Windows 7: MediaBrowser Questions

MediaBrowser Questions

OK guys I got mediabrowser setup pretty nicely I really like it so far, pretty cool =P i made an icon for it downloaded the shortcut and everything and pin'd it to my bar.

Now there's just a few changes I wanna make to the whole operation =P

1. The time, in the top left it shows "London" but I'm in California lol and I cant find the freaking option to change it and I've been searching for quite some time, so I'm sure its some really easy fix I'm just missing.

2. When I click my shortcut is comes up with the "Windows media Center" intro and I was wondering if there was a way to change that or get rid of it so MediaBrowser would almost act as if it was its own stand alone program.

3. How do I change the background to the main menu for it?

Thanks and please get back to asap!

I don't see those doing much to begin with, but if you read the Changing Media Center Background / Themes sticky, I asked for a personalized one using the movie theater image as my default BG.

now my WMC looks like this:

EDIT : Ok guys I figured out howto start up my media manager without the windows media center animation in the beginning I had to do is add this -

/nostartupanimation

In the target box for the shortcut at the end and now it doesnt show at all =P Also along with finding this I also found some other secret startup codes courtesy of hack7mc-

/nostartupanimation – disables the startup animation
/noshutdownui – removes the shutdown item from Tasks
/mediamode – start in “media only mode” with no minimize/close buttons
/widescreen – force widescreen mode
/nochrome – launch windowed mode without the containing window
/playallmusic – Play all music at startup
/playfavmusic – Play favorite music at startup
/playfavslideshow – Play favorite slideshow at startup
/playfavslideshowwithmusic – Same as above with music
/playslideshow – Play all slideshows
/playslideshowwithmusic – Same as above with music
/screensaver – Start media center in screensaver mode
/configuress – Start media center at configuring screen saver menu

There they are, hope you guys enjoy em and Like i said all credits goto Hack7MC wonderful site dedicated to just working with media center!

Thanks a bunch Hack7Mc!

Hmm maybe your not getting what I'm saying =P I dont go through WMC to get to media browser i use a direct shortcut on my desktop. So you know when you open Windows Media Center it comes up wit hthe little intro with the sound and it say "Windows Media Center" and stuff well I wanna see if i can replace that or get rid of it. Also my last thing was how do i change my background to MediaManager not windows media center.

Go into the C:\Program Files\Media Browser\Media Browser\Application.png

Change the Application.png to any png you would like to see.
Here is some you can use if you like.

Just rename the old one and name the new one Application.png and your set.

Sorry I didnt see you asking MB "Q"'s sooner, You would have gotten a much faster answer inside my MB thread.

OK Are you talking about the MB home page?
If you are you can drop a backdrop.png inside the
C:\ProgramData\MediaBrowser\StartupFolder\Backdrop.png
Again Here are some to choose from

That is if I have the right thing this time!
