[OLD/CLOSED] PseudoTV Live - Set-Top box solution

hewligun: Local movies and TV should show fanart. If you're missing fanart in PTVL for media in your library, make sure you have PTVL's default image files (i.e. poster.jpg, landscape.jpg, and logo.png) for the file you're trying to play. File names like MovieTitle-poster.jpg won't register with PTVL. Also, install and run the Artwork Downloader addon for XBMC. Once installed, it should be under Programs. Tell it to download tv/movie posters, fanart, landscapes, thumbs, clearart, and logos. Once it runs go back to PTVL and you should see the artwork displayed. It is required that you enable "local" artwork in Artwork Downloader's settings.

For Enhanced LiveTV, TVDB/TMDB API supplies Episode/Movie information (episode names, Season numbers, Movie plot, etc). Fanart.TV api supplies artwork.

Doing that should get you some artwork... but I'm just not getting the right artwork. For instance, Dark Knight Rises shows art for 300 (which isn't before or after Dark Knight on that channel). When I press the right-arrow once, the description is blank but it shows the correct poster. In my Movie Library, Dark Knight and 300 both have their correct artwork.

Not sure if this bug would be in a log, but I can provide one if need be. Anyone else having this issue?

UPDATE: was able to fix the mismatched posters by putting each movie file in its own folder. Then cleared my library, imported it again, and then used Artwork Downloader as described above. Then poured some scotch. Cheers!
