Yeah, sorry about that. It's House Of The Dead night tonight but I'll see if I can find a second to finish it.

Hey a skin that uses hdflagging information, nice! (even if it is only using the filename for now) For the record, you can't have DTS and Dolby Digital in the new system because they are both audio codecs and only the "best" is exported to the skin (the first with the highest channel count). May want to revise the layout to be resolution | acodec | channels.

Is the new system active yet?

why? both should be displayed, i understand for some people having one audio is not a issue.
but what if you have movies/tv shows with multiple languages.
i have quite a few movies that have English DTS and for instance Japanesse, Polish, German etc.. Dolby.

djh_ Wrote:Well, it only bypasses the cache for the info pages which use one thumbnail at a time. The cache is actually very important as without it the coverflows etc. would just die. I'm working on a desktop which uses samba shares over wireless, so I've plenty of experience with that. The big thumbnails load instantly unless the hard drive has to spin up, which is fair enough. On the HTPC they're actually stored on, there's no discernable load time at all.
Hey Duncan, I'm curious if you're aware/planning to use the improvements JMarshall is doing with the new texture load methods (post #2)? Sounds like this may help us with the slow boxes like AppleTV's a lot.
Looking forward to your skin.

No but I provide about 80% of the movie poster artwork.
Quote:If so why not make it so the artwork can be scraped? It will get alot more recognition here and alot more contributors.
Like I mentioned above, if I can get a programmer - I'm game. I just don't have the time, and thus the inclination to put one together quickly. If I could get programming assistance, I'd be all over it.

If he's unifying the image and largeimage controls then I doubt I'll need to do anything. The performance is pretty much perfect on HTPC at present so I don't feel a need to optimise. If there are ATV-specific issues and enough people wanting them resolved, I'll look at it after release.
