I was wondering how to specify hyperlink parameter in a basic home menu tile?
Been trying to get the tile to jump directly to a custom category, but no luck. The categoryid is 177.
Any tips?

    depends which plugin its for ? tvseries/myvideos etc? and are you setting it by f9 on the relevant tile and press right on the editing icons till you get to the hidden one ? think its third one along.

    Yeah, sorry about that. It's for Moving Pictures.
    Trying to enter the info in the hidden one yes. I've tried with "categoryid:177" only 177 and with xml tags.
    Edit: thanks for your reply!

    Can you set movingpictures to debug log level from the movpics config itself and post the log file along with what the category name is ?

    Just checking looks like i've somehow missed the line needed for this between versions so will fix and release an update, in the mean time you can add
    <hyperlinkParameter>#tile12plugin.parameter</hyperlinkParameter>

    Change the number to whichever number tile you are adding it to and add that line to the control for the relevant tile in xml.

    In a fresh install of MP 1.27, the aresbackup plugin was enabled by default, even though I didn't (at least not consciously) install the ares skin. During installation I chose "DefaultWide", but I actually use the antique Frames.
    Shouldn't the aresbackup plugin be disabled by default in this case?

    It's not implemented, I turned it off once and it doesn't bother me anymore. :whistle::) The skin is installed anyway, and can be switched from the GUI, so this plugin is up to the user, who does not need it, can turn it off himself. :coffee:

    Hallo, Since the update to MP1 27 pre, the refresh rate display no longer works correctly. The font is too small and illegible. The display can be reached with "Shift, 1". Andreas
