    I tried the latest beta (3 aug) on my 28" widscreen CRT and it didn't really work very well. EG on 'My Videos' the covers just blended into the background as did many of the other screens.

    I was curious to try it as it had been nom'd as the future default screen. I'm sure it looks great on a monitor but not enough contrast on a CRT TV IMHO. I reverted to MCE that I find the most straightforward looking.

    Maybe when a single skin is standardised we need in addition to the 1024x768 & 1280x720 a 768x576 higher contrast version for TV's. That's asssuming there are still a lot of people using CRT TV's. Is there a poll for what display type people who run a a dedicated MP use it on.

    On my side, I like the transparence aspect of this OSD, better than the video OSD which is not so "glossy" (hope you can understand what I mean).

    Bizarre, the pink osd when you change channels is calibration_bar.png! So change it to a better graphic if you like but don't forget to delete all the pack*.* files in the skin folder!

    I would be suprised by that, old CRT monitors have much higher contrast ratio's to modern LCD's & it looks great on my 37" :idea:

    Well specifically the My Videos screen with large icons, there was a kind of white smoke effect on lower part of screen that merged in with the thumbnails on lower part so they could hardly be seen (when dimmed). I have been used to using MCE on TV and did find your skin to be generally quite bright on the eyes.

    re other guy this is on a CRT TV not a CRT Monitor.
