Hi there, great skin. Its missing one essential media flag the AVC-HD codec one. Its not detecting it with my movies. Everything else seems fine.

Also forgot to mention the main reason I went with you skin was the tv guide. And well when you go into the tv guide in the per day section the posters are blank, same goes for the banners. I downloaded posters and banners and its still blank.

Can you point me to a skin that does have it? I did some quick looking but didn't find anything...

A debug log for this one will help. You are using library mode, right?

Thanks,

Its either AVC-HD or AVC-1 not sure what its labeled as but its on transparency. Here is a picture of it.

Thanks,

I am not sure you can switch modes I am talking about the TV Guide section not the TV Shows section. Here this pictures should help elaborate what I mean.

http://i52.tinypic.com/xf3oxu.jpg

Basically even though I have posters for those shows they still show as blank in the tv guides section, same goes for the banners. I tried using the Poster and Banner downloader in the skin setting and its still blank.

Edit: Okay basically the flag is there in the Night skin its labeled as avc1 yet it doesn't detect it with the video I have. Transparency detects it fine.

Okay I fixed your code for you in regards to the vc1 issue.

Add this into your includescodec xml.

<control type="image">
<description>vc-1 Codec Image</description>
<width>60</width>
<height>40</height>
<aspectratio>keep</aspectratio>
<texture>flagging/video/avc1.png</texture>
<visible>substring(ListItem.VideoCodec,vc-1)</visible>
</control>

Now can you please figure out why were not seeing banners or posters in the TV Guide section? I posted pictures of what I mean in the post above.

One of the best skins I have ever tried. you made a wonderful job.

I wish if you can add an option in the skin settings to change the virtual keyboard layout into QWERTY layout.

Thank you for all your efforts.

I think you are missing folder.jpg in your individual tv show folders. I did a quick look through the custom_TV_Monday and other xml files, and it looks like the script is looking for the folder.jpg files. The scripts should be looking for poster.jpg or banner.jpg files. I might be missing something, but I'll check again.

Yeah it definitely should be looking for poster and banner jpegs, folder ones are way to wide. I'll manually edit it later on tonight and see if it works thanks for the heads up buddy!

Minor bug...in the TV Guide screen, the Home and Fresh words are blurry as if two sets are overlayed on each other, slightly offset.

I am fairly certain that Neon does not support banner.jpg, at least this was what I was told from the developer. I think you have to save your banner as folder.jpg.

I've updated the TV Guide to only look for Poster.jpg or Banner.jpg and ignore any folder.jpg.

Another bug I found was the network logos were not displaying - this is also fixed.

Bug in Pictures?....in the grid view, the large picture on the right displays some pictures sideways even though the small preview grid shows the picture in the correct orientation.

I just checked to see what that entails, and I can now assure you it just got bumped down (permanently?) on my list of things to do. You are welcome to check out the DialogKeyboard.xml file and change it around yourself, but considering you have to change each and every letter and their respective up, down, left, right, I think you will see why I don't want to do this. Smile

If anyone takes this one, I will gladly add it in... I'd strart by grabbing the keyboard file from Aeon MQ 2 as it is already in that format.
