To enable the version 2 of the Orbiter User Interface (UIv2), do the following:

  • LinuxMCE Admin Website-->Orbiters.
  • For the Orbiter where you want to use UIv2, select "V2 Normal Horizontal (16:9) in the "UI" drop-down box.
  • Tick "Use alpha blended UI"
  • Tick "User OpenGL effects"
  • Click "Update"
  • Go to LinuxMCE Admin Website-->Media Directors.
  • For the Media Director that runs the Orbiter you selected, change "Hardware acceleration" to opengl
  • Change "Deinterlace Quality" to "None"
  • Click "Update"
  • LinuxMCE Admin Website-->Media Directors--> change the resolution to a 16:9 resolution (like 720p),

The X server and Orbiter will re-start and the Orbiter User Interface will be regenerated.

Note about de-interlacing. It is recommended above that you should set it to "None", but if your CPU can handle it you can increase the settings.
