i've been trying to swap AEON MQ3 for quite some time but,
i keep going back to it....
but i so want to change it becuz,
quite frankly, it looks good, but, it has tons of bugs.
and altho the author is doing a good job,
it seems when he releases a new version, it fixes stuff
but it also breaks other stuff so in the end,
i kinda got tired of it...
and i've been trying to get support for it on several times without success...

closest one was NIGHT skin. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUGy5VHZqYg
i might try it again, maybe its been updated and stuff...

The awesomeness of personal headphones in an HTPC set up is so often missed :D

I swear, I watch more stuff on the smaller display in my room simply because I don't want people to hear my embarrassing anime shows.

Nice and clean, I like it. Also, another member of the K400 club!

You can make easy links to the XBMC wiki using double brackets around common XBMC words: [[debug log]] = debug log, [[Video library]] = Video library, [[SMB]] = SMB , [[userdata]] = userdata, etc

Ha, brother and sister have both watched Anime so it's not so weird. At school in my frat house is was awkward as hell. Only ever watched one series, haha.

Its already there. Actually you can delete the one I made there and move this one. I like this one better. Pics look better.

Thanks Kibje

As far as Aeon MQ3 i just tried it again. It was my favorite. But I switched back for a couple of reasons so I'm done. I like the new standard really. It just works and looks clean

newstuart - As far as gaming not really. IMO HTPC dont make good gamers for a number of reasons. I wanted to keep it quiet and its silent. My daughter has played Minecraft as little though.
