Great theme joey, thanks heaps. Just wondering if its possible to show actor/director names, ratings and time in the pirates theme just like you have in the expendables theme(screenshots page 1). Having so many movies i love having all the info right there infront of me to make navigating easier. By the way, love how fast it is.
I was able to actors playing with it:
<text x="78" y="96" w="640" h="26" text="@@browse_text" fontsize="24" textcolor="0xffffff" align="left" speed="1" delay="4" />
<text x="78" y="125" w="640" h="26" text="@@totaltime" fontsize="18" textcolor="0xbbbbbb" align="left" />
<text x="78" y="149" w="160" h="26" text="@@genre" fontsize="18" textcolor="0xcccccc" align="left" disable_tail_dots="1" />
<text x="78" y="174" w="607" h="52" text="@@actor" fontsize="18" numlines="2" textcolor="0xffffff" align="left" />
<text x="78" y="250" w="635" h="175" text="@@overview" fontsize="18" numlines="7" linespacing="1" textcolor="0xffffff" align="left" disable_tail_dots="1" />
<text x="140" y="678" w="1000" h="24" text="@@browse_text" fontsize="24" textcolor="0xffffff" align="hcenter" speed="1" delay="1" />
What I would like to figure out is @@browse_text changed to just show "Movie Name" instead of "File.Name.avi"
You will also notice I had to drop the @@overview to accomodate the actors. Now keep in mind that this whole page may completely change as it is still beta and Joey is still changing things.

@@browse_text is changed in the firmware (hard coded can't be changed). Showing the Movie name was actually how it was originally, but then they broke it so that it showed the file name, then fixed it (sort of) 3 releases back.
If your looking for it to show the file name rather than the movie name, you can add this line instead of @@browse_text:
<text text="@@focused_title" x="90" y="93" w="1100" h="40" fontsize="36" textcolor="0x82df00" align="hcenter" speed="1" delay="2" />
I'm not sure if it will work in Gallery view, because I haven't tried (should though), but it does work for the other views.

I'm new to movie sheets but, once I got to grips with (the rather confusing) ThemeGen, I got this theme up and running on my Hub in no time. I love the way it looks, with the sheen and the reflections on the covers.
However, I do find that the pages load fairly slowly. The 12 thumb view (third image down in your smaple images) is particularly slow to advance to the next page of thumbnails. Is it simply because it is loading 12 x ~900k PNG thumbnails (renamed as JPG), or is the hub just bad with moviesheets?

I wanted the design of the Gallery View to only contain 'Basic' info... (Name,Genre,Runtime & Plot)
and the "Info View" to have 'Extended' Info (Actors,Director,Year etc).
It was a deliberate design choice, to keep the 'Gallery View' clutter free and provide basic info about the movie,
and give 'Info View' another 'Separate Look".
Thumbnail page and Preview page are slow, im currently looking into ways to improve speed and functionality.

Yeah I like the simplistic look myself. I used the other moviesheets and whilst it is great to know if its 1080p dts etc...that soon gets boring, especially after you play with moviesheets for a while, I seem to know them all off by heart. Before you know it you are changing font sizes to cram everything in, and you only want to see the plot once you start watching anyway.
I just wish I could get my TV folders to look as good, If it did not take a lifetime to copy them all to my internal hard drive, I would. Just to stop it all looking so untidy.
I thought I had come up with a cunning plan to show only Blurays as well, I was going to add a Genre of "Bluray" to all my Rips (it would have taken forever of course), but luckily I only changed 3 XML files, but 2 things against that, 1 you obviously can only see 1 genre, and 2, for some reason the only Genres my filter can see are Action, Comedy, Unknown, and there are way more than that....
By the way Joey, maybe these guys need reminding that all you have to do is select options/view info and they get all the Actor/Director info from that.

I hope wd team will improve the next firmware to let us make the xml and music sheet in offline mode (Thumbgen theam has proggramed music sheet support), yesterday I spent the whole afternoon to made them, 'cause I can't have my hub connect to the web and to my 42' TV at the same time (my router is in a different room and unfortunately the hub doesn't suppurt wifi) so I use a composite cable to connect it to a small lcd tv.......but I found that sometimes you have to use the get info function on every tracks of an album to have the hub put it all togheter otherwise you get two album in the music wiew one with info and the cover and the other without, and that's really annoying! Another bed thing: when you use the get info on the album folder you get all tracks have the same name as the album when you browsing the tracks list ...........what???!!! (if you connect the hub to a pc you see that everything its right and the hub doesn't change metadata or else, so why all the tracks have the same title??!)
Sorry about my English
