    Hi,

    I have created a new test version (R570) that should contain fixes for all reported issue so far (download link on first page is updated). Please let me know if you find more issues or new ones. This is the last test release before I make the next version public;)

    About the old orange list item backgrounds, I have decided not to make this an option in the skin (will be to complicated). I will release these graphics in a separate MPI package that you can install if you like those old list backgrounds.

    best regards

    i have make a smal test on fresh install of x-factor style but i have seen 3 issues.


    On 1. screen you can see the small issue in the small item window! This is only you open the Basichome Menu, or go back from another Menu in the Basichome Menu.

    the 2. screen you can see the errors is still there in this Menuitem. I missing the Description as in all other Menuitems.

    The 3. screen must be an error but why does not always can see the background picture in all items?

    The rest of my founding issues are fixed exept under "Recordings" you have still the error with the Recording Icon as in the Timer Page but you have fixed this in this Page.

    I have a question still yet because of the Radio Page and RadioTime Page, the two sides you can not adjust more to the music page?

    Otherwise, this version is very good!!!:D

    Hi dlarge500,

    Thank for the feedback. Issue 1 and 3 are now fixed. About issue 2. What is the text you expect to see in that menu? Is it very long?`I see the text on my menu but it is called Pictures. Please let me know the exact text you have on that menu so that I can test.

    best regards

    cul8ter, a few more comments for you:

    Image 1 (moving Pictures) shows the upper border of the text panel dropping down into the movie title - probably just needs to come up a bit.

    Image 2 (Basic Home) - just an observation, on last version the menu bar had nice detail top and bottom (a ridge) this is now gone. Is this deliberate - for me it looked much better before.

    Image 3 (TV recordings) - This may be the same issue that Dlarge500 is highlighting. Problem is that the highlight bar fades to black so on a black background it looks like the bar is between recordings. Maybe a thin border line would solve the illusion.

    Final comment - more a feature request (fully understand if its too late to consider). Once I select a song or album in the music section I always go up to the menus to select now playing. For me this would be great as a default once a song started. Maybe this is just a personal preference but I would be surprised if others are not doing the same.

    P.S. even with single images my menu still takes 10 seconds to load on my client (Ion 330 based system) - thought these would be cached. If I read your reply correctly you suggest that if I put my images in a single folder it will load quicker, is this correct.

    Cheers and keep up the good work, :D
