With the latest version I have two issues (or questions)

1) The home screen has a black background. Is there a way to change this? I looked under the skin settings and changed a couple of settings there but those only affect the background within the video, music, etc libraries.

2) I have duplicated video items listed under Video.

Which version of xbmc or you using ?
Most likely it's too old, for this skin to work you'll need one of the development builds.

This might be an xbmc bug. Again first try if a more recent version of xbmc fixes this.
You could also try to delete your video database and recreate it.

If there's any more help you need, just let me know.

Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search the forum before posting.

I had the same exact problem (running XBMC on Ubuntu) and I just updated the application from the repositories, and the problem had disappeared. Like the last poster commented, update your XBMC install to the latest SVN version available.
