ZStream Current Release 0.4
04/29/2011

[Image: 5667863256_9783a5471f.jpg]



Ok so recently i started to use my atv2 as my main setup for the living room (why i don't know, just curious i guess) it had been collecting dust since the day i brought it.

I chose mediastream as my skin of choice but wanted to change a few things to my liking/atv remote friendly this was just a personal mod for me and the family but have decided to release what i have got so far basically for now i have been working on the home screen.

Thanks to JezzX and team Razorfish for this awesome skin.

This skin requires the latest xbmc nightly build for recently added to work on windows

and for atv2 users its best used with the unofficial semi-nightly xbmc builds tutorial can be found here.

What i have done so far. (what you see is what you get)

*New Aeon like view
*New recently added tvshows
*New recently added movies
*New slimmer home blade
*New slimmer submenu
*Atv2 mode (when selected the skin will be atv2 optimized still a wip)
*Ellipsis analog clock added
*New look favorites menu
*Access media controls for now playing by pressing left twice in home menu(for atv2 remote)
*Home visualization
*fixed anything that was playing up in home menu on atv2


Coming next release!

*Working on new look recently added now
*One new view
*More atv2 optimization


Like i said nothing really new here atm its early days with this so don't expect any major changes just now but hopefully it will take shape very soon.

Skin download link below!

it eventually when enabled it will switch to lite textures for faster preformance also will disable any cpu hungry options/load less textures but the user in settings will be able to activate each disabled option back on again basically it will change to a lite verson of the skin at the moment it works but as i deit the skin i will add more and more to it the end result will be a fast skin.

The new view is more informative, may be it should be included in the next release. Another thing, you can add provision for adding colored logos (credit to Simzer0, repo maintained by Kisuan)by providing a link to the respective repo/ link in the 1st post. Pls don't include studios in textures.xbt if you make it one.
