Lightbulb  Weather Backdrop based on boolean conditions...
Post: #48
I was thinking of a kind of 'FanArt' backdrop function for weather with different backdrops for each kind of typical weather condition, with a standard directory structure so one could use multiple images for each type of weather condition, for example something similar to this:

That functionality exists right now, though its only via the icon number rather than directly using the weather condition name. Nuka added this a couple months ago I think, but it didn't seem to draw too much attention at the time. I posted a fanart pack for it a while back. Could use some expanding, but still have several hundred pictures there...

the original weather fanart discussion...http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=40709

About 5 pages in nuka added the infolabel and mentions how to use it.
