ocmdiaz714 Wrote:First of, let me tell you that this a great skin! I've gone through so many and finally found out that hasn't frozen and has handled everything with such ease! I just had a few issues I would like to receive help on, if possible. I'm running build 30776 of T3CH's modified XBMC4XBOX system. One problem is not being able to network when using the skin. I know it sounds silly, but whenever I try to access my XBOX via FTP I get no access and the XBOX's IP shows as 0. I have it set to DHCP. But I get instant access when using any other skin.
I have only just got back from camping just a couple of hours ago so will not be back up to speed on the skin for a day or so, but v1.0 will probably be out by the weekend. If you are up for downloading the skin thru a SVN it's available for the Xbox here http://code.google.com/p/xbmc-repo-wyrm/source/browse/#svn%2Ftrunk%2FxTV-SAF
Or http://code.google.com/p/xbmc-repo-wyrm/source/browse/#svn%2Ftrunk%2Fskin.xtv-saf for non Xbox builds.
I don't see any reason why there should be any network problems with my skin and not anyone else's skin, so could you please post a FULL debug log to pastebin or any other online file host site and post a link to the file back here. Please DON'T post parts of the debug log file as there is important information at the start of the file that will help with diagnosing the problem.
Quote: Another thing is fan-art, why isn't there an option to load fan-art on music media info?Fan-art support has been overhauled for v1.0 should work in a lot more areas of XBMC now, will check if it's working on this screen.
Quote:Also, where's the status on update scans and such?Fixed in v1.0
Quote: And lastly, the power menu looks bad whenever a user is logged in; however, when nobody is logged in, it looks fine. I think it's the added user button which sets it off.Power menu has been overhauled for v1.0, should be fixed. Will check.
Quote: And one last thing, where is the xTV splash image located? I would like to replace the apple TV based image and replace it with an image of an XBOX console.This image is stored in the .xpr file in the /media directory of the skin. To replace you need to unpack Textures.xpr file and replace the "background-startup.png" before you repack the Tectures.xpr file. Or you can edit the "Startup.xml" file in the /PAL directory to point your file instead of the "background-startup.png" file. If you are using a widescreen TV the stratup file is located in "/PAL 16x9" directory instead.

Thanks a lot for all the info. I completely ignored this was a mod in it's early stages, it's looking great so far though. I also saw that there's a download availabe for a regular xTV SAF plus another for the Xbox console, is there any difference? I had downloaded skin.xTV_SAF_v0.96.zip, but am now in the process of downloading xTV_SAF.zip. As for the network problems, I guess my system was just acting up because it's fine now.

For XBox the file you want is xTV_SAF.zip. Not a real lot of difference other than the name of the skin as this version was pretty much a universal version. Version 1.0 is not really universal any more, so you will need to make sure you download the correct version when I release it. If you where not running v0.96 which version were you running, as v0.96 has been available since August of last year? If you like v0.96 you will love v1.0 as it is quicker, more polished and now with 50% less bugs .

Tried out xTV SAF 1.0. Great upgrade! I just had one question, which may sound silly, but what major differences does this mod create against the standard xTV skin?

it works on XBMC Dharma. xTV would appear to no longer be under development.

lipo Wrote:finally XBox xTV-SAF v1.0.0 outLipo was going to release together with the Non XBox version of the skin just before Xmas but had a few issues with the car and then the repo guardians pinged me on a number of issues with the skin. As the Xbox version was ready and it could be upto a week before I can resolve the issues, I thought it best to just release the Xbox version. I am about to make another run at the XBMC repo and see if I can't get the skin accepted this time.
Quote:i have experience low memory issue, maybe because i use coverflow view so i disable it (it blocked fanart anyway)On the XBox 18M free is not a low memory situation (that is what your log file is showing). A new feature of the skin is to show a message at the top of the screen when there is less than 10% free memory remaining (about 6M on the XBox)
Quote:i have issue with fanart when palying video on backgroundNot sure what the issue is here, will take another look at fanart handling when I get a chance

I also received a low memory error for the first time, under list view using fan art, but have since disabled it. It's fine as I don't really need the fan art. Also, I recently installed the YouTube plugin v1.9.6 BETA. How can I have the YouTube shortcut on the homepage link to it? Whenever I try to do, I'm asked for the direction to the script yet this is a plugin. Any help?

Whenever I try to do, I'm asked for the direction to the script yet this is a plugin. Any help?Sorry, probably my bad on this one. I noticed the problem on the Non XBox build and fixed it, but obviously forgot to make the change to the XBox build. Will investigate and post a fix.
