Thanks for the info and sorry for the late reply. Check out the Streamed MP forum to see images of what i have been working on. 4. I have images for years view. Is there a default place for them? 5. My idea for this was to have a button for a new music tag such as #AlbumInfo.Years so the user can directly go to the appropriate year. Seems a bit complex to do at this stage. So will leave it out of the skin files. A few more question for you; 1. The number of channels for an mp3 doesnt seem to display correctly. For some reason most of my mp3's pick up as 1 channel. Just to be sure i checked the database and most are listed as 1 channel. Checking the file with media info shows two channel. 2. Having some issues with the star rating. Not sure if its my code. If the rating is 0 in the data base it always shows up as 1 in the skin. <control> <id>0</id> <description>Track Star Rating</description> <type>imagelist</type> <visible>[facadeview.list|facadeview.album]+string.equals(#itemtype,#(L(1052)))+!string.equals(#rating,0)</visible> <posX>395</posX> <posY>303</posY> <textureWidth>24</textureWidth> <textureHeight>24</textureHeight> <percentage>#rating</percentage> <imagesToDraw>5</imagesToDraw> <orientation>HORIZONTAL</orientation> <align>LEFT</align> <subitems> <subitem>white-star-outline.png</subitem> <subitem>white-star-filled.png</subitem> </subitems> <animation delay="0" time="250" effect="fade">WindowClose</animation> </control> 3. Can you have too many lines of code in the *.xml that it will impact performance. 4. Can you suggest what i should be doing with skin design so it will not impact performance. My concern is i have a over powered HTPC. I dont really have anyway to test the skin on a slower machine.
