    This skin is made with a 1920x1080 resolution. Rescaling is to other resolution might distort it.

    Because of changes in basichome, custom screens have to be redone.

    Again - Thanks!

    Have there been any big changes to the Basic Home since the 0.7 Hotfix 2 release? ( see this )


    EDIT: Just saw the comment at the bottom of your post - "Because of changes in basichome, custom screens have to be redone." - is this for 0.7 to 0.8 or also 0.7 H2 to 0.8?

    Nice Job! This Skin is still my favourite one and progressing a lot...

    What i'm really missing so far are just more templates for mytvseries, like in spinsafe, with one focused on fan arts because with the default template they are just all covered up by menus; and mediainfos information + logos on tvseries episodes.

    Thank You again for your hard work! ;)

    Just tested the new version. Looks good, but there are some new bugs:
    1. @TV-Guide when i change the day with the mouse, or click on a channel the guide closes and nothing happens.
    2. @TVMiniGuide When the program epg is too long it overlays with the channel name.
    3. @basic Home When i go on a button with the cursor the tv-preview in the left corner starts flickering.

    aj1405, Its perfect!!! thank you for your creativity and hard work. Its very much apreciated. Its great quality

    I read your looking for new and fresh graphics for a new skin. sugestion: maybe low profile animated gifs/pictures? Glowing things... I Cant help you on that, but I can promise you that another great skin from you would make choosing between them extremely difficult for me... :)

    Again, THANKS! :D

    1 & 3: I'm having problems reproducing your problems

    2:
    Text 1 = Next program
    Text 2 = Channel
    Text 3 = Current program

    Usually you have it displayed like:
    Text 1 - Text 2
    Text 3

    But this does not make any sense in this dialog. I have therefore changed the design to:
    Text 3 - Text 2
    Text 1

    This results in Text 3 and Text 2 to overlap. This is MediaPortals fault since it only crops Text 1 and Text 2.

    Atm: I don't have a solution for this

    Thanks

    I'm not going to create a new skin, but I want some new menu graphics for B&W. It's really hard to find high quality pictures that are not copyrighted...

    I'm thinking about something like this:

    Personally I am not a fan of real life or multi color icons for menus. To me it makes the interface look cluttered. I will have a search for some though.

    OK, how about
