Thanks, credit really goes to idorel77 for the look, I just adjusted it from being touch to rotary button friendly.
Yes, I am using it but only for music. Haven't tweaked any of the other buttons on the home screen yet. I've been busy replacing front end suspension components and brakes so hopefully will have some time to dedicate to Kodi skinning shortly.
Will let you guys know when I have something suitable for sharing.

  • Creating/modifying skins can be quite overwhelming especially for newbs like moi.
Due to the above, this is slow work in progress. I've got the Music working well enough to use but all the other menus need the XML files adjusted to use the rotary button. Here is what i've got so far...
Does it work on Kodi17?
Do you have seen this skin-mod http://raspicarprojekt.de/showthread.php?tid=790 on german forum?
Version for Kodi 17 is in progress.

Hi Harry,
I have not tried it yet on 17 as I'm running OpenElec 7.0.1 which I believe has Kodi 16.1 Jarvis.
Just having a quick look on the current posts at https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php...082#pid2597082 I think others have tried on 17 without success.
No, I haven't been to that german forum before but the screen shots look very similar or possibly another fork of CarPC touch which I think is based on re-Touched.
Great to see we've re-generated a level of interest back in skin development

@Pete, how much power can your board deliver?

I mean how much Amps (A) ?

Planning something with many consumers...
