I was thinking about getting into skinning, and decided to make a mock up of what I would like to see on my box. I have no experience of skinning, so have no idea when this would be possible..

...would it be something you guys would use? Please feel free to post your feelings or comments on it:

...despite it being late, I wanted to crack down on a 'music' page...really get to grips with the workings of the theme...this is what you might see if you had just chosen an album...

Hey Fella,

I've responded to your PM, and would LOVE to see this up and running on XBMC. I have some thoughts about animations, etc that I dont think have been done...but I'm always up for a challenge.

I WANT Pandora up on XBMC, and it would be great to see it a reality!

Thanks Jezz, and for a noob starting out it's all good info. Could you explain about it not working on the TV? In what way mate?

How could I address that?

I think theres a bit too much info crammed in for a standard telly set. Imagine viewing that on a 15" standard 4:3. Apart from that it looks ace biggrin.gif

Well it doesn't really have to be a small 15" set, just a CRT. I have a 36" and it is hard to read certain text. It's the fact that text that looks beautiful on a computer screen is nearly impossible to read on a CRT Tv set with a 4:3 Aspect. THe text just comes out all joined together and stuff so all the text would have to be scaled way bigger and by doing that it ruins the beautiful layout you made. I would love to see this skin made with all your visions intact, but if you do things like the music page you will have to post a warning for all CRT users saying that the skin is designed for LCD and plasma's. Good luck with the skin. Looking forward to seeing the progress.

Thanks guys for the input, especially as I am new to skinning. The home page is being coded as we speak, and I will speak to the XBMC team to review how the rest of the skin looks, going forward.

I really do hope to have the vision remain intact, but offer it out to everyone in the scene...

I'll keep you posted.
