Questions about Icons in STV/Sagetv7 Folder

* If this is the wrong place for this bump me in the right direction please.

Just a couple quick questions about why the media type icons exist in the STV/Sagetv7 folder, why are they there and why not just in the Standard theme folder with the rest?

Are these the fallbacks if the themes don't have them setup correctly?

Also, if I was to overwrite them what chaos would I cause?

They show up in Diamond in certain instances even though all of the images in the theme folder have been updated.

I'm sure there's a good reason, just curious.

Thanks,

Jeremy

Those are not themed images; they are used by the core as default images for each of those media types.

The same/similar images in the theme directory are used by the STV -- you can tell where images are found/loaded from by checking the log from the time when a theme is loaded.

I'll look into whether you can effectively theme them & get back to you.

You can do whatever you like to them on your own system as far as I'm concerned. But please don't make a plugin installer that overwrites stock images (or any other stock files for that matter).

Why do you think I'm asking first, just looking for options

Hopefully there is a way to theme them without overwriting the files, I don't like that option either. I just found it a bit odd when I completely themed all the images in the standard theme folder that I still had default images appearing in the Diamond theme.

Cheers,

J

I just wanted to confirm that the properties for the default media type icons were dynamic instead of read only when SageTV starts before posting this...

They are, so you can add the below lines to your custom theme.properties file. The default theme will always reset them when it is loaded, starting with v7.1.6. You shouldn't really theme them until the default theme update is put out or else people who unload your theme won't get those values reset.

Code:
# Define core's default icons for various media types.
SetPropertyValue/ui/default_bluray_icon=bluray.png
SetPropertyValue/ui/default_dvd_icon=dvd.png
SetPropertyValue/ui/default_music_icon=MusicArt.png
SetPropertyValue/ui/default_picture_icon=Slideshow.png
SetPropertyValue/ui/default_video_icon=VideoArt.png

Thanks Andy, I'll update Diamond after 7.1.6 comes out.

Cheers,
