Thanks to StuartM, most of the excessive refresh issues have been
resolved. It's much faster now (and more usable)

I use mythaeon now as my main theme... Few comments:
- Recording screen: While very pretty, it makes searching for a recent
recording quite difficult. Having to scroll right to get to an earlier
recording, where the only feedback is the screenshot (which often
doesn't correspond to the recording content) and you get to know what
it is only once highlighted.
Would it be possible to have an alternative view in list, so at a
glance you can see 10-12 recording titles at once and immediately see
which one to select? That would make the wife happy, she finds the
theme annoying as it is.

-Video screen: The fullscreen background artwork is almost completely
covered... Would need some transparency there otherwise I think it's a
bit of a waste. My video libraries is organised by folders (one for
each type: action, Sci-Fi, TV etc...)
When selecting a folder, you can barely see the artwork; (looks like
this: http://i43.tinypic.com/30xakqp.png)

-Menu: The text for the menu is severely shorten here... you see 5
characters at a max, after that it scrolls...

That's all for now
