    AW: X-Factor Test Release (R567)

    Hi cul8er,

    great job, you've done here, although I also noticed a few things:

    1.)
    When using the "images-rss"-design and selecting "show weather forecast always" in the "settings"-menu, the weather-information on basichome is overlapping the rss-feed-line.

    2.)
    I used the default-setup for basichome and with this, I don't have any backdrops when selecting menu-items with a single-image setup, such as "games\default.jpg". Backdrop only shows, if I enter the full path of the image in BasicHome-Editor.

    3.)
    In the new XFactor-Settings inside MediaPortal, if I press "OK" on an already selected radiobutton, the button-highlighting disappears. Of course, this is more of a minor "cosmetical" bug, but since these radiobuttons are radiobuttons, it should just stay the way it is, if you select an activated button.

    Last thing is, that entering the basichome still is a bit slow, but I could live with that.

    :Dfor this great skin! I love it, especially the "images"-design is very nice...

    greetings
    pp

    PS: Like emphatic, I would prefer sub-menus with the "textmenu"-designs...

    AW: X-Factor Test Release (R567)

    I found 2 errors again.

    first screen you can`t see the description of the item is selected, this issue is only in the first Case.

    second screen i have found the issue with the missing Desription for the first Case was selected.

    This issue is only if you go to the left and then right again. you go first to the right and then left is already ok.

    I Hope i can help you cul8er.:D

    Re: X-Factor Test Release (R567)

    I found another wrong overlay for the German Translation. It's in the MiniDisplaySetting (which is a great idea to integrate it in the settings-menu!!)
    See Screenshots the _root pic is where to find the wrong overlay.
    **EDIT**
    I have to change the Path to the Backdrops in the "Menu Editor" on "multiple" and "single" images I have to add "Animations\" in front of the path to get the Backdrops succesfully displayed.

    Hi basti_s89,

    Thank you for your report. I don't have a mini display on my laptop so I haven't had time to skin these skin files correctly and forgot all about it. I will fix this tonight.

    Thanks for the reminder;)

    best regards

    Re: X-Factor Test Release (R567)

    Hi cul8er, not a bug report just some general feedback. I have been using r547/fanarthandler1.5 with 1.1RC1 and think its just about perfect. The new fanart is fantastic only issue is that when I hit the green button to return to the home menu it takes my server about 5 seconds to switch and on some of my clients it takes up to 10 seconds - you start to wonder if its crashed.

    What I liked about Xfactor was its sharp response - I am assuming its slower because of all the new fanart. I am configured with Aeon - NO RSS and 10 menu items.

    I loaded r567 but no difference. I will try selecting single images and see if this speeds things up - if so its a shame as i really like the random fanart. Any thoughts.

    I'm sorry but I really do not like the new guide colour scheme - the old one was spot on. As the main TV interface this needs to look slick and the grey on grey just looks dull to me - sorry. If I ever move to 567 I will be pulling the old guide files back in.

    I have attached my Xfactor.xml file so you can see how I am setup.

    Edit: just a thought - should I still be using animations for 1.1beta?

    Cheers...

    Re: X-Factor Test Release (R567)

    Hi clanmackenzi,

    Thank you for your feedback. About the slow loading of basichome. There is nothing that can be done to resolve this. I count about 10 different image sources in your setup (some images, some multiimages and some fanart handler). MP is designed to load all these 10 images before displaying the screen. The only way you can make things faster is to use less images sources. For example: don't use both movies and moving pictures as source. I wish I could make this work better but there is no way this can be optimized skinning...

    I have a setup with 5 image sources (all fanart handler) and my basichome loads in about a second;)

    Hope you can find a good balance between performance and nice setup.

    best regards
    cul8er

    Thanks cul8ter, I will play around to find the right compromise.

    What about the animation setting - should I be using 1.1beta for 1.1RC1

    Cheers

    Hi clanmackenzi,

    The animation bug in MP Beta 1.1 is fixed so you do not need this setting now.

    best regards
