Yes of course lots, I can access the library if I go through the video menu.

Can anyone provide the correct edited string? I have a similar issue to the above poster, just looking for the correct values to edit.

I managed to do it in the end, not perfect because you don't go straight into Library mode but better in my opinion. I might spend some time on it but very busy at the moment.
Here is the link to the xml files I modded (4kb)
hope it helps

assuming you have content scanned into your library you need to check under what would probably be skin---skin settings---home window, at this point you should see for both TV and Movies an option that says something like, Hide Movies (videos library) make sure that is not checked, and do the same for TV.
Hope this helps.

Are you saying when you click TV Shows or Movies it opens in non-library mode? If so Just change what you have for TVShows and Movies to:

Ok, I finally got it where I want it. Edited XML is in the .rar file attached, (backup what you have first!)
This modifies the Video Sub-menu to only show recently added items, and adds TV & Movies to the front page (opens in library mode), Games (Through Advanced Launcher), and Pseudo TV (Get pseudo TV addon and skin from this forum
Here's screenshots of the front page and recently added submenu (edited Video menu)

Can the skin creator PLEASE add the *option* for us, even if he doesn't like it personally, just give use the OPTION.
or can somebody ELSE please just post the correct "HomeMenu.xml" file?
(I've tried following the steps in the thread and using jimmy's file to make my own, but can't get it to work properly)
All we need is instead of videos, have Movies and Series.
