I have installed MP 1.7 and am struggling with a few things. There are so many settings I find it quite overwhelming but I am sure I will get to grips with it over time.

In the meantime could someone give me a bit of help on how I get my Movies to show with all the coverart and synopsis etc. I have managed to get all the coverart etc but when I open MediaPortal I have to click on the folder before I see the coverart etc. I want to see it like it is in the 2nd picture here

One more thing, how do people install MP? I have an SSD and dont really want to fill it with cover art etc. Is it better to place it on my second hdd?

I'm new to mediaportal, but I think I had the same issues. I'm not too sure about how I resolved it, but I think you have to uncheck "every movie in its own folder" in the config utility plus when you go in "menu' in the screen capture (to the left), select something else than "show by playlist"

Sorry if this is not exactly as I say since it is by memory, I'm not home.
