Very Good.
I really like this theme because its User-Interface looks like a commercial skin.
The Transparancy while playing a movie, has rescued me twice because there are a lot of people around me, who dont like to hide the movie picture while navigating in the menu.

I really appreciate the navigating scheme, even a 6-years old, could handle it. Smile

Glad to hear you're enjoying the skin, especially glad about hearing a 6 year old could figure it out. We've actually had positive testing by a 2 year old girl who figured out how to get to her kids shows through the skin!

I think a list view will be integrated in the near future.

However, I would like to see a large banner view for TVshows Laugh

So far Equinox has converted the skin to run in the new format for XBMC, with add-ons, etc. We need to finish the add-ons page. We're still working on the view types (well Equinox is waiting on me to finish the needed textures). I've made many little graphical tweaks after using it properly for so long I've seen what it needs here and there.

We obviously don't have a release ready yet, but we are working away, granted not full time as this is just a hobby and we have lives and full-time jobs, so don't expect updates like when MC360 came out and I was unemployed at the time, giving me all the time in the world.

But we haven't given up, we're just struggling for free time at the moment.
