Tron Theme

Postby myrkr » Thu Feb 17, 2011 6:59 am

I've been on a Tron kick lately. I started with the old Tron font for the title, but I liked it better this way. It relies heavily on css3 text-shadow, and font-embedding, so make sure you have a decent browser.

Seems that I can't upload it. Probably because it's a new account. Uploaded preview images to picasa. I'll upload the files when I can. (edit: Uploaded pictures in next post.)

Not finished
  • not sure I like the purple "Series, HD" on program details. I might make it blue.
  • list bullet still a holdover from retro theme. I'm not sure what a better bullet would be though.
  • Blinkingcursor also.
  • unchanged epggrid show type outline color.
  • unskinned icons: epg**arrow.png and showtype*.png

Problems I encountered.
  • record_dot_onetime.png and record_dot_series.png on the search results page are not easily replaceable. I replaced the images in static/images. I guess I could do it with a javascript snippet.
  • I wished I could place the channel numbers below icons on the grid epg page. The two column table made it difficult so i left it alone. Again, I probably could cut it up in javascript.
  • Thumbnails not showing up in program details. I couldn't find it listed as a bug anywhere. They showed up in the recorded tv grid.

I can upload now. I'm moving the images here.

I realized I should contact the font designer before redistributing the font. I'll get back with that in a bit.

To get the nice red dots for recording in the grid (pun not intended but still awesome), the zip file should merge with "C:\ProgramData\RemotePotato". The font can be downloaded from and placed in "C:\ProgramData\RemotePotato\static\skins\Tron\fonts".
