Thank you, jurialmunkey for making an awesome skin!

I made a few mods to suit my needs and wanted to share if folks are interested.

I believe in simplicity (see the pause screen for example). Another example: Movie durations or ratings don't mean anything to me. So I replaced it with genre to make it more meaningful.

A picture is worth a thousand words. Below is a modified home, movie list, genre view, TV shows, and pause screen. Red text in the screen shot call attention to my changes.

I also added comments in the XML themselves so you can see what I changed.

Simply replace XML's in the 1080i folder.

I tried it in an incognito window in Chrome as well as Internet Explorer, it worked in both. Do you have imgur blocked?

Is this a complete mod, or add ons here and there? How does one implement these?

I can upload the files and give instructions on which files to replace. I just need a place to upload. Where to?

I signed up for GitHub, but I have no idea how to upload folders or png's for the genre icons.

Currently, just the XML files for the 1080i folders are there. Simply replace and reload skin.
