Hi guys, first off, thanks for the great work on the best media centre out there.

For the past several days, experienced major issues with XBMC 12.3/Aeon Nox in that all the TV shows that has multiple seasons, the first season disappeared. Uninstalling/re-installing failed to clear the problem so popped over to XMBC & before I hit the forums, noticed updates.

I have installed XBMC 13.1 Beta 2 & nice. Installed Aeon Nox but didn't like it (loved the infowall on previous version) I like Confluence but find the icons too large compared to other skins, I've installed several but really do like Neon - it's superb.

However, I have a small niggling issue.

With numerous film posters not being the ones I want to match my DVD's, I use a folder containing the images for those films in a dedicated folder just for XMBC. I have 2 that no matter what I try, they do not show up in the main movies page. On selecting the movie information for either one & clicking on Choose Art, the correct poster shows up under Current Art (Others display with no problem).

Switching to other skins this issue disappears.

Is it an issue with XMBC/Neon or the images themselves on my system?

System Details
Windows 7 Pro(32)
AMD 8 core
4gb ram

Do you use artwork downloader with local artwork?

Also, is it just on a specific view? If you change the view from the sideblade, does the issue follow the movie?

No, not using artwork downloader. Yes just a specific view, all other views show up correctly. Also, have now found that of the 17 TV shows that I use local artwork for, 8 correctly shows, but the remaining 9 do not. Have checked via other skins, no issues whatsoever.

Could it be something simple I'm missing?

Forgot to mention that I'm using Neon 3.0.5

It is most likely just a skinning bug we didn't notice. Please tell us which view has the issue and we'll check if we can reproduce (and fix) it.

Sorry Kib, I normally only use the thumbnails view. However on checking with all other views, have the same issue. Going through the views one at a time, right clicked the movie & selected movie information. Each time on selecting choose art, the correct poster/cover shows but does not show up on the views.

As others have loaded correctly from my local folder, both Movies & TV Shows, could it possibly be an issue with the images themselves?

I guess its possible. It just seems odd that other skins do not display the same issue. That's what is making us lean towards a bug in Neon.

Well I'm a local system builder & hardware is more my line. You guys that do software, all kudos to you as it makes my job easier working with excellent software. If it is a bug, why did 7 posters/covers work but others did not? As for the TV Shows none of the local files work.

As soon as I get time, I will work on the covers by checking the others that did work against those that did not. I'll let you know the outcome.

Please share the info with us, filenames and some screenshots would help.

The filenames are just the names(or a shortened version) of the TV Show/Movie in jpeg format. I did try creating new scans & saving as png files, but they failed to load as well.

I hope the links work.

The first shows a screenshot showing the missing cover/poster.

The second shows the cover available when choosing art.

Found a solution to the movie side by updating the info on TMDB (only 3 films), they should update within 48 hours. As for the TV Shows, backed up the folder then deleted.

Rescanned all the relevant images & created a new folder naming it XBMC instead of Movie Posters. Getting the same issue. Neon accepted 7 of those but the same remaining nine will not show up in any view.

Example:

Spearhead.jpg (for the British TV Military series Spearhead)

And under Aeon Nox...

Ok, I've attempted to fix the issue with: https://github.com/kibje/skin.neon/pull/64

I only changed the Thumbnail view at this point, until it can be verified that this fixes the problem (I am unable to duplicate the issue on my system). Please make sure this view is selected once the changes are merged and you are testing.

Will Neon update those changes automatically? For two of the movies, one has updated with the second within the next 48 hours. I haven't added the third to the movie database as yet. Will continue testing with the TV shows as at the moment, the same nine are not showing up.

Yeah, once it goes through Kib's review and then the changes are bundled up into a new rev. It may take a while.

If you are feeling adventurous you can make the changes yourself based on: https://github.com/kibje/skin.neon/pull/64/files
