HTPC Rainmeter themes

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey Guys,

Have had my HTPC(s) going for quite a while now. Recently I stumbled across the whole Rainmeter desktop theme world.
This got me wondering if anyone has created a really good theme that works well with a HTPC that is normally controlled via the standard MCE remote...

If anyone has some screen shots, and download links to their creations, that would be awesome.
If we get enough in interest, a database of these themes would be good for future builders..

Cheers

Great idea!
I don't have anything setup for a MCE remote but I am fairly proficient with RainMeter and may be able to assist. I have created some Rain skins for my preferred HTPC app and would more than gladly help start a RainMeter following here.
If you have some specifics in mind please voice them and we can see what multiple minds can come up with.
FYI my HTPC app is J.River Media Center which is video/audiophile oriented.

Could you share your JRiver skins please, I found the RiverFront skin and have used/modded that but don't have any more than basic player controls and cover art. I didn't think it was possible to use a remote to interact with rainmeter, I'm only familiar with mouse actions, and also I'd like it to sit above a fullscreen app - do you know if any of this is possible?

my MCE remote works in some scenarios through win7, so I thought if a rainmeter theme was created with the remote in mind, we could have something quite easy to use...
You might need to use a third party app to force rainmeter to sit above full screen apps... but this would get rather annoying when watching a movie no....?
