For some reason fanart is not displaying on my homescreen when i scroll to 'Music'. I have no problem with single of multi image but when i select 'Fanart' nothing is displayed.

This will only work when you have a music library, not with files.

Thanks for the reply but I'm not understanding what you mean. Any music I have is on my home CPU and I stream it over my network.

you have to make sure that you added your music directory as music source (right-click on folder in music files mode and click on "scan to database" or something like that.

I myself am having the same problem. Music is all tagged ran, ran cdArt manager so i know all artwork is in the correct folders but i cannot find the option anywhere. When playing music all that is shown is the cdart the playlist and the menu artwork. Please assist me in this problem, I don't want to have to use Zune for listening purposes Sad
