    So this means that the newer version of XFace and it's new features will not work with 1.0.2 ? I must update to alpha? are plug-ins compatible like my trailers, online videos .etc with this version ? Plus isn't mp alpha still buggy? should i still stay with 1.0.2 for now until everything in alpha is iron out? and yes i did delete old skin and cache folders. thanx again.
    Skin also works fine with 1.0.2, but there is no vu meter funktion inside.
    Working Vu Meters are only run with 1.1.0 Alpha.

    Greetings Harley

    Great update, thanks. The installer is superb, I especially like the option to switch places on the My Videos and Moving Pictures links.

    I've recently upgraded from MP 1.0 rc1 to MP 1.02 running Xface. I've installed Xface 1.8 & 1.9 and neither seems to have a home page picture for the standard RSS News. I'm a little surprised no-one has mentioned it (that I can find) so I'm wondering if I've missed something obvious or does no-one else use the RSS news plugin?

    Next to "News" in my home page I see "MP Plugin No Button Picture available", and when you highlight the News button then it goes completely blank. I'm sure this should be a simple fix, just a matter of copying a file to a new name, but some guidance would be apreciated. thanks

    Hi johns11,

    I believe there is already support in XFace for RSS News but you need to add a couple of icons to make it look nice. Have a look in my RAR-file on the previous page and add the two icons "button rss_news.png" and "buttonNF_rss news.png. That should sort out your missing icons.

    I'm still getting the high CPU usage with my Intel G45 motherboard. I have MediaPortal with xface on my other computer as well with a nvidia 7900 card and it works like a charm.

    Does anyone have any idea why i keep getting high cpu usage on the intel platform?

    Skin hangs at 'Initializing Input devices' (in fullscreen splash). It was also REALLY slow booting up to that point.

    Disabled splash, loads to main menu, but 'Starting Plugins' hangs. Interaction works but unusable.

    Compared to default bluewide.

    Granted I'm running 1.1a on Win 7 64bit RC so I didn't expect it to work, just hoped.

    Ah well..

    Update: Got it to work by uninstalling MP and running the xface installer immediately after a fresh install.

    Everything seems to works so far, BUT it has much more lag than the default interface. It is usable though.

    Habe leider ein Problem mit MyFilms.

    1.) Wird kein Icon im Menü angezeigt, für MySeries oder MyTV schon.
    2.) Wenn ich MyFilms anklicke komme ich zwar rein, und er zeigt mir den letzten Film an, den ich mir angeschaut habe, aber MediaPortal schiesst sich sofort ab.

    An MP 1.0.2 kann es doch nicht liegen oder ?

    Hi Harley,

    Today i upgraded my MP to 1.1 Alpha and installed the 1.9 version of XFace. It works like a charm. Thx for the fixes, petsa. I made some modifications in certain layout to fit my own needs, but the skin really is a beauty. Since I missed a good RSS Ticker and weather info, and I am using the XFace skin for more than a year now, I put some effort in editing the skin files for XFace and make InfoService work with BasicHome, both RSS Ticker and Weather (Twitter is also possible by editing a single line in the xml) are supported in this fixes.

    Since I did not want to change the skin layout impressively, I kept it minimal (as you will notice in the screenshots below).

    What's supported in BasicHome:
    - RSS Ticker at the bottom (single + all feeds) with navigation (clickable)
    - Weather Today at the top left
    - All functionality in RSS view (fully reworked)

    Not (yet) supported in these skin files:
    - 5 day weather view
    - Twitter

    Hope the guys, who love the plugin and use XFace, are happy now ;) I definitely am...

    Notice: The BasicHome.xml is the one refering to MovingPictures instead of the Movies plugin when entering Videos.
