Make xbmc update the thumbnails and posters automatically.
#1
I have changed all my tv show posters to banners but I have to go and manually change each tv show thumbnail in xbmc.

is it possible to have xbmc change the thumbs automatically when the image has changed from the source?

Seems to specific to your problem to be a generally useful feature.

XBMC uses a cache for the thumbnail pictures. It is refreshed every day. Reloading the skin often kicks this automatic refresh(not always though)

why don't you just name them banners.jpg
Almost all skins support both posters.jpg and banners.jpg by changing a setting to show them correctly. After that there should be no problems and you can use all the different views available.

You mean if you change local artwork xbmc now updates the cache on its own once a day, I guess this is pre eden only though or have I been living on another planet ?
