Windows Media Center Movies Preview Image

Hello i have recently started using windows media center and when i go to my movie section it show them all but only shows a box with the name,

Is there a way i can get it to show an image of some kind for the movie just like it shows when you go to the directory?

Regards Paul

i like this center app but the sound from it is to quite i can barley hear my movies, do you know how i can increase the sound?

my laptop is normally much louder than that and it is not the movie becuase all of the video files are also quite within the center,

when i play the movies within windows media player the sound is much more better

Also, you can try this: in wmc, go to tasks>settings>general>wmc setup>setup your speakers and follow the instructions, there is setting and for laptop to.
Another thing, If you change the equalizer in wmp, it should make changes in wmc too.
Hope this helps,
cheers

hmm i did do that but nothing really changed, i think it could be just the movie after all and i have got the same settings as that picture which you have listed but i still cannot see the images, do i have to reboot my laptop?
