Excellent, looking forward to this myself. Love the weather icon which is exactly how and where I wanted to implement it but didn't for lack of proper icons.
2 row Poster view with larger thumbs is great too, I thought my initial 3 rows were a little crammed almost like a wall view. Also like that you made the info overlay optional as i think it isn't necessarily needed depending on how one navigates. I for example have the remote set to "show information" on select, which is why i tend to prefer full width posters without info.
Couple of notes:
Replacing feed-thumb area on homescreen. My suggestion would be to implement this in a way that it does replace based on the main menu selection, So that on-hover "movies" it would exchange video feed for recently added movies, same with TV etc. Remaining menu items that don't have obvious sub-content can revert back to the feed.
One small thing that I think does not work so well is using the selection rectangle_off (grey) on non-selected thumbs. I temporarily had this myself during development and wasn't convinced by the look. Something you may want to look check as alternative is to replace it with a "diffusemask" in the thumb props. I already have some PNG masks in skin/media/ which are meant to round off the corners of the non-selected thumbs.

You should be able to pretty much copy/paste a lot from DialogVideoInfo.xml.
In fact I had a FullscreenVideoInfo.xml at one point... But then streamlined it and decided to copy/paste it into VideoOSD and just make it a on-hover button instead of having to click it.
Also: Uploaded all source PSD's if it helps adding and editing icons etc.
