Full Version: Random Fanart on home screen?

Is there any way to get the fanart that is downloaded from plexbmc to be used on the home screen for movies and TV shows? I'm using a nexus player so my userdata folder is not accessible from the background selection.
Hi,
You can choose background (or multiple) for each section (Movies, TVShows etc...) in the skin settings.

I am trying to just use the default backgrounds provided with the skin for each category, but cannot find a way to do this. I am only getting the amber "bubble" for everything. How can I change them to show the individual backgrounds?

You want a default background for each section ? Or change the default background ?
Right now, the only background I can seem to have show for all categories in main GUI is only the amber bubbles one. In skin settings under backgrounds, I see the others (AddOns, Music, Movies, etc) but I don't see how to select & save each one so that they will come up when I sort thru on the main GUI. I don't want to add customs ones, only use the ones provided w/ the skin.
In other words, I see this for every screen:

but I want the individual backgrounds to show, like this:

You want the bubble background for each section ? (sorry i'm not english, so i do not always understand everything correctly)
What do you have in the folder "AppData/Roaming/Kodi/addons/skin.amber/backgrounds" ?

No, I want the different backgrounds for each section, not to be all the same one. Since they are viewable in the skin setting, I am not seeing where to save them so they can show when I go back to main screens
Did you try to reinstall the skin ?

Uninstall and reinstall manually from https://github.com/jester-xbmc/skin.amber
I finally figured it out - you have to select the background for each view , then hit the default button to the right. Probably would make it clearer if that button was labeled "apply"
All good now, thanks for your help.
Glad you've succeeded.
