Full Version: Hide or fade GUI elements in order to prevent Plasma TV burn-in?
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I recently found a moderate burn-in in my Plasma TV.

My wife became a funart hog and spends hours running XBMC GUI looking for funarts. Currently we use Babylone and PM3.HD skin.

Is there any way to black out/hide some static GUI elements like "XBMC Media Center -video -files" on the top, page number on the bottom, left menu or at least fade them.

Thanks in advance.

Everything is skinnable. Go for it.
Or enable the fade screensaver.

I understand that, but some help would be appreciated.

I can remove "XBMC Media Center" form the strings.xml file but have no idea how to remove the entire heading with all dashes etc. either modifying script or some kind of resource file. I'm not asking to waist your time and do it for me, just need some clues.
if your talking PM3.HD here you can open up 720p/includes.xml and edit this bit

PHP Code:
    <include name="WindowTitleCommons">
        <
posx>110</posx>
        <
posy>50</posy>
        <
width>1060</width>
        <
height>30</height>
        <
font>font18</font>
        <
textcolor>white</textcolor>
        <
scroll>false</scroll>
        <
align>left</align>
        <
aligny>center</aligny>
        <include>
Window_OpenClose_Animation</include>
    </include> 
and just make <font>font18</font> somthing like <font>-</font> that way it wont find the right font so wont display anything
