    Hi. I'm new to MediaPortal and I'm having trouble getting the home menu to change to what I want it to be. I have installed X-Factor and the home menu is a simple box on the left of screen rather than any of the pretty ones I've seen in the screenshots. I tried changing the menu in the options but no matter which one I select it doesn't change.



    Can anyone shed some light on what I'm doing wrong?

    Hi there and welcome :)

    Open MP Configuration
    Expand General
    Select Skin
    Ensure that the option "Start with BasicHome" is selected.

    Hi again. Another question.. How do I browse my movies in X-Factor? I go to movies but there's nothing there and I can't seem to find an option to add them?

    Me again :)

    That depends on your setup.
    Using MovingPictures plugin for movies (if not, highly recommended)?
    Or normal MediaPortal video shares/database?

    If you are not sure, you can tell how you saw them in other skin and what that skin is.
