Yes...pastel colors are a refreshing change. It seems to work well with
my trunk version, only on ' Watch Recordings' the icons overlap the lines
of description if the text goes over 3 lines.

Personal preference is to see the mpg file size displayed on the 'Watch
Recordings' screen and for 'Upcoming/Scheduled' screen to show the
my displayname instead of the cardid ( i have 5 tuner cards).

Thanks for your work!
