MediaStream v0.92 Released (21/09/2008) - skunkm0nkee - 2008-09-21 11:42
The main focus this week has been to address the memory issues that a number of xbox users have come across. A lot of work has been done to separate out some of the richer parts of the skin without diluting the design of the skin too much. The work is still on-going so if you see anything that looks a bit bizarre then let us know
Initially this lighter version of the theme is the default theme so if you want to see it in it's full glory then you'll need to select the Richer theme in the settings.
Over the coming weeks we're hoping to switch it around so that the richer theme will be the default and you'll need to select the lighter theme if you're having memory problems.
As usual you can download the skin from our website, http://www.teamrazorfish.co.uk/mediastream.html
The changes since the last release are as follows:
We really need your feedback so please post if you have any comments, suggestions or feedback and we'll aim to deal with them as soon as we can.
PLEASE NOTE: The skin is being developed based on the latest version of XBMC (T3CH release for Xbox and update to date builds for other platforms) so please make sure you have the latest version before posting about any problems.

[*]Added: New Richer theme (it's not reccommended for xbox as the memory requirements are too heavy for the old girl)

Richer theme will work on all xboxes but once you start using fanart and custom backgrounds you start to notice issues (especially playing videos in library views) on a normal xbox.
It's just a recommendation to use the lighter theme on xbox but at the end of the day it's up to you how you decide to use the skin

I love the new Watched/Unwatched overlays to List view and the animated view.
Just think the animated design need a little transparency or something to the top scroller and get rid of the shadow for the poster or something.
Also, when movie selected the animiation drop it down and in the top scroller remain a hole, can you make it also stay there?
And one last thing...
When a movie is selected the only why to right click on it for menu is in this hole in the top scroller, it's kinda confusing, can you make right click menu work also on the poster down below?

Can you guys add an option to hide the Weather menu on the home screen?
Also, I was confused by the "Show Weather on Home screen" since I thought it referred to the menu, but it refers to the widget.

Argh I submitted accidentally without finishing the post. I wanted to add that to make the option clearer, it could be renamed as "Show Weather Widget on Home Screen"

Thank you very much. This works great!
FYI - this disables the blades where you can pick your views, etc. while in media sections like Videos, Music, etc. This will definitely help in locking specific views and options and not confusing someone not familiar with XBMC when they are navigating.
Also love the Cover Flow!
