v17 Random tv show set up
#1
Hi peeps,

ive had a good look round but couldnt find anything.

what im looking for on the Estuary skin is to have random tv shows (local) show up on the home window like the movies.

ive had a good look round but couldnt find it.

is there a setting im not finding or does a script have to be created?

Hi TOG,

thanks for the reply.

ive had a good look round and I cant find the home.xml file.

Ive double checked and its definitely not in userdata or any of the sub folders within. can you elaborate

I also couldnt find variables.xml either. did you want me to create a .xml file?

fyi, when looking at other forums when people couldnt find home.xml. people seemed to say that it was in the addon skin area.

my skin.estuary folder only has a setting.xml and nothing in the main user data folder
