Hi - Not sure if this is a question or a feature request, but I don't see a way to set fanart for moviesets. There appears to be support for posters via the context menu, but not fanart.

Is there a way to add this in Confluence? If no, please consider this a request.

Thanks - and on the topic, it would be great if we could remove the YEAR: Not Available and GENRE: Not Available off the screen when you hover on the movieset.

I don't believe there there is much support for moviesets thus far as the feature itself is relatively new.

There are some things I would like to see however:
  • When pressing "info" show a list of the movies contained in the set
  • Also be able to show that same list via infolable
  • and of coarse the a fore mentioned fanart support

Not sure if these are being worked on, but if not I will open a trac if needed.

Had a quick look on Trac, and it looks like spiff has added a limited fanart support to sets, in that a set takes the fanart of the first item in the set.

Possibly, I do not know at which revision the support was added, but it might well be (try the latest nightly build from xbmc.org).
