Hi, I'm new to the xbmc world. I was wondering if it was possible to add more items to the main screen menu? Right now there is videos but i would like movies, tv shows, and documentries as options. Is this possible? Not sure if this is a skin issue or xbmc issue. Thanks!

Welcome W1nks.
Navigate to -->System-->Skin Settings--> Home-->Categories.

Here you can add categories, sub menus, hide categories etc. Movies & TV Shows are already there but they will be greyed out if you don't have any items in your library in these categories.

Have a look at the wiki, on how to do this.

When you are adding other categories, you will need to find an image that represents the name in .png format. You can just google for it or preferably you can find it in

Good luck.
