    Radio Time for Avallanche ver 1.0



    Copy and paste into your "C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\skin\Avallonis\Themes\Avallanche" folder.

    Tested on Windows 7 / Radio Time ver 0.7.0.1

    @2BitSculptor,

    The "mini guide" xml seems to be redundant and no longer used...or have I missed something?

    NOTE: This plugin could do with being totally re-designed if anyone is up for the challenge.

    I didn't use it, I didn't know what to do with it, it was there, so it was packed with everything else... I only messed with the main and NowPlaying screens.

    That makes two of us. :)

    IMO, I think it would be better to completely re-design the skin from scratch rather than trying to "reverse engineer" the existing files......it would probably be quicker and easier to start from fresh.

    The files work but are far from ideal...personally, I don't think the "icons" view works for this as there are too many blank entries and the files seem to be overly complicated for what they need to achieve...they made my head ache. :(

    I didn't deal with the other views ... I only use list. I just wanted to get the NowPlaying screen to look more Avallonis style.

    Agreed...I think list view is the only one that is needed and really works with it.

    I can't run the Avalanche theme with the supplied fonts in the zip (manually copied to the fonts folder) MP crashes.

    Good Morning :) - I made same screenshots of parts which I think might need some adjustments:

    home weather.JPG as you see . I wasn't able to change the fontcolour of teh conditions - I changed every couour to teh grey you see but these remain white

    movie home.JPG when wathcing a movie the time is shifted to the right - tis only happens at teh home screen

    also - when the tv title is longer it overlaps: Home.JPG


    Moving Pictures.JPG the postion of the window overlaps with the infopane - but to be homnest no idea what to do about it as tere is no space to put this

    info.JPG The info pane - as said vefore - uses much space. Don't know but is it possible to set the background so it's stating from 0 to full from top to bottom? I'm not great of an artist but something like this: info1.png and putting additional info like Soundformat (DD, AC3, ...) and resololution maybe (HD, HD Ready, ...) and signal strenght there?

    I'll try and help you with some of these one at a time......

    Remove the value Style="RealWhiteColor"...... Screenshot_1.png ......and insert "<textcolor>???</textcolor> as per other entries replacing ??? with your choice of colour.[DOUBLEPOST=1361964266][/DOUBLEPOST]
    I know the reason for this...in other windows there is a "spectrum" image...... Screenshot_2.png ......but this doesn't appear on the home screen so the xml entry needs to be modified to include the "spectrum" image on the home screen.[DOUBLEPOST=1361965061][/DOUBLEPOST]
    Try this...I've moved the scheduled recordings entries to the right.

    Agreed...this overlaps other items too like some of the hidden menus in some views...not sure what can be done about this.[DOUBLEPOST=1361966061][/DOUBLEPOST]

    I think this is a @sweborn mod...so maybe he can help you out with this.
