The title says it all. There are a few areas of the Bleazle skin where I don't want the "now playing" window showing (see the TVSeries screenshot below). Is there a way of hiding it? I see that it's "hidden" in a couple of places in the Monochrome skin but I can't work out how it's done :oops:

I can't just use "facadeview.filmstrip" etc because there are screens where this doesn't apply (for example the Details screen in the MyFilms plugin).

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Dave

    Yes,

    you only have to set this line in top of the screen xml from this :

    <allowoverlay>yes</allowoverlay>

    to this :

    <allowoverlay>no</allowoverlay>

    hmm that will help me too :)

    just a question:

    (couse that is also @ the moving pictures / videos / radio / etc....
    and i fixed my skin the way that there is nothing that "overlays" the menu ---
    --- always a field for the overlay is free in dark-essentials )

    if i set overlay to "no" ... will it stop automaticaly or just hide it?

    Do you mean "does it stop the currently playing music/tv etc from playing?" No it doesn't - the music (or whatever is playing) keeps playing you just don't see the overlay in the screens with the "<allowoverlay>no</allowoverlay>" tag

    UPDATE:

    Unfortunately it turns out that it's not quite as easy as just using the <allowoverlay>no</allowoverlay> tags. I did this in the MyVideo Plugin and came across the following problem:

    When viewing TV (or a video) switching from the LiveTV screen to MyVideos (using the remote) caused the currently playing clip to be shown over the information in MyVideos :(

    Luckily the fix was really easy - just position the "video rectangle" and related tags (i.e "Pause", "tv_green_border" etc) off the screen :)

    That doesn't sound like a fix, more like a hack...

    You should probably report it as bug.
