path with spaces works, it gets URL encoded by xbmc.
you have to use content target="" i think. also try without target at all.
you could also try pvr://channels/tv/$LOCALIZE[Id_of_corresponding_xbmc_label_id]/

(never looked into PVR too much so I can only guess)

AWESOME, a huge Thank You.
I managed to get the PVR channels to display straight inline thru the Home menu. I have now all the features following the same layout directly accessible in home. I will start now coding from a white page since I understand much better the structure and don't want to clean the code of an existing skin.

Thanks.

Just giving some news. I'm actually still working on it, the home menu is almost built and works perfectly. The problem is that the more I feel confortable with the code, the more I want to add. I don't know how many times I have rewritten the Home.XML and finally divided it's size by 3 when discovered variables ...

It is mostly PVR oriented since I use it 99% of the time and I build it around this. The most interresting is that I managed to get channels navigation directly from home. So no need to navigate between windows (press home, pvr is the first item, just scroll left or right to select channel and see program informations). That's really confortable to my taste.

Have made some design improvements too, I planned to post a video in some days and maybe live shots this week.

It looks really nice.
I think the fonts look quite small, but that's just a matter of personal taste Smile

Thanks.

Well it looks fine on my TV and computer, but I use large screen. It should not be a problem to add a "bigger font" setting in the skin options if needed.

Thanks all. No download yet. Here's what is working ... still many things doesn't. There's a lot of work before posting a usable preview.

For the customizable background, it's planned but won't be up for first releases. I'm working on something to be fully working now and will add extra features and customization later when stable (if possible).

Info : EPG grid is coded
