On the TV episode selection screen will you have the option to display the plot summary? I just find it useful when I have a long list of episodes to work out which one is which.

Things like this make me wish skins in XBMC were more modular. Where you could take what you like from all different skins and have them flow together into one unified skin. Have categories for skins like Home, Viewtypes (possibly break these down for movies, music, etc.).

Nice mock-up though, don't know about the gradients, have to pull out my PSP to see, but really nice concept. Careful though, Sony might bring down the hammer on you, though it's doubtful since you really aren't profiting from it in any way for them to care.

*HINT* *HINT* Skinning Engine v3?

It won't be a direct copy of the ps3 gui... just an idea inspired by the ps3 gui!!

Well, the mockups are nearly complete. I'll update them soon.

I've done full mockups as it give me a great base to work from. I'll then code. Bearing in mind this my first full skin (done personal modding before), i expect 2020! Only joking... i have no idea really, hopefully not to long as i want to use it just as much you!! Nod Wink

Cheers
