Nice Reaven man will try it. Mod is growing nicely Smile

*Edit:

Ok, anyone who has the old style clearart folder named "Cleararts" needs to change it to "Clearart".

Other problem is the size of my clearart has been squashed:

It used to be taller, I think this is the effect the new bar at the top is having on it.
yes I noticed that, you think is the top bar
get it just add the <aspectratio>keep</aspectratio> tag to this control

Code:
<control type="group">
    <control type ="image">
        <description>tv show image</description>
        <posx>1049</posx>    
        <posy>-108</posy>    
        <width>230</width>    
        <height>115</height>
        <texture>clearart/$INFO[VideoPlayer.TVShowTitle].png</texture>
        [color=Red]<aspectratio>keep</aspectratio>[/color]
        <visible>VideoPlayer.Content(episodes) + !Skin.HasSetting(yesclearart)</visible>
    </control>

I will be updating the dialogseekbar.xml
Works perfect now, thanks Wink

lol

I now want to add another rss ticker, to be able to see 2 at the same time its killing waiting to the rss ends so you can see the next one
hi folks.

so how are you guys dealing with the multi-language/cross-skin issue?
ronie's come up with quite an ingenious (and obvious if you think of how xbmc handles all other artwork) solution that could be easily implemented in a media companion (MIP/EMM) if a website offers an API for it.
@Imaginos
where do you scrape your nfos from since your shows are in french. do you use imdb or thetvdb?
I'm wondering what the hierarchy for storing cleararts should look like, and what would be the best way to make it language-agnostic.
the only solution that seems to pop up is : use imdb id number if available, then branch down to locale, like so:
show id number/:
-en/
--file1.png
--file2.png
--[...]
-fr/
--file1.png
--file2.png
--[...]

what do you guys think?

I scrapp from thetvdb, I don't know if your suggestion is usable, but it may be a good idea...
Don't have the time for now to check this but in several days maybe ... Smile
I've noticed my clearart doesn't appear all the way on the right hand side for some reason. There's maybe a 50-100 pixel gap. Anyone else having this problem?

Also I wouldn't mind my clearart to appear a bit larger on the screen, how hard would that be to code it in a little larger?
this is the clearArt control play with it
Code:
<control type ="image">
        <description>tv show image</description>
        <posx>1049</posx>    
        <posy>-108</posy>    
        <width>230</width>    
        <height>115</height>
        <texture>clearart/$INFO[VideoPlayer.TVShowTitle].png</texture>
        <aspectratio>keep</aspectratio>
        <visible>VideoPlayer.Content(episodes) + !Skin.HasSetting(yesclearart)</visible>
    </control>
play with the posx and width..
