Very cool, thanks Alpolio!

By the way, I'm trying to track down some good-quality images of the Hair Nation and Classic Vinyl logos. I've stalled on those wallpapers for the moment, only because I haven't been able to get good pics of the station logos anywhere.

Someone mentioned to me that the old downloadable Sirius program guides were zoomable, so I could potentially grab a logo from that. Anyone here have an old PDF that's probably a year or two old? I have the new guide, but the images are just too small. Maybe Sirius' designers are very protective of their creative properties.

Hey, thanks. And I didn't even think of using Sirius' PDF's as a source! The current channel guide works great. I was using the low res gifs and touching them up. That's quite a tedious task.

I went ahead and updated my Hair Nation wallpaper with a high-res logo.

Awesome - that looks nice! The logo is much crisper.

I plan to make my other wallpapers available in lower resolutions, such as 1024 x 768, and 1280 x 1024. I don't know what I was thinking designing them at 1600 x 1200, but that's my res at home and work, so I've sorta been used to that for a while!

More to come, really!

Edit - the current channel guide is zoomable - I must be crazy. Looks like I have what I need.

Default Classic Vinyl Wallpaper

Ok, this is just a quickie, but came out pretty well. Here is Classic Vinyl (resolution is now 1024 x 768, but I can adjust the size if requested):

Here's another one that I put together with the high res logos from the channel guide. I've been wanting to do one like this for a while now, but those gif's just didn't cut the mustard.

Hair Nation red on black.

And here's the same background with a Hard Attack logo.

Cool! That's a really clever use of lighting effects.

Those look great! I like the background you're using. Don't those high res logos look awesome?!

Love the Hard Attack wallpaper! I'll be using that one, keep up the great work you guys!

By chance maybe down the road, can someone do some kind of wallpaper for Octane?

I'm actually in the process of designing a wallpaper for every music station on Sirius. I'm also designing a handful of talk channels, such as Sirius OutQ, Howard Stern, Maxim, and Stars. I'll be uploading all weekend, so keep checking back to see the new ones!

The first five wallpapers have been uploaded for Channels 1-4 and 14 (I had already made the Classic Vinyl one):

01 Sirius Hits 1

02 Starlite

03 Sirius Love

04 Movin' Easy

14 Classic Vinyl

I'll be uploading them five at a time, as I finish them. I will be going in chronological order, so you talk channel fans will have to wait a few more days, eh. It shouldn't be long too long before all the stations are up.

Oh, make sure to keep checking the very first post in this thread - that is where all the wallpaper links are at.

Enjoy

In the first post.

Tenohtwo, if you could also post new ones in a new post to this thread as well as the first post that would be good.
