    Video thumbnails in Vista Media Center

    Hi folks,

    As I'm sure many of you know, Media Center captures a frame out of a movie file in order to use that as a shortcut/thumbnail image in it's menus (e.g. the Video Library). Is there any way to influence the choice of frame? e.g. either to reject the chosen frame and force a reselection or to reset the 'selection point' through the file from where the snapshot is taken?

    cheers,
    Ben
