About the only change I would do would be in the "Watch Recordings"  
screen. Make the selection bar move with the focus, either the left  
"All Programs" area while that is the focus, then move to the right  
for the actual show listings. The contrast of the focus on the text is  
very hard to pick up on the set.

Best theme I've run across yet!
