Yes but when it's officially supported by XBMC at least in nightly builds so i can tested and coded.
The available dummy PVR solutions for coding are only for Linux and i'm developing in windows.

That's very good to know. Thank you Nessus.

Nessus, I have a few more questions, I hope you don't mind..
Are you planning to include extrafanart suppport?
What about animated backgrounds?
And finally, I am having the same issues with banners as explained in this post,
Currenty I have set my TV Shows sources up to scrape posters by default. I have a banner.jpg file for each show's folder with the actual banner.
How do I have to rename my banners in order for them to show properly?

Nessus, many thanks for the fantastic skin. I've tried them ALL, and this one (as are all of the Xperience variants) is just beautiful!
Hopefully I can articulate this question correctly. I'm interested in creating a poster view-type in the programs menu that would display the art as 'wide'.I love the poster view for games, but some of those pesky Nintendo boxes are landscape and become squished when using Advanced Launcher. Is it possible to duplicate either poster or poster square and create a "wide" version (as they are for full wall wide)? I've been digging through the xml files and looking around, but thought I'd ask for a nudge in the right direction to achieve this before I dove in.
Any help is appreciated!

In TV Shows the skin expects folder.jpg (thumbnail for every tv show folder) to be banner and poster.jpg to be poster.
Animated backgrounds are supported only when playing Music. Check the Visualization Background settings accessible only from OSD screen.
No plans for adding extra fanart atm. I'm really against all those extra images in XBMC. I can accept some of them like clearart and logo but adding "extra" of that, and "extra" for the other...etc, is just exaggeration.
There is no easy way to make one of the existing poster views to wide. The only thing that you could try is to make ViewType HomePanels which is designed for wide style to show in programs section. Check how i did it with the other views like Viewtype_Posters_Programs (Viewtype_Posters_Programs.xml) and do the same with Viewtype_Home_Panels (Viewtype_Home_Panels.xml).
Thanks both for using my skin.

Thank you for this great skin....
I have been switching back and forth with Xperience1080 trying to decide which one to use. I am trending towards Xperience More. I was a big fan of the original Xperience, and this version has a great number of things that I find missing from 1080... I do not want to spark an argument about which skin is best. I appreciate the efforts of both developers, and look forward to their work.
Things I find missing from Xperience1080:
-When updating the library, there is no pop up status telling you what XBMC is doing
-When fast scrolling thru the Movies in Wall View, missing the pop-up letter that tells you where you are alphabetically
-TV Shows Banner View shows you one banner a a time and banner image is small.
-In Home screen, panels have a start and an end, Xperience More panels scrolling loops.
-In Settings Screens, I like seeing all the options on the left all the sub-option screens
-Weather Icon does not actually show the current weather
Things I like about 1080, missing in Xperience More:
-Love the Recent Movies Screen. I have set XBMC to show the last 50 movies added (in advancedsettings.xml). It is great to see them in Wall View.
I have to say that I am not a fan of MS Metro initiative... thus I disable the Metro view. I know I will be skipping Windows 8 when it comes out.
Many thanks again to all, and hopefully I give both developers some feedback and food for thought.

I found a new default skin for xbmc .
One thing I'm missing in the skin is a watched flag in the files view.
Keep up the great work.
