Forgive me if this was covered on another forum but I didn't see it if it was...Is there anyway to create a thumbnail picture for my home movies so it will appear in the grid view?

Get your picture and name it exactly the same as your movie name.

Thanks for the reply! I tried this and it worked but not quite 100%. My home movies are in a folder called:
The home movie that I wanted a thumbnail for is called:
2010 Outerbanks.avi (which resides in the 2010 Videos folder)
I took a jpeg pic and renamed it: "2010 Outerbanks.jpeg" and dropped it in the 2010 Videos folder.
The thumbnail appears in the 2010 Videos folder and not the 2010 Outerbanks.avi file...
Am I doing something wrong?

Another thing that I just tried and is weird: I placed a jpg for a movie in the folder and renamed it to match the movie. I didn't like the way it looked so I deleted the jpg from WDTV internal drive...WDTV Hub then said "compiling media library" so I thought it was removing the thumbnail, but it still shows up as a thumbnail...???? I must be doing something wrong.....

As above, make sure the extension is .jpg, not .jpeg!
Also, keep the filesize and dimensions fairly small. Less than 70kb and about 200x300px.
