Black home screen (no images) - Matthew Pratt - 2009-08-28 15:01
Hello sorry for the probably very simple problem but i have spent a good 3 hours looking through the menus and then about 1 hour looking through forum and can not seem to find a way to fix this problem (that i can unerstand any way)
I have down loded the images packs and get backgronds on all the screens when i click them (eg. weather,Movies and music) but the main home screen is blank when i start xbmc.
i really hope you guys can help as i really like the skin and would like it to work 100%

try updating your XBMC build to something more recent. google "xbmc nightly builds" for a site that has builds for all platforms. There have been some big changes since the stable build.
