Banners on Aeon MQ3 - flitter2009 - 2012-01-23 00:11
Thanks for a great skin! I'm having some troubles (and found a few others with the same but couldn't find a result in the huge release thread) with banners though.
Can you clarify exactly which files get read for e banner view? And how to update them? The TV show information update seems to just get the thumbnail and then that gets stretched in the banner view even though they are different shapes. I have banner.jpg files in the show folders and season banners too.

I could be totally missing the mark but have you enabled the correct view type in the settings menu? I remember having to enable quite a few becasue they are turned off from standard.
You are referring to the correct file - banner.jpg.
Is it in the correct folder? from memory it needs to be in the TV Show (not series) folder

Thanks! Yes, I've enabled all the views and selected the one with banners. The banner.jpg is in the show folder.

i have the same problem. The banner displays correctly for older shows. If i scrape new shows the banner.jpg does not get displayed in banner view (or banner info). Although banner.jpg is correct in the /series/ folder. Furthermore the clearart and logo for new series won't show up, even after downloading by the command 'get logo...).
The files for clearart and logo are in the correct place.
The problem exists since ~Dec 2011. I am currnetly using the RC2 of eden.

I had a similar problem with banners being stretched.
Go into your TV library, and bring up the left menu.
Scroll down to "Banner: Default" and hit enter(or however you slect on your remote/PC).
Should switch to "Banner: Alternate"

Hey, i tried that. When i turn on alternate banners the banenrs for the new shows simply don't show up. btw atm instead of the banner the cover is shown. By meaning the cover.jpg is crunched into the size of banner.

Alright, I had that when I first setup my library.
I would suggest downloading Media Companion and loading u your TV shows, then simply go through each show(a little time consuming) and replace the poster with a banner. Its worth the time.

Well that can't be the solution!
The older shows show up correctly! and still banner.jpg = banner and cover = cover.
The skin seems to fuck up the newly scanned shows.

so i replaced the poster file with a banner -> works the banner displays correctly. BUT now the Poster is fucked I talked to a friend and he has the same problem.
@MarcosQui do you have any thogughts on this problem?
I switched the skin to aeon nox and tried to rescan a show for that the post er gets displayed instead of the banner -> result same mistake -> so it might be possible that it's not a MQ3 bug rather than a xbmc bug?
