Go to File mode
Press 'C' on source
Select Set Content
Select Settings (at bottom)
Select 'Prefer Posters'

Does anyone here have this skin sorted to play trailers pressing down with Apple TV 2g?

Cheers

no, this is to use landscape, you've got a button in setting to download this kind of art, maybe in addon script section .

I did it but nothing changed... Here is how my xbmc is set :

And, of course, that tweak:
Quote:<onclick>XBMC.RunScript(script.logo-downloader,mode=bulk,clearart=False,logo=True,show thumb=landscape.jpg,banner=banner.jpg)</onclick>

if you change setting after you've scraped you library, you'll need either to remove and rescrap your library or refresh informations on each show info screen to get posters !

the first is to know, what kind of image do you want to use ?
banner / landscape / poster ?

then we'll advise you on what to do Wink

I want to achieve the same result as Mcborzu in post #354.


EDIT
Thank you for your help, I finally got it running like I wanted!

Sorry bud, if you were talking about Poster view looks like error was on my end all along:

Line 17, Viewtype_Poster.xml:

Change:

<ondown>2448</ondown>

to

<ondown>2449</ondown>

N.B: As I'm new xbmc user I just can't tell if this is xmbc fault or the skin, but I find it really really odd (and not ergonomic at all) to have to spend x amount of time to refresh a (10_seasons X n_episodes) serie just for the change of a banner to a poster ! Don't you ?

No clue as I don't use ATV or am I using Nightlies. On Windows 7 with Dharma 10.1 everything is normal. Do you have the script?

Thanks for the quick reply. I am using the standard script which comes with "Carmichael"-Skin.
I haven't figured out a way to upload the script as Zip. So I hope it it's ok to do it via copy paste

addon.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes" ?>
- <addon id="script.randomitems" name="Random Items script" version="1.0.11" provider-name="Hitcher">

RandomItem.py comes with the next post

Thanks

@mcborzu

RandomItem.py is to big (too much characters)
