I've tested v1.6 and I can confirm that things do work like they should in Movies. Hiding three views makes the background speed 100% on the xbox. Like you said though the views do no get removed in the videos section and viewing movies through there the problem starts again.
What I don't understand is that every skin has a Video and a Movies. Please tell me what the difference is between the two. I find it very annoying that you can view movies through Videos. It should be one or the other. But if you remove the ability to not see videos in the main menu then you cannot add a source which I need. I guess what I'm trying to say is that if you add a source for Movies and you set the content for that, then you should not see that option visible in the Videos section only Movies. The problem then becomes you cannot remove the source if you needed to. Why isn't there an option to Add Source in Movies in all skins?

Movies/tvshows is a skin mod. Normaly you have only videos and you can switch there between library and file mode.
In videos lybrarymode you are in movies or tv shows. And set views will hide.
In videos file mode they will not hide. (so you're probably using file mode.)
I can make those hide to...with own hide settings

The biggest problem I have with the way skins work is this library mode video file mode. If I put things in library mode then I cannot see my source for PlayOn that I use for Hulu etc. When I switch back over to file mode then I have my source back to use PlayOn. This is REALLY annoying but I know this is how XBMC works. There is a big discussion on the skins forum on just this subject as to why things just can't be hardcoded setup wise. Which makes more sense to me. If I want to see this or that or make things work this way or that way then I should be allowed to do that. But I guess that's what they call creating a skin yourself ;-)

yep, but it is all logical how it works, if you would/could set content to playon then it would be in library too.
Movies and Tv shows in Home screen is like I said a skin mod. You can see it more like shortcuts to Videolibrary. add sources in Movies or Tv shows is not very logical to me only content with info is allowed in library.
Btw Did also made skin options to hide views for:
Lol I could say now that this is the skin with the most skinsettings....
But damn those options to hide views really fasten up the skin and gain memory..... a lot !!
Makes this skin the most lite (fanart) skin to run on the xbox !!
New version available (1.7) see first post.
Btw maybe I can make Memory use even lower as it is now....need to do more tests.

Waffa your v1.7 kicks ass with the ability to remove view options now. Thanks again for that ;-). But for some reason the animated weather icons no longer work and haven't worked since v1.4. The icon images work as long as I don't have the animated options checked off. If I check those options then I get a blank screen where the images are supposed to be. Is there anything I'm missing? I have the weather icon pack installed locally on my xbox which worked fine before. Are you seeing this by chance?
- Waffa - 2009-12-11 19:49
Strange they work fine on my windows system
I'll take a look on the xbox.
Oh btw you mean in home or/and weatherscreen ?
Did looked on the xbox and also here works fine.
Did you place the animated weather thumbs in MiniMeedia Waffa!\media\icon ?

Quote:Did you place the animated weather thumbs in MiniMeedia Waffa!\media\icon ?Hmmm no I didn't but I don't ever remember doing that. I have the the animated icons in the weather pack located on the F partition on the xbox. Then I simply enter the path to the weather icons for weather. Let me try what you suggest and get back to you.
- d00dtv - 2009-12-11 23:22
Hehehe....don't you hate it when you ask a silly question? You are correct. It works fine now ;-)
- Waffa - 2009-12-12 04:05
Nope, there are no silly questions only answers.

New version available 1.8. See first post
I starded with adding menu thumbs and ended up with almost all PM3 HD thumbs.
(63 thumbs are added in total, so skin size did grow to almost 7 MB)
Why add PM3 HD Thumbs ?
Because those are the most beautifull you can get IMAO.
The Menu icons are very usefull with kids!!
And for those who use the xbox, did save some memory.
Have fun !!!!
Default thumbs PM3 HD in MiniMeedia.
