Ahhh, any chance you could like me to the older one or send it me? Or even send me the paramaters and i'll try to code them in myself.
Would i not get problems later on when it updates the listings though?
Forgot to say aswell:

I've got a slight problem which i've experinced with a few skins.
When i am in the TV Guide menu, the box which displays the current TV Chan is over the listings and not in the bottom left hand corner where it is in other skins.
Obviously this doesn't allow me to see the...
You know, i didn't... then about 2 mins after posting i realised what i had done.
Now i've got another problem though, the site im getting listings from comes up as '0' days even though i set 14, apprently it has been fixed... just trying to find the SVN for it now.
I've been waiting for this for a long long time :D
Works so well! I'm going to keep my Artisan case now, was considering getting another Antec as the display was annoying me that it wasn't work 100%.
Very good work, you've made me and i'm sure many others very very happy...

I have just installed MP 0.2.3 RC1, i am using the MCEDisplay plugin with my Elonex Artisan Deluxe chassis which has a front LED Display.
No problems yet, seems to work just as well as it did with MP 0.2.2
May i suggest looking at an Intel DG965OT Media Board. We have two of these in outr house, both running Core 2 Duo CPU's and MSI Geforce 7300GS with HDMI out. They are excellent boards with loads of features, i have found it to be the best board i have used for my HTPC.
I was wondering if someone could help me. I have installed this plugin but am having some problems.
everytime i load MP it just crashes and closes.
I get this in the error log:

Hi, sorry for the late reply. Yes i meant the MCE compatible display plugin, sorry about that, was not thinking when i posted.
It does have a few issues, but it does sort of work. Was the best i could find so it is all i used.
My dad has just bought an Elonex Artisan LX barebone system from a well known UK online store. It was £120 and come with: case, psu and lga775 motherboard.
The case has a front LED display, multiple ammounts of controls, a built in RF antenna and built in IR Receiver. It uses a heatpipe...
I understand that watercooling does still require the use of fans, i have watercooled several of my gaming rigs. But one or two quiet 120mm fans on the radiator is alot less noise that most heatsink and fans, given that i have minimal space inside the case, i can't house something like a...
I have now finished my HTPC and am very happy with it except it makes a bit too much noise.
I have a Thermaltake Orb cooler which is supposed to be 17db but it is more around 30db.
What other ways can i make my HTPC silence? Would it be a good idea to watercool the system, providing...
I just seen a video on YouTube for Gigabyte I-Ram. It has really blown me away for its very fast loading times of windows.
I am considering buying one for my HTPC to run Windows XP and MP on it. Has anyone thought of this before or know any more info? Would i find that i would get...
I just tried to use the NVIDIA PureVideo Decoder and still had no luck at all.
The error log still reads this:
2007-02-08 01:16:50.968750 [ERROR][MPMain]: PlaylistPlayer: *** unable to play - E:\Video Files\Films\dmd-illusionist.avi - skipping track!
I have changed the DirectX Settings but still it does not play any video files. I have been playing around with the decoder settings but still have had no luck.
Any other ideas?
Here is what the log reads:
