For some of my TV shows XBMC grabs the thumbs while for other shows it does not.
Which website does XBMC grab the TV show information and thumbs?
Is there any web site that i can go to were i can grab the thumbs myself?

The site used to grab thumbs depends on the scraper you chose for the folder - either TV, TheTVDB, TVRage etc.
The thumbnails obviously only download if they exist, so unfortunately not every episode always has them.
If you want to grab them yourself then the same sites would be used, and save the image you want, then "Set Thumb" in XBMC. Of course for this it can take more time, but means you'll always get the image you want. You can use any image as well, entirely up to you, or even create your own, although if you use any of the wiki sites, I reckon you should upload any you do make - even if they arent good, everyone likes thumbs rather than none (I believe).
