Hiding views seems to be the new thing with saving memory on the xbox
Great work on the update skunkm0nkee!

Hi there, thanks for the update.Minor problem on the home page for me. I use custom backgrounds on music and videos. When returning to the homescreen, or when I have just opened XBMC, my custom backrounds are black for around a minute untill they load. If I navigate away from my homepage then go back, it takes a minute for them to load again. Im using Camelot. Many thanks.

Hey Skunk Maybe you can take a look to Home Screen...and add multi-image for custom backgrounds folders.
Was playing around with Home.xml because it eats all memory on the xbox with default backgrounds while scrolling..
so took out the code for default backgrounds and left the code for custom backgrounds, and set custombackgrounds folders.
Have no memory eating homescreen anymore, but do miss the multi-image

Yep, backgrounds on the Home screen is something that's on my list as it's done in a very different way to how most skins work nowadays (back when the skin was first written it was the only decent way to get the home menu to scroll smoothly).
I hope to re-write it in a more standard way for the next release.

Thank u, looks indeed very different and much more complicated.
Is that also the reason that the defaultbackgrounds are split up that it would be more smooth
I have the feeling that it uses more memory to load split up background images.... (on xbox)
- skunkm0nkee - 2010-01-18 19:07
No idea about memory usage but the images are split up since multiple smaller images were quicker to load than one big image.
The other reason for splitting them (as far as I remember anyway) was so we could have the sub-menu's sliding out from under the semi-transparent blade on the left.

Could you possibly put the "Animated Media Preview" back in, it was the main reason i started using the original mediastream.

Don't think the Music Fanart is Working, Can You Please Check that Please.
- Waffa - 2010-01-19 22:27
Music fanart wasn't a feature when MediaStream was developed..
Also Weather fanart.... I'm sure Skunk will take a look at those features.
