Now have some other questions. I have over 100 music video's all in mkv format. how to get them to show up in MB. They show up now but no thumbs. how can I make custom thumbs for these.
OK BadgeMaster I found a answer for you.
If you cant follow this let me know and I will spell it out for you.

Create a sub directory called metadata in the folder which has your video. Then create an XML file in the metadata folder whose name is identical to that of the video just with an extension .XML. In the XML file create a tag like the following:

<Item>
<filename>XXXXXXX.jpg</filename>
</Item>

Then place the custom Thumbnail (XXXXXXX.jpg) in that metadata directory.

got it. now 2 more stumpers for you.

1) is it possible to put a folder in for games then when clicked all games will show up and can i then play the game. have wireless xbox controller that i use now on my pc but would like to see about setting this up down stairs. I no im going to have to load each game on the media pc so all the .dll files are in windows but can they be played right from MB????

2) I'm using my pc to get all the folders and subfolders and more sub folders set up. also ripping my dvd collection with it and converting files. alot faster i7 940 clocked at 3.8ghz gygabyte x58 extreme 12gb 1800mhz ram raid 5 4.5tb 42xdvd drive 2 ati 4870x2 in crossfire blu-ray drive in transit. but my question is after this is all done can i just take the confiuration file in program data/media browser and copy that to each pc after mb is installed. my pc is pointing to my networkstorage device and all pc will access that same device.??????

I messed what you were asking here.
Use the config tool in the win start menu to choose a icon for the start up folders

EDIT: or maybe I didn't . Hell its late and my eye are about glued shut, so im not sure what you were asking.LOL
