FYI; further development discussion on adding on-the-fly theme/backdrops changes to skins with variables based on date and time of the day, and weather conditions can be found here:

Here they are. megaupload
If you like them then copie them into Timdog82001 weather-pack.
All pictures are 16:9 but different sizes.

Got also all lot off backgrounds 6000+, all sorts of categories. 16:9 and mostly HD.
Did resize them for xbox use to 1280 x 720. Can make a torrent file of them.

Can somebody tell me what the path should be when using this in XBMC Live?
I copied them on the root of my memorystick in Backdrops
If I go to a terminal, the xx-folders are in /mnt/Backdrops/Weather, so I set the path in the xml's to mnt/Backdrops/Weather/, but I only get a black screen in XBMC... Sad

[edit]
Hm, this might be the problem:

I'll have to figure out how to update XBMC Live to the latest SVN, I guess Confused

Yeah, is that possible? And how do I do that, I know how to use Subversion and make and stuff but is it possible to change XBMC version in XBMC Live?
(EDIT)
Yes it's possible... added the svn ppa to apt sources file and made a apt-get install xbmc... now running latest svn =)

I added this to my xbox running the pm3hd skin using this post
http://forum.xbmc.org/showpost.php?p=254...stcount=17

When I add it the images cycle through super fast. Is there a way to slow it down? I'm running the xbox build from 12-30-2008

As well is there a way to have this run on the main page under the weather section so when you scroll up and down it shows the image for the correct condition opposed to having to enter the weather area? Wink

That should tell you all you need to know, but as a hint, look at the tag <timeperimage>

sure. The exact implementation depends on what skin you're using, but as far as the multiimage control itself, you don't need to change anything about it whether its in the weather window, home window, or anywhere else for that matter.

Thanks Tim I'll give it a looksee. I'm running PM3HD and will give it a tinker this evening.

On a side note it looks like I'm 30minutes north of you geographically. Wink
