The only reason I didn't ask ppic to look at music logo support was they run off different libraries and match against different databases from tv shows, so ppic would basically have to create something from scratch.
Whereas with gifties cdART manager it makes sense for the cdART manager to match against musicbrainz anyway (which is what fanart.tv matches against) for consistancy, so relatively little needed to be done to add logo support (the cdART manager also downloads multiple artist backgrounds and cd covers from fanart.tv).

When running the script for all my TV Shows it finishes and downloads 0 files. So I tried to download the logo for Afro Samurai only (via the Information menu of the TV Show). Here's the pastbin of the log http://pastebin.com/kQ5T7q7j

I seem to be having a little of trouble.
This started a month or so ago but certain TV Shows (such as Family Guy) do not include the poster art when selecting (i.e. from going from one TV Shows to another) but does show up when you bring up more information about the TV Show.
The art is included in the folders themselves (i.e /Family Guy/folder.jpeg) and work fine on every other skin I've tried.
- Reinstalling XBMC
- Using Nighlys
- Reinstalling Simplicity
- Re-scraping the information
Download an image to the TV folder and saving it as poster.jpeg works.
I think it's down to some of these images being scraped by XBMC itself and not LDS. I read that LDS wont look for images if they already exist. I assume that is exist within the database. Wouldn't it be better to only download only if they don't exist within the folder and not the database?
I believe this would fix my issue as well as make my media centre files look a bit cleaner.

depends the command used by the skin to launch the bulk download, pretty sure all art are doanloaded, but all of them have custom naming, none used as folder.jpg

Which is why i need this to be included hehe
Any info would be appreciated as I'm just sitting here waiting now.

i do wonder sometimes why the awesome functionality of tv logo script isn't provided by XBMC core.... the scraper framework would presumably need to be expanded i suppose.

What happens if I run this script and some of my drives are disconnected?
Will it only grab logos for the tv shows that the script can find?
Further, will it function like tvthemes, which it will still query a tv show, even if it can't find that tvshow (in other words, it is disconnected)?
