    • X-Mas preview added, contains the first public snapshot of Titanium skin! This build works with the MP2 Alpha 1 Autumn-Release. When you try it, remember that this version was adopted in only 3(!) days. It will work, but in places there is a lot more todo:
      • ListView and GridView styles are not adopted to new layout yet
      • For some screens like "Settings" you are required to use the (now hidden) main menu. Access it with right-mouse-click, from keyboard context menu key, from remote "info" key or by clicking the vertical "menu" button on left :)

    Before discussing... Thumbs up for your work already. Once you have Titan ported as a MP1 clone we can take it up a notch to make use of all features of the MP2 skinenigine and kick some real serious skin-ass :)

    RSS could go into the lower blue bar (I think in Titan it is placed there).

    The weather condition could be placed top right to the date time part.

    you are making great progress ;)
    One question: Wouldn't it look much cleaner without the cross for closing the dialog? Normally you use a media center with a remote and not with a mouse, so it would give it a much more cleaner look :)

    I could show it only if mouse is used, so we can have both ways :) Btw, this is one major usability issue in MP1: if you really try to use it with a mouse only, you are lost quickly :)

    Great job!! I like it that MP2 can be mouse friendly and clean for normal HTPC usage at the same time!
    Thanks for implementing my suggestion, I feel quite happy now (y)
    If you finished I will update my MP2 installation and give it a shot :p

  • About The Project

    The vision of the MediaPortal project is to create a free open source media centre application, which supports all advanced media centre functions, and is accessible to all Windows users.

    In reaching this goal we are working every day to make sure our software is one of the best.

             

  • Support MediaPortal!

    The team works very hard to make sure the community is running the best HTPC-software. We give away MediaPortal for free but hosting and software is not for us.

    Care to support our work with a few bucks? We'd really appreciate it!
