    Add fanart/posters to recorded tv ?

    Setup your recordings to go into folders depending on the type. i.e

    Single recordings > movies folder
    Series/recurring recordings > series folder

    Once done configure something like tinymedia manager to scrape your configured folder.

    Lastly ( for now ) open pluginDefines.xml in the skin folder and edit the following two lines to match your recording locations
    <define property="true" evaluateNow="true">#seriesloc:\\nas4free\nasmedia2\Recordings\series\</define>
    <define property="true" evaluateNow="true">#moviesloc:\\nas4free\nasmedia2\Recordings\movies\</define>

    Doing this will give you poster and fanart for your recordings when available like the attached picture

    Create custom tiles:

    This is using photoshop and the psd is linked at the bottom.

    For the tiles follow the naming structure i have included in the folders as examples and also where to place them ( Ares\media\btn\ ( then focus or unfocus )).

    Open Photoshop
    File > open and select the psd.
    File > open and select your new image.

    In your image choose select >select all and then ctrl+c to copy the image.

    In the psd use the direct selection tool then right click on the tile and choose select then ok, once highlighted use the paste into tool from the menu.
    Save the tiles with focus frame on/off for focus/unfocus.

    Drop your new tiles into Ares>Media>btn>focus/unfocus

    The list of available tiles is updated every time you start mediaportal.
