    Nice tutorial. Can anyone tell me what does the live tile do on the Films & TV app? The photos app shows thumbnails from the Pictures directory , the groove app shows album covers from the Music directory, but Ive never seen anything but the clapperboard symbol on the Film & TV app, even though I have live tile on.
