i have the correct picture folder selected in the MP1 configuration and the slideshow works when selected via the Pictures menu. But when I try to use slideshow.xml (screen id 2007) via a button created with the Streamed MP configuration or go to screen 2007 on the Screen Control plugin all I get is a blank screen. Can someone point me in the right direction for using the slideshow.xml with the Streamed MP skin?

    Did you ever solve this W4ATL? because I am having exactly the same problem trying to get a button on the basichome screen to go straight to slideshow.

    I've rigged something up using a multiimage control as a temporary fix, but don't like it much as it always aligns left.

    No. I just run it via the Pictures menu when I want to see the slideshow.

    Oh. What a pain for you. Bad luck. Thanks for getting back.

    I have a cranky idea I might try about putting the basic home buttons on the Pictures menu and using that as an alternative home screen instead. If it works I will let you know.

    I have an alternative solution: launching an external slideshow from a media port (for example, I use PhotoScroll1.10.scr for these purposes). Sample code to run an external application:
    Code:
            <control>
                <type>button</type>
                             .
                             .
                             .
                      <application>c:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\PhotoScroll1.10.scr</application>
                             .
                             .
                             .
                  </control>
