I really like the Retro theme, but have been bothered by the fact that it only displays 5 menu items at a time. I got around this by modifying theme.xml in usr/share/mythty/themes/Retro:

Code:
  <background style="normal">
    <image>ui/background.png</image>
    <buttonarea>100,144,324,352</buttonarea>
    <visiblerowlimit>8</visiblerowlimit>
  </background>

This section is at the top of the file. I updated the dimensions of the button area and then changed the visible row limit from 5 to 8.

I also think this a great theme and the fact that there was only 5 viewable items was annoying me, thanks for this useful tip.

Thanks for this tip: I like the Retro theme and this makes it a lot more useful.

However, it was bothering me that all the main menu items had these nice graphics, but nothing appeared for the KnoppMyth option. So I added the KnoppMyth "tux with remote" graphic to the theme... hope this is OK with the theme designer.

If you'd like to do the same, here is the graphic (a 320x240 PNG)

Save this file to /usr/share/mythtv/themes/Retro/watermark/

Then edit /usr/share/mythtv/themes/Retro/theme.xml and locate the "mainmenu.xml" section of the document. Add this button definition (I added it after the "NETFLIX" button):

Code:
  <buttondef name="KNOPPMYTH">
        <image>ui/button_off.png</image>
        <watermarkimage>watermark/knoppmyth.png</watermarkimage>
        <offset>0,0</offset>
  </buttondef>


Hope people like this. The image isn't exactly how I'd like it but I think it's better than (literally) nothing.

On my R5D1 system updated to Myth .20 I had to change the first line of the code to:
Code:
<buttondef name="KnoppMyth">

With KNOPPMYTH as all caps the image would never show.
