    The Skin is Based on Open Pli but it should work well with most other images. I can confirm it also works well with Open ATV.

    Feel free to try it on other images (please back up your image first before installation). Do post here if it works well with other images.

    The Skin also comes with chabsskyq.sh script for the Top Picks thanks to Wooshman.

    This should be installed and chmod 755 automatically when installing the ipk file and it should also create a cron timer for the images to update after every 1hr.

    Enjoy & Please don't forget feed backs.

    You can't get channel numbers with skins it needs to be done on the image by autobouqete e2, picon channel numbers or No1gooner's epg hack

    Indeed kiddac...this sky formate as you hav put it down its picture orientated. Am just trying to get the basic layout for a start and trying to play with the horizontal menu style layout instead of the basic listbox.

    Am still waiting to crack the infobar graphics and layout as they have the glass transparent format and still not gud in that department of photoshopping yet unlike you. Just done few screens at the moment and am lyk almost giving up...I managed to get a nice 1080p background that tempted me to start playing with the GraphicslEpgPig screen...
