There is no way without the scraper being changed so that it scrapes as movies instead of TV shows as individual episodes can't have their own poster.

That's why I've been putting a big emphasis on making sure each PPV has a good thumb as I believe that's the only artwork the scraper uses ATM.

Peter hasn't been very active since the release of the scraper.

Youll have to explain that a little more as I an unfamiliar with NHL as a sport.

You can add any event you wish as long as its based on 2 teams that exist in the database. I'm guessing things like allstar are not proper teams though?

Correct. All Star teams are a mix of players based on the division. http://www.nhl.com/ice/m_news.htm?id=796221. Man next time I am in your area. Going to a game. You have a local team.

Hi All

I posted this on the Sports DB Forms:

First issue the season does not have an Season Poster - Could this get added at some stage.
Second issue - The shows are named YEARxEP my personal preference is that there should be a way to change this to something else S2015E08 keeps this the same naming like TV Shows.
3rd Issue - The backdrops should be based on the Show I.E Battleground.

These are things i am finding but there might be site reason for this. If i can help in anyway please let me know.

So is there an way to make changes my side that does not effect everyone.

Also 10/10 for getting this to work.

Thanks

This should work:

Code:
English Premier League \Season 1516\English Premier League 2016-02-28 Newcastle vs Man City.mkv

Have not tested it though.

that's what I thought, however when I run the scraper using that exact folder structure and a file with that name I get this result

Do you accept Python scrapers of any form? I have some video add-ons which I could convert.
