Currently for most addons the defualt view you get is the list. Some times if the content has been set to 'movies' or 'tvshows' then you can change the view to say fanart or something. But you have to pretty much do it on each page of the addon.
Can I somehow say if the conetnt is set to Movies then the default view is "Fanart", if "tvshows" then "MediInfo 2", seasons "list" etc? So that I don't have to change everytime I visit a part of the plugin i haven't visited before.
Plus even when you change it, XBMC tends to forget the setting especially for the addons.
