    I created this skin with mouse operation in mind, some key gestures might therefore be wrong. Please report back if you find any bugs.

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

    Looks very clean. If I could change just one design aspect, I would make the corners round on the "tabs" that has the page name, like VIDEOS, TV-SERIES and so on. It looks just a little square and stocky in lack for better words. Very nice work.

    I like it - except for the Basic Home, but that's a matter of taste, I guess. (Perhaps I can mod it myself).
    I really like the vertical timeline in EPG.

    Made it like this because I use a mouse, and want one-click access to every item.

    I’m planning to fix the regular “My Home” so you can choose which layout you what.
    Any layout suggestions?

    What a nice job !!

    I will test it asap

    I really agree, everything else is awesome but this homescreen maybe needs a few more colors or contrast ?

    WOW!

    That is a superb skin! and the fact that its 1080p is a bonus!!

    Its not perfect for my needs - but its 99% of the way there - enoguh for me to modify a tiny bit (basic home).

    I use a remote only, so ill let you know if any bits dont work with it!
