Fixed top post...List rules are no top posts...Thanks....

I copied it from the /usr/share/mythtv/themes/defaultmenu/library.xml to 
~mythtv/.mythtv and modified it.   The added button doesn't appear when 
restarting Myth-frontend.  

Does this mean it doesn't use ~mythtv/.mythtv anymore or did I do 
something wrong.  Does it need to be under the same structure in the 
.mythv directory (themes/defaultmenu)?


It still uses home/mythtv/.mythtv/library.xml....That is the path is 
use.. This is the menu entry i use to call Hulu Desktop...

        <action>EXEC huludesktop %F</action>
