Jingai - Did you remove the option to hide the Metropolis help text?
Edit - Just saw that you did remove it in commit 2865041ec9bc486b2c59243327d8a381a01d9433
Can we get this commit reverted....I think this a very useful option and I for one don't like the Help text showing.

I can revert it, but I'd like to talk about it first. I removed the option because it was only used in a couple places (LoginScreen, VideoInfo dialog, and just two spots on the Home screen). I also removed the "Press enter to play" text because it seemed rather obvious to me (I mean, what else is the user going to do?).
The only real help text remaining that I think might be considered obtrusive is the "Menu" and "Submenu" text on the Home screen. My rationale was that this was so minor that it didn't warrant having a separate option in the Settings. I'm a fan of minimizing customization options if they're frivolous.
However, I had also planned on putting it back in if someone told me it wasn't frivolous to them
One question, though: should the "Recently Added <foo>" text be considered Help text?
RE: Metropolis Development - jingai - 2012-06-28 19:54
Per-section selection of scripts (RecentlyAdded, RandomItems, and Watchlist) is in place now.
Also reverted the removal of the HideHelpText option per Aenima99x's request.
@Stoli, I merged the new stuff in via a pull request because I thought it'd be kind of nice to see the closed Issue on github. The merge itself clutters up the git log a bit though. Do you prefer that I do it this way, or just push directly to master?

@jingai - whichever you prefer, it doesn't matter to me.
RE: Metropolis Development - Aenima99x - 2012-06-29 03:40
Jingai - Totally get your reasoning, I just don't like the Menu/Submenu on the home screen. I also don't think the "recently added" should be considered help text. Thanks.

I did revert the change, but to continue the discussion, maybe the Menu/Submenu text doesn't need to be there at all? I don't see it on other skins. Perhaps it's obvious enough to eliminate it altogether?
I personally am not sure, so maybe that's reason enough to just leave the option there.

Hi, any chance for live-tv/pvr support in the skin?
RE: Metropolis Development - jingai - 2012-06-30 17:35
I would do it, but I don't have a PVR setup so it'd be pretty difficult for me to test... so I think I'll leave this for someone else

I'm currently updating the french ressource file. (all translations done, review in progress) I will post it on github later.
Do you know if all ressources are still used ? (I have never seen one of these : 31343 to 31398 - big part to translate - and 31061 to 31107)
Is it possible to add the full resource for id : 31451 instead of recommended only ? (in french recommended and films/tv shows/... need to be inverted to be displayed correctly)

Any change you could make a fix for the annoying pop-up you see every time you use a mouse?
