I have installed raspbmc XBMC on Raspberry Pi, and try several skins. There is an option in the skin setting menu to run a playlist at startup. However, there is another setting called the "startup window" and I have to select "Home Window" in order for the movie to appear automatically when powered up. But the home menu is always there when the background is playing the movie. Is there a way to go directly to play video without showing the home menu?
