Some minor requests - bandelguy - 2012-02-01 05:28
I have the following small requests for the skin:
1. Please provide in the skin to set a path for artist logos in the music folder.
2. Banner.jpg/ poster.jpg support in Tv library views.
3. Bigger 'now playing' in Home Menu for music.
4. Weather plus support (it's a big thing). Weatherunderground will soon have same functionality like weather+, as I read in the weather addons forum. Thanks in advance

Hiya bandelguy - thanks as ever for the ideas, really do appreciate them.
I have some thoughts against doing 2 and 4 (well 2 mainly as XBMC doesn't natively download banners or posters and I want to keep the skin pretty much default friendly. I've stated my issues with 4 a few times already - ie what on earth has weather got to do with watching tv and movies? I've never seen the need for weather in a media centre - it's kinda bizarre in my opinion. However saying that, people who know me also know I listen to ideas and sometimes come round to them. So I'll certainly have a think about it. 4 would be a lot of work for something I personally don't care about but if I have time I'll look at it.

I have no problem if backrow doesn't support weather+, I only meant it as a suggestion. I won't bring it up as a suggestion. Btw, what is your opinion about numbers 1 & 3 ?

Oh no don't worry - I like all suggestions it helps to get me thinking of stuff to do mate.
Yes I'm already thinking about 1 and 3 and how I might implement them.

It would be possible to add request 3. also in screensaver?

I can see your point that weather doesn't really have anything to do with watching movies. However I have multiple xbmc boxes in the house (all running the back row skin to make navigation identical on each one) with each machine automatically booting into xbmc, and I have gotten rid of regular cable - I would like to be able to check the weather+ from my bedroom or the living room right from the main menu. It would just be easier not to have to exit out of xbmc and then into a web browser to check the weather.
The wife and I absolutly love the skin, and have actually brought about 5 new users in the last year to not only xbmc but also the back row skin just from showing all of my (I mean your ) hard work. Keep up the wonderful work!

Thanks mate really appreciate that. I will try and do something with it but at the moment it's like all things just finding the time in between all the other things going on.
