this is most likely the case with dvd's and .iso files, it will show the new case.

since no resolution info is available, the skin can't determine if it's a dvd or bluray.

previously, the skin would just show the dvd case in these cases,
which wasn't quite accurate either.

i see three options to go from here:
- use a mediamanger to create .nfo files (they will work fine with dvd's)
- play a few seconds of the movie...xbmc will detect the resolution now.
- i could revert my changes and get back to they way things were.

Ronnie, you misunderstand me.

This happens with ALL the movies in my collection with a 540 resolution, and only movies with a 540 resolution, these are all .avi's too. XBMC shows the information perfectly so this is all in the database (resolution, aspect ratio, audio, everything). The movies play perfectly and even after playing the entire movie it still has a green cover.

EDIT: I agree with liquidolze, please dont revert... I can live with this issue, just thought I would point it out as it is possible a bug

Can this collection-cover be optional? As 5 of my 110 dvdr-movies shows correct dvd-cover, the rest show that gold-one.

kind regards

Hi,

does anyone know how to define certain fanarts for moviesetsConfused

Found out that I can switch the movie-set cover but not how to change the set-fanart.

Please forgive me, maybe I´m stupid but why is this not possible?
Somewhere must be defined that there should be shown a picture, so there has to be a path which tells xbmc where to get a fanart for every movie-set.
Please apologize my wrotten english....

I dont understand... is the shown fanart chosen ramdomlyConfused But then there has to be somewhere a syntax that tells xbmc to do so, or am I wrong??

Kind regards

Oliver

ps.: You´re doing an amazing job on T! & PaperStreet..

it's not a skin issue. fanart for movie sets is just not implemented in xbmc.
