I have a WDTV HD Live thingy, which I have about 70 odd movies etc connected to so far.
They are all organised in their own folders, with a folder.jpg with the Movie Poster etc so the browser picks them up and displays them with a picture.

What I want to do is place them into categorised folders, eg. Movies, TV Series, Music Videos. But I would like a nice picture for these master folders.

My Photoshop skills are nix. I was wondering if anyone had seen any pictures/Icons on the 'net anywhere that I could purloin?

TIA

These could be a good place to start:

TV Database

Movies

For music, I usually Google fanart for the band/artist I am looking for.

Thanks,

I have no problems getting art for specific shows/movies. I want something generic, so I can create a folder for 'TV Shows', 'Movies', 'Music Videos' etc and have a picture for those header folders.

Try searching for "Imagesbyname" and "media browser". People upload their images and they often include genre icons.
