I apologize for my hideous image editing skills... I'm more of a photographer. I chose one of the cover views and one of the list views to give my thoughts. The coloring and sizes should probably be changed (especially on the non-selected items). The same could then easily be transfered to the other movie and tv show views.
My thoughts on the metadata on views...
The only view showing "Total/Unwatched" is Big Posters. Scroll is the only one showing the plot. The others are just season X and a poster with, IMO, plenty of room.
These have more metadata than I thought. Although for MPAA: I'd probably prefer the little ratings icons on all views, they're easier to glance at and when you have guests/kids it's one of the more important items.
The list views could probably have the little icons below the time as well. The 720p/format/aspect/etc. Actually there are several views missing these. Scroll View as well...
The fanart view looks nice, but having a timeout then popup the rest of the information (plot/ratings/format/etc./etc.) is always a nice touch. A couple of skins do that, and it really makes the fanart view nice to use.
I really dig "Poster View 2" but it's missing the MPAA rating and the metadata icons as well.
The show current playing info on the track views thing I already mentioned is wanted... Even a simple highlight of the playing track is better than nothing, but a little box with play info would be even better.
Album year shown on all album views. I like the fanart view so much that I probably still won't use the other ones, but the year is very handy for albums...
Overall the skin is my favorite. Those few things (it looks like a lot, but it's not... ) The flat text style (as seen on Windows Mobile 7) is really growing on me and this skin does it very well.
Keep up the good work... I've already converted 4 friends to this skin, one of em loves your panel view for movies.

Just like the stars on one of the other views. I think they're a different colour for selected and non-selected items.
I like your idea though. It is a little annoying having to look through each episode to see if you watched it rather than holding the button down and running quickly down to the unwatched episode.

Yeah i'm looking for a 'wide' list view, so there's more text on screen... and no icon...

Hey there! Some requests from vanMiez and me:
#1 Could you add a Music Videos button to the homescreen?
#2 More infos in music video list.
#3 More infos in music video playback.
#4 Artist info on Music thumbnail view (in top center). You are handling the top space much better in movie welo and poster view.
#5 Looks like Music thumbnail view is a file mode view, we'd like to see "music" in the top left corner.
#6 For albums with multiple disks, infos on the disk number in Songs view would be nice. (Request Post #77)
#7 In songs view, only the highlighted songs need to scroll when they are too long, not all of them.
#8 Also, all infos longer than their respective field should scroll.
#9 Issues Post #47, Music Playback / Next overlays current track
#10 Make long movie titles scrolling in all views.
#11 We have trailers for some movies. Some info on this in welo view would be cool.
#12 We don't like star ratings, please give us the option to have numeric ratings as well.
#13 For TV-Shows, instead of having two lines for total number of episodes and watched, integrate to one: watched: xxx of yyy or xxx / yyy
#14 We hate gradients. Please stop.
#15 RSS-Feeds are not working.
- Also, good work. Keep it up. Thanks.
- We know this is quite a bit of requests, nevertheless, if anyone can, its you.
- Also, I have it on good authority that vanMiez will have your kids if and when all these requests are handled.

I'll take a look at these.
The part about the kids was hilarious, but my wife might get upset.
Always nice to see that people are using the skin and want to help make it better.

I would like to request that you add elapsed time, total time and finish time to the info screen (i) when a video is playing. I like to be able to hit the info (i) button when a video is playing to quickly see where I am in the movie and what time it is going to finish. Currently, the only way I can figure out how to do this is to pause the video to find out and then start again.

Actually, it would be nice if the same info when you hit pause during video playback would also show when you hit info (i). It shows up on the bottom of the screen and the info shows up on top.

I second that. Well.. obviously minus the duplicate info you'll have when combining the two.

Addition to #9:
I hope you see what we're talking about here..
Long Titles/Artists overlay the stars and everything else.
Can you do something about that?

Otherwise we're pretty sure we will have to kill the bunny.
You don't want us to kill the bunny do you?
