Any idea why while on radio stream the fanarts work only when the background is set to "slideshow" (like in the screenshot below):
Slideshow (script Artist Slideshow - AS) gets fanart from Internet (or from your own cache or/and local folder artist/extrafanart).
For this to be good enough, AS must properly recognize artists in the song name (radio stream).
He does not always succeed.

You need to have a path set to a music folder (top menu, music library)

In the pic below you see a song with 3 different artists and the only way I manage to get fanarts and logos of all 3 of them was to set the background to "artist fanart".

Unfortunately it would only work for the artists you have on your disc.

ps.
1. Unfortunately for the radio stream we will not always have all the fanarts for all the artists.Frown
2. I also use Skin Helper Serviceto show fanarts.
It works fine, but you need additional modifications to the Musicvisualisation.xml file to make it work for you
