Have you guys tried Cirrus Extended? http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=102066
It has a low listesque option and the homepage favorites.
It's my favorite skin by far.
On another note, eldorado, is there a changelog for all the alpha changes? Im testing it out, but I'm having trouble keeping track of has changed.
I got a crash last night when I enabled fanart, I'll look through/upload the log tonight.
Everything looks great btw, good job!

I'll explain with pictures. On the Confluence Skin with Auto-View turned on for TV Shows
And after you change the settings to Tick - System / Skin / General / Use "Posters" instead of "Banners" for TV Shows
Neither are right, I have logged a bug in the Confluence Skin section. For Confluence, they prefer Banners for TV Shows. Is this different in other skins? I haven't got the chance to try others yet.
Here's the way it looks in Favourites, the best of all because of the setView('movies', 'tvshows-view') bug

I had so many people syaing, that it was not working where as the original one was for them on linux, that I tried to code it in to the best I could without testing. I don't know if it is working or not. Definitely it won't work on windows.
You are referring to D&W?
Under Win7 both Env and File based work for me, though I believe spoyser reported it hasn't worked for him under WinXP..
So far I haven't gotten either to work on ATV2

Change log, no not really.. typically I have been posting here any changes I have made and of course i try to write detailed information for my commits to git
Would it be helpful to include them in the change log?

If you're already putting it in the GIT commits just copy/paste it into the change log. No real extra work.

Yes I am talking about D&W. The D&W part works on env based, but you cannot communicate with the downloading thread. Are you saying the download info and cancel download options work for you on env based on Win7?
I don't have an ATV2. But file based should work. Maybe I can have a look at the log and tell you what might not be working. But it still is kinda tricky. I would say pull the whole D&W out. Get an official version out with full metadata support, and maybe the watched functionality.
Leave tricky things like D&W, stacked parts, stacked parts with video seeking, and stacked parts with D&W till later. Anyways I would say some of these will be really really tricky and fragile at best. Don't bother with these now. People can live without stacked parts, and watching one part marking the watched flag as fine. Just pointless to strive for complete perfection and seamless operation, atleast right now.

BTW after marking watched are you refreshing the Container? But when you start watching as streaming and are done watching the container has sources. In D&W mode it would have D&W options in the container. No point refreshing these. But if you backout XBMC shows you folder listing from cache, doesn't actually call your addon code to generate the container. How would you mark the watched flag on that? I tried telling XBMC to not cache the folder listing, but it does not work for some reason. Anyways it would slow down things unnecessarily.

The bug is a feature.. Ha Ha Ha...

Once this goes official, will the DBs be part of the addon or separate downloads? Do the DBs store personal data like watched status?
Just wondering if you need to change code, and add columns to DB how it would work?
