    Ok, shame I like the way the homescreen mimics the size of the plugin windows with it.

    The posters are staying in both TVSeries and Moving Pictures. I don't use Music or any others. Do they hide for you?

    Thanks

    Just a little extra info..



    MePo 1.2.2.0
    Moving Pictures 1.3.0.1344
    TV Series 3.1.3.1888

    AW: Avallonis (An Avalon MOD)

    Hi there!

    First of all: Cul8er, you're kind of like old king Midas: everything you put your fingers on turns to gold! So, thanks a lot for this great mod, I love it!

    I've just one little request: I do not know, if this is related to the skin, to latest mediahandler or MPTVseries, but the latest media on TV series disregards the parental lock. With moving pictures, I just see the latest movies that are free to watch for my kids, but if I turn on latest media on tv series, it might happen, that my 5-year-old - if he get's his hands on the remote (which I cannot always prevent) - "accidentally" watches the latest episode of "Dexter" or "The Walking Dead".



    Greetings

    Do you think it would be possible to have the option of changing the homescreen window like the community mod which enlarges it to the same size as the plugin screens when no bottom info isenabled to show more fanart? maybe in the settings? :)

    I'd also prefer the exit menu to slide in from the top rather than the side as others have mentioned - just so it feels more nature when exiting out etc (Up to enter, left right to select, down to return). Or even if the options were just rotated 90 degrees or something so the direction keys 'felt' as you would expect.

    I also would rather see exiting from submenu items be with an Up press as the top menu item rather than a Left press as others have mentioned.

    Is issue #10 on the issues tracker regarding the slide in info screens when pressing Right on a list menu item inside a plugin? Those slide in animations also feel slower than they were in AValon (Moving Pictures / TV Series etc) - maybe there is a setting I have yet to realise exists?

    Of course these are just personal preferences but I think it would feel more intuitive. Overall having had a play with it, I really like it, it's also nice to finally have weather working correctly! (even if it does show a blinding sun image when its 11pm at night lol! - BBC Weather Mod please!) and it is now my permanent skin :D

    When I am using this skin I have noticed that when I browse the TV seies I have, in list view, I get each of the episodes noted for a given series but no plot synopsis displayed. Next toeach episode in the lsit there is the "i"icon sybolising, I assume, that further information is possible. But that just allows me to change views and aspect ratio etc.

    If I change to another skin, Default Wide for example, the program synopsis is there for each episode.

    Is there something which could be changed to enable this episode synopsis to be shown...?

    Thanks

    Is it just me but in plugin screens, forexample TVSeries, with show bottom info disabled and scrooling through Series in list view..

    The menu overlay containing the list doesn't quite cover the fanart behind it at the very bottom for a couple of pixels? I notice changes in colour right at the bottom of the black menu background, noticebly when the fanart is quite bright?

    I'm guessing this something to do with the fanart reflection but it distracts me :p because I'm anal :) (AValon did this also..)

    AW: Avallonis (An Avalon MOD)

    Ok, I don't know if it is of any help to you, but I tried to add the second progress bar in OnlineVideos to show the progress of buffering. I looked at the OnlineVideos OSD skin file of the DefaultWide skin and the TvOSD skin file of Avalon / Avallonis where the additional progress bars are used for timeshifting. So I ended up with the following change in myonlinevideosOSD.xml:

    Before:
    Code (Text):
    1.         <control>
    2.             <description>Progress Bar</description>
    3.             <type>progress</type>
    4.             <id>105</id>
    5.             <posX>578</posX>
    6.             <posY>906</posY>
    7.             <width>758</width>
    8.             <height>15</height>
    9.             <label>#percentage</label>
    10.             <lefttexture>osd_progress_left.png</lefttexture>
    11.             <midtexture>osd_progress_mid.png</midtexture>
    12.             <righttexture>osd_progress_right.png</righttexture>
    13.             <label>#percentage</label>
    14.         </control>
    After:
    Code (Text):
    1.         <control>
    2.             <description>Progress Bar</description>
    3.             <type>tvprogress</type>
    4.             <id>105</id>
    5.             <posX>578</posX>
    6.             <posY>906</posY>
    7.             <width>758</width>
    8.             <height>15</height>
    9.            
    10.             <toptexture>-</toptexture>
    11.             <TextureOffsetY>0</TextureOffsetY>
    12.             <bottomtexture>-</bottomtexture>
    13.             <texturetick>-</texturetick>
    14.             <lefttexture>osd_progress_left.png</lefttexture>
    15.             <midtexture>-</midtexture>
    16.             <righttexture>-</righttexture>
    17.             <logotexture>-</logotexture>
    18.             <fillbackgroundtexture>-</fillbackgroundtexture>
    19.             <fillbgxoff>-3</fillbgxoff>
    20.             <fillbgyoff>0</fillbgyoff>
    21.             <filltexture1>osd_progress_mid.png</filltexture1>
    22.             <filltexture2>osd_progress_mid.png</filltexture2>
    23.             <filltexture3>osd_progress_mid_orange.png</filltexture3>
    24.             <fillheight>15</fillheight>
    25.             <label>#percentage</label>
    26.             <label1>#percentage</label1>
    27.             <label2>#TV.Record.percent3</label2>
    28.             <startlabel />
    29.             <endlabel />
    30.             <toplabel />
    31.             <font>font10</font>
    32.             <textcolor>ffffffff</textcolor>
    33.         </control>
    There is another progress bar if you pause the stream. Unfortunately I wasn't able to find out where that progess bar comes from (where it is skinned).

    I have 100 TV series to choose from and what I find with this skin is that when I restart MP and go to the TV series it will always go back to the first (alphabetically) on the list. Would it be possible for it to go to the last series played..?

    For example I have all eight series of Shameless, the ninth is just starting. Each time I start MP and the TVSeries plugin I have to scroll all the way down to find it and then when it is shown and then (as we are re-watching them again)when opened we then have to navigate all the way back from series 9 cover to series 1 cover to then open that to reveal each of the episodes.

    IIRC Streamed MP would start the TV Series where it was previously left.

    Another small point is there a way to change the clock from a 24hr format to a 12hr one please..?

    Thanks :)

    I don't recognize this behaviour (returning to the latest watched. Why don't you just switch to Recently Added view or add the shows you're currently watching to Favourites? Having 100 shows and using Show All view makes no sense to me.
