I installed v0.8.5-beta1 r745 on my 10" 1045x600 tablet. The new lay-out is great!

However on my device album thumbs are not "maximized" like they are in your screenshot. They seem to have the same size as in previous releases.

I like the bigger font size in the album view, but IMHO it's a bit too big on my device.

Redownload your album covers and they should be the correct size.

Oh yeah sorry forgot to mention that, you'll also need to clean up sdcard/xbmc/* (aka clear cache)

Just curious, the remote is not available in the Android Market for Wifi only Xoom. Is there a compatibility problem and if so is an earlier version recommended?

Yeah I'm still polishing up the now playing screen, most of it is already in SVN though. Will hopefully find the time soon to build a new release and put it out on the Market.

I can only share what I have used it for. As an XBMC Remote it's great, and with Freezy's R745 it REALLY looks amazing! Angry Birds looks awesome and runs smoothly on it, and yes I can read books on it! If I get a chance I'll drop a movie on it and let you know. IMHO for under 250 usd a rooted NC is hard to beat.

Hey guys.

I have a Nook Color, rooted with CM7. Have to say this is a great (and cheap) Android tablet.

Anyway, I installed the XBMC remote V .0.8.5-beta+ Revision 745 and my tv show banners are still sized awkwardly. They are too large for the screen. It only shows the left hand side of the banner and the quality is poor. I also do not have the horizontal now playing.

Prior to installing the version mentioned above, I did have the Market version. I found the version listed in this thread and thought I would give it a go.
  • I uninstalled the market version
  • Installed the tablet version...got bad tv show thumbs
  • cleared thumbs and reloaded them...no change
  • cleared program settings in the Android >Manage Applications menu
  • reloaded xbmc remote app
  • cleared thumb cache to make sure it was cleared out
  • loaded tv shows again so the thumbs would load...still poor thumbs.

Any suggestions?

Also, should this new tablet version display tv show banners in landscape? I use my Nook almost exclusively in portrait mode (when at all possible) and landscape tv shows would be great, especially since music and movies support this.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
