Change the Clock Color in XBMC

May 3rd, 2014 No comments

The white font color used by XBMC’s Confluence theme was causing image retention on my plasma tv (even with a 1 minute black screen screensaver). To fight this I changed the color to a dark grey.

I’m using OpenELEC, adjust the paths as necessary.

  1. Make a copy of the theme, so system updates don’t clobber the changes
    • cp -a /usr/share/xbmc/addons/skin.confluence addons/skin.confluence.gotham.edit/
  2. Edit 720p/includes.xml, under <include name=”Clock”>, change <textcolor> from white to grey3
  3. Change the skin name from Confluence to something else in addon.xml
