    Default Series.xml format ?

    Is there a way via the series.xml file to set the values for the poster and backdrop jpg files so that when Mezzmo discovers new episodes (saw a new season of an existing TV how) that the poster and backdrop will be consistent with the other previously discovered episodes ? The series.xml file works great for setting the proper series but various years sometimes come up with different poster and backdrop images forcing me to fix manually.

    You can set the metadata retrieval options to only use the series.xml and not get information from internet websites and this should provide consistent artwork based upon the series.xml

    Peter,

    Thanks. I suspected as much but can't find the XML format tags for the poster and backdrop metadata. Do you have a link or info for the proper series.xml tags ?

    Checking through the code I can see that series.xml is only used for text metadata, for poster and backdrop artwork you can name them folder.jpg and fanart.jpg and Mezzmo will find these and use them for the poster and backdrop.

    Peter,

    I think you meant poster.jpg and fanart.jpg. I used those two filenames and it worked perfectly.

    Interesting. When I tried folder.jpg it didn't work but poster.jpg did. I'll retest tomorrow.

    Peter,

    I reproduced the same behavior. When I used the folder.jpg and fanart.jpg naming convention the poster and backdrop pictures in all of the property tab episodes used the fanart.jpg picture for both. When I used the poster.jpg and fanart.jpg naming convention the poster pictures used the poster.jpg file and the backdrop pictures used the backdrop pictures used the fanart.jpg file for all episodes. Regardless it is working fine for me with the poster and fanart naming.
