    Hi cul8er, forgot to mention the myshowtime plugin. I think this skin should support it sooner or later.

    Another question: will there be a fanart oriented view for mytvseries? Because the 2.2 version allows to select different views and I see is not currently possible with xfactor.

    Thanks

    I Cul8er

    It works, and it look a lot better than mine.
    BUT, always a but....

    Now Playing window on eks. basic home will not show the prewiew fir ip streaming
    What overlay du you use for that?

    common.overlay.xml will show picture, so I guess you could steale some code from that file :)



    And last, when showing "now playing" on the dripper site, then it dosent cover the whole still img.
    Could you make it cover that, when tv is playing?

    Screenshot is showing "now plaing tv" course it wont show ip streaming

    Hi providers,

    Thank you for testing. What common.overlay.xml do you mean? The one from x-factor? In what module using common.overlay.xml do you see picture?

    best regards

    Hi Cul8er,
    Really love the skin, especially the very simple and intuitive basic home editor. Been waiting for a long time for a skin with such a simple approach, that allows everything from basic home. :D

    Still three things that I am missing:

    The TopBar
    I use it a lot especially for minimizing MP for maintenance purposes.

    Backdrops Folder Editing
    It would be great if the basic home editor included an option to set the backdrop folder for each menu option (both main and sub menus). I manually modified the xml to make the backdrops folders of TV Series and Moving Pictures as the FanArt folders of the plugins. It would have been great if this was inherent in the editor to save us from messing with the xml itself.

    FanArt view mode for TV-Series
    I suppose this is in progress... It is the most impressive mode for this plugin in my opinion.

    Best regards and keep on the good work
