    Anybody else had trouble getting on the site the last few days? Everytime I've tried I get the server not found message.
    Thanks

    They have moved to a newer server, and are having a little trouble getting the DNS to propigate...
    Try this... a direct link to it.

    Is there any sites that are free? DVDCOVERART costs credits to d/l and they don't seem to have the most current covers, like xXx.

    The new credit system at DVDCoverArt.com is, I think, pretty fair. You get 10 credits just for signing up, and additional credits are pretty cheap.

    There are currently some 700+ pending covers that are waiting to be verified and placed on the site. xXx is probably in there somewhere. Patience...

    Not that have dvdcoverart's selection... or quality.. they tend to be picky about the covers they accept.
    And as Dave said... they are pretty reasonable. 10 credits for free (10 covers), and a whopping 10 bucks for 100 covers after that. I know it kinda sucks to pay for covers... but they go through SO much bandwidth, it ain't funny... it's worth it. [​IMG]
    xXx just came out on Tuesday. I doubt anyone has made customs for it yet. Hang tough. [​IMG]

    Are you looking for custom cover, or just cover scans?

    cdcovers.cc has all kinds of covers, CD, MD, DVD, PC games and software, some anime, etc. [​IMG] Not a very high resolution though on some.
    khitomer.net has covers for all episodes for some 30 sci-fi related TV series.

    I'll put up a scan of xXx tonight assuming the one someone uploaded is of decent quality

    I'd like to see the last few Total Movie DVD covers. Any chance of that? I think Matt has a great site and I just got my Star Wars covers for my LD backups to DVD. Thanks Matt [​IMG] I plan on buying the $10.00 for 100 downloads just to help out the site a little. Anybody who uses the site should do the same so it doesn't disappear. It's well worth a $10.00 investment.

    Can we kindly cut the "wink" "wink" rhetoric
    here? You guys know about our policies here and
    I don't want any further complaints from the
    membership reaching me on account that some of
    you are trying to be cute about describing
    activities that should not be discussed here.

    I am sure you understand where I am coming from.

    I completely agree about paying for the credits. While I like the Total Recall:SE planet and the Wicker Man box (among numerous others), they're not very practical in the rack. Needless to say, I have transplanted the discs and the printed out covers from the website into my own cases. The dvdcoverart.com site also has the inserts for a "complete package," as well as a large number of custom covers. Check 'em out.
