I hard quite and reloaded previous addon version, reset and updated everything and it took less then a minute.. so something to keep in mind if you have a ton of TV shows like I do. I don't know if it was just bad luck at the time or what but just FYI. It may be possible that some of the things for some existing fields in the guide were changed with the new update I believe as some things don't show up anymore (like previous episode etc..)
EDIT: Also as I mentioned before, when you manually add artwork with artwork downloader, it simply displays the word 'true'
In addition to the above issues, Ive noticed that some movies seem to lose the subtitle and language flag display, after you watch them. The odd thing is it only seems to be a few languages, like Russian for example, any movie I have that is in Russian with English subs.. displays the flag images normally in movie info.. until I play them.. then for some strange reason, they disappear never to return again unless I refresh the movie.. yet this is never the case for example an english movie that also has subs.. its always fine, strange I know but true non the less.
Another observation, some foreign language films will display everything correctly, but after you play them, the main language changes to English and the subs change to N/A (In the case of a Portuguese movie I have) Or the sub language moves to language and the sub language vanishes.. not sure which one happens.. again strange I know.. Note that no changes were made that could affect this (I no longer use my little mod I made to show non defined movie languages as English) So not sure what is going on.. I'll keep looking to see if I can figure this out..
OK on further looking, I believe that it "could" possibly a Kodi thing? And not that it is a error, but possibly what may be happening is Kodi, once you play a movie, Kodi detects the actual real info (from the actual file itself) and changes/overwrites the info.. for example.. sometimes when I scrap a movie, the length of the movie is not scraped, but I can hit play for a second and stop.. and the correct length will be displayed as Kodi figures it out..
Could it be possible that if the subtitles or language is not correctly entered into the file you are playing, as in ripped with correct accurate info.. Kodi will see that and even if the correct info (or missing info) is entered.. Kodi will display that.. for example.. if the ripped movie you watch was not fully encoded with the correct language and subtitles placed into the file,
kodi will not see that and instead go by what it actually see's? That's my guess on whats happening with the whole language thing.. what do you guys think? it should be really easy to test out.. using 17.4...
EDIT: To be clear.. if the encode of the movie does not specifically have the correct info entered into it at the time it was encoded.. as in the encoder specifically entered the language, language of subtitles etc.. Kodi will not see it and change it accordingly (AKA to none.. as it was not entered) and that what Kodi sees in the file overwrites any info you add.. just wondering.. as many movies I have.. have the correct info added to the .nfo file, but it gets overwritten as soon as I play the movie.. even if its playing it for a second. Of course this is all a guess and it could be something else entirely.
