    Hi there,

    I have had this little glitch with StreamedMP for a while, but is is so minor that I have never reported it. But since everything on my HTPCs seem to be working perfectly, I thought I would ask (I am sure I will fiddle with the HTPCs tomorrow (to get a feature I will never use) and break them - don't worry).

    When I am on the home screen, part of the screen (the RSS Logo in the very bottom left corner of the screen) is missing. This is the same on both of my systems.

    I have attached an annotated picture so you can see what I mean.

    Thanks

    hi Robbo

    This is the same for the default skin as well, so not sure if skin or infoservice problem, personally never used anyway except for testing a long while ago.

    I presume that you mean you turn off the RSS Ticker and don't have anything at the bottom of the screen? I suppose that is always an option.

    Thanks

    Hi, the logo is there - the BBC News logo on the white bar.

    This is by design, the RSS white bar has the reverse curve and sits in from the left hand edge - I grant you it looks better when the bar is more centered in the screen.


    thx

    I am still a little confused (it doesn't take much!).

    Is it possible to edit one of the .png files so that the background jpeg does not show through the curvy square area in the bottom left? To me it just looks like some of the image is missing from the display! I Presume I could find the appropriate .png file and edit it to be the same colour all the way across as a pure rectangle?

    Thanks

    <wrapString> :: </wrapString>
    <animation effect="slide" end="0,300" time=" 250" acceleration=" -0.1" reversible="false">windowclose</animation>
    </control>

    <id>99004</id>
    <posX>-60</posX>
    <posY>696</posY>
    <width>1340</width>
    <height>60</height>
    <texture>vmenu_submenu.png</texture>
    <animation effect="slide" end="0,300" time=" 250" acceleration=" -0.1" reversible="false">windowclose</animation>
    </control>
    <control>

    <height>24</height>
    <posY>697</posY>
    <posX>10</posX>
    <texture>InfoService\defaultFeedRSS.png</texture>
    <visible>plugin.isenabled(InfoService)</visible>
    <animation effect="slide" end="0,300" time=" 250" acceleration=" -0.1" reversible="false">windowclose</animation>
    </control>
    <control>
    <description>RSS Items</description>
    <type>fadelabel</type>
    <id>1</id>
    <width>1280</width>
    <height>50</height>
    <posY>695</posY>
    <posX>40</posX>
    <font>mediastream12</font>
    <textcolor>ff000000</textcolor>
    <label>#infoservice.feed.titles</label>
    <wrapString> :: </wrapString>
    <animation effect="slide" end="0,300" time=" 250" acceleration=" -0.1" reversible="false">windowclose</animation>
    </control>

    You will need to maske these changes this everytime you generate a new basichome as they will get over written.

    It will now look like the attached screenshot.

    thx

    That is exactly what I was talking about.

    Thanks

    (I am feeling a little bit picky now)

    I have just tested it, and it is perfect. Thanks again. I must now stop fiddling!
