If you hit the white button, it also takes away the cover art and album info.....therefor, my dislike still exists.

Well youre still lazy as hell because if it really bothers you all you need to do is remove the background image (its a .png file if youre too lazy to find out) or replace it with a blank (not sure if just deleting it will work). Then voila! Album artwork with no background.

I've never used The Orbs. Could somebody post a few quick screenshots of each skin in a few different menu's?

Thanx,

If you want screen shots of "the Orbs" do a search on "the orbs" there are two large threads that are deidicated to the skin, "the orbs: reloaded" being the most recent.

Me too. That's why I use them in PMIII. As well as Kotix's gifs rather than the static images. I prefer the art of PMIII and the creativity of the Orbs. I use, what I think, is the best of both. I decided to make XBMC my main dash when I saw these two skins.

Is there a way to just have the boxart appear in only the My Programs menu while it stays the same in the other PM3 menus? How did you change it anyways, I was lookin through a few files last nite...

I really like the Orbs skin. I think that PMIII is too dark for my taste. I really like the background texture of the Orbs and the way it is incorporated into a lot of the scripts.

I've added the Playlist Random script as an Autoexec so whenever I start up the Xbox it streams my music from my computer randomly. It's very cool. Of course, you can do that with either script.

Go Orbs!!!

First download Kotix's media pack. You can get it here Kotix rocks Add the folder-xb-focus and no-focus to your media folder (add the gifs too and point home.xml to them).

Then overwrite/add this your programs.xml

<control>

<suffix>-</suffix>
<onleft>2</onleft>
<onright>2</onright>

It looks good in 16:9, you may have to tweak it for 4:3

well,
the thread isn't about it,
but,
serenity skin?
for xbmc?
where to find?

i checked allxboxskins.com and the forum here but i didn't find it.
if you bring a third one to discuss, there should be some pictures to see.

pmIII and theOrbs are both great stuff!!!
i use them both. whenever i am bored of one, i switch.
greetings,
spoone
