One more question, is it possible to install both skins (Hitchers fTV and your fTV Mod) at the same time in Kodi?
I think this would be great for testing the skins...

Finally done.

Dynamic selection of the library view type based on the previously active widget row style:




This means that the common view type will be overwritten:
- Movies / Sets / TV Shows / Artists will be opened in Wide view if the widget has Wide as well.
- Movies / Sets / TV Shows will be opened in Poster view if the widget has Poster configured.

Note:
- not working for other content types!
- not working for Square/Square Info view

Some amazing work here!!! Love the fTV skin & how you bring it to the next level... Question? - would it be possible to add a banner to the home screen above menu like the Amazon?. A banner would be useful to display upcoming trailer... Thanks for all your hard work.

Not really. To much to change and no integrated Kodi common info/artwork provider available for this without creating or using an custom add-on.

To be honest,
I'm not sure if this a real screensaver on fTV. I only purchased one fTV stick as a gift for my parents, because Kodi was too complicated for them and never used it by myself.
I found this diashow on a fTV demonstration on YouTube -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKfktJnmAhw

Edit:
However - if just a diashow or screensaver - I like it Smile

Looks even better with 4:3 fanarts:




Great for my Adalight setup.

Found it now; it's the Mosaic slideshow. Damn there's actually something I missed. Wink

EDIT: Yeah the shorter fanart works better. We should get someone to make this a proper screensaver.

EDIT2: Here's some proper screen grabs for you to work from.

Yes, a real screensaver would be great, but since I suddently fixed that loosing focus issue a few minutes ago, it works very well. Even with Kodi's internal default "Dim".

Thanks for the screens, now I have to increase the gaps and think about what's the best way to display that row mixing Wink

Edit:
Ok, will be done until tomorrow Tongue Easier as I thought.
