I am using v1.5.6 on openelec nightlies. Any thoughts on where I should look to solve this?

Thanks.

I found a possible cause of this on another thread - Amber seems to use Poster art where as Quartz and Confluence use Thumbs for shelf images. I did a full download all missing artwork and images now appear on the shelf. Not sure why my system doesnt download poster art by default.

And final update - it was the metadata downloaded by sickbeard that confused the skin. If i deleted the sickbeard meta data and removed the show from library, then rescanned tv shows, the posters appear as they should. I'll just leave the sickbeard metadata turned off.

Yes that's because sickbeard meta is creating seasons data and xmbc scraper can't core with the seasons. . That's a very basic how I get it type of explanation. So any new show starting a new season is causing issues. M unless you can confirm this is effecting brand new shows you've added to xbmc that are on season 1? I couldn't be sure so if you confirm this is the case I'll look at turning off sb data too but I'm not sure if that is the cause.

Hi all

If I want to test Gotham on Raspberry Pi with Amber and PlexBMC connecting to the latest version of PMC, how do you propose I got about it?

Questions:
- Nightlies of RaspBMC or Openelec
- PlexBMC from Github? - and which branch?
- Amber Skin from Github - master branch?

And so on :-)[/align]

Use Amber from XBMC repository and PleXBMC from here http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=175995

Post your findings and speed comparison to XBMC library, that would be interesting to see.

My skins:

Amber
Quartz

I confirmed that this does occur for new shows on season 1 (episode 1) and works if I remove the show from my xbmc library, then remove the metadata from sickbeard and rescan eg I now have the poster appearing on the shelf. I'll do some further reading on the seasons posters to try and understand this a little more. I saw a few links in replies to your other thread so thanks for pointing that out.

I noticed this too when I updated the skin a while ago, it seems to be caused by an invalid text color being specified.

I've spent some time over the weekend making some changes to the PVR side of Amber (have some more planned) - current changes are here ; https://github.com/realroywalker/skin.amber

Note the missing EPG fix is here; https://github.com/realroywalker/skin.am...76121e0ed3
