Ah good call, i forgot fanart could be season specific.

I just updated to the latest release on git. The poster I use at the moment are basically just cut off at the top and bottom. So maybe the effort should be to create poster images which have the important information in the center instead of creating fanart with the name of the series in it. Fanart isn't displayed in the lower band anyway but posters are and they can be changed from within XBMC.

Thanks for all the ones you have made guys, but on my screen they are slightly cut off at the left and right sides, noticable on the house one as it is cutting off the box around the H. Just cos i am using a 22" 16:10 screen rather than a 16:9 tv?

I'm getting the same problem with a 24" 16:10 monitor.

That issue is known. All the images are cut off on a 16:10 monitor (which most new computer screens use) but it doesn't seem like it's easy to fix.

Here is my first contributions (added to TheTVDb)
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (2)
CSI: Miami (2)
CSI: Miami (3)
CSI: New York
I have not added the following to thetvdb since I don't believe that they are good enough as fanart, but works great for Multiplex
(If someone thinks that they against all odds do fit the requirements for thetvdb, feel free to upload them)
America's Next Top Model
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation
Without a Trace
Lost Not done by me, just a tip!

If you use 16:10 images for the banners it displays fine, but I can imagine having to figure out a way to 80 or 120 pixels to a load of 16:9 images is gonna be a real pain.

isn't there one word somewhere in the code that you can change to make the image stretch rather than crop? i remember someone talking about doing it with showcase. i'd be fine with a little bit of stretching. it's hardly noticeable but it's quite clear when part of your text is missing.
- Montellese - 2009-04-27 13:23
I recall something like that as well. I'll do a little search in this board and if I find something, I'll let you know.
OK this is what I had in mind: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=48777&highlight=crop
I can't try it now coz I'm at work but I will do as soon as I'm home.

Also, since the group of us were throwing around, hey let's post our icons in the tvdb, see this topic:
But in a nutshell, they're going to add a flag that allows users when they upload to flag fanart as with a logo or without, so that in the future xbmc will be able to pull these as thumbs.
