Windows 7: MCE Video Scan & Video Thumbnail Display

MCE Video Scan & Video Thumbnail Display

Until now, I've never bothered with Media Center, so my first experience with it was pretty much just following my nose. I had it scan the root folder of my video collection, but it only found 168 out of ~ 1000 of the files. How do I get it to find all of them?

The second question is that each movie is displayed with a large text box, with no image for easy recognition. How do I get it to display both?
