problem with htbackdrops.com is that it requires cookies and js execution since the returned search url's are relative to a 'search' album. if htbackdrops could provide real url's in its search (i.e. those with album=2) it would work just fine. without, it unfortunately requires a full browser to be usable

Any chance the original 1080p images are kept on the site anywere? The "Download original file" link still takes me to 720p images. :-(

So I've redone the site using a more scraper-friendly script.
Spiff thinks this will work OK so I moved all the images out of the old one and into this one.
I'm sorry to say all image uploader credit was not transferred (not enough time to go through each image one by one) so if any of you wish to have your images credited to you please register again and let me know which ones are yours and I will assign them to your account.
Right now it looks like all images were uploaded by me when this is certainly not the case.
I know there were several big-time contributors and I apologize for this but hopefully it is worth it to allow XBMC to scrape the site successfully.
Oh, and this script has been set up to NOT do any downsizing of 1080p images
If you spot any bugs please let me know.

AWESOME. Long overdue.
As far as credit for the uploads I did...I've got somewhere in the neighbourhood of 170-180 uploads. Want me to just PM you with a list of the filenames in the archive? Regardless...I'm not too concerned. Just happy to have them accessible to as many ppl as possible.

Looks like I'll be able to find sources for about 75% of these...I've downloaded a few HQ images already, but I can't get to photoshop till I get home. So, I'll make them for you for the sake of getting this baby off the ground.
Now...what do I have to do for you to get proper support for tv studios?

wait patiently and not pm me with nagging is a good start ;P
i guess you're about to scratch my itch so i will atleast attach a diff to the trac shortly. but it won't hit svn before 9.04 i'm afraid

Wasn't intended to be nagging...more of a "Hey, if you get a chance, could you check this out?" sorta message.
Edit: Allright...uploaded. The pics just need to be approved, then they should be visible.

Thanks for the site setup and scraper support mods.
Support for this is currently in MIP's test builds and will be bundled up at the end of the week into the new install version.
