    Another Skinning question - Ready Recordings bar

    In the image below for reference, is there a way to move the "Ready Recordings" bar down, within an xml file? I have not been about to locate it as of yet.

    It's in the recordings2.xml file:

    Code:
    	<Element name="SelectedList" location="0,87.44" size="100,4.64" alpha="255">
    		<Rect location="-1,0" size="102,100" fillColor="BaseColor2"/>
    		<Image source="..\_Common\Left.png" name="ActionLeft" location="35,15" size="2,70"  fixedAspectRatio="true" valign="Center"/>
    		<Image source="..\_Common\Right.png" name="ActionRight" location="63,15" size="2,70"  fixedAspectRatio="true" valign="Center"/>
    		<Text text="@selectedList" location="0,0" size="100,100" font="Default" align="Center" valign="Center"/>
    	</Element>
    The "87.44" is how far down the screen it is.

    Perfect, thank you.

    Below is the end result. Now to work on the metadata side. Font size approved by wife, so that's as small as I can get.

    I like it, too. You could make one of your copies a post to the forum to share with others.

    This is a very good point. I'll add this, and all other xml files I've messed with, to my daily backup sync.

    I like it. I could see myself using a skin like this to make better use of available real estate. (subject to the wife being able to read it...)

    I've done the opposite and made the fonts bigger with less items on the screen ( getting old and eyesight not as good as what it was ). To stop it being overwritten on updates I renamed the skin to "Magoo" and selected it from Settings.

    Great idea, about making it a new skin. "Magoo" is such a great name for that type of set up. You've done it again! Maybe I'll name mine InformationOverload or WallOfText.

    I'm trying to figure out what can and cannot be added into the metadata area of recordings2.xml. I've tried adding randomly found potential fields seen within the NextPVR.exe, as well as other default .xml files, but there must be a better way to determine ehich parameters work. For example, the database uses unique_id for long episode names, and I would want to display that within the metadata. I also want to add the channel number but haven't figured that out either.

    Any insight would be very helpful.
