Metallurgy(n. The study of metals)
Widescreen theme & OSD for Mythtv 0.21� Stuart Morgan
This theme blends metal and glass effects with an attempt to layout pages a little differently from past themes. The OSD is the first high-resolution theme offered for mythtv and uses transparency so that you don't miss any of the action on-screen.
There is a choice of colour schemes including Blue, Red, Green and Purple. More colour schemes may be offered in the future.
Download links can be found at the bottom of the page.

- Q: Why is the clock/date missing on many pages?
A: This is a limitation of the current UI library. As more pages are ported to mythui the clock will appear on every single page.
- Q: Will this theme work with versions earlier than 0.21?
A: No. It requires 0.21.
- Q: Will you release a 4:3 version?
A: No. There is a lot of work involved and as I don't have a 4:3 frontend it's not a high prority, unless I'm paid a fair rate to do it.
- Q: Can I request a different colour?
A: Within reason I'll listen to requests for different button colour schemes, but if things get out of hand then I'll have to start refusing.
- Q: Have you made any other MythTV themes?
A: No, this is my first and was never planned, it evolved from a discussion on IRC. I can't say if I'll create more themes, it has taken a lot of time away from my code work but if I have a good idea, then I might do another.
- Q: Where did you get the images?
A: All the theme images, apart from the mythtv logo are original, drawn by me. The background was created from a photograph of a brushed aluminium panel on my MythTV fe/be
- Q: Can I use your images in my theme? Can I copy your theme, change some things and release it?
A: No. It is released under the Creative Commons Attribution, No Derivitives license. I made this decision to protect MythTV from drowning in a mess of half-baked themes. Try and show a little originality, what you come up with could be a lot better than if you just re-hash older themes. Opensource should be about exploring new ideas and not just re-using old ones. Contact me if you would like to discuss use of my artwork.
