Hello HQ just wanted to pop in and tell you all about an over looked feature in XBMC.
I have spent a lot of time setting it up but it was worth the work put in, and let all the folks at HQ know about it if thay dident know it could be done.
Im talking wide icons here (so nice on the eyes) and if you can over look the glair then here is a small sample of the wide icons in use.

If this looks like something you wold want to add to your XBMC then the how to info can be found here: http://www.xboxmediacenter.com/wiki/index.php?title=Thumbnails#Wide_Icons
One last XBMC add on in the scripts i wold like to tell you about (a must have for me ) is Xinbox, this email script can be downloaded with XBMC script from your xbox or here: http://www.xbmcscripts.com/
The site is down right now but keep checking as the xinbox is grate for checking all your online mailboxes from your XBMC dash.
Now for anyone out that that has tryed xinboxs older builds let me say thay have made some grate and well needed upgrades to it.
Thanx for reading this and any questions on the XBMC features in this topic, post them here. Very Happy

Thats cool man. I use XBMC primarily for movies. I like the IMDB lookup for movie icons/info.

Yeah i wasent all that in to the wrap but i wold use it if thay wold make like 4 row stacks and you could move up and down.

The single row bugs me and i dont know why.

Do you use the wide icons with wrap?
