Hi

Can anyone confirm if AD should download TV Show Season Posters when run in Solo mode? I have enabled that option in the AD settings and I have local files enabled but none ever appear on the file server. If I run Gui mode instead and select a particular season poster then that works and the image file is put on the file server.

I asked a question back here previously about why new seasons of an existing TV Show never seem to get a season poster image?

I can post a debug log file upon request if that would help?

Thanks for any advice.

EDIT:

Here is a debug log file: http://pastebin.com/671NZJfd

For the TV Show "The Blacklist" currently Season 2 has no poster and is blank.

Looking on the file server there are currently no season poster artwork images at all present. So Season 1 must have got its poster on first import in to XBMC with TheTVDB.com scraper?

So I ran AD solo mode against this TV Show, the report said it had downloaded 5 images, all of which were just extrafanart.

Still no season poster for Season 2.

I then ran AD Gui mode against this TV Show. Selected Season Posters and picked a poster for Season 2, AD then proceeded to download it to my file server and the file is called: season02-poster.jpg

However looking in XBMC there is still no poster showing on Season 2.

So I then right clicked Season 2 and selected Choose Art -> Poster -> Browse -> Item Folder and selected the season02-poster.jpg image.

Now I have a poster image showing for Season 2.

Is all of this normal behaviour?

Thanks

Best way I do is download image I want manually and just reload TV information.

This was my question also a few posts back, but no confirmation either way

Does Artwork Downloader download and save locally, Season Poster, Season Banner and/or Season Thumb??

@Martijn.

I know your busy with Kodi, but are you able to indicate either way on the above questions please.

Hi

Does reloading the TV Show not make it reappear as newly added episodes again in the library?
Presume reloading doesn't affect watched / un-watched status of the episodes?

Thanks

Should keep all same, but I use trakt for watched status. Just go to season hit I reload from Internet or local.

Hi

Reloading the TV Show as you suggested works. TheTVDB scraper then finds and displays the missing season poster(s).

Reloading doesn't affect the watched / un-watched status nor does it make the episodes re-appear as recently added again.

I think there are two problems here, AD not downloading season posters in solo mode is one problem.
The other is that for some reason when a new season is added to the file server TheTVDB scraper when it adds these new files does not get a season poster, either because there was no season poster available at that time or more likely because there is some problem with it.

Thanks

EDIT:

Reloading the TV Show does affect the artwork however, after reloading the artwork is no longer visible. I have to run AD in solo mode against the TV Show to get the artwork back again. So not ideal.
