    I love this skin because of its simplicity and everything I've tried seems to work. I am having one problem. I have tried to activate ExtraMenu. I thought it would just a matter of assigning a button "hyperlink" to "88884" in BasicHome.xml but nothing happens other than the selection returning to Button 1 when pressed. I do have an ExtraMenu.xml and its ID is 88884 so the hyperlink seems right.

    Any clues to where I have gone wrong?

    Here's my BasicHome.xml button link:

    <control>
    <description>11 - Button</description>
    <type>button</type>
    <id>12</id>
    <posX>680</posX>
    <posY>660</posY>
    <width>300</width>
    <height>180</height>
    <textureFocus>basichome_focus.png</textureFocus>
    <textureNoFocus/>
    <hyperlink>88884</hyperlink>
    <label/>
    <onleft>11</onleft>
    <onright>13</onright>
    <onup>8</onup>
    <ondown>99</ondown>
    </control>
    <control>
    <description>11 - Icon</description>
    <type>image</type>
    <id>1</id>
    <posX>765</posX>
    <posY>670</posY>
    <width>130</width>
    <height>130</height>
    <texture>basichome_extramenu.png</texture>
    </control>
    <control>
    <description>11 - Text</description>
    <type>label</type>
    <id>1</id>
    <posX>680</posX>
    <posY>800</posY>
    <width>300</width>
    <height>40</height>
    <label>More....</label>
    <align>center</align>
    </control>
    <control>
    <description>11 - Image</description>
    <type>image</type>
    <id>1</id>
    <posX>1300</posX>
    <posY>260</posY>
    <width>580</width>
    <height>580</height>
    <texture>hover_extra menu.png</texture>
    <animation effect="fade" time="1000">VisibleChange</animation>
    <visible>Control.HasFocus(12)</visible>
    </control>
    <control>

    You also need the extra menu plugin and then enable it in the plugins section I think!

    Now that is helpful. I wondered if that might be the case but I've manually scanned all the posted plugins and searched extramenu, extra menu, and extramenu.xml, but can't find anything.

    Would you mind pointing me to the plugin download link, post it, or PM it to me.

    Again thanks.

    Place the attached two dlls in the C:\Program Files\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\plugins\Windows folder.

    The two dlls contains all four menus (watch, listen, game and other).

    Activate the plugins in MediaPortal Configuration (Right-click enable).
