I have troubles getting it to install from the zip file so here's how to put it on AppleTv:

un zip it and then ssh it to :

/private/var/stash/Applications/XBMC.frappliance/XBMCData/XBMCHome/addons

anybody else just copy the unzipped files to your addon dir.

I'll fix this. promise.

@dallasnights
thanks!!

Yep, my bad I left it on.... You can turn it off by looking in the skin directory for the file "addon.xml" and change this line

debugging="true"

with

debugging="false"

If you have trouble let me know.

@fodster: (actually @everyone)
Any feedback is more than welcome. I'm rewriting a few things that (in order to finish quicker) I stole here & there.
If You could also let me know what OS You are testing on it would be awesome datas for me.

Thanks!!!

Running on good old windows vista here.
When watching video and pressing info hard to read probably needs some sort of background to make it stand out. Same on fanart view text difficult to read blends into the fanart.

Very nice job so far.

- Recently added movie and album covers could use maybe a border around them, the edges are really sharp and stick out.
- TV show banner view not compatible with current nightlies, XBMC now scrapes both banners and posters and you don't need to specify in the skin settings which one you would like to use.
- Artist big list view could show artist fanart in the background
- Recently added episodes, the dark gray box behind the title could maybe use a little more transparecy, it sticks out little bit too much for my taste
- Main menu navigation. When you move from an item to another the icon lights up immediately but the blue outline follows with a delay, This feels a bit weird, and when used with a Harmony remote it's even weirder because of the additional lag that the Harmony causes.
- Video "Files" view, an easier option to get there. And when browsing in Files mode, with both unwatched and watched videos shown in "icons" view there's no indication if a video is watched or unwatched. A "watched" overlay on top of the video screenshot would be nice.

All in all, good job. Tested on Mountain Lion.

@fodster - yes - still working on that view..

@dallasnights - You mean like 10 addons 10 scripts 10 fave? I think right now i did 5 - 5 - 5 . That can be done, if you can write xml just edit the customsettings and the shelflinks to point to more script. Or wait I'll include ASAP.

@toiva - Thanks for the fbacks! I didn't put no borders 'cause I was going for the APPLE look.. I might add a little antialiasing, that's in the work.
Frodo will come.. Unfortunately for me I decide to adventure in skinning too late for eden too early for frodo.. Do You mean the banner_view or the banner option in settings?
fanart in Back.... mmmm.. Maybe as an option.. I do like white on black lists. Or i'll just split the screen...
Gray box for watchlist- Recently added episodes needs touching up... I agree.
The lag in home menu is due to Panel focusing VS animating the outline.... I tryed easy fixes but I would have to renounce to panel modular icons.... and i need that in the future to add custom icona (yes I said FUTURE.. Wink )
Should I get rid of the Outline?? Since It's easy to know where U at even with no outline.... (I have Harmony too... hate the lag!!!)
Do You think I should send from menu to FILES insteas of VIDEOS? I assumed getting to root would be better in case you need to go to playlist... but on second thought You're right.. straight to file it is.
actually they should show a little banner that says NEW on unwatched items... can you doublecheck please?


thanks again!
