Will do Gamester Music FanArt seemed inevitable, but now I have to convince travis to host band logos on his site. No sense in adding them to the scraper if they aren't on the site.
So, what do you think?

Of course, if there was a site to get them from it would give much more motivation for anyone to add support for it in XBMC.

I would have no problem implementing band logos. Wouldn't be terribly hard but my question to you is, is there an existing source for these? Or are they primarily community made like the movie backdrops are?

I would assume that there is probably NOT an existing source for them. However, I think that band logos would be easier to come by than good high quality backgrounds. Every band has a logo, even if it is just the bands name in a special font. The fact that they would not need to be of such high resolution would make them much easier to come by. You would need to come up with some sort of standards though as I discussed earlier. Like dimensions and that the logo MUST fill at least one aspect (either vertical or horizontal). They should be .png's so that the rest of the space can be transparent. They should only be EXISTING logos. No "I think this would be a cool logo for band X." That is all I have for now but there are probably other things to consider. Cheers.

Is there a way to download multiple fan arts for 1 tv series and display them randomly?

No. Currently only one displayed fanart is supported.

I put a feature request in trac for this.

Same here - get the IMDB number and put it on the end of this link.
