    Hello,
    Is there a way to extend the menu in the basic home?
    I'd like to have a play disk item within the video menu

    It's a pity, I too would be very happy if there is an Basic-Home-editor for the default skin, because i find the skin really great.
    It would be enough, if the editor is able to configure the menus- and submenus-Links.
    Is an editor planned for the future?

    Hi.
    Just changing the hyperlinks and the labels is no big deal. Should be possible to nearly everyone with a little PC knowledge. Wiki is a good way to start. Grab yourself Notepad and a copy!!!!!! of basichome.xml and there you go.

    Hello,
    I tried to edit the menus- and submenus-Links. But without success. There are some places where I may edit. But I don't know, which of them I may edit. Also are there methods, which I don't know.
    Is there an manual or a tutorial, how I can edit a basic-home-menu.
    Ciao
    Thomas
