    Hi @ge2301

    First of all, great work on the WMC Skin and especially bringing the dark theme along, i love it :)

    I was wondering if it's possible to add more information to the EPG screen - The XML i use has some information included that would be really useful to have when browsing through the full guide - mainly the category tag, HDTV tag <quality>HDTV</quality> and the Repeat tag (<previously-shown/>) UK television is full of repeats and the repeat tag is then especially useful when the series and episode number is not provided in the epg data. Some programmes have these indicators in the program description too, but as they are in block brackets like [HD] i guess mediaportal ignores things inside square brackets as they never show up?

    Could these be incorporated into the synopsis area at the bottom of the EPG screen? Maybe something like:

    Oxford Street Revealed 1.7 (Documentary, HD, Repeat)
    Observational documentary series following the people who keep Oxford Street running. The undercover police team crack down on distraction thieves trying a new trick, a shoulder roll. At Debenhams, a French make-up line launches, with live body painting in the shop&apos;s windows. Plus a look at Oxford Street from above with a specialist aerial photographer.

    Run All Night (Film, 2015, HD)
    A mob enforcer is forced into action when his estranged son becomes the target of a hit. Liam Neeson, Joel Kinnaman, Ed Harris



    Here's a sample of the EPG XML - there's also a lot more info provided like audio qulity, acting and directing credits, release year etc but there's only so much space for info on the guide and the extra information isn't always important!

    Code:
    </programme>
      <programme start="20170215114500 +0000" stop="20170215121500 +0000" channel="UK_Digi_36215">
        <title>Oxford Street Revealed</title>

    On skin side I'm just referring to parameters from the SlimTVModel, meaning the reading of the xml epg data is something out of my knowledge.
    @morpheus_xx might be able to say, if the model can be easly extended or if there is already a category parameter, that I'm not yet aware of. The category parameter could be also helpful to support different background colors in future as also supported in WMC. But last point is something, that will surely not happen in early future.

    Ah, fair enough, i was hoping it was just a simple line of code needed like adding the series / episode number and name etc was.

    Thank you for your reply :)

    Hi,
    I like the WMC-Skin. I most like, that I can read the epg from 3 meters! Unfortunalety I can´t read the epg using BlueVision. WMC has a nice and clean GUI.

    Is it possible to show the age rating (age classification of movies for children) for example below the epg (detail info of the selected item) next to the logo (see arrow)?
    epg.png


    The age rating should only be visible if the user has activated this in settings > display/representation > skin > skin-settings > age recommandation (I´m not sure about my translation).

    This feature were helpfull for the selection of films for my children.

    Thanx

    Theoretically it can be shown, but the problem is, that the TV model offers only parameters already shown. Age rating, genre etc. are not available for me as designer. you can make a feature request in the right section.

    Ahh, thanx. But as I know TVE3 (and the TV model, too?) won´t be changed, because of the development ot TVE3.5.

    Could you please take a look at my post of Bug and Problem Reports #37. I´m not sure, if this is a bug or feature quest. Thanx a lot.

    You're right, there is a general freeze for TVE3. But I mean the model, that is the interface between TVE and MP2, here are differences.
