As others have said option 2 is cleaner and more consistent. I definitely like it better and I don't mind not having access to the top shelf, I rarely use it for practical purposes. Philosophically I prefer Media to be at the same level as any other app, as Netflix or Youtube. Option 1 looks like those weird jailbreak hacks that temper with Apple's layout.

Agreed. However the iPad itself has 4 icons across, even though the dock allows for 6. Visually, Option 1 would be similar to the iPad.

I would opt for option 3. Drop the Settings tile down a level (if possible). Boost Media as in option 1. Five icons in a pretty row.

i would really want to see option 1

 

it looks pretty nice Smile please make option 1, option 2 isn't feeling so native i think and option 1 is for me really much better than option 2.. even if we have to wait a little bit longer Smile

I definitely prefer this to option 1 if 2 is not possible at all.

Option 1 looks far more slick. Especially with the top toolbar/menu available in the option1b image.

It would be great if you could make the media Top Shelf the default instead of the iTunes Store.

I am liking option 2 myself.but as long as I can access my NAS who cares what it looks like.

I am pretty sure if you selected one and didn't post this no one would of minded which option you guys picked

Although I do want access to turn menus off. In NZ I don't really care for MLB

How easy is it to jail break?

Maybe there is à posibility, to make the option, to switch off/on menu options. In some countries wont work options or you don't want to use them. I would be nice, to remove them, by à menu option.

Hey folks, we've made some great strides with the new 5.0 (iOS 5.1) software and wanted to share a bit of of our progress with you. Additionally, we're looking at a few options for integrating aTV Flash (black) into the new menu layout, and would love to have your feedback.

Take a look at the two options below, and feel free to sound off in the comments.

Option 1 - add extra icon to top row

Screenshots

http://fireco.re/F1hT
http://fireco.re/F1SS

Pros

  • Access to recently played items in Top Shelf
  • Media is always visible in menu
  • Quicker navigation
  • Seamless integration with the new UI

Cons

  • Deviates slightly from native layout by adding an extra icon to top row
  • Requires a bit more time to integrate

Option 2 - add icon to lower section

Screenshots

http://fireco.re/F0rb
http://fireco.re/F0Wj
http://fireco.re/F0pV

Pros 

  • Maintains native layout with 5 icons per row
  • Requires less time to integrate

Cons

  • Media is buried below other icons
  • No Top Shelf access
  • Inconvenient navigation

(Note: The choice of option #1 applies to the Media menu only - all other items (Couch Surfer, Last.fm, Weather, etc...) will be displayed as described under option #2)

Thanks! :)

 

Option 1 for me!

Options 1+2. Media player on the top list with recent access and 5 icons per row. In another words, push Settings down. It's not like a change my settings everyday and need it in the top row.

Having a row with 6 icons is hideous.

Ha! with this kind of response how can you not choose option 1? I think we're all patient enough to benefit from the convenience of the top left access to our media.

In german localization it even fits perfectly, filling the fifth icon place, since we don't get TV shows from the iTunes Store. Wink

That's an excellent point.

Additionally, even in the US where we have all five menus, it's possible to hide two of them (TV Shows and Music) using the normal AppleTV Parental Controls.

Infuse 6 for iOS and Apple TV is now available!

Please leave space for xbmc icon , allow hide/unhide native icons as ''tv shows'' ''music'' is not needed when ''media''  is so good.

I vote for Option 1

2008-atv1
2011-atv2
2012-atv3 (getting dusty waiting for a miracle)

Option 1 - I'd rather keep the top shelf stuff than have a screen full of icons, is there any way to turn off things like the WSJ and baseball icons?
