Media Center album view

    I'm having trouble with my dad's Media Center. Usually when he goes into My Music and into the Albums section it shows all his albums in a grid with album art. Recently, however, it has been showing up in a text only list. I've looked through all the settings but I can't seem to find it. It seemed to happen after I installed Windows Media Player 11, but uninstalling that didn't help.

    Any suggestions?

    when do we get 3d stacks that show depth and fanned overlays in 3d for all this stuff?


     *above shows stacks  25%  50% and 100% (75%  not shown)
     
     * so... to make the percent work - i guess youd need a right mouse flyout on folder "Stack"   Then any folders in that folder = contents displayed as per what is inside them as % of overall file per folder tally (3d)

    * edit - i know vista had stacks (& baskets?)...then saved searches ... not sure what it is now - hope its like above  (like icons above that show height) click one - the album covers (or thumbnails) flyout in a fan/overlap..  or something. Ive only loaded Vista on laptop - never used "aero" ...ever


    ps - Steve jobs better not be the only steve who's "hidding features" Wink

    CoverFlow works quite well for plating specific albums, but erm.. OSX. Sorry.  It still isn't as fancy as Jamie's stacks.

    * seems everyone wants to change things - not make them better (thats the way it was and we liked it!) - .  Me - id leave < interuption - Click - "Restart later"> what everyone knows - then blow them away with a new classic - better -a 6 million dollar man classic - luna vista - aero vista... bla bla  (how ID software would do Classic..etc)  but have the old ones too!

    anyway this is all old news
    im going to cottage for 3 days - no internet - recharrrrge
