1 Introduction

Favourites is a simple, but useful feature that allows you to gather a selection of different items into one easily accessible location on the Main Menu. It allows quick access to commonly used items.

As an example, the following items can be sent to the Favourites listing:

Add-ons Pictures
Playlists Movies from the library
TV Shows and episodes from the library Music & Video Sources
Music- Artists, Albums and Songs Individual Files

...and a lot more. Not sure what can be added? Then highlight the item and check if there is an Add to favourites option in the Context Menu.

2 Adding to Favourites

Items are added to Favourites through the use of the Context Menu.

After highlighting an item (eg a movie) the Context Menu can be invoked by:

  • long press the OK key on your remote control
  • Press letter C on a keyboard
  • right-clicking with the mouse

Then select Add to favourites as shown in the image.

3 Accesing Favourites

Favourites are accessed from the Main Menu.

If the Favourites menu item is not visible, you can un-hide it in the settings pages. See: Hiding Menu items.

4 Modifying Favourites

Favourites can also be edited directly in the favourites.xml file in the Userdata folder
