Diamond - MB Classic Theme


Recommended Posts

The classic enhanced theme from MB 2




The original enhanced theme for Media Browser.


This plugin must be installed from the MBClassic Configurator


Available options in the configuration menu

The configuration menu can be accessed from within Media Browser using the wrench (or spanner) icon.


Diamond Options Tab

Media Details in Mini Mode

Start the details page for media items in mini-mode. This mode sacrifices media details for more fan art useful for more advanced users with a full library of backdrops.


Display End Time

Calculate and display end time of current media item. When enabled it takes the runtime of a selected media item and calculates the expected time the media would finish if you were to play that media now.


Display Glass Overlay

Display Diamond Glass overlay on poster images. You can turn off glass frames, this is particularly useful if you have specially tailored posters and do not have the need for glass overlays or simply you don’t like the look.


Display Infobox in Coverflow Views

Display an information box for media in Coverflow view.


Display Infobox in Thumbstrip Views

Display an information box for media in Thumbstrip view.


Display Infobox in Poster Views

Extender Layout Enhancements

Use custom layout adjustments for use with extenders.


Useful Options:


Enhanced Home Screen Customization

By default the Enhanced Home Screen (EHS) for the Diamond Theme will display a view of ‘recent items’ that have been added to the selected media collection.


This view however can be customized by the user. There are three choices for the information displayed here:

  • Recently Added (default)
  • Recently Watched
  • Recently Added Unwatched

To change the information displayed you need to navigate until the ‘Recently Added’ header is highlighted. Then you can cycle through the view options by pressing the Return/Enter key on the keyboard or by pressing the “OK” button on a remote.

This will toggle through the available views.
