    I've been trying to add Mediastream's myhome.xml to StreamedMP (i like it better than StreamedMP)

    myhome looks good, if I also copy over mediastream's fonts.xml file, but this messes with the rest of StreamedMP.

    If I use the StreamedMP fonts.xml file then the myhome gets messed up. So logically i went through myhome.xml and wrote down all the fonts I needed to add, this didn't work i get missing text for the vertical scrolling menu in myhome.

    Can someone tell me how to solve my problem?

    ... Basically i want to get the attached myhome.xml to work with the attached fonts.xml, by adding the necessary fonts to fonts.xml sounds easy, but i can't do it after 3 hours of trying!!!! Alternatively if someone could tell me what to change in myhome.xml instead that would be fine too!! I basically need to leave all the fonts in fonts.xml there and just add anything extra that is necessary

    Please someone help me!

    I see that the 2 fonts are mediastream28 = Fluid Title Caps, size 30, bold and mediastream17b = Fluid Title Caps, size 17, bold.

    [collapse]
    <font>
    <name>mediastream28</name>
    <filename>Fluid Title Caps</filename>
    <height>30</height>
    <start>0</start>
    <end>1536</end>
    <bold>yes</bold>
    </font>

    <font>
    <name>mediastream17b</name>
    <filename>Fluid Body Caps</filename>
    <height>17</height>
    <start>0</start>
    <end>1536</end>
    <bold>yes</bold>
    </font>
    [/collapse]

    How come if this is near the end of the fonts file it doesn't work, but if i list these 2x fonts first then it works? Is there a limit to the number of fonts you can load? Or is there a problem if myhome.xml loads before mediaportal has finished importing the fonts?

    If you look in your myhome it is also calling for mediastream27 but there is no 27 in the font file or even in the newest mediastream, I just added a 27 I think it was changed to 28, and added all the other missing fonts from mediastream.

    Not sure if its gonna work but worth a shot.

    You should be able to change them to the ones from StreamedMP, did you delete the cache? Fonts are cached too...

    thanks, pilehave got it going in the end. deleteing cache didn't seem to make a difference, but maybe i inadvertantly did clear the cache which may of helped
    anyways here is a copy of myhome.xml that can be used for people using StreamedMP with StreamedMP fonts.xml file.

    Is there a limit to the number of fonts you are allowed to load, i was expecting to just be able to combine the fonts.xml from both skins into a single file, but that never worked.

    Yes, there is a limit to the number of font-definitions, I haven't got the excact figure but you probably met the limit when merging two font-sets.

    That makes sense why it was giving you problems, I didnt know that.

    OK, this is specifically for people in Belgium (Vlaanderen) who are using Telenet Cable with MediaPortal 2. Next year (Edit: this year, in march 2020) the Telenet provider will stop broadcasting Analog TV and Radio signals on their cable, and make the switch to Digital (DVB-C). The radio signals will disappear completely, so you'll...
