I'm a huge fan of zooming animations, and these are pretty spot on for just a couple days work. What do you think of the fire so far?

I love it and, dare I say it, I think it does a lot of things better than XBMC which I'm hoping I'll be able transfer across to this skin. And with help from Unfledged I've already ticked a couple of those boxes. Big Grin

It's spelt with a capital 'U', but I'll let you off as long as you take this absolutely amazing concept to a completed skin Smile

RE: fTV - Hitcher - 2014-10-30

Sorry, I forget who's upper and who's lowercase. Wink

RE: fTV - removed151214 - 2014-10-30

As a British citizen (and I apologise to all those international people who won't get this in any way, shape or form) I'm Upper in every sense of the word Tongue

Edit - it also gives me a reason, as if any were needed, to link to one of the best sketches ever performed.

Wow Big Grin Now that I'm also a fresh Fire TV user I now cant wait for this skin Smile
I would love to use this skin with XBMC Smile

Will this skin support PlexBMC? That would be really great, cause the design of the skin is made for the Plex Library use case Big Grin

Thanks for you great work Big Grin
