Ok, i understand and i'll just wait.  


In the meantime, do you have any plan for adding other views to the new plex skin? Like a banner view for tvshows and a list or big poster view for movies; that would be great!


There are always new exciting things cooking, but at the same time we wish to keep the official skin as clutter-free as possible, so i doubt it'll ever get as many different views as most third-party ones have. But yeah, it's not complete just yet  :)

It should. Try it out  :)  The thing is that before it's updated it'll continue to have the secondary filters screen and no filters in Library views, nor Preplay. But it *should* work.

Sweet, I was about to ask about the secondary screen in retroplex, great to hear you will be working on putting it into the menu. Really like what you did with it in the plex theme.


Should we still pull from the next beta branch or will you be merging everything into master now that PHT is official?

I am always left wondering why Plex skin posts don't show a few screenshots. Do I really have to install it just to see if I like it? After all, skins are entirely about how it looks.  :blink:

The method used to launch the iTunes channel from the main menu no longer works in Plex Home Theater.  Any ideas how to fix this?  It appears the channels menu can be called up using plexserver://channels/ , however i haven't found a way to manipulate this to get at the channels (iTunes, iPhoto, ...) directly. Any help that can be provided is appreciated

While it's true that no Retroplex skin has been updated to include all current PHT features, that doesn't mean it has to crash. I've just tested re-installing it myself, and within its (obsolete) limitations it works fine.

But some of the versions available will crash, as they are too obsolete to work at all with current PHT.

The version I use is called "Retroplex-next-beta", and its specific version number is v1.1.9 (stated in its addon.xml).
It is the one on the github page currently linked to in the first post of this thread.

Note that it's possible to instead download the 'master' branch from the same download link of the same page, and that version of the skin is completely obsolete and unusable with current PHT. So make sure that the branch selector gadget on that page shows "next-beta" as the active branch before you use the ZIP download link.

Btw: Regardless of the skin used, even with the original default skin, PHT may still crash occasionally at launch.
This has happened sporadically with ALL versions of PHT.
(Something about its initialization seems randomly unreliable.)
