II hope that someone can help me, since I have try almost all to display “Libraries” instead of “Genres” in upper left corner of this great skin.
Maybe it is not possible but I surely appreciate any help!

I am not sure if this is a skin issue, but I can't get the HD category to appear in the categories field.
My categories.xml looks like this:
Is there any other place where categories is set up?[/code]

Go into: skins\Unique_BGL_8\skin.properties file
== highdef.differentiate == ` Differentiate between 720p and 1080p. If this property is not set or false, then the highdef.720.width will be used to determine if a video is HD
Same file but:
This is the default page displayed when the index.htm is loaded. This can point to any of the html files created in the jukebox directory, or it may be left blank. If left blank, the default page will be the first category listed in categories.xml which has at least one movie.
Example: To point to the new page, change the value to
Then you start with the New Page!
I hope you mean this kind of settings.

Thanks for your reply.
The highdef.differentiate is allready set to "true"
This is how my skin.properties file looks like:

Thanks för all good job! It´s a fantastic skin and it´s done with a great skill!
I have a PCH A-100, your last update and r1252 of YAMJ and all is looking great. But i have two small issues that would be nice to solve :-)
When i want to change page in the overview i now use the color-buttons and thats works fine, but it would be even better to use page-up and page-down, to just change from page 1 two page 2, but i can´t have it to work. It allways jump 3 or 4 pages. I tried to change the value under "Page jumps" on the Unique Skin Creator with no success. The log says "Page jump value : 1" but when i push the buttons it jumps more then that!
My second issue is more of a design thing. When i have a movie with more then one part e.g. an TV-serie, the buttons and the corresponding numbers are not close to each other! The number 1 is close to the second button and the number 2 is closer to the third button! It´s very easy to push the wrong button when you have a lot of parts.

I am a NMT newbie so please be gentle with me. I have my HDX-1000 setup and running and I ripped two DVDs to ISO and the both played fine when browsing to them directly.
I installed YAMJ and both ISOs will not play. They would not play on the 'stock' YAMJ jukebox/skin when I selected the 'cover art' then 'play' and then I updated to Unique Black Glas as this is the skin I wish to use moving forward and they again would not play (no surprise here).
I updated the firmware and NMT applications immediately via Internet connection before I installed YAMJ so I assume I am using a recent firmware release. Also, since both movies ISOs play in my NMT, I can assume both files are okay as well.
I chose ISOs because they were easy to create using AnyDVD and I felt like there would be no loss in audio or visual quality. However, I have seen numerous people talk about ISO related issues in their NMT and I am considering moving to the MKV format. So, a few questions on MKV and also this skin:
1. For this skin, how does the fields such as audio and video resolution become populated? Does this populate based on information stored in the MKV file? If so, that may also push me toward this format.
2. Do MKV files suffer from loss of resolution or image degradation? What about audio? Do they still pass-through HD audio?
3. If I move to MKV files, which software package is preferred? I was ready to purchase AnyDVD-HD but I can move in a different direction if needed.
4. If I stick with ISOs, any ideas on how to fix my playback issue and also populate the extra tags (audio, video, ....)?
Thank you very much for your time as I know several of these questions go beyond this thread topic.

Is the iso/img playing without a skin?
You are using a 'NETWORK_SHARE' is there all correct?
Wich frimware do you use on your popcorn hour? Some new firmwares have the problem to play no iso..
yeah the iso's work fine, they work fine in your old skin which is what im using currently. the network share is fine i made a new one, its using a brand new yamj folder, so it doesnt conflict with the old one. i had the latest firmware i downgraded recently to fix the dts drop outs, and the iso still dont play

YAMJ creates only a HD index or the seperate 720p and 1080p index!
What do you mean old skin of mine?
Can you post the film.html from the same iso but different skin versions?
The skin version that works and the one that not works.
Both are created with the same YAMJ version.
I take a look at it.
If you change a value in the skin creator you have to press the 'Save settings' buttons. Otherwise the change have no effect.
I changed the pagejump value to 1 and it works.

Now i know how it works I tested it several times and this was the result
:For a three page library it jumps two pages with the value 1 and it jumps one page with the value 2? Strange until i understood that the buttons where shifted (in my opinion)!

This looks like a wonderful skin, however, I do not run Windows, only linux, and I think because I cannot run the "Unique Skin Creator V2.3" application, my images are not the right sizes. The skin essentially works, but all the thumbnails/posters are too large and don't fit right.
Would you be so kind as to explain what the program does to the images collected by yamj?
If you'd could explain in detail what it does, or if you wouldn't mind providing the source code, I'd gladly write a linux application to do the same task for you to include with the skin for others that run MacOSX or Linux.
Thanks for all your hard work on this skin, it's very beautiful indeed!

Hi Mr M, (and everyone else)
Thanks very much for a brilliant skin - I have just upgraded to 2.5 having used 2.4 over Christmas and New Year.
I am still fairly new to the world of NMT but I have been studying hard!
Having just set-up a sabnzbd server at home I would hope to use the "user script" functionality as a post-processing task to update the jukebox once sabnzbd has downloaded, unpacked and deleted the files, leaving a finished file in my M:\Movies folder (samba share on my HDX-100 NMT)
My friend has an almost exact same set-up but he is using a different skin which does not need a separate Windows app - he uses the My_YAMJ.cmd script direct.
My question is this:
If I submit the script "C:\Documents and Settings\James\Desktop\NMT Stuff\UniqueBlackGlas 2.5\YAMJ\My_YAMJ.cmd" (which YAMJ GUI created) then yes it will submit the YAMJ batch script, that's fine - HOWEVER, the ImageMagick job which then tidies up all of the artwork will not be submitted because I did not initiate the script by clicking on the "Create Jukebox" button.
In short - would it be possible for you to create a version of "Unique Skin Creator V2.3 32.exe" which can perhaps have a switch sent to it to do "both" jobs (submit YAMJ and then ImageMagick) via a batch script? This way you wouldn't have to actually "open" the application to click on the "Create Jukebox" button?
I am not sure if this can be done any other way, so I thought I would ask here in this forum.
Thank very much for any assistance you could offer.

You can setup the skincreator with your settings and after that you can run it in a batch with
'SkinCreator.exe auto'. The My_YAMJ.cmd is your job.
Well that would be nice, but this programm is coded with autoit. So, this is not portable.
But you can use Imagemagic on Mac and linux with a batch. Also you need xml and html reading functions.
What do want to do (java app...)? And how many time do you want to invest?

I am familiar with doing _simple_ AutoIT scripts for my day-job But I would most likely utilize Perl to make something that is Linux (& likely Mac) compatible. I would use ImageMagick as you do, and probably some of the XML/HTML libraries available through CPAN to get the job done.
I could devote some time to this endeavor, at least 6-8hrs a week towards coding.
Thanks very much for your reply!

You're a legend mate - it worked a treat! What can I say???
Perhaps your response time for a feature I didn't even know existed should be a little quicker than 14 minutes!!! (Just kidding! I was paying you a compliment in fact!)
Thank you so much, that pretty much puts the last piece in the puzzle, thanks again.
I suppose if you don't mind I should ask you another question that has been bugging me for ages... the fanart for say a 1920*1080 background when displayed on the TV (full 1080p) via this skin is always "zoomed in" - it's like a smaller section of the "middle" area has been selected (like 720 wide) and then if you can believe this is "stretched" to fit the screen.
I can tell just by looking at it that it would look better with the whole image squeezed into the screen.... plus at the moment I don't get all the fanart that I've selected for just this reason.
It's not a deal-breaker but it does bug me.... the NMT is outputting to full 1080P so I'm confused.
To put it in context, the images your skin displays like the box edges and glass look are perfectly rendered and smooth, but the image behind is best described as "blocky" because of the apparent zooming effect.
Would you have any thoughts on this?
