I've raised a defect, http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/6333, with an
attached patch for this.

I think I fixed the core problem with fanart, but I saw some inconsistency
in the videodlg.cpp v's the data that is in the settings table.  The
settings screen seems to recognise screenshots, banners and fanart.  The
code looks to recognise fanart and videoart.  It wasn't clear to me what
videoart was in the context of the settings screen, so I suspect these two
areas of code have gotten a little out of synch.  I'm not familiar enough
with the intent to submit a patch for it.  More details are in teh defect.
