Hi,

First things first: great skin!!! :D

Now: am I the only one missing the "close MediaPortal", "shut down Windows" or "restart Windows" buttons?
Or is it just me not being able to find them??? :confused:

Cheers!

Ooops! Thanks!

I couldn't find it because I have the topbar disabled! I don't like the behaviour of topbar when using only remote, though it's fine for the ones using a mouse... Anyway, it's not skin-related!

For future releases, any chance of getting these buttons in home and/or basichome, without the need for the topbar?

Regards,

    that's a skin issue,
    in various skins this is already implemented, e.g. Streamed MP in basic home etc.

    it's hardly an issue, more like skin decision..

    aj decided not to add those buttons in basichome at beginning.. there is space for them so we could probably do a basichome mod with those included..

    That would be great, you've got my vote to include it in next version!

    In the meantime, could a basichome item be mapped to launch the shutdown menu? Maybe it's easier...

    Take care and keep it up!

    yup, it sure can.. this is how the basichome item should look like:

    Code:
    <control>
    <description>8 - Button</description>
    <type>button</type>
    <id>9</id>
    <posX>940</posX>
    <posY>580</posY>
    <width>300</width>
    <height>180</height>
    <textureFocus>shutdown.png</textureFocus>
    <textureNoFocus>shutdown1.png</textureNoFocus>
    <action>99</action>
    <label></label>
    <onleft>8</onleft>
    <onup>5</onup>
    </control>
    <control>
    <description>8 - Icon</description>
    <type>image</type>
    <id>1</id>
    <posX>1025</posX>
    <posY>590</posY>
    <width>130</width>
    <height>130</height>
    <texture>shutdown1.jpeg</texture>
    </control>
    <control>
    <description>8 - Text</description>
    <type>label</type>
    <id>1</id>
    <posX>940</posX>
    <posY>720</posY>
    <width>300</width>
    <height>40</height>
    <label>Shutdown</label>
    <align>center</align>
    </control>
    <control>
    <description>8 - Image</description>
    <type>image</type>
    <id>1</id>
    <posX>1300</posX>
    <posY>260</posY>
    <width>580</width>
    <height>580</height>
    <texture>shutdown1.png</texture>
    <animation effect="fade" time="1000">VisibleChange</animation>
    <visible>Control.HasFocus(9)</visible>
    </control>

    you'll just need to get graphics for menu (130x130px png) and hover (580x580px png) and replace the <texture> tags..

    That's great!!! Thanks a lot!!!

    Just one more thing: to add "close MP" (close app) functionality, we're going to need another button, right? It'd be great to have it together in the same "shutdown" menu, but we can leave that for the future, it's too much for a quick fix!

    Take care!

    There are two TV Server settings that may be relevant here: Maximum free cards to try for recording (see this page in the Wiki). Maximum free cards to try for timeshifting (see this page in the Wiki). The default for these settings is 0, which means "try all tuners". I originally had mine set that way, but I have come to the...
