Nothing wrong with experimenting dniestre. It's your box and you can do what you like. But what is the point of a mini me infobar that doesn't actually show any info. Seems a bit pointless to me, not knowing start and finished times and not having a mini summary. Maybe I am just used to normal infobars.
In my country we have a provider with an infobar skin like that in the official box - it was like a challenge to me. By the way i like small, clean and simple infobars.
I quite like that, would probably look nicer if you had stream information next to the timeline bar though.
