Since a few days I own a MiniX X8-H Plus. Great device. As I'm all new to XBMC it took me some time to figure out how it works. But step by step I managed to get XBMC to work like I would like it to work. This was also including the artwork so all the movies and tvseries (using the addon 'Artwork downloader') had a desciption including the belonging pictures of the covers, wallpapers, disc-images, etc.
But then I had to reïnstall everything because I had messed up rooting the X8-H Plus and therefore I used the burn tool to make a clean install of Android, including XBMC. And after that I just can't get the artwork to work again. The only thing I get to see is the written information about the movies. But it gets more strange.
The day before yesterday I was trying to get the Artwork back, but without any result. I went to bed and yesterday afternoon I wanted to try again to get the artwork back. But suddenly there was some artwork. But not with every movie, only a few, and it took a few seconds to build up the artwork, so the background seemed to load slowly, etc, but it was there for a few movies. I decided to turn off the MiniX, put it back on again, and gone was all the artwork again, except for the dicsimages, they were suddenly there, but that was the only part of the artwork that was there, but it looked a bit strange (see the attatched image at the bottom of this post)
The strange thing is that the artwork has always been there for the tv series, except for one series, that one is also gone.
At this time I'm getting quite frustrated on how to get the artwork back. I'm trying to figure this out for 3 days now. Here are some things I've already tried on my own.
- Reïnstall XBMC
- Tried the adapted version (extended cache memory, etc) found here on the minix forums)
- Used several settings within Artwork downloader (use or not use local information, enable and disbale limit artwork)
- Ran Artwork downloader several times
- Deleted all the artwork stored on my external HD manually on my computer for a fresh start
- Tried the youtube solution, but the file that should be removed is not even on my system.
- Googled my ass of to find a solution
- Tried different themes
I really hope somebody has a solution for me. It worked before. To me it looks like I did nothing different compared to what I did before, but I just can't get the artwork to work properly
What I did notice is that artwork downloader does seem to download images like "folder.jpg" but in the end they cannot be found wihtin the maps with files.
When looking at the report of Artwork downloader it looks like it cannot find many things:
- clearart not found
- banner not found
- clearlogo not found
- landscape not found
But the report also says it has downloaded
61 posters (I also have 61 movies, so that seems to match)
But why don't I see all these downloaded images? Where are they stored? Not in the same map as the movies?
