I think the original poster was wondering how to disable options in
mythfrontend.  He can do this by editing the appropriate .xml files,
but I would warn him to make backups, or copy the existing .xml files
to a new directory.  There was alot of info about how to do this
recently in the archives under another Myxer release thread.

Playing with different graphics, the original poster could/should find
using MyxerCustomizer the perfect solution.  Users can enter their own
graphics that they locate in any 'custom' directory using the
MyxerCustomizer script.

Also, it kinda pertains to the discussion on this thread, but I have
also updated the main Myxer thread too.  (sorry for the double post)

Another Update to Myxer is available.  This time there is no huge
change, but see the following, and pictures at
http://lisadaveh.home.comcast.net/myxer/

1.  Select Icons in MyxerCustomizer now allows you to pick G.A.N.T.
icons (from your installed GANT theme.  (I do not provide the
graphics, just the proper symbolic links to an existing GANT
installation with Myxer-compatible names.

2.  Two new background variations in Version 2 background list
(bluetwo backgrounds, but one has glass around both the menu items and
icons, while the other just has a swirly glass around right icon area)

3.  More new buttons to bluetwo buttons list;  they are really some of
the nicest ones yet.  Check out: Green 3d reflection, Glass
togglebutton, Green togglebutton and Green doublearrows sets. (there
are active and inactive versions to play with on most of these).

4.  I updated the BlueTwo pre-selectable skin to look a little more
like the actual BlueTwo theme from MediaPortal. (Still not quite there
yet)

Hope everyone likes it.  I really just added the linking to GANT icons
per user requests, it was really easy to do.  I really dont mean to
tick anyone off, but since it just links to the existing icons in
GANT, I didnt see any real problem.

Thanks,
