How to disable TV in Basic Home Screen (1 Viewer)

Is there a way to disable TV Section in the home basic menu? I want to use an Asus EeeBox standalone without TV functionality. Or is the only way to disable TV in the configurator and to deselect "Start with basic home screen"? What if i press my green button then?

btw. is there somebody who knows how to operate the skin editor alpha4?

    Hi chribe :)

    Unfortunately I am not very familiar with this skin, but I suspect that your only option will be to edit the xml code. This can get a bit complicated if you are not familiar with it.
    Some skins do offer a basichome menu editor, but I cannot recall seeing such for xface.

    If you just remove it, there might be some navigation issues which may require a lot of work to fix.
    Do you use the TVSeries plugin? It might be relatively easy to change the TV menu item to open something else like TVSeries.
