I have a directory of personal movies that I view in XBMC on my Apple TV (2nd Generation). I created "nfo" files for movie information. The movies are in a single folder called "MyMovies", and are named, for example:
MyMovie1.m4v (movie)
MyMovie1.nfo (movie info)
MyMovie1.tbn (movie cover thumbnail)
MyMovie2.m4v
MyMovie2.nfo
MyMovie2.tbn
etc.

I created a single folder on my NAS drive named "Actors" which contains all the actors thumbnail files. The code in the nfo files to grab the actor information and image is:

<actor>
<name>John Doe</name>
<role>Himself</role>
<thumb>\drive\directory\Actors\John_Doe.tbn</thumb>
</actor>

<actor>
<name>Jane Adams</name>
<role>Herself</role>
<thumb>\drive\directory\Actors\Jane_Adams.tbn</thumb>
</actor>

But when I view in the movie info in XBMC, everything works fine (movie plot, poster art, director, actor names, etc.) except the actor images, which are blank. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? What the proper code needed in my nfo file to get XBMC to display the actors images?
Thanks a million for your help.
