    FH 4.0.3.338
    Holidays 1.0.0.17

    I added a birthday and changed the FanartHandler.xml to HolidayShowAllDay yes so I can make sure it works.
    Am I missing a setting?

    Edit: Added logs. Let me know what else you need.

    HolidayShowAllDay yes
    If today is a holiday, then his Fanart will be shown all day, not for a certain period and then stop. In my opinion this is how it works. The display of the holiday depends on the Skin.

    I added todays date as a birthday and see no background of icon.
    Using Titan skin and trying both default and with MEPO theme.

    Nothing works. In fact with MEPO theme, I see no images for at all besides the default background.

    You need to enable the log mode - Debugging, there is little information in these logs, and there is not a single error. Everything is working as normal.

    Was the file edited while the Media Portal was not running? Changes are not picked up on the fly.

    It seems to me that in the Skin settings in the Media Portal you need to select FanartHandler.

    Debug enabled and new logs attached.

    Yes, Media Portal was not running. I cannot find the setting in the GUI so I manually edited FanartHandler.xml for HolidayShow, HolidayShowAllDay and HolidayEaster. Also, FanartHandler.Holidays.Custom.xml.

    I have now tried editing those two files with fanart handler open and then with Media Portal open but it still does not work.

    Already had FanartHandler as the selected Background in skin settings.

    Maybe I am missing a required plugin?
    Not running anything like MePoTools.
    Testing with Titan skin with default as well as ajs.MePo.Theme.for.Titan.mpe1

    In log i see:
    Code:
    Fanart Handler Holidays folder: C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\Thumbs\Skin FanArt\UserDef\Holidays\
    Fanart Handler Holidays (Icon) folder: Theme|Skin|Thumb: \Media\Logos\Holidays\
    Holiday: [x][x] Fanart, [x] All Day, Show: 0min Country: EN Language: EN Easter: Pesach
    Active Window: 35 Refresh: [x] -> Window: [x] Overlay: [ ] Allow: [x]
     --- [x] [x] Play, [ ] Player, [ ] [ ] Selected, [x] Random, [x] Random Latests, [x] Weather, [x] Holiday
    RefreshHolidayProperties: The added or subtracted value results in an un-representable DateTime.
    Parameter name: value
    Here's the problem: The added or subtracted value results in an un-representable DateTime.
    The DateTime Structure has a Minimum value of 1/1/0001 and a maximum value of 12/31/9999
    The code in your loop is attempting to add a number of days that is making today go outside of this range.
    I don't think it's a bug in the source code (but I don't rule it out), more like the quality of the source data, you can send me your files:
    FanartHandler.Holidays.xml
    FanartHandler.Holidays.Custom.xml

    I did see that and had found an issue with the day and month in my Holidays.Custom, but fix it a couple of days ago (I think).

    Missing < in <Month>9/Month> :)

    If anyone ever experiences the above, I found a fix. Removing and reinstalling MP-TVSeries fixed it. It must have gotten corrupted during the reinstall of MP. I also had to do the same with TRAKT which had some issues too that were not apparent at the time. All is well once again. :cool:

    You are right, the one on the repository is correct, not sure how I ended up with a different version. See attached the incorrect version I ended up with.
