    9-in-one

    The above is the best skin I've made so far for
    MediaMVP! I've layered the skin so it looks better
    on CRT, LCD, DLP and Plasma. Temp and Web
    now have 9 entries each. press down on the
    arrow key and that will give you the full button
    image to your right plus press ok gives you direct
    access to setup (settings) I've changed the code
    reprogrammed a lot of features into too better ones.

    Features:
    New Menu controls <left navigate right > /\ \/ for setup
    Direct access to Setup - configuration
    9 direct access plug-in
    9 listing for videos, music, radio, web, temp
    12 thumbnails for photo (former pictures)
    Web (internet)
    Temp (weather)
    Help (help)
    Setup (former settings)

    Requires: Hauppauge MediaMVP (Network Media Player)

    07/01/08 - Update

    07/01/08 - releases

    What's New!

    1. Fixed the fonts/frame in videos, music, radio, web, temp, photo, sched, help, setup So everything looks neat and fits right in side the image instead of bleeding over the graphics.

    2. Fixed Music ID Image that's always been eye saw, as it always been static blue, not anymore. Images uses are going to be standard, save time for me to make newer skins. OSD for TV and the popup menus will be the same trans-black look.

    3. All New Popup Menus and Popup Music Menu all graphics are completed.
    4. Fixed Radio title display so you can now read what you have selected.
    5. Everything that was need to be updated or fixed...

    New! MVP (Vista MCE) Skin Theme Replacement Versions with Internet Browser

    [​IMG]
    I am currently building this theme based on Vista Ultimate MCE! -

    It's still under construction everything will be complete with all new graphics! I had thought it would be ready for tonight but not yet...
    What you see might change in the quick shot from live TV shot. Gone is Browser title it will now become Internet for one thing.

    Coming Soon here in this thread.

    First Vista MCE skin theme using some new tricks!


    Right now you can try out this new design it's completely different than my prior skins for MediaMVP.

    I've added transparent features, additonal color for items, the main menu works a bit differently than prior as you'll soon see. Full 9 items are now for quick access. Remember the menu uses the left and right arrows and the items will only appear and disappear when you choose the time you want or not. The default item is videos (video library). To access setup you have to press either up or down arrow. When you do the image you see above will appear.

    This is going to be a beta release, as I am still working on the theme. I going to see if I can get my hands on the underwater images I would like to implemement that into this theme or use another image. I did try the large rocks really look great on my LCDs and HDTV. But then I'll have to change the text color otherwise you just won't be able to view the text on the screen.

    So the image use is the same colors as in the VMCE as close as I could get it right. The clock is here also, but not shown and it lined up correctly. The Videos (video library is the only plugin that has the latest colors. The rest are using white only text. That will change by next week or sooner.

    Enjoy this sneak peak..

    Download v0.10B here:
    mvp_vmce010b.exe - FileFront.com

    Download v0.10B Image Patch for those using the most current beta version for MediaMVP.

    I had got luckly today and came up with this, as the main menu background is the same underwater theme used in Vista Media Center. I am actually testing it on the MediaMVP as I type this out. Button selector is as close as I can get to the orginal button. I might just ditch the scheduler feature if many of you out their don't use it. Save some space on the main menu for me though! Clock is up their just not in this post design screen layout.

    This would replace the prior screen you see, I do now have the original Vista Media Center Background, but this one looks better on the MediaMVP more like a underwater fish tank on your TV. HDTV looks really good. Check back soon I'll release next version soon...
