for example, list view in moving pictures would be "moving pictures views xml" under the comment heading for :: list view ::
Thanks for the responses.
I see no control for list colors in moving pictures views xml or TVSeries.views.xml. I did finally find in references.xml under >default listcontrol< the color settings that fixed it for me.

Sorry, I can't help you much cause I didn't reverse the colors, I only changed the watched color to something I can see better (red).

Here is what I did change:
Under the section:
<description>default listcontrol</description>
I changed:
<playedColor>FFC80909</playedColor>
Which changed my watched files from white to red.

hope that helps a litte.

okay I swapped them around and it appears to be working in tv series by changing the following Under the section:
<description>default listcontrol</description>


<shadedColor>FF85CFFF</shadedColor>
<selectedColor>FF85CFFF</selectedColor>
<textcolor>ffffffff</textcolor>
<textcolor2>ffffffff</textcolor2>
<textcolor3>ffffffff</textcolor3>
<colordiffuse>FF85CFFF</colordiffuse>
<playedColor>FF85CFFF</playedColor>

+1 to the colour swap.

From a usability / consistancy point of view (totally not trying to sound wanky) The white / brightest colour is active /available and darker items are not.
It's like grey'ing out items that are not accessable. The Home screen using white as the Active colour for the option you are on.

I've got to give a big "THANKS"! from my tired old eyes:cool:

I changed the color of the "watched recordings" in DefaultWide the same way.

Path:
...\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\skin\DefaultWide

File:
common.facade.recordings.xml

Section:
<description>listcontrol</description> and <description>album view listcontrol</description>

Values:
<playedColor>ffFF2E1F</playedColor>
<playedColor2>ffFF2E1F</playedColor2>

    Can someone upload the changed files? It would be nice to have a set of overhauled files here, no need for more people to edit their files.
