    Hi,
    I'm wondering if there is a skin that shows the TV playing full screen behind the guide instead of in a small window in the corner (same as Windows Media Center)?
    Thanks

    Thanks for your reply. Just tried Streamed but it's the same as Titan i.e. the live tv picture is in the bottom corner instead of full screen in the background of the guide

    You can play with the skin xmls ...

    The Playing Windows normally comes from common.overlay.xml or common.overlay.home.xml - this is imported to the xmls where a player is shown (like mytvguide.xml). you can now create an own common.overlay with only teh settings you want or put it directly into the xml. It's a littel try and error but it should be easy to archive.

    Have you tryed the top bar in streamed, move the cursor to the top of screen when watching TV or a Video and click on the circle with an eye in the middle. This will place the currently playing TV show or Video the background until you click the Top bar eye again. Video will be background for all MP screens until Top Bar is clicked again.

    You need to install the 'Video Background Auto-Switcher' plugin, then just remove the tv box in the corner.

    I am not sure if this works with the later version so you may need to ask someone to re-compile it for you..

    Won´t work! That way the overlay would cover the whole screen making all the rest unvisible (because it´s an overlay) ;)

    Yep - you are right :) - But if you put it on top of th xml would the rest not be put above the overlay?
