Thanks. And by the way, excellent skin. I've been through most of the skins and really like what you're building.

I'm going to add new badges for media types in the next release.

I created a screen capture showing the differences between BGN and Ace menus.

http://digichine.com/menus.zip

You can see in the video how in BGN the menu moves when trying to click something where in Ace it sits still.

The latest revision on GitHub carries an overhaul of the vertical home menu especially suited for mouse users. With the option "use fixed list in home menu", the menu does not scroll anymore when there are less 13 items in the vertical menu. You can now easily scroll moving the pointer to the top or bottom of the menu.

I revised the engine for codec badges adding support for media types following more or less the engine of AeonMQ5 skin.

Added support for CdArt. Here's how it works:

For Movies and Music Videos, the skin automatically picks up the "discart" entry in db generated with Artwork Downloader.
For Music, you need to download cdArt images for every album with cdART Manager and specify the root folder of your music collection in Skin Settings.

Morning Tgx. Do I see from the Github that you are getting ready to update the BGN in the repository. Was going to update mine through the hub process, but will wait and do it the "easy way", if my assumption is correct.

Yes, i'm going to release BGN 1.3 quite soon. It's a matter of 2-3 days.

Thanks

For some reason, I get a script error when trying to run the Pandora music add on with this skin. If I switch to Confluence, I don't get a script error and it runs.

First of all love the look of the skin.
I was trying it out yesterday for the first time. In Live TV, if you go to the channels and select a channel, you hear thge audio for the channel but there is no video. You have to select the channel a second time to get full screen video. In other skins, the first ok click often brings up a smaller preview window where you can see the live TV feed. Then the second click make the TV video full screen. Is this a bug or perhaps I am not doing something correctly.

It's already there!
Make sure you have the "cdart.png" file in the album folder and specify the correct root folder for your music collection in the settings screen.

Thanks

It's by design.

You have 2 options:

1) Go in settings->skin settings and enable "background music visualization / video player".

or

2) Go in settings->live tv->Playback and disable "start playback minimized"

Thanks
