Avalon Skin

★★★★★
Great Skin.... and it (more or less) works on 4:3 aspect ratio too
If you want something that is not "geeky" but can really be used in the context of a family living room then look no further - Avalon is the answer. Slick would be the best word to describe it.

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!
