    Hi,

    I have removed 2 items from the list, but now there are just empty spaces instead of them...

    The items are listed for example like this:



    ITEM1 ITEM2 ITEM3
    ITEM4 ITEM5
    ITEM6 ITEM7 ITEM8 ITEM9

    Instead of like this:

    ITEM1 ITEM2 ITEM3 ITEM4
    ITEM5 ITEM6 ITEM7 ITEM8
    ITEM9

    Or like this:
    ITEM1 ITEM2 ITEM3
    ITEM4 ITEM5 ITEM6
    ITEM7 ITEM8 ITEM9


    I saw that the XML file have posX/posY variables, but it a little tricky because each button has a different width and height...
    Is there an easy way to re-organize the icons ?

    Thanks

    Change Remote Mapping

    Hello,

    thanks for the nice tutorial!

    I'm not sure, if it's the right context: Is it possible to change the keyboard mapping for remote control?

    For example the Button of this plugin Blu-Ray / HD-DVD Player with PowerDVD.

    The remote/keyboard mapping is configured in MediaPortal Configuration and not in the skin.

    It is easier to change the four values for each item as described it the first post instead of “moving it”. Moving it requires to change the X, Y and key navigation for each item, which isn’t that easy.

    Maybe you can use https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/black-white-1080p-286/modifications-basichome-48727/ 2 rows as you baseline, and change it according to your preferences

    Hi,

    I made this little python script to generate basichome.xml easily. You can choose between 2 templates : 2 or 3 rows.

    Just put the 3 files in a directory, edit basichomer.py to choose what you want to see in the basic home screen, then launch it. It'll generate a new ready to be used basichome.xml.

    I hope it'll help.

    Many thanks for this wonderful skin.

    Here is a new version which manages navigation parameters: no more empty placeholders.

    Nice change. It is much easier to modify your own Basic Home.
