gerryyoung1977,

you need to edit the stings.xml file in the \language\English directory of the skin (where ever that may be on your particular system). Go to the line '<string id="31028">Music Videos</string>' and change it to whatever you want to call it.

When postings problems, please provide build details. If required a FULL debug log can now be submitted from the skin in settings->appearance->skin->settings>support. Ensure debug logging has been set in settings->system->debugging (or from the support menu). FAQ's located at :- http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Add-on:XTV-SAF

gerryyoung1977,

It's there Dude. I'm willing to put money on it that you are looking at the wrong strings.xml file. There is a strings.xml file for xbmc and there is one for each of the skins that you have installed.

The one you need to change is located at ...\XBMC\addons\skin.xTV_SAF_v0.96\language\English the one you are looking at is located ...\XBMC\language\English. Hint, if you are looking at the correct file you will see on line five of the file '<!-- Start startup strings 31001 - 31025-->'. If you don't see that, you are in the wrong file, keep looking.

Sorry I can't give you the exact location as I am running XP SP3 (and my next upgrade will be to Linux). From memory the Wiki lists the location of the XBMC directory in each OS, so if you can't find the location go check that out.

As a final hint, backup the strings.xml file before you start to play with it or you run the chance of completely borking the skin.
