So I tried to upgrade from Beta 2 to the official release of XBMC but once I install it and try to run it, I get an error saying that a .dll is missing. WTF? I downloaded it again and I got the same results. So I installed Beta 2 again and everything is back to normal again. Wonder what's goin on?

To anyone that use Horizonz, are there any features that you want to see in the next release? I've been working with the head guy on this project and want to hear from the community. Post em here!

I also got stuck there, until I realized what was going on. When you're at the home screen, the up and down arrows move you between settings, regular usage mode, and power stuff, while left and right move you within the section. I love this theme.

Oh and I just finished mapping my MCE remote using EventGhost. Is that the program you were thinking of six_storm?

just two things would make this skin a lot better.

1) an easier way to tell what mode you are in, so people don't get lost again

2) wide icon support, I have all my TV shows set up with wides icons, to much work switching over

edit: added few things that need to be done

3) need to add better font, current won't display certain forgein characters

4) need to add notification which clips have been watched already

5) back (up) and all seasons icons need to be different from other non-thumbs icons

Hey do you know how to get 5.1 audio to work? All of my movies and tv shows that have 5.1 audio tracks but only stereo is being output. I'm using analog btw, not digital out. I read some stuff about making an advancedsettings.xml file and enabling it in there....but it doesn't do anything.

I'd like to know that too. I'd love to get the output to all channels to work for music. My fav thing for XBMC on Xbox.

Awesome, I'll post them up on the XBMC forums and share them with that community.

So you were stuck in the settings huh? Haha, I can vouch for that, I was stuck there too. Also, you can tell what mode you are in by looking at the lower right hand corner where it says "Setup Menu". I believe that's what it says, I'm not exactly sure off the top of my head but I know it's there.

einstein_314 - No, it's not EvenGhost. It's just "IRBlaster" or "IRMaster". Something like that. I'll have to dig it up.
