mcborzu Wrote:Paul...thx for the PM reply
Well I decided to install a new copy of XBMC(the newest T3CH) after resizing everything, but somehow that was messed up...I'll fiqure out that one later.
In the meantime I usually use a tiny mod(gettting rid of the white glass overlay on movie posters) then recompress. I decided to just use the .xpr you created, with the 720 update and it was not perfect but it can play movies and TV shows now. Though I cant fast forward movies but that was 50/50 with other heavy skins anyways.
1. Can a library be too big? I have about 430 movies and 800 episodes
2. Can you fast forward with Rev 2 and 3 in movies

jarod71 Wrote:looking forward to the next revision Paul? also, are you still reducing the graphics or just optimizing the png's? I tried the dvdplayer even with regular divx and it eats up the memory. The 720p xvids I have are high bitrate and play with no framedrops with dvdplayer and many frames skipped with mplayer. I will try one with the latest nightly build however and post my results.
After someone recomended using png gauntlet i decided to have a go with it.
Downloaded all latest updates and started by resizing every file (by Hand) by 50%
then i ran every single file through png gauntlet(thinking this will do no good and it will screw up the transparency's) It took ages going folder by folder and to my surprise it did not screw up and now i can confirm 2 things 1 it makes a big difference if you can call an extra 2mb big (i do) and 2 never again will i use .jpg images for backdrops they use more memory i now exclusively use .png i will try using bmp later.
shokka9 Wrote:Yeah, i used the files in your first post....Sorry to hear things went tits up for you. but at least now your back on track.
With regards to movie plot all the settings for that are on the top menu bar(the one that drops down when you push up on the D pad and navigate to Layout press it and wait a few seconds for it to change Theres Layout plot / Layout Thumb / Layout art. It takes some getting used to but i love multiplex view the best using plot info.
Ok now assuming you have all your tv shows .nfo's etc in one folder like i do then you have to add them using the video option on the home screen go into it hit add source am sure you know the rest.... once you have that done then you have to tell it what the source is by highliteing say tvshows bring up the context men and select set content. after you have done all that it should then be a case you going on holiday while it scans in your shows info ha ha... i hope you understand all this....

You cheeky person you but no you have to buy your own knife and butter ha ha ha

But yes i can fast forward Using revision4.5 with next to no problems But i do use mplayer by default as i do have fast forward and rewind problems with dvd player. i hope this is of use to you
Populating the home menu - Sodapop666 - 2009-04-30 12:36
In previos releases I have connected the menuoptions to my shares (Tv Shows to Tv Shows, Movies to Movies etc.) in a menu in horizons settings, but I cant find this in stark. So I cant make Movies open with Movies and Tv Shows open with Tv Shows. Is there a way to make this work? Make default in context menu doesnt work either. Im running in file mood for several reasons. Thanks in advance. And thanks for all the hard work.

My advice learn to use the library it's easy once you know how.....

But rev4.5 is even better i am aiming for monday again for that more later...

Am not certain wether that will help or not but it's worth a shot besides that pngs are of a higher quality in any case just make sure you have plenty of free disk space for your cache
When i find some spare time i will try this out though it is currently running well for me but more is better

well. what a numpty i am...
forgot that my movies are NOT even scanned into the library...i thought it would just look in the folder??
anyhow, scanning in (hundreds of movies) and it works as it should.
I cant get any other view tho...i always have flow and flat?? i left it to rest on the layout tab and nothing happens...
Found multiplex, after scanning it all in, its right there!! Thanks PAUL, this is amazing good and easy to use!! But just finding right settings now....multiplex is causing lag in some views?
Runs fine tho. i love it!!

Good to hear your not having any major issues with it.
Were getting there
Quick question - ibejaminben - 2009-05-01 02:41
I have been following XBMC for a while but i am a little confused with the install. Do I just need the aeon Auriga lite rar and put that in my skins folder? Or do i need to download aeon first? What about the fonts where to they go? Just a bit confused. Just want some clarity.
