Is anyone using this skin running it on an acer revo or the like?
Reason I ask is because of lately I have been having some performance issues with the skin. Example, movie library (<150movies) taking 2-4 seconds to load, tv shows (<15tvshows) taking 3-5 seconds to load, tv show logos sometimes taking longer.
I am serving the files via smb: but I am not having these issues with confluence.
It seems as if these issues have gotten to this point overtime. I remember the skin being fast when I first installed and my libraries havent grown much since.

I have read about .dds but cant seem to get it working. If you are using dds can you provide your xml so I can compare with mine to be sure I have it correct.
Anyway, I figured this was skin related seeing how Im not having these issues with other skins. Any ideas to increase performance?

Harware - acer revo 3610,2gb ram, win7 home prem, win7 tweaks (dif compression off, aero off, ect....)
