Very few skins have trailers built in to then. Aeon is one of the few.

I think Alaska also allows for trailers.

YouTube - XBMC Pt 5 The Noobs Guide To Creating The Ultimate HTPC

Thats what I was using, seemed to work well.

Its the skin im using on my MAG XBMC rig, looks amazing and runs MUCH better then any of the Aeons. Designed by the same make of Aeon (Hitcher).

Alaska - XBMC Community Forum

YouTube - Alaska - sep 24th preview

Its more muted, the overlays help with performance. Runs silky smooth on my Ion/Atom system and you can changed the color schemes.

Did you use ember or xbmc to snag your trailers?

I haven't used Ember in a while now and I forget how to use it... How do I scrape the shows automatically instead of doing each show by itself?

EDIT: For some reason the 'Scrape Media' button is blanked out for TV Shows.
