    Hey all,

    2010-02-04
    First PREVIEW,
    just put all the files in one dir, and open up the html file to have a look, and provide some feedback, thanks!





    Would appreciate some suggestions or desires, maybe after
    awhile if there begins a trend of suggestions, I'll put up a poll.
    Please lmk what resolutions you BROWSE at, ...wide or 4:3, etc

    If anyone has alternative "layouts" you'd like, lmk as well.

    Well if your going with 4:3 then 1024x768 is probably reasonable. 4:3 is gonna be outdated soon though.

    Is there any way you could reuse graphics from existing skins? For example they all provide various tvguide_*.png, background.png, various button png's etc.

    That way users could setup their web interface to look like the native TV Guide, this integrated look would be a great addition to the user experience.

    Cheezy, thanks, I'd seen that file in StreamedMP but didn't realize that all skins have a similar thing, I'll get a few different skins and mess around, very cool, thanks!

    Personally I think this needs to work on netbooks and laptops, so you can't forget about smaller resolutions.
