After long time as Syabas PCH user, I have just ordered a MED600X3D.

I would be also interested in a cinemascope skin (2.40:1 or 21:9 or whatever you want to call it) since I have a 2.40:1 screen (projector)

I don't need to display a different resolution.. It's ok to display/project the menu in 16:9 at 1920x1080 (for example) but only show images/icons/texts in the 1920x800 cinemascope window (and black bars up and down).

From what I understand it's physically not possible to move icons/texts.. is this a technical restriction or it's just something difficult to implement? (for the final user I mean)

The issues as explained in my post before is skinning does not change the layout of icon displays.  You could create a home menu system of this aspect..poossibly even "about" images..but once you dropped down into an icon display it would be 16:9.

You may also have to select what type of subtitle you use. I'm told not all types can be moved vertically to overlay a letter boxed movie.

So if having a letterboxed Home Menu system..dropping back to 16:9 elsewhere..would be reasonable then please confirm. I'm sure the guys may be able to come up with something that just does that.

Thanks for the interest :D

I still did not get the MED600X (it's still on pre-order, i hope it goes out this week) so I not know exactly what this box is able to to in comparison with my ex/current PCH

I do not need that *everything* is letterboxed in cinemascope.

What would be really nice (Prio1) is that everything related to the media libvrary, like cover art preview, movie sheets and so on is shown in cinemascope-letterboxed modus...

The "home page", the youtube thing and the setup is not so prioritary... actually I don't care at all if this is displayed in 16:9

Regarding the subtitlles.. the subtitles should be displayed inside the image (like in the theaters) and not in the "black bars" (black bars = wall in my case) :) but that's not a skinning issue I guess..

If you check  you will see that is all the guys are creating.  Various forms of Eye Candy for the intiial Home Menu System.

Well.. My personal usage of a media player is 90% watching movies and 10% looking for movies.. The time I spend on the upper level menues is so irrelevant that I consider it to be close to 0% :)

I am just testing it at present to check that there are no bugs, but should be released soon.

Isn't 50% of that the Yamj graphics?

Support for changing the graphics code through flashing is not there.

With the NMT people offer fellow users a complete skin package, new  code , new GUI, and new yamj outputs which only work  with the new code.

You don't get that here. You can't use code specific yamj. You  are limited to updating the home menu graphics only, and not the code behind it.

Apologies if this issue has already been covered but...

The images displayed on the homescreen using a custom skin are displaying at an incorrect resolution.

Once I enter a sub menu they fine.

Mede8er 1000X3D, 50" Sammy Plasma, Marantz 1402 Amp

EDIT: My bad, the skins I'm downloading are compatible with X2, not X3... :-[

Please advise
