Hoping someone here can help me out. I set up my HTPC a long time ago with a customized 7MC and media browser. I recently had an issue where I had to wipe my computer clean and start over and lost some of my backups. I am trying to get setup how I previously had it as that worked well for me. My questions come in as I am trying to apply the same customizations that I had before. I am using media center studio to modify 7MC. It allows me to change the start menu strips and add different buttons but it will not allow me to modify anything to do with the theme. I have tried creating my own, downloading others created themes and applying them. I have tried using MCE Reset Toolbox. Nothing modifies the background, font and general appearance of 7MC. It is acting like there is another folder stored someplace else that is overwriting anything that is stored in the normal location that the theme data would be. Has anyone run into this that can help? Also, the theme that it has defaulted to that will not go away does not seem to be the original. The background is still a blue fade, but it has off white muted tree or flower branches that accent a couple areas and the text shows up in a bright green. I don't know where it came from, but it will not let me get rid of it. I have tried the "work around" stuff as well with no success. Like I said, it worked to allow me to modify the start menu, but not the theme appearance.
Also, on a related but separate note. I re-loaded classic media browser to display and run my movie collection. I would prefer to use this and set it up how I had it, but it looks like it was updated and the classic does not have the same functionality. Is there anyplace that still has the themes for media browser that I can download and add? I don't remember which one I was using, but I know that it at least came with one (chocolate I think) and that it no longer accessible through the program. What are my options if I want to stick with classic media browser?
