You know theres alot a ways to do that, personally I create a custom genre called "720" so it real easy to add home menus or in other skins I just go to genres>720. So my genre field is <genre>720 / Action / Adventure</genre>
Yea still debating on wheather to use Alaska's frames or make my own. Personally I love those frames, I ask Hitcher he said its cool to use them. Odds are I'll use them. Heres what they look like using the newer Alaska frames:

How do you point directly to a specific genre?
The only way i can do that is by adding a genre to favorites and get the direction from there (eg. <onclick>ActivateWindow(VideoLibrary,videodb://1/1/9/)</onclick>) but the last digit is variable.

Yea thats how I get the path, set the genre "720" as a favorite then open up favorites.xml and get the path from there...
Since my home menu is just simple text I'd love to figure out the way Aeon does that custom menu thing by opening up Favorites through the skin but thats more on my 'wishlist' rather than 'to do' list

Do you mean the menu that pop up when you press "s"?

What are the dimensions on those series logos?
I've made a lot of cleararts/landscape posters and most have the text as separate layers where I could easily contribute. ^_^

My guidelines are:
Try to fill as much as possible or if a show logo like "LOST" or "24" which are taller than they are wide then I center the image.
And since most skins are dark except Alaska, it's probably better to use the lighter version of a logo than say a black logo.
Mine came from clearARTS too, I save my .PSD's so that how I grab the first 25...I haven't made any more recently than whats on the 1st page.

I was meaning that cool, easy way anyone can add home menu items in Aeon going through skin settings rather than messing with .xml's.

Most of what I've done so far is anime but I'll post cleartitles here as I make them.
