I couldn't get widgetghost to work properly with the Large Grid View without the delay so I thought 'sod it!' and I have used the thumbnail_bg for the two underlays (focused and unfocused) and the overlay I have also added the watched icon which you can see in the screenshots below. I have done something similar to the Gallery View without the watched icons. But I have added the watched icon the Small Grid View.
I have made the thumbnail larger in the List View and made the text area wider and because I have tried to make the List View the backbone of my theme the album playback and hopefully all or most of the settings are the same as it. I have also changed the DVD and video playback xml.
This theme was designed and created to be used on my Hub with firmware 2.07.17 but it seems to work fine on the latest 3.11.10 firmware. I don't know about the SMP but I have included the meta.xml and I have saved it as a zip file with no compression (store).
If you have any problems with any of the themes just post a message and I will try to help you out.

i like this type of theme,
it works perfect for the output from my projector.
This reminds me of my old setup.
A 1080i projector hookup with the old WTDV Gen 1.

Thank you for your reply’s, I'm happy that you like it.
I'm going to share some frontends that I have done, when the pictures have been approved. I will put them together in one post.
Thank you again.

Hello, this is my first post on any forum.
I have created part of a theme that I would like to share with you, a front-end and three video views.
I use the hub to watch movies on a projector, it isn’t high resolution so I have to keep things as minimal and as bold as possible. I wanted a front-end with a similar style to the Sony XMB, Boxee and the XBMC skin Shade, but using the hub’s own icons.
I’ve been experimenting with Manny Miller’s front-ends to get the effects I wanted. I’ve have no idea how to code a line of xml, so I experimented with JoeySmith’s xml’s, deleting parts, getting reboot’s, until what I was left with I kind of understand.
The speed of all the video views I think are good.
I’m using a WDTV Live Hub on firmware 3.05.10
It’s a 78kb download and hope to read your opinions on the theme. If you have any problems with the theme. I’m not sure I will be able to help, because I am still learning as a go, but I will try to help.
The movies are from the 'MOVIE DEMO FOLDER' from Alaska Resurgence download by JoeySmith.
Thank you for viewing my post.
I love the views very nice, great job, i love the original mochi theme and this fits perfectly. I'm not good with the theme editing, any way you could add the the icons and the time to the right corner to some of the views, just a suggestion.

The file is 2.6kb.
I have put the time and the green, red, yellow and blue icons in two of the views in the right corner like you asked, and I have also tidied the views up a bit. I have put the time in the frontend as well. All you have to do is to copy and replace the files to the folder on your Hub
If you like. In the rv_browse_common_widgets_Jersue.xml file, (I hope you don’t me calling it that) you could delete the <!-- and -->
<!--<image image="@@info_icon" x="55" y="71" w="90" h="90"/>-->
<!--<text text="@@info_sub" x="164" y="87" w="500" h="29" fontsize="26" textcolor="0xffffff" speed="1" delay="2"/>
<!--<text text="@@info_main" x="164" y="117" w="500" h="45" fontsize="40" textcolor="@@info_main_color" speed="1" delay="2"/>
<image image="@@info_icon" x="55" y="71" w="90" h="90"/>
<text text="@@info_sub" x="164" y="87" w="500" h="29" fontsize="26" textcolor="0xffffff" speed="1" delay="2"/>
<text text="@@info_main" x="164" y="117" w="500" h="45" fontsize="40" textcolor="@@info_main_color" speed="1" delay="2"/>
The Filter and the Content Source information will now be in the left corner.
I didn’t put the time in originally because on my Hub the time is off about 6 minutes and I don’t know to change it and the Hub isn’t connected to the internet.
And thank you for your comment.
