btw, you should also check out those downloadble woodpanel skins. They're at http://www.myhometheaterpc.com/downloads . It's the 8MB zipfile.

Even if you don't use/like them, you'll see how to use widgets to get stuff done. Chapter 2 of the word doc talks you through setting up CQC/ZP/etc to do media mgmt and weather.

Flying through the tutorial but I need a break to rest my eyes. amost through the user interface.....

One thing I would suggest to Dean is to separate all tasks from discussion and highlight the tasks in bold print.

ie.. the following is hard to follow in terms on executing tutorial tasks....


Quote:The first thing we'll want to do is to just create a widget. So, somewhere in the upper left part of the drawing area, right click to pop up the menu. Select New, which will expand out to offer a list of available widgets to create. Select Dynamic Text. This will create a dynamic text widget at the point where you clicked. It will have some default text of ????, just so you can find it. Otherwise, without any text to display, it can be hard to locate. Make it a little wider by putting the mouse over the right edge and dragging it out to the right.

It should have the tutorial tasks summarized and easy to follow....

1. Pick a location in the upper left corner
2. Right click to pop up menu
3. Select New
4. Select Dynamic Text



Other then that the tutorial is quick and breaks down the software quickly and easily.
