The team that brought you "Maya" is proud to annouce a brand new skin called Avalon!
We have been designing and developing for about one year on a 1920x1080 skin that will offer a clean
and simple layout without compromising the ever growing need for information at a glance.
You will have the choice between several layouts to suit your needs. All configurable from within MP.
(A special thanks to the StreamedMP Team for sharing their code and inspiration)
As you all know from "Maya" we hold on to the concept of making all screens as consistent as possible
for a better user interface experience. (should also enhance the WAF)

In my view this should be the default skin. Sorry to say that, but really the "new" default skin (replacing Blue3) is a step backwards in terms of aethestics in my personal opinion. And it's aesthetics that gives a lot of the first impression to something like MediaPortal.
On a more obscure note, my (let's be honest) rather odd MediaPortal system only has a projector as a display, no LCD panel or similar. And it's a 4:3 projector - still relatively common even though 4:3 LCD panels are really dying out. I just want to say that Avalon essentially works on a 4:3 display with some stretched images (e.g. CD album cover art is rectangular). Personally I can live with it, well I _am_ living with it!
If you haven't tried it before - go! go ! go!
ABER: Bin ich zu blöd oder gibt's keine Maussteuerung bei der Musikwiedergabe? Beim internen Videoplayer habe ich schöne Buttons, mit denen man die Wiedergabe auch mal pausieren kann. Musik? Fehlanzeige. Ich komme auch nicht per Rechtsklick irgendwo in den Hintergrund zurück ins Hauptmenü wie bei den Videos. Hier geht beim Rechtsklick das Dateimenü auf. Soll das so?
Da ich Musik meist nicht über den HTPC höre, stört das nicht wirklich, aber wenn doch, ist Avalon an der Stelle unbedienbar, da man nicht mal eben Pause (oder Stop) drücken kann.
Gut wäre noche ein MediaSlayer Unterstützung und die Untermenüs würde ich auch gerne im Basic-Homescreen einblenden können.
The only niggles I have was the option to change the number of lines for the TV guide and mini guide (which the developer has addressed in a earlier comment) but also in the TV guide the light blue selector and the light blue writing makes it a little hard to read the upcoming shows when scrolling.
But it now my favorite running on all 4 of my clients that I have :-)
Thanks again and keep up the great work!
Includes all the features I wanted:
- Recent recordings.
- A clear and consistent but stylish layout.
The only thing I've found to criticise is
that I wish the TV mini guide included more rows.
Otherwise, 99.9% perfect!
You can set the tvminiguide to have eight rows in the skin config.
Hope that`s the thing you mean.
