Hi, is there any chance for you to make support for SuperTv in your skin? http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=125291 As is it only work correctly in default skin. In Transparency it runs but the black back panel is gone making it difficult to browse.

the script should provide all the textures it needs.
currently supertv doesn't work in any skin, except confluence.

best ask for help in the supertv thread.

Been using the bigger pannels for about a week now and must say its very nice to be able to just start a suggested album Or movie from the home screen widget :-)
I like the pannels, very useful, like how easy it is.. Instead of having to click through the submenues..


I do have a suggestion, could the suggested submenu be made to look more like the widget? With 3 albums pr row? That way the users of the skin could turn of the widgets if they find them to big or find that they hide to much of the background and then just click the suggested tab in the submenu and get the same eyecandy
Another thing is when chosing an album the widget dissapears.. So no way of chosing another suggested album while the music is playing, that ok for the widget but could it be made so that when using the suggested submenu when chosing an album the suggested windows stay open and dosnt go to fullscreen?

Edit: the widget and the not being able to choose another album is not that big a problem when using remote.. I was using my mouse and had to turn of the music from the buttons..

Whoops - I deleted the suggested submenu yesterday. No problems though, I quite like the idea of having them in a panel so I'll redo them. will have to look at favourites also as the original idea was for them all to be similar.
.
Reason why widget dissapears after starting album was because I didn't want to lose the now playing cd box and disc and there's not room for both, however could rethink that idea as personally I'm always in music viz with music playing. I can see the point about starting an album and then deciding you'd prefer something different and it would be helpfull if they were still all on the home screen.

is it possible to make a slide out menu like the one for the submenues but starting from the right side of the screen opening to the left? that could leave the now playing cd box as the slideoutmenu would slide out and hide it but only as long as its opened.. ??

To check for you, I've just completely uninstalled XBMC and all userdata, then re-installed XBMC 11.0 downloaded the repo zip file, installed it via the zip option then used get addons from mudisle repo and installed Convergence.svn no problems.

I'd suggest unistall the repo file and delete the zip file from your xbmc/addons/packages folder then redownload a new copy and try again.

Hi. I did what you suggested, but it didn't help. I still get the message: "Add-on has been marked as broken in repository. Depencies not met."

I found this line from log: "ERROR: Texture manager unable to load file: C:\temp\xbmc.repo.mudisle.zip\icon.png"

Don't worry too much about the missing icon.png, that's not what's breaking your install.

The dependencies for the skin are as follows

Code:
<import addon="script.artistslideshow" version="1.1.5"/>
<import addon="script.artwork.downloader" version="1.0.7"/>
<import addon="script.tvtunes" version="1.0.15"/>
<import addon="script.watchlist" version="0.1.8"/>
<import addon="script.favourites" version="3.2.1"/>
<import addon="script.globalsearch" version="0.1.7"/>

The version numbers are the oldest version acceptable and can all be found in the Official Eden Repo. You could try download and install them, before trying the skin.

A version of Convergence.svn in can be found HERE

I'm interested if you know which addon it was, as your problem shouldn't have happened
