This is such a stretch, but I'm gonna ask anyway: can it do the opposite, as in, detect that an <update></update> tag is present, and then update those? This would only really be useful if there was a way to automate the removal of this tag after updating though.

A refresh will be triggered if a configured field (such as mpaa, or plot) is not populated in the media library database.

The script has no idea if the NFO contains an mpaa or plot tag, or even if an NFO exists - it will simply refresh the movie if the movie (as it exists in the media library) fails QA (Quality Assurance). By refreshing the movie, the hope is that any NFO file that may exist will include the missing fields, or the relevant information will be scraped from the internet.

Adding an <update> tag to the NFO will have no effect as the script doesn't look at the contents of the NFO.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Kodi (Video)\portable_data\userdata>texturecache.py jd mo
vies Teorema
    "art": {
      "thumb": "image://[email protected]:\\Media\\Video\\Single\\Teorema\\Teorema.mkv/"
    "file": "M:\\Media\\Video\\Single\\Teorema\\Teorema.mkv",
    "label": "Teorema",
    "movieid": 593,
    "title": "Teorema"

I tried with the DVD/Blu-ray ones, but they don't seem to be recognized (so probably they never updated to begin with... bug?)

There's no phyisical local thumbnail by the way. All the files each folder has is the video, the .nfo, and the poster.jpg. Not sure what a remote poster is, but I don't think it applies (sounds like it's for people who have Kodi or the videos separated on a different hardware/network, while I run both videos and Kodi from the same computer).

A "remote poster" is a poster image (artwork) scraped from fanart tv, imdb or similar web site, assuming the scraper supports such sites.

The scraper you are using is extracting a video screen grab from the video, presumably because it can't find a suitable poster file (remote, or local).

I suggest you contact the scraper maintainer for support on why the scraper is not finding and using the local poster.jpg artwork.
