    Hi,

    Just loaded the latest update, great improvements, my favourite skin now, not sure how old the previous version I had was but  the current version is fantastic.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    there is a new version online, please update to latest Plex Server (0.9.11.1.678-c48ffd2), or you will have problems with Star Rating!

    Is there a way to remove the large number (unwatched episodes) that shows in the TV Show view, or at least make them smaller? The font size now looks kind of out of place.

    Issue with the skin on Rasplex... the rasplex settings app (although rarely used) has some fonts that don't appear on the left side:

    Hi DaedEyeFlint,

    thanks for this beautiful skin! It made me come back to PHT instead of XBMC/KODI and PleXBMC combination. ;)  

    A few suggestions / requests:

    • Would it be possible to get rid of the "MENU" label on home? I don't see the point why this would be needed when i'm on the home screen and navigate through the sections.
       
    • Could you implement an option to hide fanart as per view? For example in viewtype Posters / Bigger Posters, there's not much space left to see anything of the fanart. It would also look a little bit cleaner if there's just a blank background in poster mode.
       
    • In Apple Trailers channel, there are only square posters shown which are cut of at top and bottom. Is it possible to change that to normal Posters and also increase the amount of available viewmodes?

    Thanks!

    Sorry, you can't - no way to load third party skins on Roku, they have their own API's.

    Thanks for the hard work!

    I agree with this critique. It is hard to read the unwatched episodes and it looks out of place. However, I like that information being there. I would suggest you do what the default Plex skin does: put a number in a solid color circle.

    Request:

    I am new to Plex so if this isn't possible, my apologies. Just set me straight. ;) 

    I am coming from XBMC. In Plex I am finding that in the full library, you have to drill down several screens deeper than XBMC to get to the individual shows. I realize you can hit "play" at any point going down, but it still seems a bit wasteful.

    In XBMC there is an option to "Flatten TV Show Seasons." Can you add this option to your skin?

    I'm currently working on this,

    there will be 3 unwatched episodes overlays to choose in the next version...

    Third one looks good!

    Any chance the next release includes my request in post 84?

    Keep up the good work, much appreciated.

    i don't think that this can be done by skinning.

    Thanks, Tobias was going to look at this for the default Plex Skin for Plex HT, if it happens there maybe you can look at his code.

    Looking forward to next release.

    This is a great looking skin.

    How difficult would it be to try and port this over to XBMC?

    Installed this on oE PHT on a NUC 2820. Works lovely.

    Pleeeeeease get rid of "MENU" from top of homescreen. No need for it!

    Option 3 of your unwatched episodes overlay will be great.

    Other than that, spot on!

    There will be an option for this in new version.

    New Release takes a bit longer, I'm currently working on Background Dim / hide Fanart per View
