What do you mean about "nano or vim should be included"? Can I copy the edited file to an usb stick (from my windowsmachine) and transfer it to my htpc using the filemanager within xbmc, or do I have to do it outside xbmc? I dont know the codes in linux to ftp it over:confused2:

I apologize my linux "noobness":)

Hi

joeranjensen Wrote:One more thing, if you guys dont mind...

If I want to make more than the three premapped coustom main menu buttons I have to edit the Includes_Home.xml file, isnt that true? Ive done it in windows 7 before, but can you please tell me how to edit Includes_Home.xml within openelectv?

you can use edit the file if you login via ssh (putty) (username: root, password: openelec):

Code:
nano /storage/.xbmc/addons/skin.transparency/720p/Includes_Home.xml

after the changes save with <CTRL>+<O> and quit with <CTRL>+<X>

greetings, Stephan

This starts to be off topic, but I have more questions

I downloaded putty.exe from http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtat...nload.html and installed it on my win7 computer, logged in with user: root and password: openelec, and then typed the code: nano /storage/.xbmc/addons/skin.transparency/720p/Includes_Home.xml.

But then, when I press "ctrl"+"R" (read file), no text is comming up on the screen. I dont know if Ive done anything wrong? I guess I fumbling in the dark here

So I am having the same problem. Confluence cannot find favourites.xml when I try to add custom stuff to the main menu.

That script you posted is no longer on google can you repost it?

I am running atv2 which is a pre 10 so if it got pushed to that, I guess I dont have it. Thanks.

Confluence support is two doors down the hall on your left.

.

it's in the addon repo now, so it should already be installed on your system.
if not, check here: http://mirrors.xbmc.org/addons/dharma/sc...avourites/

@ronie
I tried the script but it still does not work.

When I try to add a favourite, I can put in a title but when I choose select favourite I get an empty screen with an image of a folder.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for your help, realy appreciatedBig Grin

@joeranjensen
How did you get it to work?

When I select the zipfile in add-on, I don't see anything happening.

When I select favourites, I get an empty screen with a picture off a folder
