I know there are a few topics here regarding the LiveTV\PVR\EPG views but I didn't want to hijack someone elses topic, so I'll create my own.
Since I am using one specific PVR Client (IPTV-simple) that only works properly on Gotham, I needed a nice skin that works, and that has nice LiveTV support.
And we all know, that Aeon MQ5 is a great looking skin!
Some of you also know that Aeon Nox for Frodo had a really nice mod, made by "anti2k" (Dreambox and other STB users will agree :-D). Found here: https://github.com/anti2k/Aeon-Nox
But last contribution there was more than 6 months ago, and there is no support for Gotham.
So I decided to try and port the mod to Aeon MQ5 (Please bare in mind that I am no skinner, but I do know programming).
There was a lot of work since I had to port it from 1080i to 720p. But I have come a long way, and am happy to say that it looks really good.
It is till work in progress, I guess, some small stuff I need to play with. You can see some screens of it running in MQ5.
At first I did try to make the mod work on AeonNox for Gotham, did come a long way. But then realised that other parts of the skin did not work properly in Gotham. So I'll wait untill there is a more stable version for Gotham before I do more work there.
I will upload it for testing soon. I will not use github, but I will pack all the files in a .zip so that you can see what files are modified\added.
I have only changed the Channels list while in fullscreen and added the Infobar. The rest is original MQ5.
Any suggestions are welcome.
I am not trying to take credit for someone elses work, all cred goes to the "anti2k" fella for creating such a great mod for AeonNox.

1) Backup your skin files
2) Move the CONTENT of the .zip file to the skin directory: C:\Users\[USER]\AppData\Roaming\XBMC\addons\skin.aeonmq5\
3) IMPORTANT! The mod contains changes to "includes.xml" and "Font.xml" files!
You can either choose to modify these files manually OR just replace all files.
(If you are upgrading from 0.1 to 0.2, then you do not need these 2 files).
In order to update those 2 files manually open the files from this mod, and copy the mod-specific lines to your corresponding skin-files:
includes.xml - line 16
Font.xml - From line 200 to the end
The rest can be replaced
Infobar - channel switching
Infobar - Menu OSD
