The vista media center has a great look and feel about it. I will be interested to see how this turns out. It would be great if there was also a script for vista media center but as far as i know there was never one made for xp media center so it is very unlikely. Would sure be great though. All the best with this skin!

could you just do an update to the mce 2005 v6 skin that's out now? like a theme for that skin. if that's ok with whoever made it first.

Vista's Media Center works differently than XP's Media Center.

no, i'm talking about the mce skin for xbmc. just create a vista theme. don't make a brand new skin. i think a theme would be easier.

It would be easier, but it wouldn't really look a whole lot like Vista's Media Center.
They're very different.

based on the screenshots i did some buttons..
it's not that perfect, but i'm working on it. next would be a similiar background, not a perfect copy (perhaps with moving rays biggrin.gif ). it's too bad, i can't do the XML stuff ;(
