I am just using MediaBrowser now and having it download the basic information. I have it all set up with my TV shows and it looks great.

I am currently writing a series of guides for the site that incorporate some of these hacks. Thanks rsvr and others for your contributions.

Welcome to mintywhite marthespot, Sure! You need to edit the batch file. Right click it and select edit.
You need to go to the bottom of the file, just above pause. Type out a command for each of your movie directories (there can be as many as you like);
StarkCovers.exe C:\YourMovies case:bd.png

Save the file, go back to the batch file and double click it. A command prompt will pop up and process your pictures. You need to be sure that the directories are fully correct, no spaces are in the titles, and that your pictures you want changing are named folder.
If you find you've messed up, don't worry, go back and edit the file again, delete case:bd.png and enter -revertjpg instead. Save and run the batch file again. Everything that was changed before will have been reverted.

Here's an example for you.

By any chance did you figure out how to change that folder icon on the main page. It is kinda ugly =)

Great thanks!

One last thing and I'll leave you alone. Have you came across the issue where you can't add media browser to the start menu. For some reason it lets me select add to start menu but it never shows up there. I can only access it under extra's.

I'm running windows 7 x64

There seems to be a bug in the new build which won't show MB in the start menu. To add a custom strip of your own read the follow up comment (by me) on the tut above ;)
I think that should solve your problems :D
