Trying without success to find and modify the language strings for the shutdown menu. For example if I want to change the word "Shutdown" to "Power Off" where would I find that?? Must be something simple I am missing?

if you look in DialogButtonMenu.xml, you'll see this line:
Code:
<label>13005</label>

this number refers to a string id in the kodi language file:
https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/blob/master...5580-L5581

you can either make your change in this language file, or simply change it to this in the .xml file:
Code:
<label>Power Off</label>

OK Thanks. I was looking for the corresponding language file within the skin folders. So I will just manually add like you suggest. Thanks again as always.
