I'm definitely going to have to rework both xm and sirius skins once i get the equipment for both. The track art for there lists were basically just a stab in the dark... i can get them to work (i believe) by changing some code but if push comes to shove i'll just remove it altogether. Expect major changes in both of those skins.

As for manual tune, the "tune" button serves as the enter button once direct tune has been started. I have no idea why the label wouldnt update after direct tuning though. Does the clear button next to the direct tune frequency dissappear? That indicates the direct tune has been accepted and the label should be updated shortly after that.
I would like to present some of my other findings concerning this beautiful skin if I may. 1. The radio screen is hard to use with the Silabs USB Radio. I am so used to the playlist style channel list, I almost had no idea where to start. I used your presets to create preset buttons, but my radio art wouldn't display. To manually tune, there is no enter and it took me a few minutes to realize once the full channel freq was typed (XXX.XX) it would automatically change to that channel. Unfortunately, freq label doesn't update. Same for seek and scan - once channel is locked onto user has no idea what channel they're on cause freq label is blank.
definite scaling issue.. I'll take a look.
2. Audio screen progress slider doesn't work completely, i.e., if I click on the far right of the slider the song should jump to near the end, but it doesn't it only goes half way. But if I click near the beginning of the slider it goes to 0:00, so I know that end works. Its probably a scaling issue.
it should support it... not for the track art though. If you dont see the main album art with using the plugin try adding a "J" line to the skin file. Like J,0,0,0,0
3. I thought the last version had support for the album art plug-in (X, MP3Art), this one doesn't.
You can hold down the arrows for page down/up. But in all honesty i'd like a scrollbar too. I just dont know how to code it lol. I am looking for a solution for this as well
4. I usually load specific playlists in audio with 100-300 songs each. Scrolling through the playlist is a PITA without page up/page down buttons. A scroll bar like in the browser would help. As a matter of fact a scroll bar (by channel #) in XM would be cool.
5. I can't get the weather maps to load. I can see the autoit script start but it gets paused somewhere and never finishes.
I appreciate this and any feedback i get with this skin.. its been a long time comin believe me!
Hope this helps.
OBTW, I love the skin - lost of clean, professional, beautiful functionality. What really caught my eye was the repeat/shuffle button - just too kewl ;) best eye candy of the whole skin!
