The only way to mod the theme would be to download the theme code and edit it then compile your own dll.

Currently I'm using Pearl theme and just LOVE it! If you havent tried it yet, maybe you should. Its not exactly like Simplicity but it has a lot of the same striped down styling that Simplicity does.

You can also change the skin of Pearl if your not crazy about the white that it uses.
There is a buddy of mine on the MB tracker that has some nice skins for pearl you can download and use. Skins for Pearl 1.0.7 - Media Browser Community Tracker

Thanks for the tip on the Pearl theme, after quickly testing it out it looks great! Just quickly, in the view mode for TV Shows ("Detail") When it displays the cover art for the show on the left and the title of the show on the right, is it possible to include a description of the show below the thumbnail? Also, how do you change the weather location?

I don't think peal can do this in the details view but I know the "Subdued" theme does.

As for the weather, if you run the configuration tool then click on the advanced. In the display tab you can change it there.

My Pearl says that it is expiring on Aug 31. I did not realize it was a trial theme.

Pearl is still in beta status so soultaker has it set to expire so he does not end up getting lots of bug reports on an out dated version.

Just keep an eye on the startup messages at the bottom of the screen and it will let you know when a new version is available.

Yes, first unhide your hidden folders. Then go to C:\ProgramData\MediaBrowser\Startup then place any backdrop you want to see inside and then next time MB is run go to the config options and turn on "Show Fanart on Views" and "Show Initial Folder Background" then you will see the backdrop in the EHS screen.

Sorry if i wasn't clear. Running pearl theme and i do have a custom background on the EHS home screen. I also have the weather properly configured. When i select the weather icon, the pearl theme displays another page with current weather and forecasts. The custom background doesnt show anymore.

i would like to change/add a different background on this weather page.

I've no idea where to post this, but if anyone uses this type of application, can you please tell me if you have any problems changing the Calender, it refuses to move to 2010, even with new pics put in. Its definitely not user friendly.:devil:

cant connect to Youtube from Everio Mediabrowser
I use Everio Mediabrowser to download my JVC videos. I can upload directly to You Tube on it but since I started using W7 (64 bit home) I get an error it cannot connect to Internet. It works fine on my other laptop that runs XP so I'm thinking it is a W7 issue not my software. I had this...
