skyNEW Skin Modding Thread

View attachment skyNEW.zip

I have made some amendments to this skin to fix a few issues reported and to add a few things too

* removed duplicate Channel numbers on Infobar (as in post #58)
* added ecm info to Sky default 2nd infobar
* resolved the flashing Record icon on all screens
* EPG Tabs now work correctly on both Default and alternative options (new epgselection.py file needed for OpenATV 6 see woosh post #4 below)
* changed the volume indicator bars to that from Slyk skin (thats to kiddac C for that)
* changed the spinner to a slightly larger version
* number zap box moved to lower left corner and fonts adjusted

maybe a few other things i amended, but here you go, just ftp the unzipped skyNEW folder overwriting the original folder (maybe rename original folder before to have backup)in /usr/share/enigma2 directory

The post 58 referred to above refers to Chabs' original skin thread here >> http://www.techkings.org/openvix-openatv-skins/114388-skynew-skin-7.html

K thanks I have the tabs working with openatv 6.0 and SkyNEW 1.004 will give yours a try later on.
One other thing I Can't sort myself is change the EPG screen I wanted to change what's on later to skygold and keep what's on now to white.

Moved to a thread of it's own as I think what was achieved with the slyk modders thread was really quite good and specialised in it's own right, and also to leave Chabs' thread for his own work.
I believe he has family overseas and has had a family emergency, and will be back when he can.

A reply to this thread: http://www.techkings.org/openvix-openatv-skins/118995-timeline-bar-epg.html#post673233

Just a thought - this uses Chabs' default sky NEW skin.xml files but with working EPG tabs. If you have used boobishabag's mod above, you will need to merge the time line into his modded xml files. actual line to add and approximate location below

Johnny3Voltz asked for a timeline to be added to indirectly Chabs' skin. I have created a simple yellow bar with drop shadow for use on both the skydefault and skyalternate layouts. You can edit the image file to suit yourself, colour etc.

1_0_19_1B1D_802_2_11A0000_0_0_0 (3).jpg

1. Set the skyNEW skin to SkyDefault using Chab's plugin

2. Copy the xml files to:
/usr/share/enigma2/skyNEW/
replacing the exiting files

3. Copy the timeline-now.png file to:
/usr/share/enigma2/skyNEW/epg

4. Restart your box.

Added

<widget name="timeline_now" position="60,340" zPosition="2" size="16,282" pixmap="skyNEW/epg/timeline-now.png" alphatest="blend" />

to
skin.xml - line 6041
skydefault.xml - line 6041
skyalternate.xml - line 6852

----------------------------------------------------------------
I didn't like the yellow one, so made a faint, grey one. You can do anything you like with it.

So the .sh files included with Chabs IPK no longer work? I know you need to add the cron timers yourself, but thought they worked ok?

Hi bud, i dont really use picons other than showing in history zap, where do you not see them anymore? on the infobar? the sky alternative skin has them there, can be loaded through plugins

Hi mate. Yeah just in the info bar they seem to be there on the epg.I'm not really that bothered about them now. As I like this skin.

You need to use Chabs' plugin to switch layout. Default layout has no picons on the info bar, alternate layout does.

Because this is a skin mod section, you need to have installed Chab's Sky NEW skin which includes everyhing including the plugin. Then you use this thread to make changes to what Chabs' released but you need his IPK as a base to work from.

Thanks woosh I've been incredibly stupid by not doing that in the first place. As soon as I finish work I'm on it.

You need to have Show bouquet on launch enabled in your EPG settings:

EPG -> Menu -> Show bouquet on launch (or words along those lines)
