Movie and TV Show Artwork Screensaver?

This seems like a no-brainer to me. Is there some way of changing the screen saver in the TV to use the cover art from your movies and TV shows?

If not, is there a way to export all of your cover art from your iTunes library to JPGs? I guess I could do that and point the photos screensaver to that folder.

I wish I could help you, but you are right, that sounds like a great idea!!!!! Heck even you could get the cover art for the cd's also!....

Thanks. I thought it was a great idea too. I mean the thing is a Movie & TV box... why the hell can't you use your video cover art? For that matter, why is the iTunes Album Art screen saver limited to just music? Hurumph.

Hey! Hooray for me!

I found a little Automator action call Export iTunes Artwork (http://automatorworld.com/archives/e...nes-artwork-2/) and added it to an action that asks for songs from iTunes. Select everything under "Movies" and all of the cover art winds up in \private\tmp!
