    Whenever we find genre/category images that are really cool we can add them to Titan. But to be honest i havent seen any real good ones.

    Yeah... to be honest after playing around with these images and this skin I don't think it fits with the overall theme.
    If you did find some good styled images you would need to have a good template to go with it as there are basically an unlimited set of images needed to go with custom categories.

    I'll share my mod, hope you like it.
    I've placed the list on the right, so there is more room for fanart and made it a little smaller so the time and date is still visable.
    Just place the 3 xml files in your skin map and add category images (with the same name as the category)to the map Media/Categories.
    Movingpictures.xml and movingpictures.facade.xml are modified, the other xml file is for the category image, where you can chance the position.

    Maybe someone with time can have a dig around on the xbmc forums, there might be a set that fits well with titan

    If you can keep this up and running then I'm ready to add the theme back. But I do not see much difference with my theme in appearance.

    I'm using MP1 Ukraine ( as a side issue Trend antivirus says later versions are ransomwear ) and I've used MP for many years. Have I missed something all this time? Is there a way of marking recordings as favourites, and an easy way to display them? Thank you

    If anyone ever experiences the above, I found a fix. Removing and reinstalling MP-TVSeries fixed it. It must have gotten corrupted during the reinstall of MP. I also had to do the same with TRAKT which had some issues too that were not apparent at the time. All is well once again. :cool:

    @CyberSimian As I have just posted in the MP2 subforum I will stay with MP1 for the time being. Many thanks for all your very informative and detailed responses. I will take your advice and monitor the Scheduled recordings list for the discrepancies you have described. Cheers.
