    I think it uses mediainfo.dll

    The location of the mediainfo codec images is skin dependent, but the images will be in the /skin/skinname/media folder or within a subfolder of that.

    MP-TV Series calls them 'Logos'. Like kiwijunglist says, MediaInfo is taken from the files and then in MP-TV Series Config you have the Logo Rules which define what logo to show when:

    OMG Guys! That screen shot just blew my mind! That is so cool. I wanted to have some custom logos for different type of files (say web rips vs TV) so I guess I just need to look into how this works, find some simple logos and make it work!

    It uses pseudo-SQL to be able to match values from the SQLite database with what you want to check for. Simply looking at the existing rules and you get a very good idea on how it works, but you can use an SQLite tool to view the DB3 file to get more column names to check for, provided they are part of the tables that are supported.

    Thanks guys for the help. Kind of hit a snag. When I went into my config for MP-TVSeries, there was not a logo tab. I'm using just the blue skin (standard). I am using MP-TVSeries V 3.3.3.3.1972 with Media Portal 1.3 Alpha.

    Are there some rules that I could start with that someone else has created or will it be different for my setup?

    In your skin folder you will see a file called TVSeries.SkinSettings.xml, by default the skin controls the logos so it makes sense to hide this information from the user in configuration so they don't feel overwhelmed and obligated to change it...you can override this behaviour so you control the logos by setting the logo rules import attribute to false in the xml file:

    <logos import="false">
