Hi, wondered if anyone can help?

Not sure when it happened, sometime in the past few weeks, but nearly all of my movies are now being displayed in a Blu-ray case and have a Blu-ray icon and a 720 icon amongst the flags, rather than a DVD case/icon and the correct video format icon.

I don't have any Blu-ray movies and they are all showing the correct DVD icons within Ember Media Manager. I switched skins and this only seems to be in Transparency!

It is also only showing the wrong case when in library mode, if I go into file mode, the movies are in a DVD case.

It seems to have something to do with the width/height metadata it picks up from Ember Media Manager - the DVD case shows for movies that have a 480 flag in EMM, but for all movies that have 576 or above it will show the Blu-ray case/icon and a 720 icon

On further investigation, the Blu-ray icon and 720 icon are showing for all movies that have a 704 x 576 or 720 x 576 video format.

Any idea how this can be corrected?

Many thanks

resolution information is not available in filemode, so T! will always show a dvd case there.

i just did a fresh library scan and indeed i'm having the same issue as you're having now.

i seem to remember the resolution detection code in xbmc recently changed, so maybe they messed things up a bit?

must be this change:
http://xbmc.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/x...hrev=30833

xbmc now considers both with & height when determining the resolution.
feel free to create a ticket on trac if you think the current behavior is incorrect.

Thanks for your help with this Ronie, I've logged a ticket as suggested.

I had to revert to an older revision (r30813) due to another problem (dvr-ms files not playing audio) and the DVD cases/icons are back as before now.

Although, I have noticed they say 480 irrespective of their resolution, presumably they should say 576i, 576p, 720i, 720p etc... depending on the metadata. Hopefully, this will get resolved in a later revision.
