I'm surprised how much I like this, its probably how clean your design work it is. I am only sceptical on a personal level because I think its to very hard to maintain consistency with fanart, and it appears your design relies on fanart. Although, on different levels so does mediastream, confluence, aeon and other skins.

I like the layout, but I'm not a fan of the blue/gold colour scheme. To me, htpc skins should be dark, as you usually watch movies/tv in dim lighting conditions/evening, and a bright theme is hard on the eyes.
Just my opinion though, looks nice

I'd hit it.

I was actually in the process of changing the color scheme to a black/gold theme to make the text easier to read which will be reflected shortly when I upload the new images.

I actually was going to comment that I like the color theme, because every other skin out there has been turning toward a very dark appearance and honestly I'd like some variety. But yeah, looks great, love the simplicity of the look.

Using four basic colours for pretty much the whole skin like this will allow for easy changes to a whole host of colour schemes.

That's true. A simple® skin like this should be pretty easy to theme, by my understanding.
