If you're looking for something close to the aesthetics of Blur, I highly recommend reFocus by Jereon. It is, in my opinion, one of the best skins available for XBMC. The creator goes to great length to make sure every aspect is as polished as it can be and just look phenomenal on the TV.

I've tried it (as well as almost every other skin Rofl), but I'm not a fan of the main menu and there are several little things that aren't quite as polished as Blur IMO.

Until it's released, where can I get the green/purple/blue backgrounds that are used in BLUR? Or similar backgrounds?

I've spent the last couple of days getting my Rotten Tomatoes scraper working and in my repository.

The upshot of that work is, whilst I haven't spent much time on this port in the last week, I now have a working repository setup where will eventually be able to provide nice and easy WIP releases (no time frames as yet).

Before being sidetracked by my scraper, I had made a breakthrough with the skin regarding navigation - some minor missing function syntax which didn't seem to bother Plex but did XBMC. I'm full-steam ahead now on this skin.
