    The skin shows my video fanart when I navigate to the video section.
    It doesn't do this when navigating to the music section or to the pictures setting.
    Have I missed a configuration or is this a bug or a "missing feature"?

    It would be extremely GPU consuming when doing this.
    As a lot of users don´t have super powerful HTPCs, I decided to not put that in ;)

    @catavolt
    Thx for your answer.

    For pictures this is understandable for me. The pictures are big and the CPU/GPU has to scale them down to the screen size.
    But just for my understanding:
    What about music? Music Fanart is as big as the movie fanart that is displayed when navigating to the video section. That is working fine. And my htpc is not highend it is a Core2Duo with 1,86 GHz and a ATI 4350.
    Is there any other difference?

    If a GPU can play video then it surely can show a static (excluding fades) fan art in the background. Showing video is requiring much more from GPU and if GPU is not powerful enough to play a video then it serves no purpose for MP.

    The new xml seems no to be part of RC. Does this one work with RC?

    The above posted xml does work with RC - and no, it´s not integrated as standard xml ;)

    Is there any reason not to integrate the music fanart on home screen into 1.4?
    Would be nice...
