A quick question regarding tv sub menu favorites - KOROR - 2010-10-25 22:49
I've created a TV Show submenu (easy to use and cool feature by the way) for my danish TV Shows, which I have in their own folder.
My problem is that I do not have any logos for the danish TV Shows and having all these NO LOGO tv shows appearing in the TV Show menu (logo view) doesn't look good.
So is there a way to have XBMC display these in the submenu without setting the content as TV Show, cause when I set the content as a tv show, all the shows automatically gets displayed with the rest of my tv shows?
I hope what I wrote makes sense :-)

can you change the view that its using for your submenu Tv shows to some thing that doesn't use "logos"

The problem is that XBMC does not recognize the content of the "Danish TV" folder unless I set the content as TV Show and the moment I do that XBMC displays the content along with all the other TV Shows, so I guess what I need is for XBMC somehow to disregard the "Danish TV" folder for the standard view.
I'm sorry if this doesn't make sense, kinda hard to explain.
Gonna go to bed now, will check for answers tomorrow.

You could also create 2 playlists:
1. All TV but danish
2. Danish stuff
3. Then hide the regular TV main menu item
You'll lose submenus but it'll work, thus creating 2 TV libraries...

Sounds like a good idea, how would I do this?
Would the Playlists have to be updated manually each time I add new shows/episodes, or would it work like now where XBMC updates it automatically?

no create a SMART PLAYLIST and it will update automatically.

I see, is there a guide for creating a smart playlist, I found where I can create/name a playlist, but not sure how to add folders to it?

why not try to make the danish logos urself? i did that to my norwegian shows.

I would actually love to do that, but I have no experience using image tools and I would have a hard time finding time for it in the nearest future.
Which image tool did you use?
Also would still love if you could link to a guide for creating a smart playlist :-)

i use photoshop. could also do gimp if u don't want to pay for license. what i do is find a good image with the logo and remove everything around it.
