Did you grab the latest bits from Git ?

Tested again on another device -> correctly sorted. I assume Marcel commited faster as you can download and your current version is behind his branch Tongue
Latest version, still not showing the correct posters.

Home screen using both vfs and skin helper ways -

Opening vfs (same as home) -

And then opening skin helper way (different to home) -

Neither is correct as these are the first posters -

EDIT: Seem the skin helper genre posters are just randomly generated as they change on reboot.
Hi Marcel,

any reason why skin helper wouldn't show up when I list all my add-ons? Got the latest from GIT and wanted to enable debugging to see if that gives me more info on the animated posters issue but can't find it to configure it?
Try System > Addons > Running.
Hi Hitcher,

I don't have running as an option, my setting level is expert as well, any ideas?

Aah! Now I know what you mean!

The GENRE list itself is sorted alphabetically, not the posters, they are random...
Do you want the posters to be in alphabetical order too ? I thought it was nice to just grab random posters from the genre

It should be listed under "dependencies". Because it's a helper service (meant to be installed by the skinner, not the user) it won't show in any of the categories.

Also it will show up if you navigate to videos --> video-addons

That's the question I'm thinking about since yesterday.
What about adding that option as an argument "....&random=true"? (for the list and webservice)
Sorry, I should have explained it more clearly. Yes, I'd like the ability to grab the first 3 posters alphabetically.

OK, please grab the latest Git, it should now be sorted by default and randomized is optional

Yep, works.

Only the webservice once are still random
