I have already submitted alot of high resolution posters/box art to themoviedb.org, I was originally submitting them at a height of 1000p, but from now on I will do them at 1080p, i guess that makes more sense. This new info view looks very nice.

thank you for all your efforts. i am not sure we can do that full poster view but alot of the other views should work with downsized fanart and movie covers etc. hopefully. I am on the fence on what my next move will be beyond xbox. htpc still cost a lot more and alot more tweaking to get right. I hope one day there will be like a very good reference hardware we can run xbmc on, but now it is just too many variables and so little time.
I like appletv but it is under powered. i love what there doing with plex on the mac but i cannot afford a mac just for my tv.
xbox is easiest with great out of box options, not to mention cheapest and I still love a lot of the great games I have for it, emulators etc...

I agree with you on that one it does a great job for the money. but the hd nuts would say the pictures crap, but these people want to remember we only had b/w for long enough t's only a matter of time before HD gets replaced with something bigger and better and more expensive.

well, i bought a 42 inch edtv plasma for this reason. it looks amazing with 720 and 1080 hdtv channels and regular 700mb xvid upscales very nicely at 480p with xbox. the problem is if something happens to this tv, i will not be able to replace it. it is hard to find a 720p plasma these days, i don't want to debate lcd vs. plasma, I prefer plasma but 1080p is the minimum spec now. in a year, u will be hardpressed to find any tv that is not 1080p.
I may pick up a 720p plasma and hope for the best, but it would be wise to plan around 1080p for the future...
there are days i miss my 27inch sony trinitron lol....

I think it's true about moaners, an xbox back in the day might have cost you £300 or so. An htpc which can do 1080 would probly cost you around the same?
C'mon.. it's not like you're getting a raw deal with all the HD downloads you can get.

ur right and ur wrong lol. I didn't get into xbmx untill a used xbox was around $90.00, no they are 40-50 dollars. and with the hd adapter they provide a lot for the money. I want a pc that is smaller and more quiet and boots directly into xbmc just like the xbox. I will eventually build or buy something to that effect but u cannot do it for under 100 dollars like xbox.

Each to their own...
I'm pretty sure there are currently more XBMC-XBOX users than XBMC-HTPC users.
It all depends on which group of people you want to cut out.

Looks good (to bad we lost IMDB), but I have fix that issue for myself.
I hope DJH takes me into consideration for testing, shurgs.
Anyways good job, can't wait

But please can we stop the discussion about a Xbox version of that skin. Every time the same story! The Xbox is "dead" and that is a fact. Sooner or later the HTPC User are in the majority (and to me this situation is already there).
IMHO it is a sacrilege to change Aeon Stark into a version for a system which is not a competitive HD platform.
