I prefer to use favorites menu for secondary options but can you include plugins in the home menu (dinks BBC iplayer plugin is our most used function)? And do you know if you can shuffle the order of items in the power menu?
Your welcome, XBMC and the skin has always been a way to exercise the grey matter. It has certainly been that, have learnt all sorts of interesting things (some are even useful).
Now I know I have said that fanart was not very spouse friendly, and then found that was not the case after all. But, I tend to think that placing secondary functions in the favorities menu would be counter intuitive, will have to think about this one.
As to the idea of placing plugins in the home menu, my understanding of plugins suggests that this is not really possible, but I will have a poke around and see what I come up with. Again I think the home menu is becoming a bit overused (by my reckoning there are now about 11 menu items on this menu, which is a bit much).
As to shuffling the order of the power menu, it would be a lot of work for a very small gain. I'm really not sure its worth the work. Besides I have a lot of other things that I would like to see in the skin first, so if it happens it wont be for a while.
I have a bit more work to do on the skin before a Xmas release, but some of the hi-lites include : Fanart in library wrap view, clean-up of a number of textures (looking really good in 16x9 now), removing a few of the views (should make things quicker and lighter on the memory) plus a couple of small bug fixes. After this release, there will be a bit of a break as I am off camping with the family after Xmas, so will probably not get back to the programming until the end of January.
