xbmc scraper doesn't create thumb, it's only putting image in xbmc cache.
it will create a folder.jpg when exporting db in multiple files.

This seems to be the standard:
folder.jpg = your main, XBMC cached thumb
landscape.jpg = a 16x9 thumb
banner.jpg = a banner thumb
poster.jpg *is this used? I know I use it but for testing purposes as I use Landscape as my main...
What seems to be the main consensus is to have XBMC scrape Posters by default, then we provide the "hacks" to allow landscape.jpg/banner.jpg as skin settings...
Also not sure whats up with the Ember scene since Nuno left but there used to be an XBMCstuff.com addon, not sure if there is a new one for Fanart.tv?

Yeah I don't personally use Landscape, Banner or Poster probably why I've always neglected them preferring folder.jpg (either a banner or a poster) as an easy goto standard. Happy to adapt to what people want though.

Well I would LOVE that, but doesn't XBMC scrape banners as default for TV Shows?
- djdafreund - 2011-03-08 23:37
yeah, by default it does get/use banners, which is the only reason i assumed we used banner images for tv guide. At least ever insta/l i've personally setup was default this was. I know we can do poster format for tv shows, i've just always left things default, which i'm sure are cool also.
Knowing about those tv logo downloader settings, i'll give that a shot and see how that works. Usefull info to know,n thanks for sharring and doing that. GREAT script!!!!

It certainly is a great script amongst the other cool addons he's made - I'm still smiling from people's reactions to ppic's tv tunes script when they see it all working on my setup at home and then hear the theme music start.
Well then what do we reckon? Continue with folder.jpg as the standard or move to banner.jpg and poster.jpg?

yeah, GREAT WORK ON INTEGRATING, AND GREAT (oops) work on the script also. He DOES have some great ones,no doubt.
I would like to eb able use have it use banners and posters if we CAN use, tied in with db, but if nnot, i don't prefer to have someone be aware to HAVE to use an external grabber to get images for folder.jpg, since we integrate a method to get those already (logo downloader), there ould be less questions aout this. That's just MY opinion. I'm gonna check out ppic's suggestion about chnging things in config to handle the grabbing of banners and naming them automatically if we aren't able to use the banners the scraper uses. .

the point is:
you don't know what will be the xbmc or the folder.jpg, banner poster or landscape ...
so with logo downloader downloading banner.jpg / poster.jpg / landscape.jpg, you can use each kind of thumb freely...
that's my point, you can make views knowing what kind of image you have.
