Theme Backgrounds

I am not a big fan of the stock photo style backgrounds so I made some color coordinated ones that look nice to my eye when you cycle from one to the next due to the built-in fade effect. I have no idea how to make themes so I'm throwing up these backgrounds and you can do what I did and just replace the images in this folder:

Sage/SageTV7/Themes/Standard SDTV/

I'm sure someone will tell me how horrible I am for recklessly replacing default theme images without doing it the official way an explain how to do it right, but then I'll know and we can all move on.

There is a screen shot followed by the zip with the images.

To create your own theme, create a directory alongside the standard theme called MyTheme (or whatever), like so:


Drop your replacement images in there and then choose that theme instead of the standard theme in Detailed Setup > Advanced > Select User Interface Theme.

Basically just do what you did, but in a new directory, instead of overwriting the stock images.

For information on how to package your theme for distribution through the V7 plugin manager, see the plugin developer's guide.
