I see - no you're right XBMC sees both as TV shows and picks it's cue from there. it doesn't define it's view type via the shortcut.
The only options I can see would be to either:
1) Scrape your anime movies as content type "movies"
2) Go into Back Row's skin options and select use posters instead of banners for tv shows. Then go through your TV shows scraping a poster thumb instead of a banner type thumb.
3) Or manually change your anime shows poster thumbs to banners.

Thanks darkbettyblue for a great guide.
My only issue is that when I click the newly made category "Cartoon" I dont see a list of all my cartoons but XBMC starts to play the first movie in the playlist
Anything I have missed to do?
Thanks in advanced

Hello Barly - It's supposed to show the playlist rather than play it because I made the custom_DialogFavourites.xml deal with playlist favourites this way:
rather than this way:
I suspect the favourites script has been mucked around with and this has either been removed or it's hopefully just broken.
I'll look into it.
#Edit - no just checked it's cool it's working - you might need to remove your favourite and then re-add it though.

Wierd, but my XBMC installation does not include a custom_DialogFavourites.xml file...
Nor does it contain a $HOME/.xbmc/ folder of any kind...
Though I might add I'm abit new to Linux

Yeah it's only if you are using the Back Row skin - the custom_DialogFavourites.xml is in the Back Row skin's folders

Then I guess I just have to download that skin
