    Hi,

    I had streamedmp installed. uninstalled that and got monochrome 2.5 skin now. The tv series is not displaying correctly at the end of each episode there is overlay and also some numbers and icons appearing which i think are if you have viewed an episode or not. How do i get rid of these or can the new tvseries can work with monochrome 2.5

    whats the button for print screen in media portal so can take a screen shot

    cheers

    I'm afraid I can't help you much with your problem but 'F11' is the screenshot key.

    i had the same problems and ended up having to do a complete fresh install. I only wanted to see how StreamedMP looked and i spent hours getting everything back how it was in the end.

    No help, but just to let you know you are not alone!

    I doubt its TV series its probably a skin/resolution issue.....have you adjusted the DPI? For monochrome all settings need to be 1366X768...
    Normally with a HTPC on a 1080 screen the icons/text are far too small too read from a distance, so an increase in DPI from the display preference makes it easier to view from a distance....

    The mediaportal skins can't handle this and tend to only operate correctly at a specified resolution.

    I suggest you try the default resolution that the skin has been built for and see if it looks OK - remember and clear the mediaportal cache. If that works then the skin can't handle the adjusted DPI.
