On my ATV2 I've noticed a lot of thumbnail related errors, but I'm not sure of the cause.

I'm running path substitution for my Thumbnails, pointing to my QNAP server. Using SQL and Path substitution all of my media shows up fine and plays well. But I have noticed if I do a library update from the ATV2 no posters or thumbnails show up after the scan.

Performing the update from my MBP which has the thumbnails folder symlinked to the QNAP thumbnails, everything scrapes fine. (I use media companion to scrape and rename my media prior to XBMC library update).

Log File: Log

A snippet:

Check if that thumnails folder is shared with write access for this user and that the filesystem permissions are sane for every subfolder in there.

Everything appears fine there Memphiz, read write access for every subfolder / file.

I'll investigate more when I can, away for the weekend.

Had a bit of time before I head up the coast, so I've checked all permissions, correct user has read / write, reset recursively, restarted XBMC on the ATV2 many times, but still the same errors persist.

Any other ideas on where to look? I'm only away for a couple of days.

When I get home I'm going to have a go at setting up NFS across my whole network, I think the QNAP gets better read write that way anyway.

Two questions:

What's the issue with AFP?

Know some good reference material to get my head around permissions?

Looking for some knowledge, not just easy answers here.

Thanks Memphiz.

Sorry Memphiz, I actually meant some technical documentation. It's interesting to learn.

The open source library we use for AFP is full of bugs and was abandoned. It did bad touch on Memphiz.

You can make easy links to the XBMC wiki using double brackets around common XBMC words: [[debug log]] = debug log, [[Video library]] = Video library, [[SMB]] = SMB , [[userdata]] = userdata, etc

Okay, thanks Ned. I guess it's on Git, I'll go have a look.
