reFocus Big - Plex HT port release
I started working on this port because I wanted to learn skinning, and because I wanted a decent skin to run on my Plex HT box. The skin is fully functional, although not everything was extensively tested. In order to get some things to work, I shamelessy ripped some of se.bastian and Sandman4sure's excellent code and artwork, and I hope they won't mind this release, else I'll take it down. In order for the skin to run smoothly, please disable all extrafanart, logo, clear art, until I finishing cleaning up the menus. I'm also not sure I cleaned up all the visible comditions for the OSDs, so please ensure you enable those in the settings.
A lot of the code in there is hacked together, and maybe one day I will do a full rewrite. On the home screen, do left to access Search, and right to access On Deck/Recently Added (Need to put in the indicator for that). I think this should work with Martin's excellent PlexPVR, but I don' have the hardware to test. He did test an earlier version, and said the Live TV stuff worked well enough. Download link is below:
PS. This is a 1:1 port of the XBMC version, hence the size of the download, this includes 17 themes.
Started making some changes to the skin, both to fix issues reported in this thread and incorporate new functionality. All changes are posted to the github repo. Much of it still work in progress, but I expect frequent updates in the coming days.
- Home menu now has a submenu accessed by pressing Left
- Sub Menu has Settings, Quit, and Plex Online
- As a result, Search is moved to the Main Home menu
- There is now an indicator showing the accessed PMS. This label is placed on the top left corner (Next to the navigation indicator), and can be turned on/off in Settings.
Various Other Changes:
- No more filter menu when entering media sections
- Preliminary implementation of Preplay. Need to work on presentation, and make all buttons active. Only Play button works ATM. Also trying to implement a toggle for replay that would allow to turn it off.
- Cleaned up item count on the various views
- Changed the font of the media titles to match Home Menu.
- Fix support for Play Queue and Shared Content in Home screen.
- Finish Preplay screen. Might need help for graphic design
- Fix Preplay for TV episodes.
- Implement Filters and Fix current reFocus left side menu in views
- OSD in in desperate need of a refresh. Need help from someone to design new graphics.
- Fix MPAA ratings
- Fix TV Show titles not displayed in some views
- Fix List views (Overlay not covering entire list item, resulting in poor transparency effect)
- Incorporate new views (Big and Small Icon view)
- Look at bringing back extra frank and logo support
