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

  • Login to the LinuxMCE-admin website on your Core
  • Go to the "Orbiters" page
  • For the Orbiter where you want to use UIv2, do this:
    • In the "UI" drop-down box, select "V2 Normal Horizontal (16:9)"
    • Tick "Use alpha blended UI"
    • Tick "User OpenGL effects"
    • Click "Update"
  • Go to the "Media Directors" page, find the Media Director that runs the Orbiter you selected above and do this:
    • Change "Hardware acceleration" to opengl
    • Change "Deinterlace Quality" to "None"
    • Go to the bottom of the page and click "Update"
  • Find the Media Director again and change the resolution to a 16:9 resolution (like 720p)

After you change the resolution, the X server and Orbiter will re-start and the Orbiter will get regenerated. After this is done, you will have the Orbiter running with the new user interface.

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