    System Specs

    Frames is a simple (No plugin dependency and no configuration/menu editor) list view orientated, clear and intuitive skin designed for MediaPortal 1.2.x based on Blue3Wide code and ideas of other skins like Maya and other sources.

    Frames is a grey coloured skin with accents in blue at a resolution of 1280x720 (Displays also nice at 1920x1080).
    All screens are designed in such a way that all information will be diplayed within frames with a limited use of fanart in a uniform and functional way.

    Optional you can choose between a 8 or 10 rows TVGuide/MiniGuide and there is also a possibility to show infotags (MiniWiki) with extra information about menu items and buttons to use (Core plugins only).

    looks good to me, and looks like you are using the same plugins as me.

    Small thing I found after a quick review:

    Music: If you are on view "actual title", the thumb for "next song" is visible. If you change to "song text", the thumb disappears.

    Suggestion for TV (if possible):

    With your frames (program information for the actual program on the left side) there is quite a lot of space; it would be nice if there would be the information for the following program (as in music).

    Anyway, :D for this good looking skin!

    Hi there,

    I don't actually/normally run skins (only use the internal/default blue3wide), but I do like the look and feel of this one.

    I might be tempted to give it a try ;)

    Hi Alfred,

    Thanks for reporting this issue and it is solved in the attached MyMusicNowPlaying.xml :)

    I had also a look to your suggestion and did implement it as you can see in the screenshot. I am not completely satisfied about it yet, but I think it should be simular like this.
