I tried looking into it a bit, and these are the genres I found according to thetvdb.. I'm searching for inspiration to see if you can maybe come up with some Posters.. (Though I'm very appealed by the thought of doing Vivid TV Posters..)
I actually got so into the idea that I started researching exactly how many genres one would need to do for Music as well.. (much thanks to your work with custom Library icons, which also is the only reason I'm actually going from File view to Library view atm)
According to allmusic it doesn't seem like as many as I originally thought..
Anyway, here's the TV genres, does this look adequate?
Action and Adventure
Home and Garden

Yes, that looks very good. I'd be able to do a set like the ones I did for movies if you made me some kind of template again.

Awesome work man, honestly... This is something I've always wanted on XBMC, specially in the Music department, are you considering doing the same for the Music section?
Maybe the same style won't actually work, I don't know where you get all those silhouette images (maybe you make them?) but if you need ideas to make something different for music, maybe you could take a look at iTunes? This was the first app where I saw covers (for music of course) for each one of the genres in the iTunes library, it looked awesome.
I know that right now you're probably busy with the TV section, but after that, will you consider music?

I am making TV Genre Posters as we speak, albeit in the style of The Silhouettes Vivid.. But I can think about it and see if I can come up with some sort of template for your idea..

Was that an answer to me or the previous posters? If it was for me, that was quick lol...

--> Nazgulled, I am actually thinking about making Music Genre ones (even though I said earlier that I would not) as well, I would need some reference as to which genres should be made before I decide.. allmusic for instance only lists 20 genres, where as when I let XBMC scrape my album collection I got 66 different genres, and I'm guessing other might have even more genres..
If I do decide to do Music genres I might actually try to do them in The Silhouettes -style, though square shaped obviously..

Sorry, the first one was for digitalhigh.. I'm not that quick..
- Nazgulled - 2009-04-08 19:37
Yeah, which genres to make can be a problem, I'm not sure I'm the best person to help on that field...
But maybe you can do the basic ones, the more common genres and general genres and then try to do more as people request them, if no one needs anything new, don't do anymore, saves you time
But of course, only do genres, not sub genres, like Metal could be dark metal, death metal, nu metal, trash metal, etc... only one suffice. (probably most people is not fan of metal music but it's what I like most and couldn't think of a better example )
Here's the genres (and associated images) that iTunes 8 has by default:
Some of them I don't think how they classify as "music genre", but... And it doesn't have a metal one, bah, iTunes sucks lol. There's also a group on flickr where people make and post more "covers" for other genres.

It feels like I should be starting yet another thread, see if there's others who would want this as well, and maybe which genres to make first.. Nonetheless I am going to focus on the TV Genres today..

Didn't notice the thread title, yeah, maybe it's better... I just edited my previous post if you haven't seen it.
