    It looks like there's a mismatch with the different screens. Look how well defined are the main buttons to the left and the volume buttons.

    Looks like I've got a mixup between the graphics and skin.xml for the 848x480 and 800x600 versions. Damn. Thanks for letting me know. I'll look into it and post fixes tomorrow morning.

    I was comparing the images you posted to what they "should" be, and noticed that the first image you posted is from the FIRST version of the skin. In the latest revision, the bottom black bar (that contains the buttons for volume control, the player/radio controls and dim/vis, etc) extends all the way left and right, and touches the bottom of the screen like in the second pic you posted. See the difference? Looks like you've got a mix of different versions. Sorry for the confusion.

    I recommend downloading the latest Stretched 800x600 and replacing what you have. Let me know if that doesn't fix the issue with the bottom bar/controls not lining up.

    -Meta

    PS. I will be changing the MUTE button per GizmoQ's suggestion. Also, FYI, from comments I've heard from David regarding functionality in the future, I purposely left out the MIXER button, as I gather that will be in the Tools/Utilities section later, and the "blank" button on the far right is purposely there to house a future global "exit" button. The graphics are already in place, I just can't assign an action to it yet.

    Dear Sir,

    I must first say that I think this is the best skin for CF that anyone has thought up so far. And in my haste to get it installed in my system, I took certain liberties with your creation. This letter is a formal apology for being a nuisance to the proper development of this effort. I hearby yeild to the greater talent and greater good of the community.

    Until I get and learn photoshop for the creation of my own skins, I will only tweak skins for my personal use and never share mods to someone else's baseline. In my defense, when you first posted the skin and disappeared for two weeks, I took it upom myself to finish it for you and the rest of the community thinking you had abandoned the project. Boy was I wrong.

    I have only been a member here for less than 6 months and have learned a great deal. I only wanted to contribute back to that community. For example: To eliminate that annoying scrolling volume label increase the value of the skin/globalnav/labels/volume/width setting by an increment of 20 (on mine I went from 90 to 110) and voila a stable volume label from 0-100%.

    From now on I will continue to make recommendations and in my free time try to create my own skins to share with the community.

    Meta keep up the great work.

    Sincerely,

    Giz

    I got it to work with FP but I don't know if it'll work with CF yet. I imagine it will since radiator is the one controlling the hauppage. I'll send you a PM so we don't hijack this thread.

    Downloading the lastest fixed the mismatch, but the radio screen still looks off

    By the way, IMHO the main buttons on the left looked more clear on the first version than on the second. For example, look at the difference in the DVD buttons between the two versions. Is it possible to make them look like the originals?

    Do you mean the outer edge of the buttons was clearer, or the white part (the white icon of the DVD, Video, Radio, Globe, etc)? In the original version, the off/down states were pure white. Later, tho, I applied a "satin" effect to the icons in the "off" state to give it a little 'flash' and to make a bigger distinction between the two states.
