I use metax to get metadata for my movies and TV shows, and I want my library to look complete.

I can't figure out a way where I can have both a season artwork and episode poster frame. It's possible since this is how it works for content purchased from iTunes.

On the Appletv it just shows the image of the season artwork for every episode and I would love for it to be a legit poster frame.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. :)

I don't think it is possible with local media. Unless, of course, you make every episode it's own file (no season organization) and tag it manually with your chosen artwork.

I use Plex (http://www.plexapp.com/), which automatically downloads metadata, subtitles and movie and TV posters. It's also a better way to view them than iTunes.

I used to run xbmc, but I'm simply using iTunes now since its compatible with my video formats. I also have the new appletv and it can't be jail broken yet.
