    Wow...looks really nice catavolt. Can't wait

    Further to this, I'd love to release a myVoice theme that would complement this, but I'm unsure of the copyright. The sounds are easily found on google. Any thoughts? (sorry if I'm hijacking, but you've got me pumped from your description :) )

    Thanks Catavolt, your the best

    My big TV room is starting to look more Star Trekkie every day.
    Nice to have the LCARS skin on the big screen, and next to it on the wall one of the big banners from the Las Vegas convention signed by 24 of the actors from TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY and ENT.

    I'm a Trekkie - (MP devs/members - are you?)


    Later in the day.

    And now the Bugs update after playing with this skin. And I must admit, this version of LCARS with the new graphics and changing pictures looks fantastic.

    - DVD in main menu has no display picture when selected
    - Play DVD (full screen) nothing there just: missing or invalid ..............\LCARS Wide\Dialogselect2.xml
    -TV (TVE3) no background picture
    -TV (TVE3) TV ON button different sized than other buttons
    -TV (TVE3) TV show name scrolls at 2 different locations above the tv display window.

    Anyway keep up the good work

    TV only works in full screen on my PC, when I enter MyTV I just see a black box where TV is supposed to be (I do get audio). I also don't get TV picture on the Home screen when time-shift is enabled, just audio :( . I use the internal TV engine and I have enabled DX exclusive mode (in case that matters).

    Hi igalan,

    to be honest I have no idea why you have this trouble with this skin. Here everything works fine. Maybe it is the DX exclusive mode? I never tested this.

    Sorry that I can´t help you at the moment.

    I have tested it some more and this only happens when timeshift is enabled. If I go to MyTV and disable timeshift, TV picture is there, if I enable timeshift all I get is a black box :( . This only happens with your skin, not with BlueTwo (wide or regular). It's weird.

    Hi igalan,

    Yes it´s more than weird - I just encountered one line in MYTVHOME.XML causing this error (allowing overlays was set to "yes", but must be set to "no")

    Por favor, disculpe :oops:

    Here you find the complete updated bugfixes.

    Best Regards
