[RELEASE] Texture Cache Maintenance utility
qax will simply identify and remove those media items that fail various quality checks, and then have XBMC reload the items, this time with hopefully more complete information (now that artwork is present either locally or on a remote server, or NFO files/metadata sources have more complete information).

If XBMC is re-reading an incomplete NFO then nothing will change - you need to update the NFO first with the missing information before having XBMC re-scrape it.

In this case Sickbeard is the source of the problem as it sometimes fails to download the plot. Grep'ing your NFOs to identify those that have empty plot elements isn't difficult, but automating Sickbeard to rescan a tvshow so that the NFO can be regenerated with a plot is trickier.

If you want to delete your plot-less NFOs as a solution for missing plots (and become dependent on web sites again, which is the whole point of using NFOs) that's your choice, you can use qa to identify the episodes with metadata problems, manually delete the NFOs then run qax to rescrape the episodes sourcing metadata from the internet but texturecache.py has no direct access to the underlying media files so having it delete the NFO files is impossible (and not IMHO the right solution anyway).

What I do is run qa to identify the episodes with missing plots, manually delete the NFOs, rescan/update the tvshow(s) in Sickbeard to regenerate the NFOs (hopefully with plot), then run qax.
