So any suggestions are more then welcome but i hope you like it over all
Absolutely love the home menu. Only question, are you planning on having a brief description beneath the title of the latest added film? Otherwise I am loving absolutely everything about this skin!

First i must say that i love this design and i cant wait until you are finished with it.
I really like the idea and style of the homemenu but feel that all the things in the center of the screen is stealing all the attention of the menu options(even thou its purdy ^^). And the buttons are a little bit small also.
(im mostly afraid that the non techies in my family wont find the menu and ask me for help)
Keep up the good work. And by the look of it, anything you do will look awesome.

You might be right there, but I'm thinking of doing 2 styles of the welo skin one called "extreme" whit all the detail like you can see now and one called "clean" which basically is whit out all the small details

Definitely the popcorn and posters that look out of place. The skin looks very classy with the muted colours and fine fonts. They look a bit cheesy in comparison. Add in slightly large text for the menu and thats probably the best home screen ive seen in a long time, very original.

I actually like the popcorn, etc. Gives some dimension and personality to the skin imho

1. Love the overall look of the design...

I do too, though maybe if popcorn and the drink with that box on the left had a little more 3d-ish look, right now they seem flat.

well then I have just update my screen slightly. And I have added a new one called "clean". I decided to go whit 2 styles one extreme whit a bit more details and one clean where I'm keeping it simple. So I hope you like it I feel quite good about them now

Keep it going Welo. Skin is looking so crisp and uncomplicated and yet with a sophisicated look and feel to it.
Apart from Xperience and Shade, nothing really touches the market in my view, apart from Welo.
Xperience is a show off to your mates kind of skin, Shade is a nice practical skin, which currently I am loving.
Welo is more what you might see using a TV service. Even though screenshots can be deceptive, but can't wait for the realise of this.
Hopefully this might be the one true skin, that makes everything uniform, and follows the same idea all the way throughout.
Using more than one skin for different uses can sometimes be a pain, but can also be refreshing as well.

Clean is better but instead of sticking the posters on the wall I think keeping with the theme of http://u2430989.fsdata.se/xbmc/welo.jpg would look better and more common
