What skins to avoid "Repeating channels in TV Guide" problem?

Hi,

I use MP 1.0 with the standard Blue skin and have only 3 channels in my TV guide. It has been driving me crazy that the channels are repeated, but just found out that the is due to the Blue skin.

So before I leap to try all the skins available, can anyone list some skins do not exhibit this problem or can work around it?

Best regards,
Kenneth

    Just open the mytvguide.xml file (it's in the Blue3 skin directory - you can use Notepad to open it) and reduce the height of the TVGuide Panel until it only shows three channels - just play around with it a bit. I don't use Blue3 so I can't tell you what dimension to set. You might also want to reduce the size of the slider. Here are the codes to look for:

    <control>
    <description>TVGUIDE Panel</description>
    <type>image</type>
    <id>2</id>
    <posX>60</posX>
    <posY>90</posY>
    <width>640</width>
    <height>340</height>
    <colordiffuse>ffffffff</colordiffuse>
    <texture>-</texture>
    </control>


    and

    <control>
    <description>vertical timeline</description>
    <type>image</type>
    <id>25</id>
    <posX>30</posX>
    <posY>63</posY>
    <height>355</height>
    <colordiffuse>ffffffff</colordiffuse>
    <texture>tvguide_slider.png</texture>
    </control>

    Hope that helps
