The Black Glass Nova HD skin is designed to be easy to use and has a simple and clear look. It should be controlled primarily with a remote or a keyboard. BasicHome screen should be used as default home page. The resolution is 1920x1080. Fanart Handler plugin recommended. The skin is based on Black Glass.
I think i've started two years ago with my project MediaPortal.
Many skins went over my screen. Black Glass was my favorite and then there was Black Glass Nova. I fell in love with this skin.
The alternative things like horizontal volume etc. are great.
I think i never had any problem with this skin in any version.
