XBian skin
Hello,
Currently we are working on a xbian skin.
It is based on Confluence, to keep as much close to xbmc.
Options
- qwerty keyboard
- Custom background slideshow during music playback
- Hiding of various home menu items and sub menu items.
- Weather widget
- Weather condition as background (you need to install the weather files)
- System info
- Addon shortcuts to addons
- And much more


Home


Weather widgets


Recently added albums


Xbian-config under system



Home window options


Background options


Addon shortcuts

Get it via github

RE: XBian skin
Love the "New" system information. Not too sure we need to see the build data as that is not going to change whilst the system is up. I would get rid of it, but the IP, Temp and memory are perfect. Especially the temperature. Any chance to "flag" a warning if it gets too high. Say >change the colour if it get's above a certain threshold. (Enhancement)

---------------------- Errors -------------------------------------------
Hide TV SHOWS doesn't work. I deselected it, but it is still there.
Hide Music Songs can't be selected.
Background options "Custum" playback background - Spelling mistake.
xbmc keyboard defaults to the letter "a" - should be "done"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Is there, or going to be, a Wiki page or similar to detail what each option does? Some seem a bit confusing and we need a way of defining what each option does.

I'd also recommend removing the "inline" images and just have a referral to screen shots.

I personally don't like the "bubbles" background and I think for an xbian skin we need something different to differentiate it from the normal confluence.

I actually like the new Raspbmc skin - minus the big R as I like the red and black and the flowing effect. I'm not a fan of "branding" so don't put a big XBIAN logo on the background - it's tooooo windoze.

However, I love the improvements and thanks for the work you have done.

I like the hard drive picture from the ACE skin and would love to have that.

Thank you for your work on this.

RE: XBian skin
Have not checked the latest skin but according to IriDium the CPU load is displayed again in system info? It was removed because displaying it would push the CPU usage to 100% because of the scrolling issue, or is this fixed?

RE: XBian skin
At idle - home page - cpu is around 25% idle for Xbian - confluence is about 20%. So a slight overhead.

Displayed Temp is the same as vcgencmd.

Woops - my mistake. CPU is not displayed on the "System Widget".
IP, Temp, Memory and Version are displayed.

CPU IS shown in the standard System Info. As expected ~98%

Will look in to those errors asap, not today, i think this weekend.
The background can be changed via the background options.

As for the wiki, i don't know. ATM the xbian wiki is still offline, and even i don't know why....

RE: XBian skin
Can you add support for VideoExtra plugin?

And add option to control the time in which images from weather background are changing.

I tried adding it manually ... but it refuses to accept it.
