20 Nov 2019 - TVDB Scraper v3.2.0 is now available which reinstates scraping. TVDB are still in the process of fixing a number of bugs so there may still be further breakages. See this post. 2901570 (post)

Focus (an XBMC Media Center skin) discussion thread

It is like the topbar simply goes out of border when the time is too wide .. like 4 digits ..

I did some tests on my 20" widescreen TFT monitor and on my 720p TV, and I could only replicate this problem when using 4:3 resolutions. Then indeed the last digit gets cut off. That is because I haven't paid any specific attention to 4:3 resolutions yet. I have to organise the font references to solve this, something I will look into soon. Every 16:9 resolution does not have the time cut off for me though, neither on my monitor or on my TV, so if you're using a 16:9 resolution I really have no clue. The skin is scaled from a 720*576 resolution, the time is aligned on the right at 660 pixels width and is 315 wide Confused Maybe you can post a screenshot or something ?

Really like the good support for my old PAL TV. Everything is readable =) (Some graphical bugs related to the resolutuion though)

Just an opinion... Estetically the whole skin is a bit too "blue", if you know what I mean... =) It's a bit too bright blue, which kinda annoys the eye. I personally think the coloring should be toned down a bit.

But thank for a nice skin in progress!

Thanks. What kind of stability problems do you get? Which xbmc version are you using? I doubt things are going to get fixed automatically if I don't know what to fix and if it's at all skin-related. I don't have enough knowledge of the inner workings of xbmc, but imo a skin should never be able to make a system unstable. And if it does I really want to know when or under which circumstances this happens so I can adress it. There was a stability problem when trying to change fonts but that has been taken care of.
Please note that Focus needs a fairly recent build to work properly. In order to only display viewtypes specifically made for certain types of content (like not showing a wide icon view when listing movies or albums), Focus uses visibility conditions on the lists. This is a relatively new skinning feature in XBMC.

The biggest blue influence comes from the default wallpaper, which you can change in the skin settings. Besides that the only blue elements are some labels and buttons. I think those will change a bit in the future, but not by very much. But I will keep your comment on this in mind. Also, the dialog windows are all blue. The thing is, I found those by far the hardest to define a look for. I have changed them very often before the first release and stuck with this in the end because I liked it the most that way. Everything else I tried either broke usability or consistency too much. But I am thinking about changing them again, probably some form of dark grey or black. More like the bottom bar in the screenshots I posted of the HD version, but much less or no transparency to keep it readible. That style then would also be extended to the OSD and fanart.
