    so what are you using to make those cool mac images?
    is there a special plugin for PHotoshop or Fireworks?

    I really like the Think Twice screen! Beautiful.

    I also like the "XM" button as I think it means you might have an XM app for the Mac? The only one I'm aware of runs the XM PCR, not the Direct.

    Hello... my first post here... I'm a n00b

    Just wanted to chime in and say thanks for developing this.. can't wait to see it in it's finished state.... MMC on OS X... very cool!

    I'm a designer by trade and was wondering if the MMC skins will allow for transparent-24 PNG's? If so, that will alleviate the funky dithering going on in the drop shadows behind the buttons. What is involved in making a skin? I'm interested in getting my feet wet w/ this!

    yes it will, I am horrible at photoshop, i have good ideas but suck at graphics...lol its very easy everything is xml based x and y coordinates and attributes. it supports animated gifs, bmp, png, jpg its alot like building a web page

    here is an example of the xml code for that home page on mmc:

    <view id="mainMenu" backgroundImage="twice.jpg">
    <button
    id="hybridLogoButton"
    x="320"
    y="440"
    width="155"
    height="38"
    normalImage="think.jpg"
    action="mmc.RebuildDatabase()"/>


    <button
    id="powerButton"
    x="676"
    y="476"
    width="128"
    height="128"
    normalImage="poweron.png"
    toggleImage="poweroff.png"
    action="mmc.Exit()"/>
    <button
    id="musicButton"
    x="1"
    y="71"
    width="270"
    height="78"
    normalImage="music.gif"
    action="mmc.MusicPlayer()"/>

    <button
    id="videoButton"
    x="1"
    y="149"
    width="270"
    height="78"
    normalImage="video.gif"
    action="mmc.VideoScreen()"/>
    <button
    id="dvdButton"
    x="1"
    y="227"
    width="270"
    height="78"
    normalImage="dvd.gif"
    action="mmc.DVDPlayer()"/>
    <button
    id="radioButton"
    x="1"
    y="305"
    width="270"
    height="78"
    normalImage="radio.gif"
    action="mmc.RadioScreen()"/>

    <button
    id="relaysButton"
    x="1"
    y="383"
    width="270"
    height="78"
    normalImage="relay.gif"
    action="mmc.RelayScreen()"/>
    <button
    id="photoButton"
    x="1"
    y="461"
    width="270"
    height="78"
    normalImage="photo.gif"
    action="mmc.PhotoAlbum()"/>


    so as you can see there is a button command, id= "name" x,y coordinates.. attributes (width and height of the image) normal image is the file name and action is what you want the button to do.

    right now, pretty tricky. Mainly due to the UI stuff. The backend stuff is not so bad. The UI implementation of System.Windows.Forms is aways off from the current 2.0 MS version. So I have had to do a bit of hacking for the UI stuff on Mac OS X. So far I am doing everything in Cocoa / Carbon, so it's very quick. I will also be making an AppleScript dictionary for MMCX, so others could control it or get info from it for other things...

    Thanks

    Ah! that's excellent... looks like it'll be easy to skin!

    Just out of curiosity, what is it that needs to be done in the .Net framework exactly?

    Thanks for all your work on this so far, Ben!

    This looks fantastic. Keep it up.

    I think I'll visit the apple store today and look at a Mini
