tvguide skin question (1 Viewer)

Can someone who has worked with skins please confirm whether or not it would be possible to skin the tvguide such that the genre (i.e. documentary, news, drama, etc) can be removed from the tv guide grid and we can possibly yeild some more entrys in that grid, seems like the genre is a waste of space to most people... even an option to turn in on or off would be nice...

Can a custom skin do this? Or maybe I should put this in the feature request?

Can it be that no one knows the answer to this? Bump, bump, mario, frodo? :)

I am not 100% sure but I think it is hardcoded.

Perhaps we should make this a feature request. If I am not mistaking, the TV guide is built up out of fields of which one is the genre. I can imagine it will take al ot of coding, but knowing that the TV guide consists of fields it should in theory be possible to create a lay-out of the TV guide to our own personal liking :?:

Let's see what other users think about this...

I would have thought, that as the TV guide is XML based, and the genre is a property of the XML, it should be possible to filter out any aspect.

The TV guide would have to accomodate this in the back end, and an options screen listing all genres in the current TV guide would need to be created, so that they could be enabled or disabled.

As the XML was processed, it could be filtered to only show the requested genres.

Its a mixture of xml skin and mp code.
probably fixed in the next version (or the one after)

Hello!!! I use a handy app called catchin' sync to roughly check the AV sync of audio/video on my HTPC/TV. It's not as accurate as a dedicated opto-electronic calibrator but it's more than adequate for this application and much better than trying to do things by eye (even when the lack of sync is massively obvious, subjective...

Thanks for this new release of MP. The link on the presentation page of the new version is incorrect. It goes on the MP 1.24 thread.
