RE: Confluence for xbian
Sugestion:
An option to change video menu when playing a video to the top or bottom of the screen so it does not hide subtitles.

Good work Wink

Kiosk mode is an option which disables the View Options sub-menu (usually accessed from a library page by pressing Left or Up - the menu then slides in from the left of the screen). After setting up the views the way you like them, enabling kiosk mode helps make sure the views aren't changed as well as keeps people from accidentally accessing View Options when they don't mean to.

Have a look at the Confluence-MOD Vol 2 skin for an example (Skin Settings->General Settings->Miscellaneous Options->Enable KIOSK Mode).

Re: Confluence for xbian
this is basic option of the skin Wink
once you add the media into library the Movie menu appears on the Home screen and you can switch between the views

RE: Confluence for xbian
I recently setup my RPi with Xbian and have been teaching my parents how to use it. The problem I noticed when they are using it is, the movie titles and tv show titles text is too small for them to read. It would be great if the text+pictures were a little bit bigger.

Try this link for a tutorial on how to edit the confluence skin:

RE: Confluence for xbian
Certainly acts funny on "Batman" - screen goes blank now and nothing seems to happen. Will wait a while until Beta 1.2 is a bit more settled and try again.

Is the "Show weather as background" work in progress? As it cannot be selected.

Also - I'd like to be able to select what System Info I display. I have no need to see what XBMC release I am on.

I also think that CPU could be displayed (IMHO)- as on the main screen the CPU is correct, it's only when displaying sub pages that it shoots up to 90+% or is my ignorance in skinning showing Smile

I still think a custom xbian background should be the default (Yes I know it can be changed). Something to show it is xbian and not just confluence. I do like the latest Raspbmc. Angel

All in all it's looking good. Thanks for all your hard work.

For the weatherbackgound to work, you have to set an fanart dir at the weather screen.

RE: Confluence for xbian
I've just tested in on Beta 1.2 and there are no known issues.

As the CPU is showing as correct in System Info, I think that the CPU value would be better shown on the home screen rather than the XBMC version

RE: Confluence for xbian
Can I throw out that I would like an "update library" as maybe one of the video sub menu options? I like to use my tv remote (until I can get my usb remote working), and because I have an lg tv, I only have a few buttons, none of which are a context menu. Therefore, it's really hard to update the library. I reboot the pi fairly often, so I'd rather not have it check on startup. And I also have the auto-updater plugin, but it would be easiest to just update after I've copied something to it.

Good one!
Another idea is to map a key to the update library.
