noob question: change genre icons
« on: August 06, 2013, 12:56:18 pm »
Sorry again, guys, Google isn't my friends and the forum search too. ;(
I'd like to change the default genre icons on my Med but I've no idea about how to do it.
Should they be added to the theme skin folder? Can it be done directly on Med? Is it possible to increase the number of genres (i.e. adding more to the existing ones)? How?

User manual turned to be useless about almost everything so I'm keeping asking for your help. :)

Thank you.

No, the problem is often not realising there must be a parent  folder which is skinned.

Does it only work with an attached USB stick? After selecting the skin and rebooting without stick it returned to stock. Couldn't get it to work on my NFS either, after reboot stock again.
