    hi,

    could you (if you have the time) create a mockup of how you would like it to look like?

    cheers

    I'm quite impressed by this! I really do love bright skins as they tend to make TV's look better. Currently using StreamedMP on the main HTPC, but I will deffinately switch over to this when its finished (or at least contains access to all the plugins I use!). Suggestion though, it is possible to increase the number of channels in the TV Guide? I am used to 12 or 16 and find 8 a little low... Is there anyway?

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Well, I'm pretty damn tired and can hardly keep my eyes open, but here's a very rough mockup with how I propose the elements could fill out the space.

    1. Use FanArt instead of Artist thumb (for greater reliability as thumb scraping is still very much hit and miss, at least for me)
    2. Put the Artist name and quick info like Born, Genre etc under the artist picture
    3. Put the bio on the right side as that's where our eyes go when we see a layout and because it has the most vertical space

    Now I'm going to bed.

    Hello.

    Is it possible to make the thumnails under my videos less transparent, and is there a way to make them in landscape mode instead of portrait? Like the thums in youtube under online videos?

    Also, how do I change the pictures under basic home (using myvideos to display my music videos so would like to have another picture :) )

    I simply love your skins Cul8er!

    I gave the pre a quick spin today on my laptop (no plugins installed). First impression is good. I like the quick response and flow on the home menu. Just a little question: Why isn't the focused item on basic home centred? Wouldn't it look better or is it a thought behind the right placement?
