I have to say that skin looks fantastic and I think it can be used as a
base for some other new skins. You've done a great job on the layout and
all others need to do now is change some images to make new skins. If I
can find the time I might try to make my own new skin based on your layouts.
If you post it to the feature tracker I can finish the TV section and
Adam can hopefully included it in the upcoming 1.9.2 release.
The current skins are one of the big drawbacks with freevo. They look
basic and dated and don't do it justice. There was a discussion in the
past about removing most of the existing skins and only including a few,
high quality skins. If you post yours hopefully others can adopt it to
create their own and this can happen for the next release.
