Actually, that has nothing to do with the dashboard. The xml "rv_home.xml" is for the Home menu not the dashboard.
Alaska may not contain all the xml's, so the dashboard xml may not be in it. But to edit it, you'll need "inc_dashboard_grid.xml". If it's not in Alaska, you'll need to copy it from the OSD to the Alaska theme then edit it.

Sorry for adding to the confusion. I read to quickly and didn't understand he wanted to modify the dashboard & thought he wanted to modify the home screen. The file Tinwarble has referenced is in the Alaska theme.
@Tinwarble, do you know how many files are in the "complete" OSD. The version I had previously downloaded (for the SMP 1.04 firmware) has over 900 xml files & over 1200 image files.

I don't know as I have never counted, but there are quite a few more than are in the GPL.
As I have said, the GPL only has the Legacy theme and only has the images & xmls that it requires, the OSD has everything (at least up to 2.08) that is used to make up the default Mochi theme. With themes, only the portion that's modified needs to be in a theme, everything else will be made up by the Mochi theme.

Perhaps I was confused myself.
Is this not the dashboard? It is titled "home_screen.jpg"
So perhaps it's the home screen, but I always refer to it as the dashboard for some reason.
I wanted to know the XML placement file/text for these icons so I could put a border around the current selected icon - which is always the middle icon.

Well, I can't see your picture yet, but this is the dashboard:
If all your looking for is to put a board around the image, then you'll need to alter the images, not the xml. Besides, there is not a lot that you can do, xml wise, to alter the Home Menu.
Also, you should remember, if you mess up the "rv_home.xml", it will put the HUB/SMP into infinite reboot, and it can be hard to recover from. For SMP users, I don't recommend experimenting with the Home Menu xml at all, becuase if you cause it to go into reboot you may never recover.
Anyway, the images to edit start with "main_" , such as "main_videos_icon_n.png", like I said, if you don't know what you are doing, edit the images, not the xml for the home menu.

Yeah, pretty sure It's the home screen now and not the dashboard.
It's the screen with "videos" "games" "services" "pictures" etc
I was only curious to know the coordinates of the middle icon so I can draw an even border on the backdrop which will highlight the middle icon to show that it is selected. It's difficult to guess in Photoshop! Wasn't going to edit the XML, but It's good to know that I should stay away from that XML hehe.

The Original Mochi Alaska Home Menu mod i created, does have an 'outline' around the center icon.
It was a faint blue color... as seen in the picture link above.
desertwedgie erased the image in his mod (setup_icon_000.png is now a blank image)
but he left the code intact in the rv_home.xml ( <image image="image/setup_icon_000.png" x="0" y="0" w="1280" h="720" bg="1"/>)
The term "Dashboard" is used to describe a "Home Screen" typically for gaming consoles eg. PS3,XB360
On WD Devices the "Home Screen" is the Home Screen.

So if he left the code intact in the rv_home.xml then all I need to do is grab your image from your theme - color it whatever I want and throw it in the image section of Alaska_1.zip I imagine?
