For my personal use, I have done some minor modifications that I require, I thought of commenting them here. Maybe they are of use to you or give you ideas you might have in Box.
Fullscreen player OSD navigation with up/down buttons. In the player OSD all navigation is done with left-right. For me, getting to Subs button is a very common action (more that pausing, because I use a remote with pause button) so most times I bring the OSD I was pressing menu-left-left-left-OK. So I changed the xml to give the up-down buttons some navigation. From the central buttons (pause, FF, etc.) pressing up gets to the left buttons (subs, audio, etc.). This way I get there in 3 button-press. I would suggest to include more smart navigation this way.
Sorry But No: pressing Up or Down to navigate left or right is simply nit ok
One nice option that you might add (for people that have remotes with play control buttons) will be an option to change the default OSD button. Instead of pause (for the reasons I gave on 1) for many people accessing other menus is more common. Some skin go as far as allowing which buttons to show/hide. But I don't think Box need to go that far. A simple box that puts the focus from the pause to other place (subs? audio?) would be nice.
Sorry But No, thats just to much customization for me

Playlists sorting. On some playlists for me it's more convenient sorting things by last watched, instead of the default alphabetical (I wrote about this in the bugs thread, I think). To accomplish that I changed InProgressEpisodes and InProgressTVShows.
For episodes its easier to have it alphabetically sorted, in case you have more than one episode of the same tv show that is currently in progress.
Box can make any custom playlist into a Home Widget, so if you wish for a different behaviour you dont really need to modify the default playlists, you can simply create your custom playlist and select that playlist to be your home widget, That way when the skin updates, you wont loose your changes.
Quote:Also, in Recentmovies (analog to what other skins do) I added a rule to filter already watched movies (<rule field="playcount" operator="is"><value>0</value>).
If you are interested in any of this changes, just let me know. Do you use some kind of public repository?
Good Idea. I have add it
