Videos for the kids - No menu (1 Viewer)

I have just started looking at MediaPortal and it looks great for what I want.

I do want to get a cut down version for my kids so they can turn the system on and immediately select any video I have on their list. ( with pictures of the cover art because the young ones can't read yet )

The problem I run into is, When I start Media Portal I go straight into a menu. They have to select My Videos to then get to their selections.

Can I bypass this initial menu?? If so, How???

I have the cover art sorted and it looks great once I am in the My Videos menu.

    I don't know about starting straight into the MyVideos menu, but you could modify the MPHome.xml file to eliminate all of the other options. When it started, you would only have the option of selecting MyVideos, so just teach the kids to press "enter" on the remote and it would automatically take them into MyVideos with no other options. You can also change the MyVideos Icon to something easier to recognize if you're worried about that. Not perfect, but a workaround.
