Not really, no.

The menus and OSD are fully themeable. The program guide colors (category
background colors, overall background, text/etc) are fully customizeable, but
the feel can't change, aside from having a bar at the bottom showing the
current program title in a larger font or not. The rest of the UI can be
modified as much as Qt's theming system allows you, which is quite a bit with
respect to colors and widget styles, but the overall widget placement can't
changed without modifying the source.
