are your banners saved as folder.jpg or banner.jpg?
If folder.jpg, it should be automatically, but to auto select go into settings on the iPad and set the config for commander to banners.
If banner.jpg, then your S.O.L. (S**t Outta Luck) and J.W.F (Jolly Well F****d).

thanks for the help but you are not right as i have fixed the problem.
i have in my folder
the folder.jpg can be used in xbmc if you pick it for poster view but its normaly used for making your windows desktop folders look like it has covers.
Poster.jpg is used for poster view in xbmc and for info view when you press i
banner.jpg is used for the banners in xbmc
now there is an option in xbmc to let you use posters instead of banners in xbmc as some people have there banners named as posters and this makes it easier to use instead of trying to rename posters to banners when you add tv shows to your library.
the problem is that i did not use the banners.jpg when i picked the tv shows picture when i created my library, I used posters.jpg picture instead which is a dvd size cover and not a banner size cover which is fine if your not going to use banners which i did for a few weeks but then decided i wanted to use banners view.
The problem with that is when you use a program such as commander it will use the poster.jpg for its banners which xbmc has cached in its own folder as it never uses the picture from the main folder you picked it from as it always creates a cache of them pictures so this is no good as it will stretch the picture and will not fit the banners view in commander but for posters view it will work great.
So when you hit i for info button xbmc uses the poster.jpg for the larger info screen from your tv shows folder as if you had posters instead of banners selected it would just use the posters.jpg or folder.jpg for the info screen so one picture would do both. If you do not have it selected it would just show a blank with no picture in the info screen as you would need a poster.jpg in the folder to use it.
you have to select a banner.jpg when selecting the tv show cover art and deselect use posters instead of banners as you want to use banners.jpg, but if you dont have banners.jpg but have banner pictures named as posters.jpg you need to select use posters instead of banners so that you dont ahve to rename all your posters to banners.
the problem is that there is a bug in xbmc commander as when you clear the cache it works on movies but not on tv show banners which i hope will get fixed so if like me you lloaded up commander when u used poster view it will use them instead for banner view and will not work and your buggerd.
but theres hope the only way to get it to work right is to uninstall xbmc commander from the iphone or ipad and reinstall it but making sure you have corrected your tv show library first before loading xbmc commander and once you do that all the banners load up right which i have done.
its all working now so i thought i would post this just in case others need help.
just a recap
for banners view have
poster.jpg same pic as folder
folder.jpg same pic as poster
turn off use posters instead of banners
pick the banner.jpg for banners view
load a fresh install of xbmc commander and select force banners in options and then select the tv show button and it show get the banners.
for tv show poster view have
poster.jpg same pic as folder
folder.jpg same pic as poster
pick the poster.jpg for poster view
load a fresh install of xbmc commander and select force posters in options and then select the tv show button and it show get the poster view.
as i have siad there is a bug in teh clear cache for tv shows so the only option is to uninstall and reinstall but pick a view and keep with it or you have to do this all the time
hope this helps
New bug w/ svn - Playlist for file mode - Robikonobi - 2011-08-07 04:21
With the latest svn, it appears that xbmc commander is not fully working with file mode. Specifically when enqueuing videos using file mode, it no longer shows up on the playlist menu on xbmc commander. Trying to skip ahead to next video on the playlist will also stop xbmc itself. Has anyone else encounter this problem?

He could be on vacation or could be having family issues. 6 weeks really isn't that long.

Is anyone else having problems connecting to their media center? I updated to the latest version of MQ2 last night and ever since then commander has not been able to connect saying "Authentication needed".
I have made sure that "allow programs on other systems to contol xbmc" in network settings has been selected.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Heiner is fine, just busy with work. Looks like the next update may only be once IOS 5 is released.
