    Great video. I'm showing this to a friend to give him an idea of why I'm building my HTPC.

    Which theme are you using? It looks a little like StreamedMp which is what I'm using but different.

    And if you could maybe please explain how you got Huludesktop to work with multishortcut. I can't even find the executable file for hulu. Its driving me bananas.

    How do you configure your skin to have the menu in the middle?? Mine is off to the right-hand side with StreamedMP.

    Also, where did you get your Hulu background?

    wicked nice setup; hopefully I'll have enough patience and time to tinker with mine to get some similar effects :)

    I'd be grateful if you could post a quick rundown list of the plugins/addons/3rd party, if any you used that were "advertised" in your video.
    (dont worry about hyperlinks, don't wanna take up your time, and google can usually find em pretty fast XD)

    thanks.

    I didn't use the BasicHome screen. and I made the Hulu background myself.
    in the General Tab in MP config, there's a option that you can use the Dynamic refresh rate changer to change the refresh rate according to the material.
    I'm using StreamMP skin along with MovingPicture, MP TV-series, TMT's MediaCenter plug in, MultiShortcut (for Hulu desktop & BeyondTV), and MyNetflix.
