Am I missing something or is there an easy way to get cast info while watching a TV show? Many times I'll be tempted to look and see the name of a certain actor, but it seems rather inelegant to have to back out to the episode information screen and select cast. I searched this forum but didn't see anything that addressed my question. Thanks.
sorry, this one slipped my mind a bit...

yes, it's possible to show a list of actors there,
though it's not implemented in Transparency!

i could add it, but only by popular demand. ;-)

It would make another nice feature. Nod
I would be happy to have this for movies as well. Smile

We paused and backed out of Secretariat four times the other night to see the cast info. Finally everybody was just like "forget it." No
good enough for me. :-)

available in svn now.

available in svn now.

I haven't used SVN before. If I wanna try that new version. Will I just use a SVN gui-program and download everything in that dir into the old skin-dir?
Or do I have to delete or do something else before? :confused2:


*** edit ***
Now I use the version "included" in xbmc skin-section, under 'get more'. Smile

I see the information, but when I click on the little figure for cast information I just get the empty background with no information?

can't reproduce i'm afraid.
i assume you've made sure cast info is available for the movie you're playing?

same here Sad

could either of you do this please:
  • update your svn again
  • restart xbmc
  • skin settings > show debug info
  • play movie/episode
  • bring up the cast info and create a screenshot
