Unfortunately I don't think it is possible to get information about the movie from the fanart which is displayed.

What would be possible is hiding the menu after some amount of time.
Pressing a key would show it again.


EDIT: it is possible to transform the home screen in a picture slideshow, but I'm not sure if I should do that.
The fact that the slideshow screensaver doesn't work is a Plex issue which will probably get fixed soon.
Then the skin slideshow would be of no use anymore...

 

As far as I can tell, the Plex Slideshow still is not fixed.  Mine just dims.  Making the menu disappear would be a great alternative.  ReFocus is the only skin that I like and care to use.

I've been using this skin for PMC from the start but with PHT beta I had quite a few problems and was forced to use the default MediaStream skin. I just love the look of this skin and would very much like to back to using it.

 

PHT 1.x was recently released, has anyone experience how this skin works with it?

I tried it and PHT force closed consistently with it on my mac. Other skins seem to work but not this one. I reverted back to PMC until PHT works out some bugs.

I just installed this skin on PHT using preen, and works pretty well except channels don't work at all unfortunately.

You guys are in the wrong thread! The version in this one is way crashy / incomplete with PHT but someone has actually ported reFocus properly to PHT and is actively working on it, see https://forums.plexa...t-port-release/

 

And the git repo: https://github.com/j...focusbig-master

Great, but that's reFocus Big, which looks quite different. I personally don't find the huge text very appealing and would rather keep using this version.

When I have the time again I will take a look at fixing it for PlexHT.

It won't be soon, because I just moved and that is taking all my time at the moment.

 

If anybody has a fix I'll be glad to add it to the git

Hi!

 

I just installed Rasplex on my Raspberry Pi and was trying very hard to optimize Plex to be controlled smoothly. With this skin it's like the Raspberry is overclocked. The menus are so fast so thank you sandman4sure for making this skin. Thank you!

 

One thing that I miss though (since I have my movies and shows in list-view) is the unwatched/inprogress icon when using the list-view. I know it shows on the fanart/poster but when I want to continue to watch a show, I have to go through all the episodes and look at the fanart/poster image to see if there's a green/orange + or not.

 

I picture something like this: 

Breaking Bad        O

Season 01            O

  - Episode 01

  - Episode 02

  - Episode 03       O

  - Episode 04       O

 

Maybe this could be optional to toogle off or on in the settings if some people don't want that.

Does anyone else get a black screen when trying to open uo the channel menu?

I keep having to switch back to the plex default skin to watch my OUTLAW BIKERS(history.ca channel)

Have been getting the blank channel page as well.... 

Works with default skin.

Just updated to latest skin from Git for Plex HT...

let me know if there is any way I can assist with development of this AMAZING skin. Have loved it since I found it!

Refocus has been broken for me since the Play Queue update. 

 

The home page loads fine, but as soon as I roll over Movies or TV Shows, it automatically enters the list and gets stuck there. 

 

Unfortunately I can't use it until it's fixed. Hopefully it'll get sorted because I love this skin - It does away with the pesky pre-play screen, and there's always a clock in the corner!

Night skin has been updated (v1.7) and does get rid of that stupid pre-screen as well as having the clock too.

I would pay money for a working version of this skin... when working, it's easily the best media interface I've ever used. The design is as good as the best elements of interfaces like iOS and Android, but it still does such a good job of maintaining the boldness and simplicity that is required for it to work well on a big screen TV.

I would be willing to pay, too! It's my favorite skin and it would be so cool, if anyone could bring the skin to the current status. Jeroen is working again on the original skin for xbmc, have a look here: http://imgur.com/a/DABnB#0

 

Can anyone port the current version of his skin to plex?

I just submitted a little fix for this. Hopefully it will work again.

Can you guys tell me what else is broken in the HT version of the skin?

And please let me know if it is supposed to work (does it work in the default skin)

For instance, it looks like de Info Dialog for a movie doesn't work anymore when pressing 'i'

It this replaced by the new pre-play screen?
