8 New Image Types

By Kode | | Latest News, Website

Today we have added EIGHT new image types, the most we have ever added in one go before, and in an unprecedented move we have no images available for any of them! With thetvdb having issues with bandwidth (that should be resolved soon) we decided to add banner support here (both season and series) to hopefully help alleviate some of the stress, but as this is fanart.tv we decided to raise the bar a bit to prepare for future sized big screens…. We have kept the aspect ratio the same but changed the image size to 1000 x 185px and …

60.000 images available

By Martijn | | Latest News, Website

The milestone   Yesterday July 30,¬† 2012 we hit another important milestone. More 60,000 images are currently hosted by fanart.tv It was only 7 weeks ago on June 14 that the 50,000 milestone was hit. So 10,000 images added within such a short time period is truly amazing.

Ideas for supporting the site needed

By Kode | | Latest News, Website

On the 24th March we asked for help paying for the server, and lots of you generously donated enough to pay for the server for 3 months, that money ran out after the May 27th payment, so the June 27th payment I mostly funded myself. We currently have ¬£13 a month coming in from recurring donations vs a ¬£78.98 a month server cost, so thanks to the guys who set up recurring donations, it’s most appreciated, unfortunately it falls well short of what’s needed. I am currently in the process of buying a house, so if the site is unable …

XBMC for Android

By Martijn | | Latest News, Media Centre, XBMC

So as an XBMC Team member I think it’s my duty (and also proud) to make this post to say XBMC for Android is coming. Still a lot of work has to be done and it is only available for the ones that can compile it themselves. No it isn’t available yet in Play Store so if you find any app that poses as XBMC hit report before it gets a bad name. More info can be found on XBMC for Android press release.
