Xbox Games section disappears when not connected to the netw

Post by XC-3730C » Wed Oct 05, 2016 9:58 pm

Please see this photo:

As you can see, there is a selection labeled Xbox Games.
I just discovered that if I don't have my Xbox connected to my network, that selection is gone.

Is there any fix for this? I want to move my Xbox into another room where I don't have ethernet connectivity (all my old school systems are there as well).

My retail games are located in G:\Games (no more room on F:\)

What skin is that and where can it be downloaded from?
Asking to have a peek at the XML code.

No worries, I've PMed him for a copy of the skin or the Home.xml to try it on or have a look at it.

Tried it with XBMC4Xbox 3.5.1 and standard Confluence Lite theme and could not replicate the issue.

I found out how to fix it.

In the home.xml, delete this line:

<visible>System.HasNetwork</visible>


My skin is Xbox-Classic

Now all I need to do is figure out how to get the Play Disc option to stop disappearing when I insert a DVD. Once I do, I will upload a home.xml file and share it.

Like everything else it's a visible tag you remove.

Or better yet, paste the xml so us folk who don't have it can do it for you.

Ok here is a link to the xml text:

The "Play Disc" is visible on my XBMC home page, but I can't select it when a DVD is inserted, nor do DVD's auto play when auto play is enabled.

<visible>System.hasmediadvd</visible>

So it's only visible if a disc I s inserts into the drive.

If you want it to always show just delete that visible tag.

As Rocky5 says, according to the wiki:
http://www.xbmc4xbox.org.uk/wiki/List_o ... Conditions
System.HasMediadvd
Returns true if there is a CD or DVD in the DVD-ROM drive.
It is possible that is calculated when the screen is initialized and it might not change afterwards when the DVD is inserted. Probably best to simply remove like you did with the other one.

I did remove that line, but I still cannot select the Play Disc option, nor does a DVD auto play when inserted.

I assume you changed the file, uploaded it, restarted XBMC4Xbox or rebooted Xbox, checked the change is up there and then tried it.

Did you check Settings > System > Autorun media?
