I'm pretty sure this has been asked and answered in the past, but I couldn't find anything on it...

If I start a playlist with:

Code:
XBMC.PlayMedia($INFO[Skin.String(Menu_Custom6_Path)])

It plays just fine, but there is no fanart displayed. If I start the same playlist in party mode the fanart dsiplays just fine:

Code:
XBMC.PlayerControl(PartyMode) $INFO[Skin.String(Menu_Custom6_Path)]

Is there some other way to play a playlist in order and get the fanart to display?

Thanks,

The first *should* work. If it doesn't then IMO it's a bug. My guess is that somewhere we're losing the fact that we have full metadata for the playlist.

Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search the forum before posting.
Do not e-mail XBMC-Team members directly asking for support. Read/follow the forum rules.
For troubleshooting and bug reporting please make sure you read this first.
