Season banners are basic artwork in Kodi and handled like season posters and TV show fanart, so they could also be coming from a scraper or NFO file.

Artwork Beef added them, based on the artwork report. I see lines like
Processing tvshow 'American Horror Story'
Not missing artwork, not looking for any
Updated artwork: season.8.poster, season.8.banner

Running "AB: Add missing artwork" doesn't add anything

The .nfo files I use don't have any references to images at all. I remove them.

I'm now wondering if it is the scraper, when it adds a new show, or adds a new season to an existing show.

I'll keep an eye on it.

Sorry for the bother! Smile

Yup, probably from the scraper. Artwork Beef can "update" artwork for other reasons, in this case probably changing TheTVDB image URLs to match their new layout.

This is what Artwork Beef does, no option to change it.

Artwork Beef prefers local images first, and if none are available then it looks online. No option to change this.

Is the preloading supposed to work on the client's side, where there's no media stored? Cheers!
Yes, artwork preloading should work for artwork shared on a samba network. Artwork Beef must process a media item on each client to preload artwork on that client.

I'm experiencing the following and I after playing around with the settings and searching the forum I couldn't find an answer. Basically Artwork Beef is changing my already set fanart for both movies and TV shows whenever I do either a library update or on a weekly basis. Does somebody know how to stop this?
Changing artwork how? It generally shouldn't change existing artwork, but local artwork will always be assigned if it exists.
