Just double checked, I can't replicate neither.
- selected "spring" for background (GUI 3.0 set to OFF).
- send unit to standby then back on using the remote, spring is still there.
- send unit to standby again, flick the back switch, spring is still there.
- no distortion with the icons.
For a custom background, I found a 1280x720 jpg I liked, so I converted it from jpg to png using MS Paint. Is this the way to do it or should I just rename the file from mybg.jpg to mybg.png?
Yup, saving as png is way to go, you might want to pass it through a compressor as well: http://tinypng.org/
BTW, will there be any more updates to Xtraios? I like the Xtraios interface but I don't like the fact that I can't have subtitles turn on by default in Xtraios.
The Xtraios is based on Xtreamer SW2 firmware (untouched except for the things I list in the change log), this got discontinued by Xtreamer at 3.0.12 (which I did port to AIOS at the time).
