@Maxoo - you are right now I look closer. Nice find!

@tree_jammer - I know it's a alpha release and you know about the most obvious bugs, but here are some things I noticed from sections that already look pretty finished. That's why I decided to report them:
I think it would be better to display the season posters in a continous strip instead of a 5col grid, so that you can browse all seasons from left to right and don't have to also scroll up/down (one doesn't expect this seeing only one line of posters).
movie panel, music panel
browsing the poster feels a bit awkward, having to navigate left/right and up and down. Would be cool if there would be a automated "line jump" once you reach the outermost poster of a line. So that when you continously press left/right you automatically browse the posters line by line. But I think this might be a limitation in the skinning engine and would probably lead to other navigational oddities (like how to get tot he left menu again)?
grids (home screen, genres)
On the home screen you use some grids, f.e. for the recent movies or the settings. There are some visual glitches with those:
To simplify the UI a bit, I think you can remove the buttons for "refresh", "get thumb" and "get fanart" from the info panel view and "hide" them behind a "edit" button. Gui should only show frequently used options and "hide" the advanced features from average joe. But that's just my personal taste - feel free to ignore it

Open up the DialogButtonMenu.xml in notepad++. Then look for
Quote:<control type="button" id="3115">
Quote:<onclick>XBMC.Quit()</onclick>and then save. Reload the skin and the shutdown button will now only exit out of xbmc instead of shutting down windows.
Hope that helps

Just as a heads up the login.xml doesn't work, so you are stuck at a blank screen with no means to log in or change the skin to be able to log in.
I had to replace the login.xml another skin to get xbmc to be functional.

HOLY BANANAS BATMAN!!! Ive been a long time lurker (3 years and counting), and I've been fortunate to have had this community help me out tremendously, albeit indirectly. I have been watching this skin's progress the last couple months and just downloaded it today, and am currently taking it for a test drive and i must say, this is one helluva skin here. it is by far the most polished peace of work i have seen and i get goosebumps thinking about where XBMC will go next.
just wanted to say thanks to tree_jammer and everyone thats a part of this great project.

I found this strange too. Hopefully it's on the list of things to do.

I have to say your music Visualization is the most innovative and impressive I have seen on xbmc. I also like your different color schemes.
There is only one View for each rubric (Movies, TV Shows etc.) at the moment or am I missing something?
Keep up the good work. Can't wait for the release!
