I've been playing with the XRecord skin (both the community skin 3 and the beta CS4 HD skin) and have 2 questions (I assume the answer would be the same for both, but if not...I eventually plan to move to the CS4HD once all the bugs are worked out.
1. I see that the skin is pulling images both from ...\gbpvr\media\art\ and from my recording directory...in that order. Is it possible to set the skin to look for images in the recording directories first and only use the media\art\ path if it does not find anything?
2. In the Recordings "plugin" I can skin it to show both 4:3 and 16:9 aspect images without distortion by using:
fixedAspectRatio="true" align="center" valign="center"
on lines that specify the size/location of the images. I have set the size of the image such that it is 16:9, but using the above code any 4:3 image display such that they fill the height of this space and the width is scaled properly to maintain the aspect ratio (i.e., there is some unused space to the left and right sides as the properly scaled image is centered). I tried adding these commands to the lines specifying image size in the XRecord skin, but it has no effect...aspect is automatically the same as the size of the image regardless of the original aspect of the image. Is there some way to make the skin preserve the aspect of the images or would this require coding changes to the plugin?
