    Post your Community Skin themes and custom set-ups

    Following the lead of groover km I've made this sticky thread to post all your custom Community Skin set-ups and saved themes.

    Lets see if we can get some great looking themes for others to download...

    Large Print TV Guide (Community3)

    Payback... for the great help from Roy and McBainUK
    Using Roy's bits and some of my own and some from HiVis... I built an ultra-high vis large font version (my dear wife calls it her "Large Print TV Guide").
    Most of the visibility comes from just enlarging the fonts with a 5 row layout of channels.
    But I also tweaked larger cell width and smaller height to be able to squeeze in three rows of large print description at the bot-of-screen. This LargePrint version is the only thing that works on the old TVs and the old wife that we have - maybe it'll help others.

    LOL oh you have been through that as well !!

    I had a quick flirtation with 1.08 and decided all was not well and returned to 99.12

    1.0.16 came out and I took the plunge again but it was still a bit early I'm afraid lots of things just a bit strange

    I've tweaked my TV Guide for 6 channels with larger text, and combined elements mostly from Avance and Sassari. Menu is pretty bland - I want my VA panel back!

    Attached are pictures and themes from this moment in time. Of course, by the time you read this, it will all have changed.
    What, me worry?

    ok, I was trying really hard not to clog this thread with random posts...

    but 1. awesome roy, I actually recognize the channel icons you have

    2. why? why!? do people always use that image with the diagonal lines in other places, that are not square at all. I have seen it done by at least 3 people now!

    sigh, I digress. your themes look good guys, if only I used the community skin but i really like sassari, the way it originally was... I also like not having to install so much. I however, do not like having to skin the whole thing myself

    Thanks, I'm in Southern NH which is Boston viewing area.

    I've wondered about that myself. I think that image is used when you select Sassari as the text background item.
    edit: It's also used as 'list background' image, but what you see in the guide is 'text background', I think.
