I've created 4 different user profiles in order to use 4 different media library (one for english SD stuff, one for english HD stuff, one for italian SD stuff and one for italian HD stuff).
When I launch XMBC I have to choose one of this profiles.
My request is the following:
since sometimes I don't know in which profile I'm, is there a way to add little text line in the upper part of the screen with a description of the profile? Wherever you prefer, just to know what is the profile I'm using.
Thanks for help.
Is there a way to add text in the HOME screen

Use the System.ProfileName and System.ProfileThumb infolabels, something like below.
The <posy> and <posx> control the position, play around with the values to suit your liking. Also play around with the widths of the image, not sure what sizes they are per default since I only have one profile. The available font names are in Font.xml,
Place it in Home.xml to get it on the home screen. Put it right before "</controls></window>" at the bottom, the two last lines.
The "<!-- text -->" are comments, these can be removed.
