    Hi!
    First, thanks for a REALLY nice skin! :)

    I only have one suggestion and that is for MyTVSeries. I have 202 series, so there is a lot of scrolling when we are choosing a series at home ;)
    • My suggestion is to make an option in Settings where we can choose to have many columns and rows in Titan (so it's like the DefaultWide).
    • When I choose 'Wide Banners' in Titan skin I have only 1 column and 4 rows, I feel 'List Posters' and 'Wide Banners' are very alike. Both are a list that you scroll down.
    • In DefaultWide you have 3 columns and 5 rows, so if you have many series it goes much faster to scroll.

    In Titan skin we only see 4 series on one page, and every step down 1 more. So there are 198 rows to scroll:

    In DefaultWide we see 15 series on one page, and every step down 3 more. So there are only 62 rows to scroll:

    EDIT:
    I saw that I got some new likes, so I just want to tell (to anyone who don't know this) that a solution for this is already released. When you have the Titan skin you go (with your remote) to Skin settings (Titan Home -> Settings -> GUI -> Skin -> More Settings -> TV Series -> Banner options). There you can choose between a few different options of columns.

    this would be my main request - additional options for wide banners to display more content. Perhaps stretching to moving pictures too so that the whole of the screen could be used for cover icons rather than the left hand side. Otherwise I like the skin, and the options to customise the theme of it.

    Why not use the List+Posters layout when you have such an extensive library? Or just add the shows you are currently watching to your Favourites list?

    Emph - I am using list and posters but it still doesn't feel as nice to use as the wide banner view with a bigger grid - it's no show stopper but a personal preference and something I have been used to with other skins that its standard on as an option.

    It's still 47 rows to browse with 202 series.
    Nice! But with 202 series, its still 97 rows to browse.

    With (3 x 5) on one page, and every step down 3 more there are 62 rows to scroll.

    How about adding some custom categories to your setup? That should bring your browsing down considerably. I don't know how many users have a series library this extensive though, maybe I'm a minority with my puny collection. :)

    I usually just use the remote to type the first letter of the show I want.
    Pressing 6 one time brings me to M, pressing 7 three times brings me to R. It's a lot faster than scrolling :)
