Please advise howto configure correctly. Any other startup tips howto configure the best way on this great piece (but limited in resources) of hardware are welcome!

Regards,
J.

No sorry I have only used it with a USB stick plugged directly in my TV with the RCA audio and vidoe cables.
Video format mp4.

? Thanks, but Raspberrry Pi comes with Frodo/Openelec. No way I see where this Ember-article can help.

ok it was just a side idea
Ember Media Manager is the all in one media manager for the popular XBMC. An open source media manager for Windows.

Have you sorted them from videos and movies then maybe rebooted it?
As I said I haven't tried your method so can't fully help with screen shots and stuff like that
Which version of OpenELEC  do you have?
OpenELEC 3.0 is built to support XBMC Frodo 12.1 and almost every part of the core OS has been updated and improved since the 2.0 release. The project now supports a broader range of media centre hardware

Take a look at the screenshots here is this what yours looks like?
