    When you view the actor playlists in the Mezzmo application or in the web interface the actor backdrops are used.

    Mezzmo Android: Install it on your tablet, smartphone, Android TV or Amazon Fire to browse and stream files from your Mezzmo library to all your devices. Full details at http://www.conceiva.com/products/mez...mo_android.asp
    Mezzmo for Kodi Add-on: Install it into Kodi to stream files from your Mezzmo library directly in Kodi. Full details at http://www.mezzmo.com/wiki/doku.php?...odi_user_guide
    Mezzmo for Roku App: Install it onto your Roku to stream files from your Mezzmo library. Full details at http://www.mezzmo.com/wiki/doku.php?...oku_user_guide

    Thanks Peter. So if the actor and director active playlists are deleted, the actor and director backdrops won't be created, correct ?

The addon matches on three pieces of information for TV show uniqueness: the series name, the season and the episode. That's how it tells the episodes apart. So if you have a TV series and there are two episodes that have the the season and episode both at 0 the addon will only insert the first one it sees in the episodes table into the Kodi DB and mark the other as a duplicate. This limitation does not exist in the movies table because the matching there is by name. The easy solution is increment the episode number to distinguish them, which would also work in the original method. I'll look to see how difficult it would be to add a fourth match to episodes (name) but I suspect that will be a bit of work and could mess up some other parsing logic.

    I took a look at this and while adding a 4th element (episode name) to the episode decision process isn't a huge amount of work, it will break a core feature of the addon, duplicate detection. This is because a number of PVRs and OTA recorders write a date/time stamp into the name. Thus you could have numerous season and episode matches but the name would be different due to the PVR/OTA timestamp. If I added the episode name as part of the dupe detection the addon would never detect them due to the name differences. Part of the goal of the addon is to help you manage your Mezzmo library and this would break that.

    So v2.1.5.3 of the addon allows season 0 but not season 0 with episode 0. The 2.1.5.4a test version, when set to category, will allow for season 0 episode 0 but only one per series.

    I am following your discussion, but I am not sure if this version is ready yet.
    Should I better wait a bit more before trying?

    I will anyway not have access to my TV Box for a few days, so I can't do any proper testing anyway soon.
    Maybe I should check after that?

    It's ready for testing.. Here's the logic for the setting writing to the episode table in the Kodi DB:

    Season: Allows season 0 but not season 0 with episode 0. You can have season 0 episode 1 and higher. Season 0, Episode 0 titles will be written to the movies table.
    Category: Allows for season 0 episode 0 but only one per series if Category is TV Show. Additional season 0 episode 0 titles for a given series will be marked as a duplicate and not written to the Kodi DB.

    In either case a season 0 episode 1 and higher will be written to the episode table like all other episodes (if the Category is set for TV Show when setting is Category).

    Oh, now I get it.
    It is a Kodi plugin. I thought it is a completely different Server now.

    I just wanted to try it, setting up my Server, but then I saw it's the Kodi client.
    At the moment I can't test my TV Box, but as soon as it's possible I will test it.

    So the Season 0 Episodes will now be put into their right Seasons?
    So if S00E01 is actually according to DVD order S02E04, will it be put there?

    Yes, but season 0 should have all along as long as the episodes weren't S00E00. The fix / new setting is in the addon for season 0 episode 0 handling. Where are you seeing them in the wrong location in the Mezzo GUI, in the Kodi GUI or in the wrong Kodi DB table (i.e. Movie instead of TV episode) ?

    The Season 0 episodes just stayed in Season 0, both in Server and in Mezzmo on the Kodi client.
    Usually I am used to Kodi splitting the Season 0 and putting the individual episodes to the right Season, while at the same creating a "Specials" menu entry in the main menu of the Series (Season choosing screen)

    With Mezzmo this didn't happen in Kodi, but also not in the Mezzmo addon itself.
    On the Server it also didn't happen, but there I did not expect anyway.

    Ok. I understand. If you have all of your episodes in a single folder then this can happen if you sort on Mezzmo by release date since the specials were released for each season (at least for some that I have seen). If you sort by season/episode it will put season 0 first. The addon will simply follow the the sort sequence delivered by Mezzmo. If you have seasons of episodes in their own folders (i.e. \season 0 , \season 1 etc..) then you'll need to create a smart playlist for the series and sort it by release date. One thing I have found out is that TVDB isn't always accurate with the release dates but if you have them in your NFO files correctly you should be fine.
