Great! Maybe you can tell us how you did this?

I spotted AZ Screen Recorder - No Root in the last second of this video.

Great video @kodiloaded!

Thank you, but I like to know what build and startup screen he is using?

In his post kodiloaded mentions:

Launcher
Nova Launcher Prime

and goes on to say:

If you would like a little help getting started with your Nova Launcher looking like mine here is a link to download a backup file of my config as well as the Icons pack I am using, Will work fine with free version of Nova Launcher

Not better but just different :) I like that you can add web shortcuts.
On my other devices I use Nova Launcher, but I don't really like it on a media player. You have a lot (really a lot) more options with Nova Launcher, but I just like the simplicity of the layout. It's a bit like the Google TV leanback design (Nvidia Shield). Speaking of the Shield... I use/'like' the Q10 Pro more then my Nvidia Shield 2017. Can't really explain - it'a maybe because It's more 'open'.

You have 2.0.7 running on your Q10?
I often hear that the Shield TV works better than the Q10.
Do you also play series / films via streams with Kodi?

Yes the Shield is a lot faster, games are unbelievable and Netflix/Amazon Video play in full HD - but for some reason like the Q10 Pro more. Maybe because there is a normal Playstore, the Q10 Pro got audio outputs (analog and digital), Imprex Engine, adjusting frame rate not working (MX player) on the Shield and probably the most important reason: I put so much time tweaking and testing the Q10 Pro - it's a shame not to use it :)

I use Archos Video Player for playing movies and series and yes I use 2.0.7

I'm delighted  :)! The ability to create my own tiles and for them to appear on the screen in alphabetical order is perfect!!!

I would recommend this app to every HiMedia user  8).

I use Smart Launcher Pro on my mobile and tablet and it's excellent. But most other launchers, were written for small screens and do not look good on a 50 inch 4k television screen.

This TVLauncher (from Norway) uses tiles like the built in HiMedia 3D launcher. But with TVLauncher you can change the layout of the page, make categories, change the colour of tiles, even make your own tiles (just great an 800x450 image using screen clips or standard company logos, and upload your image to the SD card's Download folder. Then click-and-hold one of the original tiles and select Create in the menu, chose your new image but make sure you give it a name for sorting!)

I started using and I am also delighted  :), What the program gives me more after paying?I miss only Polish translations  :) And more tiles, I do not know if it depends on the region?

How are you using this Launcher? Can it save layouts, like Nova Launcher does? I though we could not use another launcher on Q10/Q5 Pro.

* Change default launcher? In some firmwares (notably 2.0.4) you cannot change default launcher. There are two solutions: 1. http://www.futeko.com/newforum/index.php?topic=711.msg13152#msg13152 2. Install one of the CS custom firmwares, where launcher can be changed: http://www.futeko.com/newforum/index.php?topic=812.0
