Heya guys!

I'm using my Raspberry Pi as XBMC 12 box right now, but I find the default skin to be WAY too hard to read (and I'm usually pretty fine with small text) from across the room.

I know that for version 11 there seem to be some skins, however I tried installing one of these and they seem to not be compatible.
The default add-on repo only shows 2 skins - both of them being "broken".


Any thoughts?
It's a 4:3 30" or so CRT TV, so yeah, quite a tough limitation.

Sorry for hijacking your thread GS, but how's that device working out as a media centre? Does it perform (reasonably) well and stuff like that?

As for skins, I really have no idea... If I remember right, though, it should be XML based? If that's the case you should be able to change things quite easily...

Great Scott!, you're right! heh.

Nah, I can't right now, no one has them in stock and I am moving to another country soon, so I can't really wait for them to ship, sadly my inner geek will have to wait.

lol, If you have a Maplins near you, you could buy one in-store more than likely, not sure where in the world you are atm

[url="http://www.maplin.co.uk/raspberry-piandreg-board-and-starter-kit-652805"]Here is a kit they sell[/url], they might sell them separately, not sure - I'd have thought the demand for them would have lessened by now, I got mine from from [url="http://raspberrypi.rsdelivers.com/default.aspx?cl=1"]here[/url]
