    Hello @powermarcel10 ,



    It quite often happens that I run MP a while only in basichome menu - you know, having guests, switching on MP, but then making conversation and chatting about this and that. This sometimes leads to a quite interesting situation: the "backdrop slideshow" (i.e. the changing movie/tv series backdrops in basichome menu) emerges discussions about movies or even a kind of a "movie quiz" (which backdrop is this?). So recently I thought about another cool feature of Titanius: I would love to see the whole basichome menu panel "fading out" after e.g. 30-40 seconds and just keeping the backdrop with weather and RSS feed on the screen (something like a backdrop screensaver feature). Then, after the first key press the menu would fade in again. Would it be possible to implement such a feature or is the .xml-structure too static for something like this?
