Hello All,

Firstly, I am having a great time using XBMC (Eden), this is my first experience with XBMC and, I must say, it is a very polished piece of work.

My question involves adding an add-on (mythbox script) to the home screen. Currently I have to go Videos -> Add-ons -> mythbox to launch it. Is there a way I place it next to one of the "main" components on the home screen (i.e. next to Music, Movies, Weather, etc.) ?

Many thanks,

Fred.

Yes. You have to select the addon and open its context-menu (c on keyboard), then you have to use "Add to Favorites".

You can also add (in confluence) Addons right to the main menu with "System -> Settings -> Skin -> Add-on Shortcuts".
