If you are using a nightly build of XBMC, then your best bet is to install the Passion Repo and download the skin from there. Info on 3rd party repos can be found here: http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Uno...positories

If you are using the official release from xmbc.org, you will just have to wait until I update the 10.1 build, hopefully in the next couple of weeks.

As for Futurama, the key with all tv shows is to ensure the files are named correctly, showname.sXXeYY.whatever.ext where XX is the Season and YY is the episode. Having said that, I just checked thetvdb.com site and there look to be issues with Season 7 of Futurama...

Hello stoli again
I checked the thetvdb.com about Futurama and the new episodes is for season 6, episode 14, 15 and 16 are there. All the information.
But when i make a search it can´t find them in my library. It has found all my other tv-shows.
Thank you

I think removing the "." between your "s06" and "e14" will do the trick.

Are you running a nightly xbmc build or 10.1? If you are using the svn version of the skin it requires a nightly...

Don't know then. Grab it from git - github.com/Stoli. (I think that's right)

I don't know why, but it has been listed as broken in the passion repository for a while now, even though you can manually download it from passion and install it with no problem.

While it is great that the skin works, it is a pain to have to manually download it when I would like to update the skin.

Do you think PM'ing ppic (I think he is the admin of passion) would help resolve the issue?
