Hi

I have unzipped the "EPG 7 11 15 LINE BLUE BACKGROUND.rar" file into the "C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\skin\Titan\Themes\" directory.

Next, I used MediaPortal Config to select EPG 7 11 15 LINE BLUE BACKGROUND and now MediaPortal is using it.

I cannot find out how to change the number of rows in the MediaPortal EPG as it is still displaying 7.

Searching the MediaPortal forum failed to turn up anything but maybe my search string was not correct.


How do I change the number of rows in the MediaPortal EPG?


Thanks


Paul

I managed to solve this myself and as I have being using MediaPortal 1.3 beta for only 2 weeks I will detail what I had to do for others new to this wonderful program.

What I eventually stumbled across in the Wiki is that in MediaPortal I need to press the 'H' key to go to the Basic screen and then select Settings > GUI > Skin and change TV Guide Rows from the default of 7.

It was really easy in the end.

Thanks for this - I've been trying to work out how to do it ever since I installed 1.3 beta (about 4 hours ago) :)

    Not to sure if you are using the rar I assembled.

    If you are and you see some problems with the upcoming releases of MP 1.3 RC then you will need to delete these two files from the theme

    common.overlay.xml and fonts.xml

    I have seen some oddities with font size to the displayed time in TITAN with these two files.

    Just a heads up.

    Ok, thanks.
    I was using your rar to get 15 lines, but the missus decided she preferred 11 in the end anyway, so I'll revert to the standard titan skin now I know how to change the lines on it.
    Cheers.

    Great thanks for that, I've changed to BlueVision. Alt-Enter isn't the most obvious way of toggling between fullscreen and windowed, an onscreen button would be useful esp for using with remote control.

    Hi. As requested here are my theme files. The zip files contains a folder that has to go into "c:\Program Files (x86)\Team MediaPortal\MP2-Client\Plugins\BlueVision\Skin\BlueVision\themes\", if you didn't changed the MP2 path. The 2.1.x version is "blind from memory" so it probably did not work perfect or even didn't work at all...

    You probably don't need to do that unless you're using the CI slot.
