I prefer the look of the movie poster sized album art for Movies and TV Shows in iTunes. However, on the Apple TV, the Apple TV uses the square sized album art. If I have a movie poster sized artwork, a square cropped version is displayed on the Apple TV.

Are there any hacks out there that can force the Apple TV to display the movie poster sized artwork for TV Shows, just like it does already for movies?

I have pulled in square album art for my Tv shows from a couple of sources -

I bring the square art I like into a folder, then set up a rule in iflicks to tag shows with the specific art. It does not affect tagging of other metadata.

Yeah, I know that's an option. I just think the square album art looks cheesy. I very much prefer the movie-poster sized art.

There's a decent atv jailbreak community out there that knows how to install xbmc, plex, and all other kinds of fun things on the atv. Surely someone must be able to figure out how to switch the variable that forces the atv to display square art over rectangular art for tv shows.
