    I guess it must be a leftover from an old skin then.

    In your Music configuration, my bet is that you have LED VU set as "active". If you turn that off and restart MediaPortal, the log file should be clean. Or you can just copy MyMusicPlayingNow.xml and rename it to MyMusicPlayingNowLedVu.xml. It still won't show any VU LEDs though. :)

    To help n00bs, it might be a good idea if a dummy MyMusicPlayingNowLedVu.xml be created for the Titan skin (ie. a copy of MyMusicPlayingNow.xml), since they could easily decide to turn this on and there's no logic in MP's config to stop them. THe less error screens new people see (like my flatmate that I'm trying to introduce whole new concepts to), the less they'll be turned off by all this kumputr technologie...

    Yeah, true, except it's been about 9 or 10 months since the last post and its probably not a priority. So that's (hopefully) a lot of new users that may have been/are going to be confused. Its really, REALLY hard to get non-computer-literate people to use things like MP, and every error or non-intuitive action is best avoided when possible.
    Its a LOT faster/easier to just dupe the xml file than spend valuable time coding an alternative solution.

    Yes, it has been a long time and i think it's an easy fix also. I just edited the ticket, since it had the wrong component set to it (referred to the Default skin), so let's hope @ncoH has some time to add the files for the VU meter.

    As far as usability for MP: the team is working hard on that. You can find a good example of WIP here:
