    One thing that I felt right away that I would like is:

    a way simpler (alternative) Basic Home. I can never fill enough of those slots. :/

    + another 1! :D I was looking at it yesterday trying to see if the menu editor would allow me to have 3 or 4 menu titles :D (but no) I guess there would have to be a 3, 4 and 5 menu option with the resulting file distributing the menu items evenly across the screen? I figured I would just tweak the code locally if I have to but would rather not :)

    EDIT: @ Helios61, I see you have the weather & RSS feed info showing on the BasicHome screen - is there a 1.2b compatible version of InfoService available?

    My way of handling the "too many options" deal is to add all my used items into one default menu (#1) and call that one "Favorites". So now I have:

    Music
    TV-Series
    Movies for kids (My Videos plugin)
    Feature Films (Moving Pictures)

    That's basically what I use and what my "Basic needs" are. :)

    Then I put all the Settings in one menu, TV in one menu (I have a pretty bad analogue picture), Pictures/Weather, Games and Internet apps. Pretty obvious that I don't need these extras.

    Emph

    Hi cul8er!

    I have found some more small issues with text alignment and overlapping! Please take a look at the screenshot! One thing more: Could you please add support for MediaTip Plugin?

    Best regards

    Hi,

    Thank you all for your feedback. A new version will be released later tonight. I will contain fixes to many/most of your reported issues (still have some problems with text alignment but this is probably a MP bug on rotated texts) . Will also include a new version of FanartHandler that I released earlier today (bug fixes). Will also contain an option in the menu editor that allows you to have 1,2,3,4,5 or 6 main menu items in basichome.

    best regards
    cul8er

    Hi cul8er!

    One proposal more: The grey font of the results in Sport Results is very dark and hard to read! Is it possible, to change the colour? Screenshot is attached!

    Best regards

    And another - can you include the latest infoservice plugin (for mp 1.2beta)

    #EDIT#
    Just noticed that this skin kills my TVServer timebuffer - I cannot get it to run more than 1-2 seconds before the buffer is filled and the picture freezes.
    This works perfectly using the new default skins.
    ???
