Okay, so I was looking at the pics of the latest MC360, and when it shows the Video's section, it shows the DVD Box, and under it, it says the movie name! How do you get it so it will have the Box Cover show up on the screen! Here is the picture of what it looked like:

Thanks for the help!

I don't know what you mean, but do you just mean having the actual thumbnail? Thats just something XBMC does, it searches various movie sites for information on your files and gives them thumbnails. Go check the XBMC forums for more info about it.

You used to be able to highlight the movie you wanted the cover for, press the White button and select "Movie Information". This would get the thumbnail as well as a summary of what the movie was about etc. I've just updated to the latest Tech release and the latest MC360 and this functionality seems to be gone. I tried switching to PM3 skin and its not there either so there must be some underlying XBMC change affecting this. Hopefully the XBMC forums will reveal something as it looks strange with just my newer movies not having the thumbnails.

I worked out how to get the Movie Information button back. I had to set the content type to Movie and select a search source. All is good now.

It's about 5 or 6 months since I last updated XBMC/MC360 and I'll be buggered if I can see any differences apart from having to do the above to get it find movie information.
