It has annoyed me in couple of recent versions for Apple TV, when entering TV episodes folders, it starts refreshing every episodes metadata: poster, description etc even these info are already downloaded/cached, especially after I change metadata language to Chinese/Japanese/Korean and go to tv episodes folders, Infuse will download new language metadata… when i change back to English, it will download English version.
Not having the covers disapearing, but they certainly change as described above. The problem is as stated that metadata keeps being refreshed. So the trick of changing language and download metadata and then change language back doesn’t work anymore. I agree, it’s extremely frustrating. Can’t pinpoint when this happened but guessing 1 1/2-2 months back.
And yes. I also deleted all metadata and rebuild a bit back when art was messed up. For weeks now, every time I start up infuse I get the same message with same number of files. Unless I’ve added new files, in which case it adds them and then goes back to updates 234 files.
Is it only fetching artwork or is it getting everything else each time? It almost sounds like a TV series with that many episodes is hosed up on TVDB and not sending the artwork. After it completes the scan have you looked through your library and checked for missing artwork?
Sorry. I’ve been away. So I think I figured it out. Not sure if this is something that needs to be fixed (James?) or it’s whats supposed to happen. I figured out what folder has 234 files. Awhile ago Apple had a great deal on the Friends boxset. I had downloaded it and dropped it in my TV folder as a backup in case it ever leaves itunes. I don’t know what changed (Because I had bought the series quite awhile ago), it only started happening long after I had bought the series and put it in my TV folder and Infuse never had a problem. I ended up dropping a .nomedia file in the folder and it’s no longer happening.
