Several months ago Game Informer had an article on how to make your own themes for the razors. It envolved using windows media center and one of its updates> Can anyone help me with this. thanks

I got this information from the March 07 edition of OXM.
I quote,

"How to create your own Dashboard Theme

"1. The first thing you'll need is a suitable picture.The system will resize any image you give it, but your best bet is to avoid distortion and start with a 1172 x 720 JPEG. If you can view it on the 360, you can make it your blade background, whether it's on a digital camera, CD-R, portable USB drive, or your PC (accessed through a file-sharing connection).

"2.Go to the Media Blade, select "Pictures", and press the A button. Select the device where your chosen photo is located and navigate the folders until you find where you put it.

"3. Highlight the picture you want from the available selections, and then press the X buttonto "apply as background," as indicated in the lower left of the screen. Select "Yes, use this picture" when asked if you really want to do this, and press the A button. Ding! Your selected picture is immediately applied.

"4. Now for the guide background, the interface that slides open whenever you hit the guide button. Press the guide button on your controller, select "Personal Settings," and choose "Themes"

"5. Notcice that the name of the picture you selected for your bladebackground is now listed as a theme name. Keep in mind that selecting it in the future will reset the guide background and dashboard settings you're about to change back to thier defaults. Select "Customize," then "Guide Background."

"6. From here you can select any Texture from any themein your collection, including those downloaded as part of purchased packs. If you want a College Hoops 2K7 hardwood floor to go with photos of your new house, feel free. If your not into textures, create your own custom color using red/green/blue color sliders, which will then be made part of a simple gradient.

"7. Press the B button to back out to the customization menu. Select "Dashboard Trim" and press the A button. You've got a whopping THREE selections to choose from - Default, Carbon, or Glass - and you'll have to close the guide pop-up window to really see the diffrence each makes.

"8. If you've got a Live Vision Camera you'll see an additional option in the Custimize menu: "Camera Effect". (If you don't, skip to the next step.) You'll see three options, each of which overlays a live feed from your camera onto the blade background. The results can vary wildly, but they're fun to play with. Pick one that strikes your fancy, or turn it off completely.

"9. (Finnaly!) Voila! customization complete. With any luck, one day Microsoft will give us more dashboard trims to play with, or at least grant us the ability to specify diffrent backgrounds for each blade. Untill then, at least your not stuck with the same-old same-old.

--Cameron Lewis"

There you go , straight from OXM itself. Boy, you better be thankful for me typing all this. Took me almost 20 mins! Enjoy. And I did all that in vein becuse someone posted a link while I was typing. Well for anyone else that has the same question here you go.

Thought I'd post this these are good pictures to use because they are high res, make open the picture before streaming it to your dashboard for optimal quality
