3 questions:

Is it possible to have a customized "Gallery" with our own images for each artist, like a subfolder in artist pictures folder for each artist with several pictures inside that would rotate in a customized theater mode?

Can the "AlbumTracks"  element have a scroll bar?

Is it possible to show the rating stars for each song in the "AlbumTracks" element? Currently I have it set to show rating as a child, but it shows it as a number.

Thanks.

I also give thanks for the improvement in the "AlbumTracks" element to click and play the songs :)

In  2.1.4770 Beta, the screensaver doesn't "kick in" even when " <screenSaver>
  <settings idlePeriod="20" />.  If activated in file - view menu, it works fine until exited.
Have I missed some new settings?

I'm using the xbox music style - gallery, i don't know if this settings are global or not but some times it shows some random images that doesn't have nothing to do with the band it's playing, who can the gallery only get images from last.fm?

Steven,
I think it would be really great if the overlay feature implemented in compact player was extended to Theatermode.
They are not lazy... just more efficient.

anyone wanting to use the "Artist Pictures (Gallery from flickr)" view, this fixes a bug in the plugin:

unzip and overwrite the existing "mb_TheaterModePlugin.dll" file in the plugins folder

Would it be possible to have the mouse pointer auto-hide after 1 second if you don't move it when in full screen view?

Is there are way to display the tracks in a currently playing playlist in a panel in Theater Mode?  Right now all I'm able to to show is a list of songs in the album of a song currently playing from that particular playlist.

Example:
A Celine Dion song is playing.  The right-hand column lists the songs in the album in which the currently playing song is from.  In the bottom right corner, you can see what song in the playlist will play next.  Instead of having a list of songs in the current album (most of which are not in the playlist), I'd like to have a scrollable list of the songs in the playlist ... kind of like an integrated Now Playing Assistant.

For the new theater mode elements, consult the following thread:

Thanks so much!  I figured out how to incorporate the MouseOver text color change.  Is there a way to set the currently playing song (and the speaker icon) to a different color from all of the other songs in the playlist or album tracklist in Theater Mode?

I requested that too, but not implemented yet.

3. Would it be possible to color the current playing track differently (Album Tracks type too)?

Add a support for that to remind Steven of this wish.

Now that I'm on 2.2.5020 (latest version), I've noticed that lyrics are no longer being pulled in when I'm in the Theater view. If I use the default view, the lyrics panel is there on the right, but it just says "Searching" at the top and nothing ever displays.

Could it just be that the site/service where the lyrics are pulled in from is down?

EDIT - Never mind, it's just started working! :D

Is there a way to clear the cache for the artist pictures that are displayed in theater mode?  There are newer, higher-rated photos up on fanart.tv but these aren't being displayed for artists who already have pictures associated with them in theater mode.  The "reset album artwork cache" has no affect on the artist photos.
