      Looks great and seems very complete... only suggestion is (and I think you probably already thought of it), allow customizing the color of the highlights or making different colors available..

                Superb skin! Will look forward to its release.
                Not that red looks bad or anything, but if there is an ability to change the theme to other colors, it would be just perfect!

                    Thank's guys!

                    I have to disappoint you in color theme. I thought of it at the beginning and changeable font color too, but I also thought keeping appearance close to original. Also to make just one new color theme I need to make new set of screens which is huge job and second or more sets of screens just grow skin out of proportions.

                    Good news is I made screens to Enforcer's Traffic Cams plugin and Fuel Prices plugin screens are next in line.

                      Looking at it, it would be very easy to make different colour schemes from just one set of images.

                      Where you currently have the red, just make it transparent and then the background can be set to a one colour backgroun image, ie in your case red, but if someone wanted say green, then they can create a green background to their taste.

                        Not bad idea but red indicators are part of colour scheme, so it going to look messy if only change top and bottom red shadows to blue for example.

                        If there is a pressing need to customize skin, black background is background which can be change to what please you. Altough there's not going to be menu to change background and change have to make manually from skin.ini.

                          Any estimate on when it will be ready for public consumption?

                            I'm a huge fan of the simplicity of this skin, nothing more than what you need. Any plans on incorporating sirius/xm in the mix? Also, when selecting a video or song I would recommend making the font larger... If I were to want to search for a song, it would be easier/safer to find one if I didn't have to search through a long list. It would also be easier to select with my fat fingers. Just my 2 cents, great work so far.

                              To cd36:
                              Soon I have not set eta because i don't like deadlines... Skin is fully functional and I could release it right away but I still want to make few things before release.

                              To bbagley:
                              I have said this before, I like to test all things what I make to minimizing issues. Because I don't have Sirius/XM, I should do it "in blind" which I don't like.
                              ...But I don't mind if someone who have access to Sirius/XM want to make "add-ons"... after first release.
