Can anyone point me to a skin with a large font?

Before I re-create the wheel by trying to edit a skin I just thought I'd ask if anyone has posted one I can use. I'm using MM as part of my Media Center and need larger fonts to display clearly on my TV.

I am fairly certain there isn't one.

Have a look in the Artwork forum as there a few posts about making skins with large fonts.

as many times as this has been asked for i believe it is on the needed list for the version 3 of media monkey when they add the new skinning system.

so if you can hold out they might have a large normal small font choice or some thing to that effect in the monkeys option list?

Yeah, and I'm not getting any younger so I might need a BIG font soon. I need glasses already!

Revisiting this. I'm using an HP Stream 7 to run MM in my car. I'd love to find a skin with big fonts that works well on this very small screen.
Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Font size can be changed from the MM options. See Options > Skins

none of the answers here make a huge difference. It seems to me that this could be a niche opportunity for MM. MS has ended Media Center Edition, and currently there is no really good "ten foot view" (see readable options on the TV for media controls) media player for media PCs. It seems that with a skin, one could create a MM version for just such a situation. Controlling MM from across the room using your TV to play videos. I'll bet it would be popular!

I agree. Even for normal PC use I would like a skin with a big font because my eyesight is not what it once was.
Can't afford a signature.
