    Easiest way:
    1. Convert jpg to png (use paint.net or similar - perhaps even paint will do this)
    2. Rename to background.png
    3. Copy it to the skins\[skin name]\mediafolder
    4. Clear skin cache

    This will work for most skins.

    The other way:
    Modifing xml's
    (not gonna bother writing it, as opt. 1 is OK ;))

    great thank you.
    one more question
    this is probably is a stupid question, but is there any way of adding 10 pics or so and have the background change every minute. sorta like those digital picture frames
    thanks

    Yup, but thats a bit more complex. I'd recommend you to check the XML's of a skin that does this - like Aeon (found in the graveyard).

    Good. I am pleased that that is now working for you. :) If you have ever looked at MP debug log files, you may have noticed that apparent errors are not rare, but these are "errors" that do not affect the functioning of the product. (It is not desirable to have these errors in the log file, as it misleads users, testers, and...

    So far I have installed an MP1 server and MP1 clients. Now I want to connect a Raspi to the MP server. Is there a HowTO for this? I installed the MPserverKodi plugin, shared the corresponding directories, and activated smb under Windows. Nevertheless, Kodi remains with the message 'PVR Manager is being tested: 0%

    I tried setting the windows screensaver to power off the display on my MP1 HTPC but in fact it only blanks the screen ("no video signal") on the TV I suspect the AVR has something to do with that. If I manually put the TV only into standby when TV is playing but paused then on wakeup I could not immediately take it out of pause and...
