What dimensions or ratio of height to width are people using for their movie artwork? Music artwork seems to scale fine, but the movie artwork is quite pixelated. It generally looks ok, except for the one movie that's selected. I checked and PIL is definitely installed, shouldn't PIL be doing the scaling smoothly?
It could be because it's scaling for an SD screen and maybe you have a larger HD screen? The SD/HD thing is one of the things that we never got around to fully handling. You can try disabling the PIL package to see if it looks better. Just rename the PIL directory to something like PILtmp temporarily and restart the server. It's in C:\Python26\Lib\site-packages by default in Windows.
Another thing to try is to edit common.py and change the two linesTHB_DIM = THB_SD_DIM
FULL_DIM = FULL_SD_DIM
toTHB_DIM = THB_HD_DIM
FULL_DIM = FULL_HD_DIM
Hmmm, I wonder how hard it would be to write something to interface with the MyMedia server that could transcode non-compliant video on the fly.
