i've been saving up some comments. i'm not sure if there is already something like theme settings, but I would like to see the following as options:
- ken burns effect should be used a little more subtle (less movement)
- scrolling texts should be optional (for me it is too busy)

some considerations:
- remind people that when they use your config file, they need to check if the libraries are set correct
- can you include the fonts in the .mopp file?
- the grid on the details movie view (two columns text + images) stays while the posters move, this may be a design decision but I would make the grid move with the posters
- if a datafeed does not exist, you will still see " / / /" in the scrolling text.

remark:
- after some switching back and forth between themes, I found out that because of the alternative screens, it is easier to keep two configuration files and update the plugins and menu structure in both files, rather than just keeping one configuration file and changing the theme choice in WPF.
The disadvantage here is that you want to add a plugin or module, you need to update both configuration files.
Using only one configuration file and simply changing themes buy changing the setting for theme in the WPFUI plugin requires that all themes have common " alternative" screen names. For example, you use "home" instead of "group" for the home screen. This should be communicated or WIKI-nized .
In the long run, if all themes use common alternative screen names, changing a theme will become easier.

And once again: great work!

Those videos look stunning CRN. Simply stunning. They clearly show MeediOS satisfying my needs for custom libraries, custom filters, and multiple display views dependant on the library/library section that I've gotten so used to with meedio, as well as that wow kinetic eye candy factor for the interface.

I love the TV shows setup. I love the way you can have recently added. I like the multiple views.

The movies section with the posters flipping when you move to the next entry is something I've never seen before and it looks great. Not sure rotating the movie is going to get much use, but damn cool none the less.

And you gotta love that rotating cube effect in the music library.

I also like the ken burns on the fanart, that's a great idea. I'll agree with maarten77 that it if possible perhaps make it a more subtle effect, but assuming it doesn't overly tax the interface/CPU, don't get rid of it!

Can't wait to try this out, nicely done CRN. 8)

How fast is this now in HD resolutions? Currently using Meedio and Chrome on a 1080P TV and with the fan-art in Chrome navigation is very slow...

Speed is no problem with Meedios but its not usable as a live HTPC front-end yet. Too much still in development.

IMO the tearing needs to eliminated though (too fast at drawing frames?!). Needs vsync.

on my system resolution has very little impact (if any) and it's running as fast using 720 , 1366 and 1080

I don't get any tearring but have you tried to set vsync to ON for meediOS in graphics control panel ?

e.g.
    nVidia

for each spinner mode there is 'classic' mode with frames so if you don't want to use spinners you don't have to use spinners ;)

That's an idea. I do not want global vsync, but just for Meedios may be OK.

IIRC vsync does deal with tearing but leaves the thread idle for lost of time (buffer locking). Triple buffering would be better because then one buffer is always unlocked. Now, is that accessible in WPF??

I've never noticed any tearing in WPF under Vista/Win7 at all. On XP it's always there though.

For those using windows XP, I believe SP3 is required. That may have some effect on the tearing.
