That worked, thanks! But I've come across a new problem:

[Image: 09.jpg]

Before updating the .xml files, I could give the 'Finding Freebo' and 'Dexter' parts different colors. But after the update, they both react on '<color name="OSDPlayingTrack">FFFFFFFF</color>'.

Is this supposed to happen? Or can this be changed?

Regarding the Blue Mosaic color scheme.

When in the Pictures section, or when in slideshow mode, I've noticed that the mask is showing over the top of the images making the images hard to see and off color.
I like the effect everywhere else, but if possible, would like to turn it off while viewing pictures and slideshowa so that the original image's colors are true.

I'll check it & see what I can do.

I checked it out on my computer & both the slideshow & regular viewing of pictures come thru clearly (no mosaic pattern on them) so I'm not sure what may be happening on your HTPC.

Is anyone else having this problem?

As promised, here is my blue/orange theme "blorange".

I'm pretty happy with the result and I'm using it as my personal colour scheme for now, I hope you like it Smile

[Image: 6133873_bigthumb.png] [Image: 6133875_bigthumb.png]

Yes, I guess, because I tried to make it look "mat", and follow the whole "fanart comes last" idea from djh, I made the background colour "ff" and removed the background filter too.

You can try and change the background "ff" to make it more see-through, but I don't know how it will look though.
