Have a look at this new talisman theme I've created.

I was thinking of incorporating the new dTV/dScaler logo somewhere,

any improvements or ideas are welcome.

BTW if there will be demand I'll post it later for download.

The theme was created for 800x600 resolutions, but I can modify it

for any resolutions . In fact my next theme will be a 16:9

version and will include DTS and THX logos .


Thanks for the hosting offer, after we will decide what is the final version I probably

post it on your site.

That's a nice looking theme! I'd be interested in a 16:9 version with the additional logos.


Unfortunately, for now I've gone back to the Windows desktop (arrrgh!) because I need the hotkey capability of running desktop shortcuts. I'm hoping they make that work someday soon.

Phat,


I've been using it as a shell, not in the Windows startup. It seemed more stable this way. I found that as a startup I got hangs, and used more system resources. However, it may have been more a problem before I registered. It seemed to work ok recently when I tried it, but I just couldn't trust it and I didn't think to try the shortcuts at the time. I'll give it another try. Thanks.

Although I dont have the skill to make some kind of automated submission system built in to the website, I will happily make a section that anyone can post me their theme and a VGA sized display image and I will post them on the site with links to your own details / websites / whatever...


What do you think of this ?? basically try to make some kind of online HTPC theme repository rather than just my themes...

Looks great. Can't wait for the next gen 16x9 version. Any chance it could be 1360x768? Looks like something Dila users would love. My mistake, maybe with the soon to be released Panamorph we would be better off with 1360x1024. Any chance in that?

The theme repository seems like a great idea and I 'll be more than happy

to host the themes on my site. Special Request themes are welcome so maybe

we will start a poll to choose the best resolutions for them

(like dila, dlp, rptv resolutions ). BTW I'll post the first

theme on later today .

I'm with Martin. Love the theme, and the only thing holding me back is resolution. There is usually way too much upscaling to do on the smaller themes.


Any chance of a 1360 wide version?

Theme looks good, hope something like this can turn a spark into a fire. Anxious to see some more imaginative ideas from other members pertaining to a "HTPC" theme. Glad to see some are doing something, for awhile it just seemed like myself and Phat Phreddy....Here is the link to the HTPC i made up a couple months back...Since then, i have created a 16:9 version that is 1024x576 pixels and looks dead on:
