jmarshall Wrote:If you're getting white fanart, then clearly it's doing SOMETHING, right? Perhaps it's screwing up in some way. Check your debug log while it's creating a DDS image. Check your Textures.db. Check your video thumbnails folder (more than just a "is it the same size") for any .dds images.
Yes correct it is turning it on, but it is not creating any DDS files in the video / thumbnails folders
Could you please explain checking my "Textures.db" ?
Is my build new enough to support automatic DDS creation? (R28256)
Do i have to do anything else other than edit the advancedsetings ?
Thanks in advance

Way too old. Most of the work was done in the r29000's - grab an r30000+ build if you want to use them.

So is this automatic now then?
I don't see any .dds files in my userdata folder.

Gotcha, thanks. I can stop messing now then lol!!
Im guessing that as im XBMCLive i cant just download "xbmc_31033-1_i386.deb" and install it?
I guess I will have to wait for a new xbmclive release?

Its automatic if you have the advanced setting set and does both fanart and posters

i've just downloaded r31033 for OSX i've created the advancedsettings.xml file into the userdata folder to enable the dds creation but xbmc is still using the old method... what i'm doing wrong?? i've this working on my linux box with an older build (before the addons merge) of XBMC and no problems...

"Still using the old method" is meaningless. DDS files are created over and above any other images that are cached, assuming you have the advancedsetting enabled.
- fidoboy - 2010-06-13 03:59
well i want to mean that no dds images are being created.
