Showing a large image on roListScreen

Amazon's list screen shows a nice, large image in the open space to the right. I'd like to do something similar, but the only thing I can find to do is provide a URL in the content metadata which gets set in the 250x250 area. Anyone know what is available to use for drawing a static image off to the side? Is it possible to show an roImageCanvas on top of a screen?

It's not documented, but the attributes are: HDBackgroundImageUrl and SDBackgroundImageUrl

You can see an example in this blog post: http://blog.roku.com/developer/2012/08/ ... avigation/

Awesome, thank you!

Any chance you know what the undocumented dimensions or origin coordinates are? Trial & error works, but is slow and I don't want it looking strange on someone else's TV.

It can be any size up to full screen. It's top-right aligned, starting at the bottom of your overhang.
