Steveb Wrote:Great job on the PseudoTV skin ronie, you may want to make a request to Jason102 for a removal of zepfan's skin from his script repo as there are some conflicts with textures within the epg when two skins are present.
thanx for the heads-up, didn't notice it before (i'd removed the skin prior to coding my own).
indeed, the epg looks a bit different, though it's not a real show stopper.

Steveb Wrote:EDIT: But seeing as your svn skin is based on XBMC 11(nightlies), you prob wont push to the official repo for some time, so not a big problem Wink

once i get this in the stable T! version, i'll ask them to remove it. :-)

and now it's available in Transparency!

genre backdrops:

you can download a genre background pack here:
http://transparency-xbmc.googlecode.com/...Fanart.zip
or use your own.

to enable,
Skin Settings > Videos - Use genre backgrounds
and select the folder where your backdrops are stored.


if anyone has a nice genre pack for music, i'll add it as well :-)

Here are some more video genre fanart backgrounds in the same style, they could be used as a replacement or alternative to a similar genre, also there are a few tv specific genre fanart's (Science-fiction, Reality, Mini-series).

EDIT: Also I just rediscovered the site that I got most of these from, check out Mike's Gallery over at Dropbox, there are a lot more genre pic's here and some boxset fanart also Wink

Whenever I try to enter my movie library, the skin gives addon.py error. I have to go the library via the files mode, from the movie menu. I am using xbmc dt 17th april and T! Svn version. What and why such error is occuring?

hard to tell without a Debug Log...

might be the cinema experience script?
have you enabled it to run when you enter the movie library?
Skin Settings > Scripts > Integrate Cinema Experience in home movie menu buttons

Today's nightly build for Win doesn't have a problem with recently added. ThEy moved the recentlyadded script to the XBMC core a couple of days ago, perhaps that's what causing your error

EDIT: oops...note to self: read more carefully next time, answer not relevant to your question :-P

Disabled the Cinerma experience addon and uninstalled it, now I can enter directly to the movie library. Thanks for the hint.

I wonder what the error in the script that was causing the problem.

Sorry ronie for jumping on this thread, just trying to catch any errors with the script..

I have 3 seasons of this show:
http://thetvdb.com/index.php?tab=series&id=80998
This show has season banners for each season.

you shouldn't have to do anything, the skin shows them by default.

do they turn up in other skins?

Making clean re-installation (database deleted) of Xbmc did the trick. Now, I get the right season banners of the Tv shows.
