    Thank you very much for the link. Will install and check it out momentarily.:)
    Is there any way in the TV Series section to have more of the wide banners visible? Unless I go to FilmStrip or Coverflo view, there are only 4 banners. I always prefer that view as I have lots of shows I am always catching up on. I have a couple possible questions on plugins, but will spend some time going thru the plugin-mod thread first to see if they have already been addressed.
    Thanks again for all the work and effort in this project.

    Installed the 1.4RC earlier and sadly it doesn't work for me.
    The editor looks great and I think is going to be a hit, but the 1.4 skin starts loading and after 5 to 10 seconds the screen goes white (or blank, depending on the system) and just stays there. I've let it go for close to 5 minutes like that before using the task manager to clear it. This is on both a Win 8.1 machine and on a Win 7 Pro machine. Re-installed the 1.3 version and everything works fine. And I'm running MP 1.6RC on both machines.
    So, I guess I'll wait a little while till MP 1.6 final and your 1.4 final are out before trying again.
    Since I like more colorful backgrounds (I've been running with Purevision, thanks for your never-ending improvements, Catavolt, for years now), I am looking for to being able to put in some custom art and menu structures when everything is working solidly.
    I can see myself alternating between Purevision and Xtreme in the near future.:)

    Hi tamvegas,
    I've not tried with Win8.1 but with Win7 absolutely yes, so it is very strange that you cannot start the new version of the skin (n); have you tried a simple restart of the PC? I don't know why :confused:, but often for this strange issues a simple pc restart can solve.

    Hope this can help

    once happened to me too, as a result of skin-installation performed concurrently with other operations (I was copying files and other things), I solved by simply re-installing the skin ;)

    Is there a way with the xtreme editor that when going into TV it would run MCE? I previously did something similar with multishortcut.

    It is currently not possible :(
    The editor is an external application which simply modify a configuration file and other small things (in fact the EXE file can be launched from any location).

    To do what you ask, the editor should really become a process plugin, then stay active during execution of MP and emulate what is already multishortcut plugin..
    There should also be coordination with the skin in order to identify the control that requires the execution of external programs.

    Maybe in the future we might consider how to integrate with Marduk similar requests ;)

    With MP 1.7 there is no need for an external skin editor - all can be now integrated in GUI - Marduk is already informed about the new possibilities ;)

    I was wondering if I could request skin support for the Pandora, MyWebradio and Rockstar plugins. I was able to grab files from Titan's skin for Pandora and Rockstar to get them going without issue but webradio is acting dog slow (which may just be how mywebradio works). The files all had pandora, mywebradio and rockstar in the filename and were located in the titan skin folder and the media folder beneath that.
