I did consider that but thought of how Aeon moves its features around depending on user's choice of menu placement and thought something similar could be implemented.

igotdvds: So this is the secret project you've been working on. You are hereby forgiven for abandoning that other skin. This is amazing!

After your wizard edition i was very exited to see your new skin. And here it is. Looks awesome.

Atm i use live tv with the confluence skin. It would be great if you can add it to your skin, too.

I would assume he means the PVR branch of xbmc not a script or plugin. but be warned if you add support for it you will need to maintain 2 different skins because they are not really cross compatible

This skin works pretty well on the Xbox. I'm one of those few left who can't let go of the trusty old Xbox. I'm sure Paul will optimize it, but right now it works (and looks) great!

Nice job guys!! I will spend some more time with it this weekend for bugs.

Not really seen this before, but is looking very good from the screenshots. I would love to be a tester if you are desperate.

Usually I find with the majority of skins, is that they are good for one area, such as TV shows, and not good for say Movies.

It would be nice to see a skin that has all those magical components, either that or a skin, that is aimed at a specific market, e.g TV show viewers.

Obviously the skins are only as supple as the program itself, so if there is only one way of doing something, you can only do it that way, until something new is added.

So far from what I have seen, you would easily be in the top 5 for high class skins, but as said before, most times, each skin is better for a revelant field, so all my logins, have different skins usually attached.

Keep up the fantastic work, and hopefully a you tube video soon.

I'm not a newbie. I always act this dumb.

Shoot me an email and you can give it a spin.

Also, on a sidenote, to all testers, be sure to check the extra options for each view. Many views have alternate layouts and/or options that are much better than the default view.


P.S. The easter egg has still not been found.
