First of all congrats for the skin.
Its light and elegant and its very easy to use.
One problem though. I really like the "deck" feature, but its limited to just the 6 tv shows on the "ongoing tv series row"
If i try to "expand" the list, it just wont work as for example "recently added tv shows"
Can that be changed and how?
Thx a lot in advance

'Recently Added' is part of XBMC's code and as such has it's own view in the video library; 'Ongoing TV Shows' on the other hand is a script that's checks the database so that's why it doesn't actually open up another view with a whole list of shows.
Having said that the Eden release will contain 10 items for most of the homelists.

I know that, so i tried to see where in those xml files this is stored. I ended up in a Custom_52_Skin_Settings.xml and found the calls to Runscript watchlist.
The limit was 6. I tried to change it to something bigger 20 for example. Saved. Run xbmc, but it changed back to 6. So i achieved nothing.
If you could make that number user defined it would be great.
Thx alot again for the great skin.

Each entry has to be coded in the home XML so you'd need to edit that as well if you wanted more items. As I said, the next release will have 10 shows the same number as the recently added home items.

Hitcher, you seemed to have missed my post from the previous page - mind to comment?

Hands down best skin out there, thanks.
I am having trouble getting my favourites into the home screen.
I have populated my favourites list, and see them when I select that item from the home menu, but if I go to settings and try to assign one to a home screen position, the favourites list come up empty.
Can anyone help me to get that settings favourite list populated?
I had it working, but another addon messed up my system and I had to rebuild my .xbmc folder from the default, which is when I lost the feature.

da-anda Wrote:For the addon-selector you could have a look at how it's done in Xperience1080 (the new metro version) - it allows you to select addons even by category.If I get some time I might change it but it's a lot of extra code when it's just a case of adding something to the Favourites first.
da-anda Wrote:One FR I have is that you should drop "get fanart", "get poster" and "update" from the video/audio info screen and rather hide all those features behind a "edit" button. Doing so will make the buttons fit again on screen and removes in 99% unneeded features out of sight.Don't the buttons fit in your language then?

Thanks, that is what I used the first time when it worked, but now I get to this part:
4. The favourites menu will pop up, select the favourite you want as your first item and simply press enter to save
but the favourites menu is empty with zero items. The favourites list is populated when I access it from the main menu.
I did notice when I had it working before that only the first 20 items in the list are seen by the skin settings, so I had to move things around to get the ones I wanted in the top 20. But now I have less than 20 in the entire list and none are shown?

And you've definitely got script.favourites-3.2.1 installed?
