[RELEASE] Texture Cache Maintenance utility

I'm not entirely sure what the problem is.

If your media library has banner artwork in place of posters then there's not much texturecache.py can do to fix that - whatever metadata scraper you used to scrape your library has done a poor job and you'll need to fix your media library before you will be able to cache the correct artwork.

If your media library contains references to the correct artwork (posters) then its difficult to understand how this could be cached incorrectly (as banners).

You can view the artwork for a tvshow with
Code:
./texturecache.py jd tvshows <showname>

and see what banners or posters are in use.

More likely though it's a skin problem of some sort, with banners being displayed with the incorrect aspect ratio. Or you are missing posters from your media library so banners are used instead - you'll need to use something like the Artwork Downloader addon to try and fill in any missing artwork. Or use local artwork and re-scrape.

though it takes a while so has not finished running through yet

If you just want to re-cache the artwork just for tvshows:
Code:
./texturecache.py C tvshows

Try a different power supply, that shouldn't happen (the freezing). Or try a more recent build of whatever distribution you're running.
