You need to adjust VideoFullScreen.xml to show you the RSS...
The code for it can be found at the nearly end of Home.xml...
Just search for RSS in Home.xml...

If you have more questions, just ask...

I found the following code for rss:

<control type="group">
<posx>0</posx>
<posy>33r</posy>
<visible>system.getbool(lookandfeel.enablerssfeeds)</visible>
<include>Window_OpenClose_Animation</include>
<control type="rss">
<description>RSS feed</description>
<posx>100</posx>
<posy>0</posy>
<height>30</height>
<width>1145</width>
<font>font12</font>
<urlset>1</urlset>
<textcolor>blue</textcolor>
<titlecolor>blue</titlecolor>
<headlinecolor>white</headlinecolor>
</control>
<control type="image">
<description>RSS background</description>
<posx>1250</posx>
<posy>2</posy>
<width>24</width>
<height>24</height>
<texture>icon-rss.png</texture>
</control>
</control>

Where exactly do i need to place it? I tried different places in videofullscreen.xml document in the 720p folder of confluence. But nothing happends.

Nice, it works! I hope i dont ask to much but can you make it perfect:

- Rss feeds in the bottom of the page (like the original)
- ??.png with a height of 35 for the background of the rss (i make gradient.png later so it looks like a rss bar)
- Weather, date and time also on screen on same place as the original

That would be perfect!

Doesn't matter...this change is not platform specific

Ouh...you might change the rss control with the grphics control below to have it vice versa...

Hi,

This was a lifesaver, but here is a tiny trick quesion. What if I want it to show during specific times? Or every x minutes?

Thanks

Need to check if you can set a visible condition based on playback time or system time
