Great work on the skin, I tried to enter an issue on the Google project page but it would not let me submit it.

When in poster slide at the TV show level, if I page up or down it goes past the last visible poster so when paging through the show it skips 3 or 4 posters. I thought you might want to know that.

Also I was wondering if you wanted to take a page from mcborzu's book and have the title interchangeable with the logo when you enable support for logos in settings.

Just a couple of quick thoughts, keep up the great work, this skin is very attractive and simple to navigate.

First of all: I love the skin.

I'm using it on the new Apple TV and its really beautiful and quick.
But there is one Problem: The homescreen looks really ugly because of xbmc's transparency problems on the aTV.
You can see it on the Photo. (I'm to dumb to make a screenshot.)

Is there any way to hide the bigger category name to make it look perfekt?
I could do it myself, i only need to know what lines to edit - and how.

I believe the control for this starts in line 206 in Home.xml. So comment out lines 206-236.

Working on a home screen with the menu in the middle. Hopefully finished somewhere tomorrow.

Just posted a few issues over at
http://code.google.com/p/xbmc-simplicity-beta/issues/list

Could you please check if I did it correct. I am not used to these bug trackers ;-)

Thank you.

Just tried this out and it looks great. Only issue I'm having is that the time zone for the tv guide seems to be an hour off for my time zone (MST/UTC -7). It's set correctly in Windows, and I can't find any discrete setting for the skin/XBMC. Am I missing something?

How are the banners/posers/etc suppose to be formatted for this skin?

I have both images downloaded for the TV Shows and and removed the source and readded the source but it still doesnt seem like it picks up the diffrent files.

IE: I have a banner.jpg and a poster.jpg but it seems like the skin only looks at the folder.jpg file when displaying the banners on the "Banner List" view for tv shows. Then when you go to the "Episode List" view the images look squished if its actually showing the "Banner" since the banner is far wider than the poster sizes. If I use the "Posters instead of Banners" then I cant use the "Banner List" view and I think it tries to use the poster image in the banner slot and expands it out so it looks weird. This seems to happen in every theme. Is their something Im missing? I use media center master to scrape the files. I tried using UMM last night and it created a bunch of tbn/nfo files so I deleted/readded and had the same results.

Hey guys,

Been fooling around a bit again with the home screen. Just for fun :-)

Added option for flags instead of plot on this view.
