In order to demonstrate some of the capabilities of MythUI and provide an example for new themers to follow, an example theme is being worked on. This theme models each screen after a different third party media application. What better way to highlight the versatility of the MythTV UI than making mythtv look like several different applications at once?

Once complete the full theme and it's images will be made available here.

N.B. All artwork in the mythui versions was created from scratch, except for the fanart/banners which were obtained from themoviedb.org. Nothing was taken from the original versions, the mythui versions were created based on the screenshots alone. Font styles and sizes could have been made to match better, however finding good substitutes was not considered a good use of time. The mythui sceenshots are PNG and the thumbnail scaling in Wikipedia has rendered them blurry compared to the original JPGs, this fuzziness does not exist in the TV/monitor image.

You can download a copy of the theme here. The theme is *not* complete for everyday use, it exists purely as a demonstration of MythUI techniques. Notably, the menu is not easily used. Please do not attempt to use it in production, but rather as a learning tool in writing your own theme.
