Yes, as I said before as well; No matter what certain opinions might be, you have done a great job and the open source community would be nothing without commited people like you.

haha, well depends how nice it handles squished to 4:3 (initially) - i won't be able to help myself but tweak it. this skin pretty much the decider between plex/boxee for me and quite a few others atm - been drooling over it since the initial fluid screenshots.
plus a nice skin is a good excuse to reorganise the library and track down some nice coverart too, and it's motivated me to finally finish my new mediadb

Looking forward to it Mike and I'm sure it will be fine!
I'm just hoping the humble Xbox can run it smoothly!

It should be able to Geeba...I have a version 1.0 box and it's pretty much as smooth as you want it to be on there.

Mike rough idea on how much memory was left while your running it?
- MikeBeecham - 2008-08-06 11:21
I dont have that information to hand, I'm afraid.
- skunkm0nkee - 2008-08-06 11:43
Geeba, it all depends on what screen you are looking at or what media you are playing. We've done a lot of memory testing and I'm pretty confident that we've ironed out all the memory problems we had initially as I haven't had any memory related issues in the last few months using it on the xbox.

Thanks fellas! really glad your testing on the Xbox and not just the "lob in some more Horse Power to cover it" platforms.

What you will have to accept and appreciate thought Geeba, is that the xbox as a media center is on it's way out...most development now is for Linux, Mac and (to a lesser degree) windows. This is the future.
the Xbox will probably never have enough power to compete, going forward because it cannot handle High Def capably enough. You only have to see the latest implementation of fanart, etc to see that the xbox struggles.
That said, and with the best will in the world, Razorfish (certainly for the foreseeable future) will attempt to create skins that cater for both...EVERYTHING we do has to be for the community, and in a manner that the entire community can use. As long as I have breath in my body, I will not exclude a portion of the community that makes xbox what it is, simply because they do not have, or cannot afford a certain piece of hardware.
Does that mean, however, that we will ALWAYS have the xbox as a media center? No! I can easily see a time when the xbox is defunct, especially in line with the speed technology is moving. However, until that time comes we're going to cater for the community in whatever way is both feasible and practical!
Here endeth the lesson!
