    Hey ltfearme,

    i have a question, is there a way that i can have more then 3 trending shows / movies showen in the basic home screen ?? I have some free space :) With latest series / movies it works fine when i gave the range (width) more space.

    Look at second screen for example...

    OK, i have it. It works fine now, i have an older skin.settings in my theme folder. Now it works great...

    Is there a way that i can have the heart or the rating on the dashboard on homescreen to ? The screen is only a sample for better understanding my quest.

    Take look at common properties in the skin designers guide.
    I watched, tried to use # Trakt.Show.Tv bId and # Trakt.Movie.ImdbId but these properties can have values at the same time. And when the first transition, the facade of control, they are empty.
    I have the same layouts are necessary, to know the current element.
    Something like: #Trakt.Dashboard.Current... with properties .IMDBID, TMDBID, like: #Trakt.Dashboard.Current.IMDBID

    Im not sure what you're asking @ajs. If you want the selected properties i.e. when the user selects a particular movie or show then use the following properties to get their respective ID:
    If you want a static property then use the index properties e.g. this will give you the first trending item on the facade
