    mmmmm, I do not think it is a skin issue. Your file works here.
    It is not perhaps Vista/Win7 with the VMR9 renderer that is not supported on that platform?

    Hi,

    This is the new basichome menu that I'm working on right now. Not finished and still in an early tage but what do you think? Sorry for the bad quality of the video...

    best regards

    That video is crazy. I think it would be really cool for the skin. How customizable will it be? Could I change the images on the screen for each type of input? (DVD, Movies, TV, etc) Also, I asked a question about r340 and I don't think it ever got answered. I love the non-rounded thumbs for moving pictures, and how they all connect together in the older rev that I have. Is there anyway to keep the corners non rounded in r340? Thanks.

    Very nice Cul8er.
    Personally i dont like those menus because i dont see everything simultaneously. One example of that menu that really works is the PSP and the PS3

    By the way one thing i think would be good is to show the text of left and right object, so that you know where you go. I dont think an image is enough

    Hi Atreides,

    In the new version that I'm working on I have gone back to the old thumview of moving pictures (without rounded corners).

    And yes, everything is customizable from the menu editor. Images, texts and so on.

    best regards

    Hi Cul8er,

    I won't use it.
    Unless you can somehow make it more clear where to navigate to.
    - Put text on the main menus
    - Show texts on sub menu when main menu is selected

    Basically, this would look like an modified/scaled/scrolling vertical menu like the one we already have

    Also, I like skins intuitive and clear so anyone can use it without reading any manual first... (Wife ;) )
    The reason for me not using horizontal menu for instance. There is no clue as where to navigate to get the submenu.
    (Maybe I should report this as an navigation issue.....?)

    I read somewhere you want to put more time in ease of navigation, maybe a feature freeze and concentrate on that?

    :D For the effort you put in this great skin
    :sorry: For me not liking this new menu

    Greetings,
    Flip

    Very cool cul8er! I especially liked the zoom effect on the transition from Basic Home to Moving Pictures at the end of the clip. Perhaps a high quality screen shot will show us how the transparency really looks, as it doesn't look so hot in the low quality clip.

    Emph

    I agree - and do we really need yet another 'basichome'?
    BTW - Still waiting on that modified editor for removing the awful 'zoom' effect that you promised back on September 22nd (just saying)
