i don't know if this is possible (prolly is by WAY over my head) but maybe someone else can do it

i love all of V4's changes except for the new widecase .. thats the only thing i'd love to bring back from V3

can someone maybe re-add it back ?

i know there is a 10 view limit with older xbmc .. i'm still limited by it .. but i went through horizon and only found 7 views (list, poster, info, showcase, wall, icon, roller)

I'll see if I get a chance to have a look for you. I don't use wide icons anymore, so will be a bit of trial and (much) error.

Go on, switch to poster... you know you want to Wink

Ok,

Last night I switched from widecase to poster veiwShocked

I't doesn't look that bad but one thing i will say is that there is a better choice of banners than posters on thetvdb.com, and as a result i'm missing posters for some of my tv shows.

I've changed the scraper settings to prefer posters. Are there any other sites that are good on tv show posters?

I still prefer bannersNod

Google images + Photoshop usually works for me. Then upload to TheTVDB so everyone can enjoy Wink
