As a new member of AVS Forums, I first want to say "Hi all".
Thanks for such a great piece of software. I just received my 6500 yesterday and I've added tons of art already...
Anyhow, I want to talk to you about a couple of software ideas I have for TGB. I spent a little time today developing some simple graphics for icon browsing, such as "Video", "Audio", "Photo", "DVD Library", etc. In the near future I'll be developing complete 3D background packages that really spice up the TVIX GUI. I'd be willing to share my work with you if you'd be interested in writing a revision that gives the user the option to select 1 of many skins for each folder background/icon, rather than only having the ability to customize dvd covers.
A lot of this will be driven from the support we receive from TVIX. For example, they'd have to implement code that would allow to use different background images based on whether the folder was in icon mode or not. I can't see TVIX adding this, unless we give them a reason to.
If it's a bit much to take on, I'll still be willing to share with the community. My work load is insane at the moment too, so things will happen slowly.
I'm a Crestron programmer for a CAIP company. I'm not a graphic design artist, but I have implemented many custom Pshop designs for touch panels.
PM me if your interested. We can exchange info and I'll gladly send you some samples and ideas.
