I really like this skin but i would like to see more views in movies/music/TV like wall view.
I also like the cd and dvd case art that many skin uses.
The "now playing" menu for music is a bit dull if you dont use visualization, you could add a feature to use fan art
or the cover art to be visual instead of visualization.
Keep up the good work!!

I would like to have the option to configure the "back" behavior so it goes back to the root menu instead of the parent folder. I know I can edit the xml but I would like an option in the setup menu.

Well in a desperate bid to fix my issue from the first page I totally ditched my xbmc folder and started from scratch, downloaded ellipsis and re scraped all my data.

Turned on cerebus animation and bam, Power F**king Rangers, back with a vengeance.

Gents I need help here. I like cerebus

please add more view for the music library.

The current view (Vinyl) are hard to navigate for those with huge collection, the same goes with the song navigation layout.

The rest is awesome for me doesn't need any change.

+1 ......also I notice that the musical note icon doesn't appear in the center
circle but it does for movies etc.

I know that's part of the design-philosophy, but a turbo-mode for entering/leaving/scrolling
those several menus (animation speedup) could be checked for testing-purposes.
Of course, only if it would be possible w/o loosing the main spirit of this great skin.

One thing that I'd really love is to intigrate Last.fm within the music section, for example when you are in music and viewing by artists a "similar artists" are grabbed from last.fm with a link that will play that channel.

I'd also like to rate tracks that are in my collection which then updates my last.fm account.

I realise this is beyound the realms of skin design but if there was some way to better intigrate the Last.fm plugin within the main music section then that would be great.

EDIT: This is a fantastic skin and I think you've pretty much got bang on everything right for movies, now if you could focus on making the skin stand out from all the other skins and make it a clear winner for music lovers then I think you'll be onto something.

In the meantime I reluctantly had to go back to Aeon as I just couldn't use your skin for my large music collection.

I love your SKIN,

Although my personal 2 preferred settings are missing:

1. Viewtype: Wallstream View (In both File View and Library View)
http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=66062

2. Mouse Support (I use the File Manager on a daily base, and I really like it when a mouse pointer is enabled)

Thanks In Advance

I LOVE this skin, but of course would love a few more things in it...

1. As many have surely said, more view options for library mode for everything.
2. Custom home menu buttons (already on the to-do I believe, but just wanted to give my vote.)
3. While a video is playing, pulling up info shows when the video will end. It would be nice if it also showed what the current time is and/or remaining time.
4. Weather on the home screen?
5. I also feel that the current music library mode is very hard to navigate.

Agree - the OSD should have focus on most used features like stopping/rewinding/ejecting

We also feel this way. The amendments and improvements to Ellipsis will be extensive. We're taking all feedback on-board, so thanks for this.

Hi Blackbolt,

As mentioned before, I would like to see a Wallstream View in File View mode with cases disabled.
