    How about mixing them - the 4x3 grid of banners, with the poster of selected series at bottom left with show description next to it

    By the looks of the results so far, I will possibly create an option in the installer to select your favourite WideBanner layout (But this will only apply to the Default style not the Fanart style).

    I still think the 4x3 Grid layout needs some work, for instance it would probably be better to remove the default background image behind the banners. I can also even add a Poster down the bottom (however the size would be questionable).

    I love how easily i can scroll through the old grid view, I use it and wouldn't even consider changing if given the choice.

    I'd bet almost everyone that uses it now sticks with it solely because it displays the most shows on screen, personally the i way i see it getting better is to show even more banners at once. ie, 4 * 4 rather than 4 * 3

    From the Poll, im going to make the new layout the default. However, if you dont like you will be able to choose a MOD from the setup program.

    There will be a new 5x3 (increase of 3 series per page) and 5x2 Grid to choose from, these will be selectable for both the Default/Fanart Styles. I have removed the 4x3 grid as I think its not needed in this case.

    I can restart the Poll if you think its warranted to include these new layouts.

    You should also be aware that as of TVSeries 2.3 you can create your own views with custom series so I really dont see the requirement of navigating 100+ series in one view.

    ditto! I have 60+ series, the old one makes a lot easier to browse around, but I have to say the new one does look nicer tho.

    p.s. 5x3 is definitely a plus for us!!! and I do like the new poster + 10 series layout as an option too!

    Is there a way to get rid of the series information at the bottom?
    I'd love to have 3x5, but bigger, without the information.

    Any movement on this? I'd love to have 4x3 or 5x3 back!

    They are already in the StreamedMP 0.9 installer. You can choose what you want on the TVSeries dialog.

    Oh, must have missed it. Is there any way to switch to it if you picked the wrong one during install?
