    This is excellent!
    Regarding the play/pause/rew/ff when media is playing: Are these really necessary? I read that MP2 is suppose to be more mouse friendly, but I guess 90 % ++ (probably got numbers for it in a survey...?) will only use a remote. I really think this is a waste of place and only creates flooded GUI for remote-users. (I also know remote isn't plug-n-play for MP2, so... :D).

    Anyway - have a nice xmas!

    Yes, but I'm not sure if I understood. Will it show - then hide - or just never show if no mouse is used?

    Mouse controls will be visible for 5 seconds after you moved mouse last time. If you never move it, you'll never see the controls.

    Another reason to focus on MP2 :).
    Looking forward to Winter-release - with Titan ...? Give me Spotify support (@seco! :D), subs and pref. a way to lunch programs (webbrowser for Netflix, HBO etc) and MP2 is pretty much much feature complete for me- and with Titan (w/video background?) it is even going to look smashing!

    OK - rambling - just excited :)

    Sometimes it might not be wanted to use flexible sizes, but this can simply be solved by putting in a fixed "Width=xxx". I do prefer the flexible way for now.
    @morpheus_xx - Does MP2 support having a scable width with a max width setting? ... if not I think this would be a good idea. As you might have dynamic content with a scalable width, but you want to prevent the box from getting too large.

    Before the change I had the LeftPanel "on screen", but moved it outside via RenderTransformation (it is done after the Layouting happened). When the focus should be switched, the focus prediction calculated that the button is in original place (without RenderTransform). So moving "left" could not reach the menu button.

    Now I move the panel outside the screen while layouting (margin left -550) and slide it in on opening. Simple. If the old behaviour is a bug should @Albertdecide:)
    Hi morpheus_xx,

    Titanium is my new favorite MP2-skin, since the menu button is fixed and I can use it in completely by my remote.

    As always I found some potential navigation improvements:
    • Would it be possible to slide in the menu OnHover/OnFocus instead of OnClick of the "Menu"-Button?
    • The menu would be visible as long as it is focused. If focus gets lost it kind of an autohide be nice.
    • If the menu is visible the menu button could be disabled, in case the auto hide is possible
    You also missed to post screenshots of the new fancy (un)watched-indicator. :p
