I forgot, i have another question... has anyone modded horizonz to use music fanart yet? I remember a post asking about it a few weeks ago and hadn't seen anything else.
If I have time this weekend i was thinking about trying to get the music showcase to work like video showcase so it would pop up the album review and such as you move around. Not promising anything on that though because all the xml I know I learned in the last 4 days.

I love this skin, but have a slight problem with this version: My movies backdrop image won't show up. Every other backdrop shows up fine except for the movies one. Not even the default image will display if I reset the backdrop image. Any ideas?
edit: Running this skin on Xbox if that makes any difference. t3ch 1-25-09 build

Hmmm, I think that movie backdrops are still working on my xbox. I'll have to take a look after work tonight. I'm in the process of switching xbmc over to a pc so i can run Aeon Stark (which btw is awesome) so i'm not sure how quickly i can fix it if there is a problem, but i'll try.

Here are some screenshots for you to reference. I do not experience this problem with the "original" release of Horizonz vol4 (without nifty frames and such).
Movies backdrop not showing on main menu.
Yet all other backdrops seem to work fine, here's TV Shows working properly.
Stranger yet, the movies backdrop appears fine in library mode.

Hexed, i'm not having either of the problems you are, i just checked. I would have noticed the fanart on the main screen right away because i use xbmc everyday. Is this happening to anyone else? I suggest you set your movie backdrops folder to something else try it, then set it back to where you normally have it. maybe that will reset something?? also are your fanarts converted to 960x540? maybe it's some memory issue due to my mod although I don't know why that would be because I think you should have more free mem with the modded xpr??
(I notice that you're not using the lower position for your scrollbar and when you do that it will just show the old style now playing stuff just so you know. I only modified it for the lower position because that's all i use, but i did switch to the upper position to make sure my fanarts were still working and they were. so anyway, i have no idea what's going on.)

Thanks, I ended up solving it by resetting all horizonz settings to default. I have no idea what setting was causing it to foobar, but now I'm no longer experiencing the problem.
Anywho, this is a very cool skin/mod, your efforts are greatly appreciated. I tried out Aeon Stark today, and it is very cool but I believe this version of Horizonz is more aesthetically pleasing. The only thing I'm missing is a "videos" menu link, so you can jump to videos in files view (so i can access things such as music videos). Any hints on how I could implement this?

You can do that by turning on clips in the setup->horizonz->home shortcuts menu and pointing it to "videos".
i just tried it and it says clips instead of videos, but it works.
