    I was wondering if there was any way to have the default or titan skin use a "backdrop.jpg" image without having to use the Moving Pictures plugin. It's a nice plugin, but I had started putting "folder.jpg" & "backdrop.jpg" in movie folders (as that is the naming scheme that plugin uses).

    Was kind of hoping the new v1.5 of Media Portal would support something like that by now, but it will not display the custom backdrop screens. I tried renaming the "backdrop.jpg" to "filename.jpg" (where it was the same as the filename) but that did not work (I had read it might).

    Anyways, was someone else had run into this situation, where they just want to provide their own artwork (and possibly a movie description in .txt format to would be cool) and then not have to reply on using a plugin and build a database, etc.

    Thanks for any help.
