Can anyone point me to the file which defines what colours each Genre is?
i.e.
Soap = Green
Drama = Red

I would love for this to be configurable via xml or whatever as I find the default colours a little OTT! Not complaining though because I love the idea of colour coded EPG.

    afaik these colors are hardcoded somewhere in the MP-code.
    Can this be confirmed, please?

    I would like to use the genre colours feature, but some of them are too dark and make the text difficult to read. It would be good if these were user configurable, or skin configurable.... :)

    Hi,

    yes, I can now confirm this. The colors are hardcoded in GUITVGuide.cs. I think it should not be to difficult to make this customizable through a .xml file for each skin.

    Some semi-dev here to take a look into it? :)

    I might find the time next week. But no promises, chrismas time is comming closer...so time is an expensive good. ;)

    Is a not-even-a-dev sufficient? ;)
    I'm willing to take a look at this as well, if you can't find the time. I also can't promise any date for start/completion though, since things have been busy at work lately and might be in the near future as well.

    Kind regards,
    Michel

    That's wonderful guys - I didn't expect such a quick response.... :)

    I just wish I were a "dev", or even a "semi-dev", so that I could do these sorts of enhancements myself.... :D

    Hi, That is unfortunately not possible. I fear you have to mark them as watched manually. Maybe there is also a change with an data base editor (SQLite Editor), but it will be not easy and I can’t provide a manual, because I didn’t try yet.

    I found the answer. The files were downloaded, and must have had some sort of corruption in them that passed the other players I tried them in, but produced the green bar in the TVSeries plugin. After downloading the files again, the problem went away. Thanks for your help.
