    Just tried this new skin, excellent work. It even works well on the Rasplex Client.

    Can I suggest you ask the Plex Forum Mods to elevate this to it's own sub forum within the Skins section, shouldn't be hidden away in general as it's one of the few skins that actually work with the latest Plex HT.

    Most of the other Skin have not been updated for some considerable time.

    Regards

    Having used this now for a couple of days I find the contrast on the Home Screen labels Recently Added and On Deck not too good, any way to sharpen this up to make it more readable?

    I have also tried the other colour schemes, but neither seem to work, any advice?

    Change the color - wait for 5 seconds, then exit settings

    Very weird, everything worked fine, but I grabbed the latest version since some things had been changed since I last downloaded it, so i download, overwrite my old version, and suddenly it doesn't work anymore... It only shows half of the text and lost all black backgrounds... Luckily I still had my previous download lying around, so I put it all back the way it was, and now it works again... Just thought I'd mention it, as there might be a little bug in the latest version perhaps?

    All in all, awesome job, and loving loving loving this skin :)

    please always delete the old files first, then unzip the skin and copy to the addons folder

    Looks a bit messy in my opinion.

    Is there any chance that you can modify the 'Carousel' view to add details as in this example http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-LrLapnwZANw/UABGYQDCauI/AAAAAAAAAO0/FdgJYxj4Nsc/s1600/Screen+Shot+2012-07-13+at+12.00.19+PM.png

    This is still the best skin around and I have taken the liberty of posting a mention in the Rasplex Forum.

    Many thanks.

    The option to disable Home Screen Slideshows has disappeared, there doesn't seem to be any way to now turn these off.

    What's new on the Homescreen, I can't spot any difference?

    Regards

    Thank you for the excellent plugin.

    A request to add an option to skip the preplay screen. I never use extras, ratings or anything of that nature and would love to have less clicks to play my media.

    Cheers!

    there is currently no option to do this, but you can delete or rename the file "PlexPreplayVideo.xml" located under "..\skin.plex_black_editionHT\720p\"

    (or press "play" button)

    Love the theme. Really nice edit of the original. 

    There's only one feature I miss. In the original theme there's "Hide plot if unwatched". Can't find it in this theme.

    Nice work, keep it up!

    Cheers.

    this is quickly becoming my go to skin I love how simple and clean it is. one thing I'd like to see is a view mode for movies similar to the 'no spaces' music view

    A lie can get half way across the world before the truth even gets its shoes on.
