Sorry for such a noob question but done some google searches and cant find anything.

How do I get various fanart on the main menu page as the background?

The method I have tried is grabbing the fanart out of Program Files/XBMC and copying the folder but cant find the fan art in the XBMC folder (its not in Userdata).

Any help world be great. Thanks!

thank you but the links aren't working! And am I correct in thinking that the tool will split the fan art from the video/tv show files?

thanks for your help. However, I put the script in the folder XBMC/addons and when I try to run it on XBMC, it says script failed. Am I doing it right?
