I doubt that it would cause a problem with the metadata in Watch
Recordings, I don't think it looks anything up, other than images for
the recordings. I'm not too concerned about the Futurama fanart I
thought that one might be unrelated, but maybe it's not.

I just renamed Bones_fanart.jpg to Bones_fanart.jpg.temp and copied
Castle_fanart.jpg (one that works) to Bones_fanart.jpg and it still
wouldn't load, so I really doubt it's the photos. I tried to find an
error in the mythfrontend -v all output, but I didn't see anything. I
could see where the fanart that was working was loading and being
cached. I could also see a list of the fanart available, which
included the images that aren't working, but no errors.
