This doesn't seem to be well known so I thought I'd highlight it over here. I see a lot of great images and backdrops on peoples main screens but often with a horrible blue or grey area around the icon that is being selected (maybe some like it like that but I'm guessing you just didn't know that you could change it easily), hard to explain in words so here is what I mean.
It is possible to change this so that Media Browser does not add the blue or grey colour to the icon being selected and keeps the original transparency. Here is how...
First start MB in the color scheme you want to start with (blue or black) and exit. Then if you look in c:\programdata\mediabrowser you will now find a file called "Styles_DoNotEdit.mcml" if you copy this to a file called "CustomStyles.mcml" you can then tweak the colors yourself.
The color you want to play with is PosterZoomBackground, setting it to "Transparent" will, well, make it transparent. other colors are specified as "alpha, red, green, blue"
(Note if you do this and things don't load or your get errors the first thing to try is removing the CustomStyles.mcml file, if that works then check the formatting and also check that you have all the elements.
I also had a discussion with the Dev's about it here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=552&p=2991&hilit=olywa+paul+transparent#p2991
I saw a post in general discussions about this with someone asking if it was possible so thought I'd meniton it here as some of you may not know.
Hope it helps,
If you try this and it makes you happy let us know!!! :D
