Great skin!! Thnx!!!
couple of things I encounterd so far:
TV Themes is not working for me.

Haven't check why.
But love the skin!

Quick update to fix banner icons. I accidently still had it set on banner.jpg, there isn't a setting to use banner.jpg yet. Is only suppose to use the local cached banner...Fix on Download and git.
Things that come to mind to be done:
1. Watched overlays on grid(s)
2. Music Playlist

I want to lower the volume on them by 40-50% to make them a little softer just a time thing....

Great Skin. I really like this as it uses sod all system resources on my asrock ion, though not over keen on the green element but i will get used it i guess.
I have noticed a few bugs/errors will post them later once i have used it for a while.

This looks great. I only have a few suggestions.
When I pull up Pandora the "Loading Script" text appears in the upper right overlapping other on screen elements and looks a bit odd. Also the navigating the home screen is a bit jarring. The window with the fanart just moves over left or right depending on your direction. Maybe some type of animation would smooth this out.
Otherwise this is an excellent skin.

Good to hear that banner.jpg support isn't going anywhere. I like having the option of switching between poster/banner/landscape views without having to redo all the poster/folder.jpg's. Really wish more skins took that approach.
On topic, TVTunes seems to work after a fresh start of XBMC for one show, then it kind of just stops working. The favorites window seems incomplete, so I'm assuming that's on the Todo list.
On the Home screen navigation. I've added two Favorites to the main menu. Which now pushed some items off screen to the right like Weather and Settings. However, there doesn't seem to be any visible clue that there is more options that you can navigate to. Like a little right arrow or something unintrusive that would give the family a hint that there is still more options that are just hidden from view.
Right now the last choice on the home screen is Addons. I know that hitting the right arrow will reveal Weather and anything else on the right, the less technically inclined might not.
