I'm using the latest stable release of Dharma and the Alaska revisited skin downloaded from within XBMC.
I was previously using Transparency as a skin, and so deleted all fanart, posters, etc from the root folders of all TV shows and have followed your following instructions:
Quote:The only thing I didn't do was to resize them as I don't have any issues with slowdowns.
- Have the scraper set to download Posters.
- Download the Banner and Landscape images from TVdb and save them to each TV Show folder naming them banner.jpg and landscape.jpg respectively. I recommend resizing the landscape images to 408x230 to prevent slowdown.
- If you need to change any of the images for whatever reason you'll need to delete userdata/Database/textures.db to force XBMC to re-cache them.
I used the TVDBdownloader to download all possible fanart (/banner /poster /fanart /clearlogo /clearart) by TVDB and manually renamed all the fanart.jpg to landscape.jpg. All fanart was copied to the root folders of the respective TV shows.
I will use Dexter as an example to show my problem:
Regardless of which viewtype I use (except Logo), when I go into TV show information when the show is selected (not at season/episode list), the banner.jpg is shown squashed to the dimensions of the poster.jpg.
However, when I access TV show information from either the season or episode selection screen, the correct poster.jpg is displayed without being squashed.
When I go into TV show information when using the Logo viewtype, I don't get any image displayed there.
This isn't all that much of an issue to me as I prefer using the Panel Wide viewtype anyway.
Please let me know which .xml file I need to edit to change the reference from banner.jpg to poster.jpg for the TV show information dialog accessed from the list of TV shows.
If you need me to clarify the problem I'm facing, I'll be glad to do so.
Otherwise, really love your skin.
Edit: This occurs in all TV shows, and not just Dexter.
