With great pleasure, I finally present publicly my latest project, which is none other than my new skin called Glamour Aura FHD. It's a labour of more than a year in the making and testing!
Glamour Aura FHD (GAFHD) is a Full High Definition and High graphic resolution skin for receivers running Enigma2 and the recent OpenPLI/OpenPLI-based images.
Due to it's high resolution graphical nature, GAFHD was designed and optimized to run on new generation receivers. The minimal requirement is an STB with a CPU of 750 Mhz (2000 DMIPS).

GAFHD is also a skin you can contribute to. The ipk of the skin is distributed with closed converters/renderers, but all the python code along with the skin code is available on Github.
You can find the source code here:
Code:
https://github.com/MCelliotG/GlamourAuraFHD-skin
You can pull your requests, make recipes for it and I will push contributions after testing.

GAFHD on par with its graphical user interface is fortified with an extended python system that runs along with OpenPLI's enviroment, providing it with some exclusive new features.

SCREENSHOTS and extended features presentation
1. Main Infobar

The main infobar is divided into two sections. The top section contains all frequency and signal info. GAFHD is the first skin that fully supports real-time info for Multistream services, showing MIS info when such a service is tuned. Up to 12 tuners can also be displayed. The left top part is a weather panel which shows today's weather. Weather info requires the MSN weather plugin to be installed and configured (instructions will follow).

The top infobar will also display full stream URL and stream type when a service is stream.

The lower section is the main infobar which contains along with the program info, an extended service info icons panel, including icons for audio/video codecs, a full exact framerate display, and a short weather panel which shows the current weather condition. GAFHD can also display a live bitrate if the bitrate plugin is installed and configured (this will be explained below as well).

The lowest part of the main infobar is the extended encryption info. GAFHD uses a new detection feature which shows all available caids and encryption system names of a service.

NOTE: The skin works best with 400X240 picon size.

2. Second infobar
The second infobar brings an amplitude of extra information for both the service and the system layout. The weather panel shows additional info on tomorrows weather.

The upper layers show the pids of the service in decimal format and also real time info on connected storage devices, memory and swap.The middle part displays now and next program extended description.

3. Channel selection screens
Channel selection along with the service list on the right displays the extended program description on the left, the five following events and also a new transponder info panel which also shows the stream type and stream url on a stream service and transponder info for the rest.

6. Language selection
GAFHD is a truly multilingual skin. It utilizes the new Aura new font I created based on Roboto and Noto fonts the skin is able to show Greek, Cyrillic, Arabic and Georgian among others. More alphabets can be added by request.

INSTRUCTIONS:
1) Download the ipk of the file. Send the file to /tmp your receiver using an FTP program. Then you can install it manually via telnet or via the software manager.
Manually:
Code:
opkg install /tmp/enigma2-plugin-skins-glamouraurafhd_RC.4_all.ipk
2) FOR BITRATE INFO
The bitrate plugin is essential for bitrate to work. You can download it from the plugins menu. For correct display in the skin it needs to be configured as follows:
Code:
mode: as infobar,

style skin: compact,

background window: transparent-black,

X screen position: 1645,

Y screen position: 0837,

Z screen position: 14.
The correct settings are also shown in the screencap below:

3) FOR WEATHER INFO
The weather info requires the msn weather plugin to be installed. I have included the ipk as well. After installation you can configure your location via its settings menu.


NOTE: For IPTV streams serviceapp is highly recommended with this skin.
IMPORTANT NOTE:
As stated above, GAFHD is designed to work well ONLY for receivers with a CPU higher than 750Mhz. This is an obligatory limitation due to the high resolution graphical nature of the skin which also makes the package large in size. For receivers with slower CPUs use at your own risk! Also, GAFHD for the moment will not work on any other images (such as OE-A) than OpenPLI and OpenPLI-based images (like SatDreamGr, etc).


I want to personally thank my beta testers for their feedback. I encourage developers to contribute to the skin's further development in github.
I really hope you enjoy my work.
