[mythtv-theming] Conditions in themes

Hi everyone,

I'm in the process of adapting some themes to my liking and came to a 

First of all, where can I get information about existing states I can 
query from within the theme, I found
and the subsequent pages about the different *-ui.xml themes.

Is this information up to date? Or are there more hidden ones? Or a 
better place to look?

My reason for looking is this:

In MythVideo I'd like to display the screenshot of a movie, ONLY IF no 
cover is available. Is that possible? I am under the impression I need 
to define some new statetype, is that correct? That has to be done in 
the mythtv source itself, right.

Could perhaps perhaps someone point me to the right direction
(I tried grep'ing the code for state or statenames, but didn't seem to 
find anything useful)
