Don't understand why you are having a problem only with SVN version as I updated my AppleTV with v215 from the passion repo (it's the only way I update this box) and have had NO issues. Now the log file that you posted shows that there are a number of missing weather image files, but they are the inbuilt images that come with XBMC not the images supplied with my skin. The only thing that I can think that would cause this is if your AppleTV's copy of XBMC is incomplete/corrupted. That is if you can't also show the weather icons in Confluences weather screen, otherwise I have no idea.
As to providing a special build of my skin with the weather changes only included, well I'm working on that. It's called xTV-SAF 1.1.0 and it's about a month late (hint the Passion repo is that skin in a mostly finished state). The change that I mention a couple of posts back (new skin setting to toggle animated weather icons) defaults to OFF. In other words use the built-in (XBMC) non animated icons instead of using the animated weather icons that are part of the skin.
Don't know where we go from here

I'm sorry that i cannot help you more to figure out what is the reason for this behavior but it's not really a serious problem
I will use the your xTV 1.0.2 instead. For me xTV it is still the best skin for ATV2 !
EDIT: I modified the positions in MyWeather.xml a bit, see picture

Yes, you were right. Found this thread and followed the suggestions there. Now the SVN skin works perfectely with weather images, so thank you for this hint
Still there are one thing which i want to mention. After installation of the xTV repo skin (V215), the texture file was STILL called "texture.xbt" without the "s". After changing it manually it worked.

thought it would be something like that, good to see that you fixed it. As to the texture.xbt issue, pretty sure that is because XBMC will not re-download a addon unless you remove the cached local version first. At any rate should not be an issue when the next release of the SVN version comes down (I Hope).
I think that I have now got to the point that it's bug stomping only. I will stomp a few more bugs before I make the next push to my SVN (and then Passion will pull from there), so next release will probably not be for a couple of more days yet.
So guy's it up to you now. WHAT'S BROKEN?
Overlapping fields, screens appearing or not when appropriate, etc. Whatever, I need to know about it here, so have at it and I can make a new 'Official' release.

Me again !
Not a bug but i recognized that if i go to Settings/Addons and select a addon there, the skin will be animated.
Is it possible that this can be realised for each menu and that there is a parameter in the the settings to switch menu animation on/off ?

angryjack Wrote:Me again !angryjack,
Not quite sure what you are trying to say there sport. There are animated bits thru the whole skin. Which particular animation are you talking about.
As to turning off animations in the skin, not at this stage as that would be a LOT of work to organize. Animations are a defined all over the place, I will need to bring ALL animations into the main include file and then turn them on/off there before this could happen.
If the request is a speed thing, I'm sort of working on that at the moment. I'm stripping out a whole pile of redundant and duplicate code at this very moment. Have managed to fix a number of small bugs, and things feel a little quicker.
So if you have a bug, I'm all ears, otherwise it will have to wait.

Sorry that i could not describe it better, english is not my native language...
I mean the "Skin Fading" if you enter "Settings/Addons" and if you select an addon there. That looks pretty cool and i wish i could enable this for the whole skin.
As i said, not a bug, so please understand this as a feature suggestion for the future
EDIT: I have the fading in "Settings/Addons" only on my ATV2, not on my notebook ! Probably another problem with cached skin data on the ATV !? I have no idea... :confused2:

This effect is only present (and only makes sense) in the full screen dialogs. So it is currently present on AlbumInfo, PictureInfo, VideoInfo and AddonInfo. Just added it to AddonSetting and SongInfo dialogs as it seems to make sense to do so. As to other screens there are transition animations that are used instead and they make sense to stay that way.
I will have a play with this for the next few days and then push it (and a lot of other very minor changes) to the passion repo in a couple of days time.

Sorry mate only just seen your message. OK, that is a bug in the XBox port of the skin, but this has all changed for v1.1.0 (now 4 scripts can be assigned to home screen). Will add this to ToDo list for the back port to remind myself to make sure it is fixed.
I'm really surprised that no has picked this up until now, I guess that means nobody uses this option of the skin. Either that or lipo has got two versions of the skin overlaid on each other, thus the reason that he is the only person that has encountered this problem.
