    Maybe me? :D I'll have a look when I get a chance

    It's probably just a problem with my crappy Vista test setup...



    I thought that might be the case but the red wine I'm drinking made me forget to suggest that :D

    Placing feedback is nothing, thanks to you for all the time you put into this stuff!!!! :D

    also applies to My Videos folders because the same font is used there.


    Bug 1)
    - open context menu anywhere
    - use fast scrolling or hold up/down key pressed to move fast through the item list
    -> items visited for small fraction of time remain stuck at dark part of the highlight animation

    You can essentially darken the whole list this way. Make sure items always return to unfocused state.


    Bug 2) (seems Fanarthandler related, also happens in Maya)
    This is a toughie to report, because jameson_uk already sent me a file with a fix for listening to webstreams in music section, which will be included in next RC. Webstream artist information was not transferred into "Now Playing" screen.

    But here is what happens:
    - When listening to webstreams in music section, next artist and track might not be locally available as fanart
    - Fanarthandler starts scraping (Backdrop displays progress percentage)
    - If Fanarthandler does not find fanart, might be due to net loss or artist not available, it goes to sleep and does not work for the whole music section from this point on, whether webstream or artist with images which are already there. Only restart of MP helps.

    Perhaps someone might be able to reproduce it by moving new mp3s into a music folder on the fly where the artist is not available online.

    Suggestion 1) Music Now Playing screen has faded grey leftover to the right, would remove it.

    Suggestion 2) Shorten lists at bottom right by two or three elements, to make room for the planned media logos (think the idea raises overall quality, since your logos look great)

    Suggestion 3) I colored the media logos in movies and series detail views like the ones in your video OSD. Looks better contrastwise imo.

    Suggestion 4) Align media logos in video OSD with box for Audio, Video, Bookmarks, Subtitles above.

    Suggestion 5) List background contrast (looks great!) seems to be different throughout the different areas, try to streamline.

    A big thanks as always.

    Forgot to mention that after the installer of 0.5.0.0 is finished there is a reported access violation to a .mpe2 file in the all users\appdata\...\installer\v2\...\0.5.0.0\ folder

    Re: ScreenSaver Setup

    :D

    I will try when I have time. But if I understand correctly, this is a manual screensaver? So it won't kick in after x minutes?

    While playing fullscreen video, volume OSD is visible.
    Other places (like in menus) it is not visible. Same as in DefaultWide.
    So it looks in working condition to me :)

    Yeah, no volume OSD when playing full screen movies, tv or videos. Others indicate its working for them, so must be something on my end. I'll try reinstalling the skin and see what happens.

    Any thoughts on changing watched/unwatched colors I asked about earlier?

    :D

    Hi sanderson,

    Yes, I have a version with the color a bit different. Not 100% sure it look ok but I'll keep at it. So next version will have changed colors. Thanks for your feedback.

    best regards

    Re: ScreenSaver Setup

    It will start automatically. I added the button to my current setup because sometimes I wanted to be able to start the screensaver manually, but I also have it set to start automatically (after 10minutes or something like that).

    AW: Backdrop - Skin (RELEASED!!!)

    Hi!

    I like your skin very much, but there is an issue with the TV-mini-guide. Sometimes, when it pops up, it doesn't show the channel, which is actually running (and therefore the "selection focus" is also missing). Then I have to press "up" once or twice, so that the bar appears. Just take a look at the attached screenshots. First one was taken right after calling up the mini-guide, the second after pressing "up".
    Oh, and: It would be nice, if there was an option (just like in X-Factor) to select a bigger mini-guide with more channels to display. Perhaps you could just "import" this option from XFactor?!

    Greetings
