    I doublechecked the code and there is no obvious flaw. But as FanArt for label0 is not one of my examples I presume a mistake somewhere in your adaption. Just upload your BasicHome.submenus.xml BasicHome.backgrounds.xml and I will check it. And be sure you have set the necessary #useRandomXYZFanArt set to Yes in your original BasicHome.xml ;)

    I will have a look at it. As well as the new "Upcoming recordings" from LatestMediaHandler...

    In BasicHome.xml (in TITAN root folder) I have:

    Code (Text):
    1. <define>#useRandomGamesUserFanart:No</define>
    2. <define>#useRandomTVSeriesFanart:Yes</define>
    3. <define>#useRandomPluginsUserFanart:No</define>
    4. <define>#useRandomMovingPicturesFanart:Yes</define>
    5. <define>#useRandomMusicUserFanart:Yes</define>
    6. <define>#useRandomMusicScraperFanart:Yes</define>
    7. <define>#useRandomPicturesUserFanart:No</define>
    8. <define>#useRandomTVUserFanart:No</define>
    9. <define>#useRandomMoviesUserFanart:Yes</define>
    10. <define>#useRandomMoviesScraperFanart:Yes</define>
    11. <define>#useRandomScoreCenterUserFanart:No</define>
    The changes I have done to the Basichome.backgrounds.xml are to define my own static background images (like hover_my videos.jpg instead of hover_my videos.png) etc. as well as changing the order of the items to reflect the order changes I've done in my BasicHome.xml. I've included this as well as my BasicHome.submenus.xml too for completeness' sake. ;)

    I have no idea why, but after a restart, FanArt is working again. :confused: Please don't waste time troubleshooting this, it's clearly something at my end.

    I just tried this and found that everything was stuck in German language despite GUI settings stating that this should use English (UK) or even changing to English. Any ideas?

    You'll need to edit the labels manually in BasicHome etc. It's mentioned in the original post I think.

    Attempting to use this mod - looks great, but I am unable to change from skin default, in MP Configuration screen, GUI (edit skin settings). Despite changing from 'default' to 'backdropped' and OK, the theme continually reverts to 'default'. The same behaviour happens when attempting change to 'blue background'

    Any ideas - am I doing something wrong?

    When does it revert to default? Instantly or after a restart? As you also can't change to 'blue background' this is no specific problem of this theme. Did you accidently set your SkinSettings.xml to read only? You can also try to edit SkinSettings.xml (located in '...\skin\Titan') and set the theme name to "backdropped"
    Code (Text):
    1. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    2. <profile>
    3.   <section name="theme">
    4.     <entry name="name">backdropped</entry>
    5.   </section>
    6. [...]
    7.  
    But I have no idea why this shouldn't be changeable from inside of MP GUI...

    It reverted to default instantly - and haven't made any changes to file attributes. Carrying out your amendment to the SkinSettings.xml did the trick though.

    Thanks

    Update:
    V2.4
    • Added: BasicHome.UpcomingRecordings.xml: Overlay for upcoming recordings (requires latest version of LatestMediaHandler)
    • Added: BasicHome.ActiveRecordings.xml: Overlay for active recordings (requires LatestMediaHandler and TV-Notifications enabled)
    • Changed: BasicHome.backgrounds.xml: Enabling/Disabling/Changing Backgrounds and FanArt for each label is much easier now
    • Changed: BasicHome.xml: Added imports for upcoming and active recordings xml file
    I tried to centralize all definitions in one file, but that does not work out. So you will still need to do the adjustments in all corresponding xml files. This means also that every update will still overwrite all adjustments you made...
