How to change the background picture?
« on: March 11, 2016, 06:39:46 am »
I just upgraded my Mede8er 500X2 box and the background is now a picture with lots of white bubbles and stripes. It is kind of had to read white text on a light background, so how do I change the background picture?
I kind of like the "old" corn field or deep space picture, but anything dark will do.

Thanks.

That is all about skin, which I understand is the user interface.

I am a fairly basic user and don't know about programming. Is there a step-by-step procedure just to change the background picture?

Hi sorensen!
 
ADDING CUSTOM BACKDROPS
 
You can easily customise your X2 by adding your own backdrop image.
 
  • Prepare the jpg image to size 1280 x 720 pixels with max size 500KB.
  • In the X2 Media Library navigate to the image you require.
  • Press the "Menu" button.
  • Select the option "Set to Background" and the x2 will load your new backdrop into flash memory and use it as its default.

You can always revert to the Mede8er original default by selecting the option"Restore Default Background".
