StreamedMP Skin Lost Ability To Cycle BasicHome Background Images

I have upgraded Moving Pictures to the latest version & updated the skin with the patch ( To be honest, I'm not sure exactly when this happened. I have customised a number of areas of the skin eg. custom splashscreen, images & folders using the skin editor. But not adjusted any *.xml files, except as below.

I have checked the basichome.xml file & changed the various menus to <randomise>true<randomise>. Most were set to false, except 'video background'. Not sure why.

The images on the basichome screen are static, with the default constantly showing. The Moving Pictures & TV Series plugins are both working perfectly, with random fanart showing. Any other areas I should look at? Thanks.

Thinking out loudly, I think??? it worked correctly using the files. Will recheck & post back.

If it matters, I am using MP SVN 24669.

I upgraded a few days after it came out, and my problem is that the movie backgrounds dont even show in info view (just the cinema seats). Once I play a movie and go back to the movie selected screen the background then appears.

Its been annoying me, but then I'm getting ready to buy the Win7 Retail to replace the beta so not got round to posting any bug reports.

Did changing it to true allow it to cycle? I too face the same issue and currently must use a default.jpg image. It used to be nice to just throw in pictures and it would cycle them.

Same problem here!
I cannot change the 'cinema seats-pictures' to the other backgroundpictures..
I've made an extra Menu Item to WEBVIDEOS (onlinevideos) in the homescreen and since then I have this problem.
=> Set menu theme. (to choose a background for webvideos-menu)

Has anyone found a solution?
I also get a framework error when i start the StreamedMP menu Editor.
