    It looks fantastic man, keep doing it. I love your skin, I wanted to give Plex a new look and you just nailed it. By the way, the low list looks nice and I'm using it now.

    But I want to give you some feedback, if you don't mind, and I promise that I'll do it because I think the skin would be more awesome. First, I think that the sidebar in the Home Menu (where you go to Movies, Music, etc) could be bigger, because some titles, like "Documentaries", it can't be seen all inmediatly. It's something stupid maybe but I think it could be nicer. The second advice is when you are just going to see something, like a movie, the screen when you press play doesn't have any details. You could add a smooth color on the sidebar, maybe with transparency, and again I believe it would be nicer.

    The last one, when you're seeing something and press O to see at which hour the video will finish, that font has a grey color, and sometimes it's difficult to see the hour, because of the video. If you change the grey for white I think there are more possibilites to read it.

    And that's it. Thank you very much for your work and keep doing it :D. Greetings from Chile.

    I still love your low list!! I just have one little thing which would be great if you could add it. :) Inside a season of a TV show it would be great if the list says which episode number it is (so far i have the open the preplay screen to see the episode number).

    Hi,

    in the new Version i've posted today, there is an option in skinsetting to activate a bigger HomeMenu.

    To show the Movie infos when you play a Movie, press F6 (default button for infos).

    Finishtime in seekbar (button "o") is also brighter in the new version.

    One word....Wow!!! This is turning out to be an excellent skin. I am loving it. Keep up the good work!!

    I have a chance to play around it thoroughly and found some minor bugs. I know this can be easily fixed in the next revision.

    1. Home - Photo first thumbnail image is now showing (picture below)

    Pic2.jpg

    2. Home - Video thumbnails are stretched. Can you do it like the original Plex skin?

    3. The font you are currently using does not display other foreign languages. I have change them back to default Plexfont and it works.

    4. Preplay for Movie synopsis (or description) text does not auto-scroll

    One additional request. Not sure whether this is too much to ask. When you have "Shared Content" (as in pic below), is it possible to list out the content on the Home Menu List rather than displaying them in folders?

    hi,

    the problem with home Screen Photos is solved in the latest version.

    Homescreen video posters have the right dimension now.

    Plot autoscroll in preplay screen is also fixed.

    Fantastic work!! Thks for all the fixes. The Homescreen for videos thumbnails still somewhat more stretched than the original plex skin. I have taken some screenshots for your comparison.

    And, one more thing. Most of the view types in Channels may need further tweaks.

    Keep up the good work!!

    Wow, thanks for work in our suggestions, the skin is wonderful. I really love how it is right now, and I'm here to say thanks and to contribute again with more suggestions. Now, with all your work, I only have one more to give.

    In the screen below, the stuff like sidebar (numer 1), the poster (2) and chap. image look like they're fliying in the screen, because don't have a background. In the original Plex skin, at least the sidebar has a smooth background with transparency and it look nice, but I'm not so sure about the poster and the image.

    So, if you think that you can add it, maybe it look better (at least in the sidebar, you can play with the others 2). Thats it, I believe that the rest of the skin is just perfect, and I'm loving it. Thank you very much :)

    Well, I believe the original Plex skin crops the image before displaying it on the box. Here's another screenshot which very obviously shows you the stretched image on your skin vs the original skin. (Your skin on the left)

    Keep up the good work!!!

    ok, I have found the problem, this only happens when you use home videos...

    I'll fix it

    Hi,

    I found a little bug. With the newest Plex Media Server when I go to recently viewed shows most of the time there is no Wallpaper in the back (using low list). When I use the official Plex skin there is a wallpaper.

    Awesome skin!

    Is it somehow possible to remove Sleep and Shut Down options from the menu?
