Complaining about dependencies, but I have all those listed installed. What version of XBMC is required?

I just knew someone would be making a WebOS TV skin at some point Smile

Seriously though, looks good! I might steal the idea of that Live TV icon Wink

It would have been nice though if you would have taken the "one view" concept of WebOS TV and extended that through the entire skin. I've been thinking of doing that, also inspired by WebOS TV.

I'll be giving this a run later! keep it up Smile

@clackerdacker - sorry should've noted its gotham only

@jeroen - thanks. Not really trying to copy web os, I wasn't even planning on making a skin - just was trying to see if it was possible to do it as a sort of proof of concept and then it just went from there.

The skin looks just great and I really would love to test it. Is there any way to install Gotham and Frodo parallel on the same computer? As I understand for this skin, Gotham is needed but I would like to keep my Frodo installation just iin case I would need to switch back for any reason.

Great work, great estate. The only thing I don't like out of the box from your screenshots is the PVR part, because you don't really get much info or overview in those views yet. Maybe you can tweak things a tiny bit

Skin looks good. But what about Arctic? Are you still working on it, too? Or is this your new baby? Smile

Nice work Jurialmunkey, i'll be watching this project closely :-)

A quick point on design if I may: avoid using fully justified text on textboxes - leave them flush left. Full justify never really works without control over hyphenation.

It's one of those design aesthetic vs. usability conundrums. As much as my opinion means anything, I'd err on the side of usability.

Looks very good!
I'm curious how skin.widgets are implemented (like a popup on the first screen or something?).

Will have to try this when RaspBMC goes Gotham Smile!

Again JM a great skin! Arctic is my daily drive for quite sometime, but this could be a nice alternative Wink

Looks really good. So nice to see more skinners focusing on the basics of usability instead of stuffing the skins up with distracting artwork and fancy effects...

Though, if I could mentioned one immediate suggestion... Use the whole real estate of the screen in the EPG, don't waste so much space on the left and right side. And if it is possible to make it easy to switch between channel groups

And customizable buttons on the home screen would be perfect

Looks gorgeous and simple. Love the large typographics and the color scheme. Would like to help out translating the skin. Smile
