gobsmob, Thank you, I like the minimalist look too . Will add the request to list of things to do. But, there is currently a watched overlay (green tick for watched, red dash for unwatched). Maybe not available in all views, will check this out. Just the same I don't like how that is implemented at present, so again on the list of things to do.
Now point 1. Temper this with the thought that I don't use library mode much as I don't want to explain to my five year old 'Why Dexter is dismembering that man'. In the skin menu there is a setting to use library mode for TV (was mislabelled as 'TV in home menu' in last version) . Select that setting to start TV in library mode (let me know if it does not, as it means that change did not make it into xTV SAF v0.75).
And point 2. Pretty sure that is the correct thing to happen (set by xbmc), but some people change the keymapping to change the behaviour. Having said that I don't like that just for the sake of the above mentioned five year old. I intend to include the option for a 'Home' button on all views in a latter release, but not until I have sorted out the strings/skin menu mess that I have created. That way if you don't like the 'Home' button, you don't have to have it.
Try the new release, and PLEASE keep the feed back coming.

Thanks for hearing me out. Regarding the watched overlay, my bad. It was actually there. I got mixed up with the other skin.
Point 1. It's kind of weird me out. I have set it set it to show TV the menu on home screen. When I select it, it just go straight to "default TV source" (file mode) instead.
Point 2. I have used other skin as well like transparency! and minimeedia et al, I'm pretty sure that's the default behaviour while pressing the back button. It went straight back to the home screen, not the video library menu. Also, I use only the default keymap.
I totally get it for the sake of kid's p.o.v.
Think about it, maybe you can put some option to hide the plot and the thumbnails too to avoid the kid's from asking too many questions.

It's not clear how I set the script to use in the Home menu. I can toggle it but can't select a script to use.

taintedsushi, when you toggle to use a script on the home screen, scroll down to the next button and click. You should then see a dialog that shows all scripts in the main script directory. Click on the required script and the dialog will close and then show the script name in the menu button that you previous clicked. Go back to the home screen and you should see the icon for the script shown on the home menu. If you don't see your script listed, it's a bug.
If you have a bug, post back what OS (Xbox, Windows, Linux, Mac etc.) you are running and the version of XBMC you are running. Will try to investigate and fix.

I guess it's a bug then. Clicking "script" does nothing.
T3CH XBMC 2009-09-27 SVN rev23183
From Debug Log :
I don't know where special::// points to on the xbox but HomeScripts.py does exist in the scripts directory off the skin.

Point 1. Sorry that sounds like I missed a very small change ( a ! would you believe ) to fix the menu item. Basically the toggle is showing the wrong thing. Toggle back the other way and see if that helps. I will check this out when I get up tomorrow and post the corrected file if needed.
Point 2. You may be right on this, will investigate further and see what I come up with. I'm still pretty new to this skinning gig, so I am checking out how the big boys solve problems.
I have a few ideas that I am kicking around so the adults can watch their stuff without having the kids getting into stuff they should not watch. The wife and kids don't want to have the xbox stop and ask which profile to load, but the wife would be ok with a PIN to access the adults section. Yet another thing on the TODO list.

taintedsushi, Thank you for that will check out tomorrow (off to bed now) and post results when I get up.
special://skin/scripts should point to the scripts directory in xTV SAF skin, so either I have left off the script or miss named it. Either way I need to fix. Thanks for the report.

Shouldn't it be special://skin/xTV/scripts/HomeScripts.py?

CHI3f, Thanks again for the original skin, hope you don't mind me messing with it.
No, special://skin points to the current skin, so it is pointing to xTV SAF. The actual skin name is not required (and will probably fail as it will look for ...xbmc/skin/xTV/xTV SAF which does not exist). Thanks for the feedback.
