ie

PHP Code:
<res width="1280" height="720" aspect="16:9" default="true" folder="720p" />
<
res width="1920" height="1080" aspect="16:9" default="true" folder="1080i" /> 

Thanks, I thought so at first.

Sort of workaround would be to use 1080i for XMLs, Textures.xbt with 1080 image versions inside as default and offer 720.xbt as manually selectable theme. This was your suggestion, right?

If you make a '/themes/720/' folder this becomes automatic available as theme and will be converted to .xbt when doing a PR to repo

I have checked this on ATV2 last night and 1080 can be used there too. There is no performance penalty as long as textures stay reasonably small, which they will. So, JezzX was right it will run on ATV2 with no problem at all, it's just that you will see no benefits because of 720 output/TV resolution.

So, I have checked and confirmed that you have a point here Smile Poll questions updated and big thanks to you Smile
