I'd really like to do this. I opened home.xml but I see a lot of buttons and ID numbers, which one should I edit to let Video open Videofiles?

I'm having a small problem with the thumbnails being displayed in the "Latest Movies" and "Latest Episodes" boxes on the home page (they don't display at all).
This was all working for me, however I've just updated both the XBMC build and the skin. I also took the opportunity to use a media manager to get all the nfo's,covers, and fanarts since I needed to rebuild the db (which was neccessary because the db format has changed and the home menu lagged). Previously I just scraped directly from the internet during the db scan.
I switched to a media manager because I share the media amongst different xboxes and did'nt want to have to spend ages scraping the data for each xbox.
So I wiped my db, and thumbnails from the userdata folder.
After rescanning my movies with their nfos,covers,etc... The covers do not appear in the "Latest Movies" Box (the text does).
I put a couple of movies into a folder without their nfo's,covers, and then did a scan and they appeared correctly in the "Latest Movies" box.
So it seems that the "Latest Movies" cover only displays if you have thumbnails in usedata and does'nt display if you prescrape them.
When I do a movie scan it obviously doesnt put a thumbnail into the usedat folder if the cover already exists with the movie (this might be just the way xbmc works).
So is there any workaround for this apart from scraping directly from the internet (or maybe I'll just download the nfo and fanart with my media manager, and let the xbox download the cover itself during a scan - a kind of compromise).
Apart from that, thanks for a great skin...
Also to note that this is on an xbox not a PC.

Thanks for that info, I did try the latest nightly build, but when I had issues - I switched to the latest t3ch build (2009-09-27). I'm sure that I also tried my old (previously) working build. I will double check again with that build.

Hey @Jezz could you add Fanart support to MyVideoNav.xml view id 50? I want this because on MyMusicNav.xml have that fanart support and when i enter music plugin, plugin fanart shown on plugin ROOT. But on video plugin fanart not shown on plugin Root menu.

Ok ignore what I said... After much fiddling and futzing!! I solved my problem.
It was actually my sources.xml (in userdata).
The shares were setup from the days when you had to put the the username and password into the it share itself (manually).
I only found this out by creating a new share (which did'nt have the username and password). When it worked - I checked the difference between the old and new shares.
The old share was
<path pathversion="1">smb://username:password@SERVER/Network Movies/</path>
and the new share is
<path pathversion="1">smb://SERVER/Network Movies/</path>
