Previously i had Aeon MQ2 on my Openelec 1.0.0 and i really enjoy it but i had some issues:
- dvd/bd cases where not show correctly
- i can not rescrape media manually from info panel of each movie/tv series
So, i switched to Aeon Nox which worked perfectly from these issues, but it lacks in same points, like the home personalization (i cannot add more shortcuts) and the system language (italian).
Is this correct or i am not able to find the features i'm looking for on both the skins?
Thanks

I think the 2 skins have different goal.

for example :
MQ is more user-friendly, with Release, RC...
Nox is more up-to-date, with many commits a day on github.


Being what you could call an 'advanced' user, I use Aeon Nox, launching git before using XBMC doesn't bother me (quite the opposite, I love a skin to change every second).
But I started with MQ.

I think it's related to your use of XBMC. Do you use the nightlies a lot ? Do you just update like once a month ?

Then there's the different features. There's not a lot, but there's some.

Agreed. With Nox you usually are garanteed that bugs are fix fast and you can update the next day. Even with day to day changes in the nightly builds.
With MQ3 you have to what until Marcos releases an update.

I tried MQ3 but still come back to Nox because of current lack of views. Another thing that irritates me me about MQ it that it forces you to use the scripts before you can enable them. I am an advanced user and want to choose myself.

In the end it is you who decides.

Do not get angry, you might have suggested a way to disable it. Wink

I also prefer to manually run the addon, I just did so for ease of use.

I've included a button to disable it, or you choose the PRO mode, the autoexec will already be disabled.

I love your skin and it's great and very slik.
Espacially with the guidence screens on first use.

Just not had the time to ask really. Just been busy with other things to do.
