These past few weeks have been most difficult with all the changes.
Many of us have literally hundreds of hours in organizing our collections.
Also most of the time the audio and video quality get better!
And I’m a Infuse Pro 4,5,and now 6 User!
From what I see its this big meta issue.
The latest issues…
The TV series Crusade (in the Babylon 5 world) has lost its cover art and information.
The series was fine for years and years but with latest updates its gone.
Episode is labeled
Crusade S01E01 and when you go to edit it comes up you see right away
you select crusade 1999 and nothing happens no meta.
Original Lost in space series has wrong season cover art. Worked fine for years as well until infuse updates
Season one is correct
Season two shows season three cover art
Season three shows season two cover art
The episodes are labeled correctly and have worked for years till these updates
Lost In Space S01E01 The reluctant Stowaway (whole season correct and cover art correct)
Lost in Space S02E01 Blast of Into Space (whole season cover art shows season three cover art not season two)
Lost In Space S03E01 Condemned of Space (whole season cover art shows season two cover art not season three)
It is my understanding that one can finally over ride tv cover art now. As in latest update is specifically shows tv cover art override.
How is this literally done? Please do not email meta 101 link as that stuff doesnt work.
What is the new way to do? Literally to save the correct season cover art from the TVMDB site that you can grab and then save into tv folders.
Your help would be appreciated!
Thanks for all the other great updates!
Its really amazing to see progress from Infuse Pro 4 to Infuse pro6!

Folder artwork overriding for TV shows
Recently Added section for ‘Other’ Plex videos
Overriding movie cover art has been easy and works great
Transformers 2007 (is the move file)
Transformers 2007 (is the jpg file named exactly like the movie)
Doing this overrides the movie cover art and i can choose from the TVMDB and save as jpg file.
Favorite folders artwork was easy with a favorite-atv of my favorite image from TVMDB put into the main page favorites folders.
I have all my TV series on NAS units and they have worked great no issues either.
Now if i can just be given the chance to override TV cover art would be amazing.
It is shown in your latest update but i do not know how to do.
under the section " Overriding TV series, season, and episode artwork" you’ll see the naming structures.
What you’ll do is first download the poster you want for season 3 and name it
“season 03-poster.jpg” or if you have your season folders labeled as just Season 3 then it’d be “season 3-poster.jpg” once you’ve done that then you drop that into your series folder and then do an edit metadata on one of the episodes.
One other thing, check your season 3 folder of Lost In Space and make sure you don’t have even a single season 2 episode in there. That can cause problems with artwork too. Don’t ask how I found that out. LOL
I think I see the problem with why you’re having problems setting the season poster. It looks like you have your shows in folders like “Lost In Space Season 01” etc. You need to have a little different structure like thisl.
“Danger Danger Will Robinson! You have the File Structure Wrong!” LOL!
Made Change Works! All these years! I had No Idea!
OK OK Next question! If I may?
In my TV Drive 12 Folder I used to have all the TV seasons shown.
Now with new way you taught me it just shows the TV series cover art and then you have to select that and then shows all the seasons of that series.
Also I have season 1 and 2 of the 2018 lost in space so how do i do that?
Meaning and bare with me I have the original Lost in space series labled lost in space with season 1-3 in it like you just taught me.
Hi and welcome…
Have you tried saving the image you want to use and naming it folder.jpeg and putting that in the master folder with all the seasons in?
Works for me.
As for the meta problems it down to the fact there’s no local storage built into the app for images and the reliance on 2 databases so as has happened when TMDB/TVDB change anything it will change our builds, hopefully an update soon will sort this.
I’m almost done on edit of my TV Drive 6 folder after learning correct procedure. Also a a note my Blu Ray & DVD box sets look and sound amazing! The only thing left i have as everything else is perfect is the tv series Viper (TVDB Viper link attached). Under the special features section it looks like it needs to be updated.
