With great pleasure, I finally present publicly my latest project, which is none other than my new skin called Glamour Aura FHD. It's a labor of more than a year in the making and testing!
Glamour Aura FHD (GAFHD) is a Full High Definition and High graphic resolution skin for receivers running Enigma2 and the recent OpenPLI/OpenPLI-based images.

Due to its high resolution graphical nature, GAFHD was designed and optimized to run on new generation receivers. The minimal requirement is an STB with a CPU of 750 Mhz (2000 DMIPS).

GAFHD is also a skin you can contribute to. The ipk of the skin is distributed with closed converters/renderers, but all the python code along with the skin code is available on Github.
You can find the source code here: https://github.com/MCelliotG/GlamourAuraFHD-skin
You can pull your requests, make recipes for it and I will push contributions after testing.

GAFHD on par with its graphical user interface is fortified with an extended python system that runs along with OpenPLI's enviroment, providing it with some exclusive new features.

SCREENSHOTS and extended features presentation
1. Main Infobar
The main infobar is divided into two sections. The top section contains all frequency and signal info. GAFHD is the first skin that fully supports real-time info for Multistream services, showing MIS info when such a service is tuned. Up to 12 tuners can also be displayed. The left top part is a weather panel which shows today's weather. Weather info requires the MSN weather plugin to be installed and configured (instructions will follow).

The top infobar will also display full stream URL and stream type when a service is stream.

The lower section is the main infobar which contains along with the program info, an extended service info icons panel, including icons for audio/video codecs, a full exact framerate display, and a short weather panel which shows the current weather condition. GAFHD can also display a live bitrate if the bitrate plugin is installed and configured (this will be explained below as well).

The lowest part of the main infobar is the extended encryption info. GAFHD uses a new detection feature which shows all available caids and encryption system names of a service.

NOTE: The skin works best with 400X240 picon size.

2. Second infobar

The second infobar brings an amplitude of extra information for both the service and the system layout. The weather panel shows additional info on tomorrows weather.

The left panel is the layout info showing real time CPU work, temperature, speed and load and internal HDD temperature. The upper layers show the pids of the service in decimal format and also real time info on connected storage devices, memory and swap.The middle part displays now and next program extended description.

3. Channel selection screens
Channel selection along with the service list on the right displays the extended program description on the left, the five following events and also a new transponder info panel which also shows the stream type and stream url on a stream service and transponder info for the rest.

6. Language selection
GAFHD is a truly multilingual skin. It utilizes the new Aura new font I created based on Roboto and Noto fonts the skin is able to show Greek, Cyrillic, Arabic and Georgian among others. More alphabets can be added by request.

INSTRUCTIONS:
1)
Download the ipk of the file. Send the file to /tmp your receiver using an FTP program. Then you can install it manually via telnet or via the software manager.
Manually:
Code:
opkg install /tmp/enigma2-plugin-skins-glamouraurafhd_RC.3_all.ipk
2) FOR BITRATE INFO
The bitrate plugin is essential for bitrate to work. You can download it from the plugins menu. For correct display in the skin it needs to be configured as follows:
Code:
mode: as infobar,

style skin: compact,

background window: transparent-black,

X screen position: 1645,

Y screen position: 0837,

Z screen position: 14.
The correct settings are also shown in the screencap below:

3) FOR WEATHER INFO
The weather info requires the msn weather plugin to be installed. I have included the ipk as well. After installation you can configure your location via its settings menu.
Download MSN weather plugin from here: MEGA

NOTE: For IPTV streams serviceapp is highly recommended with this skin.
IMPORTANT NOTE:
As stated above, GAFHD is designed to work well ONLY for receivers with a CPU higher than 750Mhz. This is an obligatory limitation due to the high resolution graphical nature of the skin which also makes the package large in size. For receivers with slower CPUs use at your own risk! Also, GAFHD for the moment will not work on any other images (such as OE-A) than OpenPLI and OpenPLI-based images (like SatDreamGr, etc).

DOWNLOAD THE GAFHD SKIN IPK HERE:
MEGA

I want to personally thank my beta testers for their feedback. I encourage developers to contribute to the skin's further development in github.
I really hope you enjoy my work.

Hi Cardiff. It has not been modded for OpenATV yet, it's in my future plans. Only OpenPLI for the moment!
I clearly state it as well above, look:
Also, GAFHD for the moment will not work on any other images (such as OE-A) than OpenPLI and OpenPLI-based images (like SatDreamGr, etc).

Congratulations on your success and appreciate your efforts :-clapBecause I know you are also interested in the Dreambox reception,I hope that in your skin we can find especially Blindscan and other informations related to the reception regardless of the installed image.
All developers invest their intelligence more the media side of the receiver and less for the reception.Now that the last tuners that Dreambox comes up with are somewhat more efficient, an increased attention in this direction would satisfy even the enthusiasts.By the way of tuner Silab,here DM920 can lock the signal with low symbol rates,which before,to my knowledge,could not.
I know the performance of a tuner depends first of all on the producer's driver but I think developers can also contribute to this.
Here are a few examples of low symbol rate locked.Perhaps it encourages developers to include in their images many reception features.
Regards :Y

After a long time finally I could spend some time installing the latest GAFHD skin.

I like it very much but I've found two problems so far on my Octagon SF4008 running the latest SDG 6:
1. Bitrate on Radio Mode always showing N/A
2. After switching to TV Mode green screen and restart of E²

Could you fix it ?

The radio green screen is an Enigma2 issue.
If you look at the crashlog, you will see that it contains no reference to my skin or any skin. Just try it with another one and you will see the problem persists.
Radio bitrate is for now inactive as the bitrate plugin I use does not currently support standalone values. If a fix for that is ever applied it will work without any change.

It would help a great deal if you could post the crash log that was generated during the green screen. Thanks.

Hello again.

Here is the crash log.
But how can it be an E² issue if it is working before the install of the GAFHD skin ?
At least this was the case after a fresh install of SDG 6.

I think Open ATV broke your SNR reading, shows 100% for every channel, and unable to set it back to dB..on the SF8008 Glamour Aura FHD skin - first public release candidate (RC3)_1061772

I am not using Open ATV but SatDreamgr (SDG in short) and it is not about Audio bitrate in TV stations but in Radio stations.

@deepbluesky
../../git/lib/gui/ewidget.cpp:337 ASSERTION t FAILED!
because this is an Enigma2 issue, not a skin issue.
I'm aware of this green screen, it's not new. And it happens with every skin. One workaround is to set hide channel list in radio mode to on. You will miss my fabulous radio screen though. The problem is reproduced when you exit the radio screen to the TV channels (and zap to a new TV channel).

@scopus
The new drivers broke SNR in db in DVB-S/S2 in all SF8008, not working on any skin too. It has been reported, but they don't want to accept the issue. Instead they fixed DVB-T/C SNRdb.

Update: I found the problem (not skin related, but I will make a workaround). So expect an update after this weekend (currently I have a very busy week).
