    How to disable video thumbnails in Media Center?

    Media Center apparently grabs snippets of videos and creates thumbnails from
    them. Before the thumbnails are created each video is listed as a box
    containing the name of the video file. While cute, the thumbnails make
    searching through the videos a time-consuming process. Is there a way to just
    show the names of the videos and not the thumbnails?

    I can't be the only one having this issue. Help, anyone?

    I totally agree. I'm hitting Media Center on Windows 7 Pro, from an XBox 360 Extender and would love to disable thumbnails. Not sure if that would be a Windows/Media Center Setting, or a feature of the extender. Did you ever figure out a solution?

    Also trying to navigate music when you have > 10k songs is rediculously slow. Searching is the only reasonable way to find what you're looking for.
