where are you searching from ? if it's from the audio_browser then you are using the ratings/search plug-in developed by El-Camino. For this to work, you must have Active Winamp installed and also have your media liberary added to winamp ... this is outlined in some of the help files for the TEk skin.
If you are searching from the audio_player screen then the search is the standard RR search, and should work on any skin you use !
Changing the layout for the ratings screen ... I'll look at for the next update of TEK2.
