Also (not sure if it's fixable or even a bug) I think the TV Show - Next Aired addon should probably run at start-up in the background...it doesn't seem to work for me in the home "Video" pane unless I manually load up the add-on first. Or maybe add an option to auto-start in options or something.

This skin is so functional, really nice work. my main skin now.

1. It is a limitation, I need more investigating. Only scripts as of now not plugins for submenu

2. It does run at startup, but it needs to be a cold start, meaning startup.xml is not run when you switch from one skin to another...Same with Random script, those two run at startup.

First of all great job with the skin, I just have two little questions.

Is it possible to disable HD Movies in Home view?
And also could you include a shutdown timer in the settings part?

You can disable any home category you want in Settings->Skin->Home Window (or something like home window Confused)

In Settings > Skin > Custom Home I am only able to add Custom Favorites or Playlist, i don't see any option to remove a category whatsoever.

Settings > Skin > Disable Home

And shutdown timer accessed by 'Press S' dialog, actually it's the exact same as Confluence...


- rausch101 - 2010-12-16 20:32

it's there in one of the tabs. At work now or i'd tell you exactly which one. It's the one that warns you "It is recommended that you keep at least 9 home menu items"

I seriously don't have the option "Disable Home" in Settings -> Skin... Laugh
I got General, Custom Home, Background, Addon Scripts, Movies/TV and Music - thats it.

Also I - and I guess many other users - don't have the 'S' button mapped on my remote, so it would be nice to have the option to reboot, shutdown(timer) under Settings. Like this:
[...]
Profiles
Systeminfo
Reboot
Shutdown
e.g.

nice repsonse haha

install this repository: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?p=628636

Carmichael SVN is on there, so you can just get it via the Addon manager after you install the XBMC-Passion Repository

EDIT: or manually download from here: http://passion-xbmc.org/addons/

That is a great response haha Big Grin


Programs - hogfan - 2010-12-22 21:41

Programs? I can't seem to find this section in this skin. Is it still being worked on?

Looking good!
Thanks for all your hard work and updates Big Grin

I love the cover flow view. I have just one feature request and I don't know how hard it would be to implement. It would be great if there was an overlay for dvd/bluray covers. I like that feature in T! because it gives a visual representation of the physical media and it serves the purpose of telling the user if the file is dvd or bluray.

This is a simple request. Feel free to tell me to shutty if you don't want to do it.Big Grin

BTW, I love this skin. It has by far the best view for games. Keep up the good work.
