i know it's gonna suck a little but try and reset all skin settings... that way if a setting got sucked it should disappear...
also, if you don't have library scanned the Movies or TVIcon will not show. that's to conform with Confluence behavior, so if you set up a box and deliver it with SiO2-X then the final user get to easily add sources, since if no libs are scanned, neither MOVIES nor TVSHOWS appear. Instead You get the link to sources in first position.

but that might not be your case...

you got TVshows scraped into library and ICON activate but it won't show?

Yep I haven't changed my setup, have a lot of tvshow on a hdd. Will try the reset skin setting tomorrow.
Further i've noticed a change in the icon view, the icons are now dimmed dark by default. Will there be an option to disable that? If I'm asking to much just ignore it, you already done a lot of improvements and I'm thankful for that! :-)

The first two Favorite icons are out of place, they are in between TV Shows & Add-ons icons. It's like this in both of the devices. Is there any way to fix this problem? I was also wondering if the number of Favorite icons in the home screen can be increased to as many as I want to (say 10-20).

Thanks in advance!

That's no bug you're experiencing, the first two favorites are there on purpose. Here's why:

If you link them to any addon or favorite that creates a list... that list will be accessible from shelf.

say you favorites "horror" and place that favorite on one of those two item, then the shelf (when you go on the home icon you just created) will automatically fill the shelf with content from the horror genre.

in order to uderstand better what i mean, give it a spin... add as favorite any genre, or playlist, or plugin. then add it there and voilĂ .

here's an example.

as far as adding more favorites that isn't top priority, since almost everything is accessible with 3-4 clicks...

Hope that helps.

(just for the records, i see you put a lot of channels in your favs.. maybe you should do a list of channels (or a playlist) directly and then add that list to favorites (one of the top two) so when you select that, the shelf will show all your "chosen" channels and you go up and select what you want... just an idea....)

-edit: I see most of them are addons... why not placing them in addons link in home shelf customizer directly without using favorites? that way you got 6 favs + 6 add ons + 6 script. (and all the addons are accessible from shelf anyways.. if you hover on the addon icon and then up twice switch between video-music-programs (i heard rumors there could be a favorite/most_used add ons list in the future......... that could come in very handy!!! read more here)

Thanks for the response! A lot of information to grasp which is gonna take some time for me who just started using the skin a few days back Wink I really appreciate your explanation. Really love this skin!
