Cover Flow Help in Media Center

Can someone please help me with setting up my cover flow in media center?
I am running Windows 7, build 7100. I have configured the vanilla theme and activated cover flow and back drop. All I get when I go to movies, are thumbnails and nothing else :mad:
Am I missing something obvious here:lease: I have searched through the threads here, but I cannot find anything that seems to help.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Are you talking about Media Center or Media Browser??

You might be confused, or we might be. Natively, 7MC doesn't do "cover flow" and there's nothing in it called the Vanilla theme.

There is a Vanilla theme in Media Browser, though, which is an installable plugin for VMC and 7MC that has a cover flow style theme...

Have you downloaded and installed Media Browser?

Have you seen a picture somewhere that's made you think "I want THAT"? If so, stick a link up.

Sorry about the confusion.

Hope that this helps a bit more.

I think so. I have all my movies in individual folders, each containing the movie, a jpeg file and a dvdid.xml file. Does this seem correct? Maybe if not, could you show me how they should be?

Thanks for the help, I think that I am missing something obvious :confused:

I have the view set for cover flow, but all I get is a thumbnail showing. I will post an image tomorrow from my other PC to try and show the problem.
Thanks for all your help.
