    This skin is made with a 1920x1080 resolution. Rescaling is to other resolution might distort it.

    When installing new plugin MPI files remember to deselect “Black & White 1080”, all skin files for supported plugins is included in this skin package.

    Updated for RC3 SVN 31.10.2008 or newer.

    Thanks, I'll update my system this weekend and let you know of any bugs!

    EDIT: actually I wont... as I am not on RC3 yet - waiting for 1.0 until I update the main HTPC! And my dev system does not have a 1080p screen :)

    Hi,

    I recently discovered this skin and I really like it.

    Maybe you can have a look at the following issues:
    1. The up/down arrows are not visible in Filmstrip mode. However, they work.
    2. How can I navigate to the menu (e,g, Layout, Sort, Switch View...) inFilmstrip mode with the remote?
    Arrow up works in other skins, but not in this skin.
    3. When you enter a module (e.g. Music, Pictures,...) in the basic home menu and go back to the basic home menu, the focus is always reset to the first module TV. Is it possible to set the focus instead back again to the previously selected module?

    Thanks for all your effort and great work.

    In Tv series plugin, the logos in the top right corner of the screen actually goes off the side of the screen.

    Also in recorded TV view, there are no descriptions shown when you highlight a show.

    Nice work! Thank you for this nice skin!!

    However there is 1 thing I'm missing, an exit/close button. Is there any way to (manually) add such a feature?

    The topbar plugin contains a shutdown and a exit button:

    You need to enable it in MediaPortal Configuration:
