This is a version of my Darklight theme that I developed for the HUB which I am now porting over to work specifically for the SMP. Remember though, this is still in beta so it is not yet complete.

WARNING: Do not attempt to install / update this or any theme while playing a video. Doing so could corrupt the theme data and adversely affect how the theme is displayed.
This is a theme that requires the use of Thumbgen to have it correctly display as it is intended. If you don’t have Thumbgen you can get it from HERE.
If you don’t know how to setup Thumbgen, you can read this tutorial here THUMBGEN GUIDE (Updated 6-26-12). Even if you have previously read the Guide, this is an updated version and I urge you to re-read it.
Anyway, you will need to download 3 files. The Darklight theme zip file, the Darklight Moviesheet Template zip file which contains the moviesheet template and the Coverbox Template which contains the coverbox template. You can download all of them here:
Darklight theme (UPDATED 9/10/12)
Coverbox Template (UPDATED 5-18-12) - (REMEMBER the Input/Output naming has to be set to .jpg for the coverbox. And you need to use the coverbox templates in this download to have the coverbox reflections to show up correctly. Don’t use my coverboxes from the HUB theme forum.)
Darklight SMP Test folder (UPDATED 5-18-12) - (I recommend downloading this to make sure that you have the data you need to make everything work correctly. Just unzip the folder to your HDD or to a share folder and access it just as you would anyother video folder.)
To install the theme, download the zip file to your PC, open your web browser (I don’t recommend using IE9, there have been issues), then type your SMP’s IP address to open the Web UI. Type in your password (the default is “admin”), click on the box next to “I accept” and then click on LOGIN, then click on “Appearance”, then click on “Browse” and navigate to where you saved the “Darklight.zjp” file, then click on “Open”.
Click on “Submit”, then once the Web UI finishes uploading the theme, on you SMP press “Setup” on your remote, select “Appearance”, then select “User Interface Themes”, select “Darklight” then when prompted select “Apply theme”.
To make moviesheets/backdrops semi-static, on the HUB, select Setup, then select Photo Settings. In the Photo Settings menu, select “Slideshow Transition” and set it to “Fade”, then select “Slideshow Interval Time” and set it for “5 minutes”.
That’s it, now enjoy.

TV Show Episode Cover Box
The TV Shows Episode Cover Box template uses the Fanart 1 (F1) for the cover (which is a backdrop) and Fanart 2 (F2) for the Banner at the bottom. In the TG Options Menu, select the TVShows/Series/Anime tab and then place check marks beside “Use wide bannner (if available) for Fanart 2” and “Retrieve all banners as backdrops…”.
You will need to manually select the “F1” & “F2” button under Backdrops for them to be applied to the Coverbox.
