I have been running pm3HD forever now and use my xbox to play re-encoded 720p movies and it does great. I have recently been diving into newer skins that support fanart. I tried Mediastream and mediastream redux but found that they take up too much memory and wont play my hd movies. Does anyone know of the best skin that will display fanart and still allow me to play my 720p videos?

Thanks for the links. i looked at those threads before posting. the big difference is playing the 720p videos. I can get all the skins to work very well except when i attempt to play hd videos. I actually just tried transparency! and it seems to work so far. Thanks for the help.

Thats because fanart is generally the problem and takes up most of the memory needed
