Rainbow  [MOD] TV {Banner} List View (ALPHA)
Post: #1
Hi Yall

1st off MediaStream is #1!!!
but i've always been annoyed with the TV wide list view
because its missing all the pretty banners

I know Team Razorfish has shifted focusing to a new project
so i hacked this with my limited (copy/paste) skills Cool
Introducing ... TV Wide Banner View

( Go here for large "before" & "after" screenshots )

BEFORE:

AFTER:

if you want to give it a whirl
replace /skin/MediaStream/720p/ViewsVideo.xml with this file
Always practice safe skinning: make a back-up 1st :rolleyesSmile

i call this ALPHA... because there are a few things i'd like fixed before we are "complete"
  • fix top of list ...
    only bottom half of 1st banner is visible
  • fix bottom of list
    what is ontop of the 4th banner ? (top half)

other things i'd like to see (but don't know how to)
  • change display for all items
    put watched/unwatched beside banner (for every show)
  • change display of selected item (highlight whole thing)
  • remove left "info view" & make a 2 column list of banners
any feedback and suggestions would be welcome
any help & direction would be appreciated

cheers

almost done another new view -- this time replacing TV LIST
im hacking & slashing at ViewsCommon.xml now

i just can't figure out how to hide the thumb it normally loads on the left side.

i now have SERIOUS RESPECT for Team RazorFish
and all the skiners out there who are building this stuff from scratch
