You need to be using a theme that has support for it (Graphite, Blue
Abstract, Mythbuntu, Terra, etc). Then you need to get artwork. In
mythvideo you can hit 'W' to grab the metadata and fanart for
individual videos. And/or you can use JAMU
(http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Jamu) to do bulk updates, maintenance,
watch recordings artwork, etc.
