The Skin is Based on Open Pli but it should work well with most other images. I can confirm it also works well with Open ATV.

Feel free to try it on other images (please back up your image first before installation). Do post here if it works well with other images.

The Skin also comes with script for the Top Picks thanks to Wooshman.

This should be installed and chmod 755 automatically when installing the ipk file and it should also create a cron timer for the images to update after every 1hr.

Enjoy & Please don't forget feed backs.

You can't get channel numbers with skins it needs to be done on the image by autobouqete e2, picon channel numbers or No1gooner's epg hack

If anyone ever kept a timelapse video diary of the making of a skin, nobody would ever complain. The amount of research involved with Google images, youtube, hacking android apks to get backgrounds and graphics, sourcing fonts, hacking user manual pdfs to get icons, the photoshop mockups, the endless cycle of coding something and rebooting your box over and over, the tweaks, the questions, the requests. Its endless. Its looking good chabs, i was considering this myself, but source matetial is low at the moment and sky q is very picture orientated, so lots of adlibbing is going to be required. Good luck as i actually think this one is going to be a nightmare
Indeed kiddac...this sky formate as you hav put it down its picture orientated. Am just trying to get the basic layout for a start and trying to play with the horizontal menu style layout instead of the basic listbox.

Am still waiting to crack the infobar graphics and layout as they have the glass transparent format and still not gud in that department of photoshopping yet unlike you. Just done few screens at the moment and am lyk almost giving up...I managed to get a nice 1080p background that tempted me to start playing with the GraphicslEpgPig screen...

I haven't been able to find a screenshot of coloured button use on the sky q.

here is a good video for reference though.

I have seen the vid...the colour buttons I have taken them from the original Sky Qs remote control...the round version

The infobar is rilly awfull and pain in the ass...i hv got few glass frames to go with it but it doesnt show well at all...will try work more on it this weekend to finish up with the basic screens for guys to test it...

Thnx 4 the pngs link...much appreciated... this is how it looks like now....

I'm presuming this won't have the animations when browsing through the screens? Are skin animations even possible on these boxes?

Either way it's looking amazing, stupidly excited to try it out!

id love to see animation if it was possible. I have a feeling it's not though sadly.
Animation and the sparkly glass effect is not possible...very had even to get transparent glossy select bars with E2...
