Dont know if i`m doing it wrong but my the aspect ratio looks bad on my plasma, i`m guessing its because it has a 1024x768 16:9 resolution.

Is it possible to have a resolution option like 1024x768 widescreen? most of the 42" plasmas out there are that resolution som i`m probably not the only one who noticed this...pm3.hd looks great at 1024x768 but i like mediastream better but not as it now.

Thanks for a great skin

Try deleting the "PAL"-folder inside the Mediastream-folder.

Any way to get a icon pack for the genre section, so for each genre there's a nice picture instead of the medastream folder icon

Just a small request

also would there be a way to make shoutcast a option from the music menu.

Cause my wife won't stop complaing out she has to switch back and forth to files and libary mode to see shoutcast, and then back to libary to see her music.

argh.

Would like to see an option to use the DVD cover overlay like the one used in the Horizonz skin. Also, maybe a transparent gradient on the Media Preview view instead of the solid black, so that fanart can be fully seen.

Umm.. Shoutcast should show up in library mode. If it doesn't, switch to File mode, remove the shoutcast source and readd it. You'll then see it in Library mode.

Yep, this is something we've toyed with in the past but neverf really followed up on. Would be good to try it properly at some point, have added it to the list.

I'll look into the shoutcast thing again, I never saw it.

I had to add shoutcast manually to the sources listed...

+1 for some sort of transparency (solid or gradient or something else) in the main menu in order to take full advantage of fanart.
