I run XBMC Dharma 10.1 on Windows7/homepremium. I also run it on linux from time to time.
I love this skin. After testing a number of other skins, this one takes the price for simplicity, cleanliness and WAF.
For the longest time I was looking for a skin simple and intuitive and this is it. Of course it had to be taken from an actual consumer product (XBOX360), and their research dollars were well spent with this interface.
I would make the colored backgrounds more transparent so that when there is media playing in the background, it shows thru a bit better.
I would either remove the weather blade and place the icons on top of the screen, or combine it with the settings blade.
And, I would add the 'Now Playing' playlist management controls directly on the media blade (NOT to be confused with the smart playlists). Also, there are no menu options to enqueue media items.
On the movies section, I could not get to a "show information" screen for movies, from which you can select and watch the associated trailer, or select between plot and cast display.
Please take this as a suggestion for improvements list and in no way it is criticism.

Are there any plans to add a visual indication of shows that have been watched? Or am I missing something in the settings that does this already? I really love the skin but this is a big annoyance.

There is one in over the iconviews and the big icon on the list as a tick but not in the actual list it self (like Confluence) It is on my to do list but my to do list and real life is rather huge and some skins get preference over others and since I try to keep 5 going at the same time .....

Okay, my girlfriend is getting really annoyed at them not being there so I'll just switch back to confluence and check back periodically. Thanks for the reply, keep up the good work.

I see you're working on #03 of this great skin.
I'm testing it now.
Found 2 things...
Appearance / Fonts is blank
Skin settings has an empty field with a checkbox
Since I now have the media "png" files, is there a way to remove the darkened area (between the "blades") so fanart will show through better?
Thanks for your continued work on this skin!

Appearance / Fonts is blank not blank for me
And for the last 2 maybe this is whats missing
Also its been so long since I've touched this skin I'm not really sure what version is in the repo but you can always get the latest source code at my git

Weather Plus? - thewarm - 2011-10-03 17:01
Any chance the Weather Plus script/addon could be implemented please? Or a TV Guide?
Thanks again for a nice, light-weight (on system resources) skin!
