I’ve been searching, and testing, and playing around with this for long enough now that I’m going to lose my mind.
I have an ATV4. I use the latest Infuse. I use a Synology NAS. I connect to it using SMB.
The problem that I have is that for TV Shows I prefer the look of ‘other’ artwork than the ones that may be found on TheTVDB.
I am using the below method (with Lost as an example show).
TV Shows >
Season 1 >
Season 2 >
I have located a folder art that I prefer for Lost. The artwork is named ‘folder.jpg’ for the show. I place this in the root of folder ‘Lost’.
I have also located folder art for the seasons that I prefer. The season artwork is named ‘folder.jpg’ and I place these in the root of each ‘Season’ folder.
I then delete all the metadata in Infuse to start again. I notice that upon the initial search my new artwork appears at both Show and Season level. However once the ‘scan’ is complete for this show Infuse overrides my artwork for the ones available on TheTVDB. Which for some shows is not consistent and not always great cover artwork.
This used to work 100% for sure on previous versions of Infuse but it no longer seems to and it’s driving me mad.
Has anybody had any success getting this to work???
And for the love of god JAMES please do not tell me to use ‘Library’ mode for TV Shows because I don’t want to due to it not putting shows in the correct places. I much prefer to utilize my own file structure.
Please can you look into this and submit a change if required or tell me how to make it use the folder artwork that I put there in the TV Shows, when using SMB and not Library mode. I’ll ask that you please do not point me to the ‘Metadata 101’ thread as I’ve literally tried everything in that thread.
Annoyingly it works fine for Movies - just not TV Shows.
Somebody PLEASE help me solve this.
