I don't use either of them, so I don't know. Right now I use transparency with arial unicode.

I'm not a font expert so my thoughts were to be at the same font support as the XBMC default skins...

Fair enough. I shall investigate further.

I love the speed and feel of the skin. Major kudos.
One question: why do some shows have "next aired" and other just the episode count? Would it not make sense for all shows to display the episode count and cycle between that and the next aired episode after x seconds?
For shows that are already complete, you can have something like: show's run ended on (date).

Needed some type of fallback if show has ended or doesn't have next aired info yet. I went with watched/unwatched could easily change to "genre" or "This show premiered in 2000 on ABC" or something...
Favorites as main menu - woutervanwijk - 2010-12-12 01:07
I like your skins! Especially the option to easily access the favorites.
Maybe a crazy idea, but I personally would really like to edit the home-screen items as if it were favorites. I would like to be able to add a tv-channel which I watch often from a plugin as one of the items my homescreen. Simple as that. And add a favorite directory on my system to the homescreen. Maybe someone else would like to add the TED-plugin. Or a music-folder. Whatever. This is sadly not possible now in XBMC. But in a workaround, a skin could maybe use the favorites as items for the home-menu? Would be very nice.

I'm confused both "Night" and "The Carmichael" have the option to add 5 favorites and 5 playlists to home accessible through Settings->Skin->Custom Home.

Home theater support - Enable via Settings->Skin->General
4 Favorites on Home Addons section:

This is an extremely proffessional and modern looking skin, I will definatly be using it. Plus I love the tv show.
