@Malexx, @Butchabay, and anyone else, feel free to incorporate and improve any of my mods in your MOD packs if you want to.

I thought I'd share this little mod, in case anyone's interested. Essentially it's a tiny pop-up window which shows the current time.

Why would you use it? Most of the time the skin shows the current time anyway - yes, but not when in full screen video mode (and I don't want to pause it - I just want something discrete).

Don't you have a watch? Well, no, I don't actually.

Pointless? Maybe.

So here's the code:

Code:
<window id="1234" type="dialog">
    <animation effect="slide" start="0,40" end="0,0" time="250" tween="back" easing="out">WindowOpen</animation>
    <animation effect="slide" start="0,0" end="0,40" time="250" tween="back" easing="in">WindowClose</animation>
    <defaultcontrol always="true">41</defaultcontrol>
    <coordinates>
        <system>1</system>
        <posx>820</posx>
        <posy>680</posy>
    </coordinates>
    <controls>
        <control type="group">
            <control type="image">
                <posx>0</posx>
                <posy>0</posy>
                <width>200</width>
                <height>60</height>
                <texture border="20,20,20,2">InfoMessagePanel.png</texture>
            </control>
            <control type="fadelabel" id="401">
                <description>Time</description>
                <posx>10</posx>
                <posy>10</posy>
                <width>180</width>
                <height>18</height>
                <font>font12_title</font>
                <textcolor>white</textcolor>
                <align>center</align>
                <aligny>center</aligny>
                <scrollout>false</scrollout>
                <label>$INFO[System.Time]</label>
            </control>
        </control>
        
        <control type="button" id="41">
            <onfocus>Dialog.Close(1234)</onfocus>
            <texturenofocus>-</texturenofocus>
            <texturefocus>-</texturefocus>
            <animation effect="fade" delay="3000" end="100">Focus</animation>
        </control>

</controls>
</window>

You'd need to save the file in the skin's 720p folder and call it something like "custom_TimeDialog_1234.xml".

You'd also need to map a key to show it - "XBMC.ActivateWindow(1234)"

I don't think this is a skin issue (sounds more like how the TV is interpreting the signal from your computer) - so you may not get too much help in this particular forum.

However, have you checked the TV settings - often there's some option like "Just Scan" which can stop bits getting cut off.

How's showing your desktop? Check your resolution in system settings or try to calibrate.
