Every time I start xbmc with Alaska, it defaults to being on the weather home item, how can I change it to start on tv shows or movies?

cheers,

Is this a universal rule, or one that would only work in Alaska?

Could someone point me to the location of Includes_Home_1.xml on the ATV2, or perhaps another method to do the same?

Thanks,
Cal.

I don't think Includes_Home_1.xml exists anymore.

Depending on which home screen style you are using, Default or the Horizontal/Vertical or Icon, you have to edit the Includes_HomeDefault.xml or Includes_HomeList.xml or Includes_HomeIcon.xml respectively.

For ATV, these files should be in
/Users/<your_user_name>/Library/Application Support/XBMC/addons/skin.alaska.revisited/720p

<focusposition>0</focusposition> indicates 1st item on your home screen
<focusposition>1</focusposition> indicates 2nd item on your home screen
<focusposition>2</focusposition> indicates 3rd item on your home screen
and so on...

cheers!
