Nice one. If Keegan is not on an ATV, I will definitely like to help out. If he is....what is two weeks? LOL.

Okay, I need some opinions here.
This is what I currently have in place. There's still infolabels missing, but the general idea is title/year/description, but no episode thumbnail.
This is the concept I'm working on. It's obviously very rough, and the description will be justified like in the live picture, but this is the best display I've come up with that keeps the episode thumbnail in there:
So, the question is...live, or memorex? Who's terribly attached to the idea of having the episode thumbnail in the big info view?

Allright, testers. Updated version on FTP. Movies section should be in pristine condition...TV section still needs work...
Edit: Crap, it's still uploading. Give it 10 minutes or so...

The awesome expansion by digitalhigh, of my original Movie Genre Posters are now available through Fiinix Design as well. Also I updated my first post to reflect on this. Hope you (digitalhigh) don't mind that I used a screenshot from Serenity for the Preview..

As for thumbnails as long as you can see the thumbs while scrolling through the list of all the episodes I'm happy. Do I need to see the episode thumbnail on every screen not really.
I normally just like to see the plot of an episode while scrolling through them all to know if I've seen it already or not. So I guess it really depends on where the plot is in relation to the episode image while your looking through them and if you remove the plot from the scrolling through the episodes to a separate window then I'd guess and say yeah you'd need the episode image in both places.

Sorry I have been very out of the loop lately. Life has hit one of those spots where craziness has ensued. I have been either out of town on business or working all the time on other business. I have a full time job and also a project myself and a friend are working on. Both together have consumed all of my extra time as of late. Hopefully I am back and have time to dedicate to this project again.
Digital--about my platform.
I do not use ATV, but I do run XBMC on my Macbook. For those curious, Serenity runs very VERY well on XBMC for mac. Unfortunately not so much on PLEX. The reason is because PLEX has evolved quite a bit in a different direction since it split from XBMC.
I have not tested on the xbox, but I do have the ability.
Ultimately I can't believe that less than 4 months ago, I posted screenshots that I randomly put together one day because I thought it would be a sweet skin. Now, we have something that is nearly complete and that a lot of people are excited about. Many many thanks to DigitalHigh. This would not exist without you. You have put more time and energy into this thing than I have and it's turned out to be a very bad@$$ skin. I'm updating right now from the FTP. Can't wait to see how the movie section has turned out.
Thanks again to everyone for vocalizing your anticipation for this project. I hope we can live up to your expectations. Everyone should find out very soon.

Thanks for that.
If you wanna help a brutha out, you could try your hand at an episode info concept along the lines of what I posted above. I'm having a helluva time coming up with something that looks good, has all the info, and still works with the feel of the skin. I'd like to have the ep picture, showname, season/episode number, watched icon, and network information.
I've already come up with a rather elegant way of making the episode/shownumber always come out in the format S00E00...even if the ep# is only one digit.
I also think that I'm *almost* on the verge of having a viable way to represent the network logo without any extra work on the part of the end-user.
All this combined makes for one heck of a nice TV section. Oh...I also got this working:
So...IDK. Maybe the episode view isn't so bad like this?

Is there still going to be support to show the episode image? Maybe in the bottom right corner? Or is that what you see when you click view info after the episode is selected?
