    Add you CBS bumpers in here. Do the same for all your other bumpers.

    so you will end up with:

    Bumpers
    |-BBC
    |-CBS
    |-FOX
    |-FX


    On Channel 101, create a channel that uses "Bumpers\CBS".
    On Channel 102 = "Bumpers\BBC"
    etc, etc

    Hide all these channels using the advanced rules.


    On your REAL CBS channel, give it a rule to "interleave" with channel 101.

    Set the min & max frequency of your bumpers and voila.

    (With a min value of 2, and a max of 5, it will put one bumper ever 3,4 or 5 shows)

    I usually do this:
    First, I interleave an advert, after every video (min = 1, max = 1, start = 1)
    Then, I may interleave a second advert, after every 2 videos (min = 2, max = 2, start = 2)
    Then, I interleave my Bumpers, after every 3 videos (min = 3, max = 3, start = 3)

    The Interleaving rules work from top to bottom, adding and interleaving.

    Here is what your playlist will look like after each interleaving rule:

    Default Channel CBS:
    -How I met your mother
    -The Big Bang Theory
    -Alias

    After interleaving 1 advert:
    -How I met your mother
    -advert1
    -The Big Bang Theory
    -advert1
    -Alias
    -advert1

    After interleaving 2nd advert:
    -How I met your mother
    -advert1
    -advert2
    -The Big Bang Theory
    -advert1
    -advert2
    -Alias
    -advert1
    -advert2

    After interleaving Bumper:
    -How I met your mother
    -advert1
    -advert2
    -CBS Bumper
    -The Big Bang Theory
    -advert1
    -advert2
    -CBS Bumper
    -Alias
    -advert1
    -advert2
    -CBS Bumper


    Do you see how it first adds the first advert after ever 1 show..then every second advert between every 2 items, then the bumper into each 3rd slot?

    Hope that helps!
    Hi. Im really stuck on how to setup the smart playlist as above to use bumpers. Can you please post a more specific guide or post a link to your playlist to see the related code for this setup. Thanks...

    [EDIT] @Keeper the link is down from post #58 ( Here are my XBMC "Smart Playlists" (8KB) (It's just a bunch of .XSP files) (These go in "xbmc\userdata\playlists\video" for OpenELEC. In windows, this directory is located in "C:\Users\<User>\AppData\Roaming\XBMC\userdata \pla ylists\video"))

    Can you please repost these files, thanks mate..

    I've created a nice "channel setup program" that makes it easy to set up channel bouquets
    Installation last night was relatively painless. After the initial install I had no sound again, I was thinking FFS not this crap again. But I found the fix pretty quick on the Openelec forums.

    Added all the tv shows and movies and left it to scrape over night. Tonight I will start with pseudo tv..

    I would love that program if you wouldnt mind

    if you move a series to another channel, it should just change the <studio> tag.
    Positive bud, it deletes everything but the header tag for me.. no big deal, prob just isolated to my setup somehow.. thanks anyway

    Hi,

    I've bought the Harmony 650 remote. I also have wireless keyboard and mouse plugged into the PC.

    I have not yet had the chance to play around with it on my HTPC, nor have I bought an IR receiver for my remote.

    My question is, can I use the IR receivers of the mouse and keyboard to control the HTPC with the Harmony, or do I need to buy a seperate IR-receiver? (ie. can the remote take over from the keyboard & vice versa?)

    Cheers,

    Pretty sure you'll find that your wireless kb/mouse does not use IR, but rather RF ... you'll have to get an IR receiver, yes.

    Anyone know where I can buy one of those cheap remotes with an IR receiver in Pretoria?

    Tried Game, New World and Incredible Connection.

    So finaly, I got a HP Server and now I am starting to put together my HTPC. Thanks Keeper for the idea and all the great info. This weekend I'll be in the ceiling installing network cables. Biggest worry is the price of hard drives. Damn, they are expensive right now! Any chance that they might come down in price soon? Wishful thinking? Thanks to all on this thread for all the great info.
