No worries - Nightlies are the latest bleeding edge versions of XBMC - they have the most up to date and new features in them but that also means they may have new bugs as well - You just need to keep that in mind if you choose to use them.

Sorry for the noddy question, but where should I be going to pick up the latest binary for back row? (or better yet a list of regular versions with changelogs?
Great work on the skin by the way - only discovered xbmc recently, but after trying out all the skins, Im really happy with this.
While I'm here, in case its of interest to anyone, my feedback...
Personally I'm not a huge fan of the 5-4-3-2-1 countdown, so am looking out for the option to turn that off (though I'm warming to it). Purely FYI, I made me go away and reconsider other skins again, but the rest of back row is so good I came back anyway. (I did read I could disable this by changing the background to asinge imagine, but I like the colour and feel. Perhaps a higher res default background images might be nice. I love the red feel, but something of the quality of the Media Stream Redux red seats image would really add to the finish of back row.
I also think the watched icon could be smarter. Its really useful (once i actually watched something and realised that it was possible to see which items I hadn't watched :-) ) but its not very pretty/clear.
Also what about automatically jumping to the first unwatched program when looking at a season of a tv program?
Anyway, all very very minor things. Fantastic skin that I would happily use even if it never had another update. THANKS!

heh - it's not a noddy question
You can get the latest version either from the XBMC SVN or the entire skin is hosted at the alt download link (both in the sig below).
If you download the version from the alt download link and select multiple home wallpapers in skin settings there are some hi res cinema themed backgrounds to replace the countdown image - you could try that see what you think.
Yeah I take your's and chareos' point about the watched icon and have replaced it with a simple tick - it needed sprucing up.
Thanks for the feedback - it's always good to hear people enjoying using it.

As I've told djdafreund, if you'd like us to host your skin just let me know. Don't know about others, 4shared and the like are enough to make me want to jump off a cliff.
- Sharpe - 2010-01-22 19:27
That would be great - yeah if you wouldn't mind sending me the details /uploading info and so on - I'd be very happy to take you up on that.

I waited around to make sure it wasn't just a late upload thing but when I tried the latest version it didn't have the DVD bookmark support (at least not when playing .iso ) I appreciate the good work and I'm not in any hurry. Just pointing it out since you said it was already done.

Oh that's weird - I've just checked and it should be there. The conditional visibility options should make it appear one way or the other - I've just checked with an actual DVD and it shows up - I will dig out an iso and try it but it should work. If you try it again make sure you replace the previous version of the skin ie delete the old version to be sure it's copied over correctly.

Thanks. I picked up the latest version. Looks like the tick is missing. No sign of any watched marker. Not a complaint, just pointing it out.
- Sharpe - 2010-01-24 00:09
Yep sorry it's not enabled by default - you can enable it in skin settings
- Drbell - 2010-01-24 17:35
D'oh. Thanks for the reply.
