    I can't see the point in your post ? the skin is no where near complete which is plainly obvious if you follow the thread :rolleyes:

    I agree, that KODI has some interesting skins with lot of features. But for me this is also the problem. With too many features, informations, options one can easily loose the overview. I felt with all KODI skins overloaded.

    Apollo One is very lean and clear. I also asked in the beginning about fanarts in the background etc., meanwhile I'm convinced, that those features are not necessary :)
    But of course there are missing features in Apollo One. Since it's in deleopment they will come step by step. Introduction of DX11 means also, that lot of nice effects can be added.

    PS: Maybe you are not native english (me neither), but it was hard to get your message. Would be better being more precise next time

    Hi.
    I have some more suggestions (better wishes) to implement.

    First. Is it possible to show season and episodes numbers in EPG like it is possible in MP1 EPG? I'm really missing this in MP2.

    Second. Is it possible to have a list of upcoming scheduled recordings? We only have a management for schedules series recordings, but nothing for the upcoming shedules...

    Third. Is it possible to reduce the columns in Grid view by one to get a bit more space for the Fanart. As it is now there is too much cut of at the sides for my taste. At least when it gives a "Fanart-" Theme for Apollo One as the actual fanart is a interim solution until "favourites" are ready. For me the temporal solution with fanart instead of favourites is definitely the preferred one...

    I can provide screenshots or mockups if my wishes are not clear enough.

    I'm afraid I can't work on TV part directly next weeks. But I get your points...

    The width of grid and right cover is only a constant value that can be overriden by a theme.

    Yes, good idea! It helps to keep track of ideas and wishes. Maybe place them into a new thread?

    I will do some screenshots (examples from MP1) and mockups later the day. I can start a new thread then if nobody else has done it before.

    Your first two points are more core features than skin features really, the season and episode info in tvguide would go in next to the title like in tvseries if available.
    Third point like Morpheus says will be themes eventually but i get what your saying about the fanart, it was never designed to be for fanart originally which is why it's not been changed yet.

    Exactly Apollo is designed to be lean,clean and more modern in design, most kodi skins are overcrowded or recycle the same skin over and over.
    Experience 1080 is the only kodi skin i like but even that is not new.

    Can you also attach the images for the list view style ("eye")?
