How to alter the viewing templates (if possible)?

Postby opet » Tue Mar 04, 2008 3:14 pm

Hello peeps,

Just bought DVDpedia and very happy with it. Works like a charm with Remote Buddy.

One thing I would like to change though, is the size of the covers/posters in full screen view. I've put in some time to find some really nice high res movie posters, but they look really small on the full screen view. Would it be possible to maybe only have three covers on the screen instead of the current five? Or to show the cover/poster much larger on the detail view?

Thank you for the feedback. At the moment there is no way to change them. They are 1/3 the size of the screen and the details view one can't get too big as the text needs to be read from afar for those using it on the TV. As mentioned on other threads some users would like to see a Front Row like view and/or a Cover Flow view. We are looking at the possibility of adding those in the future with Core Animation and that would allow us to add more customization as Core Animation takes care of a lot of the hard calculations. However there is no time frame for this as Core Animation is a Leopard only feature and we still support Tiger and would like to do so for as long as we can without hurting the development of DVDpedia.
