I mean it doesnt get/found any extrafanart, and use the internet.
I'll need to do some checking. My initial guess is that the local artist artwork will have to be on a local drive. I know when I try and do a slideshow of images on the main home screen that it only works if the images are local, and Artist Slideshow uses the same core XBMC feature to play a slideshow from a folder of images. If you can assign a local drive letter (assuming your using Windows) to the SMB share, you *might* be able to do it that way.

I assumed the artist slideshow would take over from the visualisation, but it appears that it the images are only shown in the transparent parts of the visualisation - this was not clear to me. As soon as i switched off the visualisation i saw the images. I also found two others in which i see the images in the transparent parts.
Maybe the wiki page should also mention this? But maybe i'm just a moron for not thinking of this before :-)
I added a limitations section to the wiki page and noted this (along with the potential issue with local images on an SMB share). Thanks for passing that along.
