    Firstly, LOVE the skin.. It's awesome!..



    The only thing I would like to change is the 'now showing' or highlight colour in the TvGuide.
    I find the pale green with white text too hard to read from a distance.

    I've played around trying to find the right place to change the colour, but I can't work out where I need to change it.. Any help would be apreciated!...


    Thanks..

    Hi GagReflex,

    Thank you for your feedback. To change this you need to replace the /media/tvguide_button_middle.png images with one that have the color you like.

    best regards

    What is your setup (distance, TVSize, ScreenRes)?

    I am about 7 metres away on my 47" 1080 and the white on green reads very easy.

    Have to agree the white on pale green is hard to read, so I have already changed mine

    i already change also, because for my opinion the pale green is not suiteable for this very nice skin, because looks like comic style or else.

    Thanks cul8er... All fixed!!... I also managed to squeeze 13 channels in the guide too :)

    rekenaar, currently I sit around 8 meters away from my 42".. (Buying a 50" tomorrow!!).. I was really squinting to see the text, I've changed the colour to a darker green/blue colour and I've really happy with the result now :)

    Hi,

    If you provide nice screenshots and attach your modified images perhaps they can be included in next release;)

    cheers

    Ok... Here are the changes I made..

    • Changed the colour of the 'On Now' item in the TV guide to a darker shade of blue/green to improve readabilty (for my tired old eyes).
    • Changed the TV guide to display 13 channels at once...

    I took proud ownership of a 50 inch plasma yesterday.. X-Factor looks even more awesome now :)
