top of main menu. it is like they are underneath the main menu. any ideas?

Set it to 720p and that should fix it....or you can run the video calibration also

I ran the calibration, I will try it in 720p, I would prefer to run it in 480p though. The text is hard to read in 720P. It works otherwise and the original mediastram_redux works fine, as does urs in regular mode. I will play with it to night and post my results. thanks.

I've noticed that if the string in 'studio' field is something like:

Lionsgate / Something

it doesn't work. It only works fine if the studio name is the only string, so i suggest to ignore the rest of the field contents if the first name matchs. Could this be changed?

Does this skin support music fanart? I'm unable to get it working... Also it could be nice some kind of coverflow like browsing for music albums...

UPDATE No BKGs per day (only needed if animating day-by-day) <Updated.pastbin.URL>
[Image: rvvx3c.jpg]

i make no claim i know what im doing, but it pretty much works as advertised Smile
plz have a look. any tips, tricks or improvements would be appreciated

Aenima99x | $cat "<control type="grouplist" id="9018">" >> home.xml NodLaugh
it also needs $SubMenuNo3dayWeather in Custom_SkinSettings_1111.xml

Lasty -- a couple of Q's for the group --
  • how to do incremental animation (1 day after the other) ?
  • i dont want to expand the height of the sub-menu (... no location) -- thoughts ?
  • this should auto-disable the pop-up (@ top-right) ?? ... if so -- how ?
  • where is the (>) @ bottom left... it should now show for weather
BTW: forget the "all weather" thing i posted a couple of days back; it need to be re-worked in with this stuff

let me know what yall think
cheers

Im not sure if the studio thing is possible. Lets say you have an entry from 20th Century Fox. There is also 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, 20th Century Fox Studios and 20th Century Fox Television. So if you change it to just read the beginning it will show all 4 logos. Because there are so many variations of studios these days it will become a mess.

That studio field was never meant to have other information. I know the flag hacks were like that at first.

I guess if there is a way to have it stop reading at the first "/". Why dont you play around with is fidoboy and let us know what you come up with.

Looks good. Will take a look once Aenima99x updates it into the main branch.

I'm not sure to understand you sorry, but the problem is that the scrapper that i'm using for movies retrieves the info in that way. For example, for the movie "The mist" it shows "Dimension films / Darkwood studios", on other movies it shows only the studio name and the flag works fine...

So i suppose that each scrapper (and web site where the scrapper looks for info) works in a different way and there isn't a fixed rule, the best solution is to allow to specify a custom field separator (or many of them) and then, split the studio field contents using the user defined separator ( / for example, or | or whatever...)
