Hi All,

I'd like the Recent Movies on the home page to span the whole top of the screen (i don't have tv shows so it shouldn't conflict).

I think i need to edit the includes.xml but i can't find it Sad

I'm running the latest eden build from Nito TV on an ATV 2..

Could someone explain how i can acheive this please?

thanks

Dan

You need to edit the "IncludesHomeRecentlyAdded.xml"

Therein you see the first group for movies visible when focus is on videos...starting with:
Code:
            <control type="group">
                <posx>740</posx>
                <posy>30</posy>
                <visible>Library.HasContent(Movies)</visible>
                <visible>Container(9000).Hasfocus(2)</visible>

Then you must arrange posx and posy to you liking and delete the group for tvshows...
This is around here:
Code:
            <control type="group">
                <posx>0</posx>
                <posy>30</posy>
                <visible>Library.HasContent(TVShows)</visible>
                <visible>Container(9000).Hasfocus(2)</visible

iOS path /private/var/stash/Applications/XBMC.frappliance/XBMCData/XBMCHome/addons/skin.confluence/720p/IncludesHomeRecentlyAdded.xml

Here's one that I modified awhile back that will list 10 (It shows 6 on screen and you can scroll left or right to see the others)

I can't paste the code for the whole file, because it's too long, but you should be able to right click my link above and save the file to your computer. Otherwise, here are the changes to make:

Line 110 change
Code:
<posx>0</posx>
to
Code:
<posx>-90</posx>
Line 112 change
Code:
<width>900</width>
to
Code:
<width>1080</width>
Line 274 insert
Code:
            <item id="6">
                <label>$INFO[Window.Property(LatestMovie.6.Title)]</label>
                <label2></label2>
                <onclick>PlayMedia($INFO[Window.Property(LatestMovie.6.Path)])</onclick>
                <icon>$INFO[Window.Property(LatestMovie.6.Thumb)]</icon>
                <thumb>-</thumb>
            </item>
            <item id="7">
                <label>$INFO[Window.Property(LatestMovie.7.Title)]</label>
                <label2></label2>
                <onclick>PlayMedia($INFO[Window.Property(LatestMovie.7.Path)])</onclick>
                <icon>$INFO[Window.Property(LatestMovie.7.Thumb)]</icon>

Let me double check to see if there were other changes I made on the home.xml that might affect it.

I've put the IncludesHomeRecentlyAdded.xml into iOS path /private/var/stash/Applications/XBMC.frappliance/XBMCData/XBMCHome/addons/skin.confluence/720p/IncludesHomeRecentlyAdded.xml but it doesn't seem to have made a difference. what i'm after is the recently added movies to span the whole of the top of the screen...

I'm having trouble relocating or recreating this issue when comparing my changes to the Eden Beta. What version of XBMC are you using?
