Install notes:
1. Move the "alaska" folder and its contents to the skins folder of where YAMJ
has been installed to.
2. Either rename the "alaska" folder to "default" or edit the
moviejukebox.properties so that mjb.skin.dir=./skins/alaska instead of
mjb.skin.dir=./skins/default. myIHome users may have to make this change in
myiHome\conf\mjb.properties.
3. Follow this site ( http://code.google.com/p/moviejukebox/wiki/SkinChanging )
for the rest of the directions. Again, myiHome users may have to make these
changes in the myiHome\conf\mjb.properties instead.

================================================================================
Packaging Themes:
1. Store themes in an archive of some sort. ZIP and RAR are the 2 most common
archive formats.
2. A theme must be packaged in a way so that when the user extracts it into the
alaska skin folder, it will overwrite the original files.
2a. A typical theme will contain an html folder, resources folder, and an
options-theme.xml.
3. The html folder should have a theme.css if you intend to change any colors.
================================================================================
Installing Themes:
1. You can quickly test a theme without rebuilding your jukebox. To do this,
extract the skin and navigate into the html folder. You will typically see a
pictures folder and theme.css. Select and copy both of these. Go to your
output jukebox folder where the HTML, XML, JPG, etc. files exist. Paste the
files here, and if done correctly, you should be asked if you want to
overwrite existing files. Confirm this and allow it to copy. Then test it out
on your NMT/TV.
2. To use a skin permanently, move the theme package (ZIP/RAR) to the alaska
folder. It should be alongside the skin.properties, index.xsl, etc. Then
using whichever archive extractor you have (WinZIP, WinRAR), RIGHT-click on
the theme package and choose the option to "Extract Here" (or whatever your
extractor calls it). If done correctly, you should be asked if you want to
overwrite existing files. Confirm this and allow it to copy.
2a. If the theme package included an options-theme.xml and you're using
Companion pages, you must delete all your moviename.html files and
regenerate them.
2b. If the theme package includes a resources/dummy_banner.jpg and you're using
banners, you must delete all your TV Show.banner.jpg files and regenerate
them.
================================================================================
To Do [TD]:
1. MultiEpisodes (ie. S01E01E02)
Known Issues [KI]:
1. When you browse through your genres such as Action or Drama , you will be
browsing through both movies and TV shows. You currently cannot browse for
Action Movies .
2. Though the TV Info page gives you a short list-view, it is admittedly very
slow when there are many episodes.
Limitations [L]:
1. The diffuse graphic will not span the entire screen width and height (720p)
for TV shows and the Companion page.
2. The scrollbar does not act like a true scrollbar.
