Hi there,

I'm trying to modify a skin and want to add a watched icon to the listcontrol of the episodes, similar to the Titan or streamedMP skins (see example image below, left of "2009-11-05"):

I'm no stranger to modifying skins, but unfortunately I can't seem to figure out how to do this. I thought I could simply copy paste from one of these two skins and adjust from there, but they don't seem to achieve this from within the skinfiles. The .png-files are not referenced in any xml.
Is there some internal logic that does this? How can it be implemented for a different skin? Any help would be highly appreciated.

    Last time I worked on skins was pre-COVID, so little rusty, but if I recall correct you just have to name them correct.

    • tvseries_UnWatched.png (regular)
    • tvseries_Watched.png (regular)
    • tvseries_UnWatchedNA.png (when mediafile is not available)
    • tvseries_WatchedNA.png (when mediafile is not available)

    The MediaPortal skin engine will do the rest automatic.

    That was indeed the missing part, I see the icons now (y). Thanks for the help.

    Hello!!! I use a handy app called catchin' sync to roughly check the AV sync of audio/video on my HTPC/TV.

    I messed around with the sound, and it all worked fine via the playback devices. Weirdly enough I tried to play a video through MP on a whim and it is all working fine. Maybe somehow I "tricked" Windows 10 into realising that the sound does work. As an aside, when I run the sound troubleshooter it continues to complain that the...
