OK tearing what little hair I have left out. HTPC is setup and working lovely. Setting up a Media server..... and trying to setup MyHTPC as my frontend on the htpc. Soooooo.....my ripped DVDs are across several drives.....so I thought the best solution was to setup a seperate folder structure on a single drive with a jpeg and a shortcut in each folder and point MyHTPC to that. e.g. f:\R1 Movies\Shrek 2 Then in Shrek 2 there is a jpeg and shortcut to Shrek 2 on Drive Y. Thus when I go to "my Movies" the first thing I get is a jpeg of all the films which is great (looks superb).....click on the one you want and it displays the jpeg in a bigger size but does not show the shortcut so I can't start the movie up. I realise that I could point myhtpc to the DVD folders themselves, but then it displays all the file names (VTS_01 etc...) and I don't want that. I just want a picture and a renamed shortcut......i.e. a pic of Shrek 2 and the words "Shrek 2" which when I click on it starts the movie. This is a very long and convoluted way of asking HOW ON EARTH DO I GET MYHTPC TO RECOGNISE AND DISPLAY A SHORTCUT!!? Aaaaaargh. Thanks...apologies if this is a bit garbled.
