    Maybe, maybe not. Currently I just own a CRT 4:3 TV. This skin was primary made for my personal use and I won't make an 16:9 version as long as I don't have any widescreen monitor.

    Hi mikael, let me throw this idea at you... If you were to create a 1280x720 backgound graphic(s) and 1280 wide OSD graphic(s), possibly a few others, anyone could the moify the xml files to make it 16x9 compatible ;). If it's too much for you to do then don't worry, it's only a suggestion ;). Keep up the good work.

    Of course I'll do it if anyone is interested of making a 16:9 version!

    I can make the graphics if someone else can make the xml's. Hard for me to see if it works since I don't use any TV-card...

    Yes mikael, please do.. if no one else is willing I will attempt to create the TV screens, though it may take a little while as I haven't any experience in skinning MP yet.

    Also on my system I noticed that I can't get into "Now Playing" in My Music with your skin.. is that just me or is this something you know about ?

    Cheers!
