Is there a way to view individual skin sections (ie. just My Home) without running Media Portal? I would like a quicker way than: make a change, open MP, nope dosn't look good, close MP, rinse and repeat.

    Have you tried the myrefresh plugin (quicker skin development sticky above, plugin download here)? Obviously you still have to open MP and the thread points out a few flaws in the plugin. But on the whole it's saved me a bunch of time by cutting down on the number of times i had to open and close MP as you describe above.

    EDIT...Harley, you beat me to it.

    Rock on fellas. I knew that there was something out there, but for the life of me couldn't remember what/where it was. Thanks again.

    I've been using version 1.2.2.0 for years and have found no need to upgrade to newer version. I hate it that skins loose compatibility with almost every new version. And new skins are too 'fancy' for my taste. I use a customized version of the default wide skin with only Videos and TV in the main menu. I use mediaportal for recording...
