    Hi @wizard123,

    I've been using your wonderful skin in my home HTPC set-up for a while now and it's great. I have been playing around with it a little and this is what I've done:
    • Moved the video preview screen to the lower right hand side of the programme description in the TV Guide
    • Aligned the genre key at the bottom with the left hand side of the programme name and description above it
    Both can be seen in the screen shot provided. Moving the video preview has the advantage of being a little bigger as well as revealing the "TV Guide" title and time that gets hidden when the video preview is visible at the top left position.

    I'd like to be able to complete this, including the video preview background still in the top left position of the screen shot included. I know I'd need to update the Home screen, TV recordings etc. but I would really appreciate a list of the file involved, if at all possible. If not, no worries, I'm can try and hunt them down myself.

    What you do think of the changes? Ideally the programme description area would shorten or lengthen depending on whether the video preview is visible or not although I have no idea if this is possible, let alone how it would be implemented!

    Anyway, that's my two-cents worth. Thanks for all your good work...

    Looks good i think homey was doing the same thing, you should post it up in the mod section for others. I wouldnt add it to skin as default purely because it breaks the design flow of video screen being in top left in all screens. The background for the video preview can be found at the bottom of the tvguide.xml

    No, I am not busy and planned to do so. Wanted to finish reading on how to skin so I can edit some xmls first tho :) But yes, usually when I find a new skin or plugin that is helpful I like to promote it.
