well should explain my self a bit more
anyway when playing music or playing anything like videos
you can hear the music sioundtrack ect but you cannot see the video or the currently playing song without goign to the xbmc item and is top of the list.
i do not think this is intuitive and not easy to find if you are not used to the system(my girlfriend)
although she after going through all the skins likes this one the most
she finds it hard to comprehend and i agree with her that the currently playing item is not listed in the top window all the time (when playing)
i understand that this would limit the newest item list but this woudl only occur when playing some thing
i also unless seem to have mislaid current play list as well but that way be eden

if you have alook at the confulence skin they have the play now sat below the latest editions

thanks
martin

Hmm.. Currently playing video or song are shown above xbmc menu. There is also a button "playing: song/video" which takes you to now playing screen.

You are suggesting that this should be solved with a small window that would be always active when something is playing?
