There are tickets in trac for some drag options and other touch related functions that are not currently supported. I can only think of two skins that were built around touchscreens that work reasonably well. Touch! and Joggler. I prefer Joggler (http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=84175).
Thank you Yolan....
Now i've got to find a way to get control of the skin to change the settings

I am using Apple TV 2 latest nightly build 08 and The Carmichael skin. I noticed that the thumbnails on the main menu "Movies" (Latest Added Movies) on the left are not updated with the latest scraper information.
Example: Unstoppable is a movie from 1992 with Wesley Snipes and it's also a 2010 movie with Denzel Washington. Suppose in your library you fix the problem to point to the Denzel Movie, the thumbnail is correctly updated in the library but not in the "Latest Added Menu" on the left, it keeps the original thumbnail even after restarting xmbc
Hope it's clear

1. Could be an ATV2 thing...
2. Does it happen in regular Win/Mac/linux builds? I'll test on win7 when I get home...
3. Can't see a way a skin has any control of this, either it's an XBMC/ATV2 bug or just needs the cache refreshed, which is every 24hrs?, I think....

Nope, its not isolated to the ATV2, happens in the Win build as well.
Also when you update info in the library the thumbnails are lost in the "Files" menu, they just dissapear. and nothing seems to bring them back. Although they still work in the library, they are orever lost in the files window. only way to recover them is to delete the item (be it tv show or movie) from the library and rescan it.
(Granted this may be related to the fact that i'm using a third party nightly build)
It doesn't inconvienience me much since i control the "files" in my household, and all other users have access to is the library.

1. "Changing thumb still keeps old thumb on recently added section" appears in Confluence also, still waiting to see if it's just a cache thing...
2. Couldn't duplicate changing thumb also loses it in Files mode though. The old thumb, my folder.jpg, still showed. Which is the intended XBMC behavior, File mode pulls folder.jpg..
I use local content- folder.jpg, fanart.jpg, etc... if it makes a difference

Here is something which is probably Carmichael only and perhaps ATV2, the option under Settings for Video to change the scraper does not quite work...
I had default scraper as TheMovieDB but then i got the wrong information on the movie or some movies i had it could not find, so i went into Settings/Video and changed default scraper to IMDB. Went back to my movies and it still used TheMovieDB to pull information. So i held the MENU button on my AppleTV remote and Edit Source, then there i changed the scraper to IMDB and it worked

The Carmichael skin can't play movie trailers when I view the movies list

Perhaps the links are dead; what happens if you try playing them from the video info screen?
