Latest SVN starts to black screen - hegemon13 - 2011-04-13 17:42
First of all, thank you for the amazing skin. It really makes by XBMC box feel like a smooth, polished, professional device.
I am having a fairly serious problem with the latest SVN, however. Under XBMC 10.1 in Windows, when I start up with the 4/9 build active, the main menu is just a blank black screen. I can use my remote shortcuts to see the music, TV, and video screens, and they display just fine, but the main menu is always black. Using either the stable build or earlier SVN builds, it worked fine.
Here's the really weird thing: if I switch to a different skin and back to the Neon SVN, the main menu is fine. It's only a problem if I start XBMC with Neon SVN as the active skin. Could this have something to do with the startup update scripts added on 4/9?
EDIT: Nevermind. Just saw in the separate thread that this has been resolved. I'll update when I get home and let you know if I have any additional trouble.

The rar I'm not sure I can help, but is there something strange with the path to your second drive?

I have come across a bug with fanart and the Custom Playlist feature. I have a smart playlist that randomly selects 25 songs from my collection. I have created a playlist launcher called My Radio on the horizontal menu on the home screen. When I play the playlist from that menu item, no fanart appears, either on the fullscreen playback or in the Now Playing playlist.
However, I also added the same playlist as a custom submenu under Music. If I start from there, it displays the playlist first, and I have to hit Play. In this case, all the fanart works properly.
Would it be possible to add a "Play in party mode" radio button when creating a custom playlist button? Ideally, that's how I would like my random playlist to work -- one click to launch the playlist in party mode right from the main menu.
Thanks again for such an awesome skin!

Nope, it's similar to the first drive, named L: instead o E:.
I have recently imported a library from a clean install, but there's no pointers towards any logical connection between this and new additions, and which episodes have logos.
Since it affects TVtunes, it could help to know how it works. Have you any idea about whether there's certain properties an item is required to have for the theme.mp3 to play?

On a second note, I stated that everything works fine with your fix to the logo downloader script, but I'm afraid I was a bit quick. After editing the default.py and replacing the mentioned lines with your code, I just get a script failed message. Excerpt from debug log:
"invalid syntax"? I don't get it.

Not sure about that one. I'll post my complete file when I get home.

Don't bother, I read through the original script release thread, and tried to paste pplc's fix instead of the one you posted, and it works. I'd have thought they would be excactly the same, or perhaps it was something I did wrong. Anyway, it works now, hopefully that fix gets pushed soon so that you don't have to worry about it!

HI stoli. After last git pull update I get blank black home screen.
- stoli - 2011-04-17 15:10
Yeah, yeah, I did it again.
https://github.com/downloads/stoli/skin.neon/Startup.xml replace that in your skin.neon/720p folder, or simply edit it and add the below before the line that currently beging:
<control type="button" id="13">
Won't happen again!

Fixed in tonight's push. Probably won't show up until Tuesday on SVN.
