20 Nov 2019 - TVDB Scraper v3.2.0 is now available which reinstates scraping. TVDB are still in the process of fixing a number of bugs so there may still be further breakages. See this post. 2901570 (post)

Do you have season folders for the episodes so that it's possible to save different images for the tv show itself and the epsiodes? Or do you only want images for tv show actors?

I think one "confusing" thing for the user is that Ember sometimes in the main window not show the images that is really saved in the tv show, episode ore movie folder. I try to explain that:
Ember and also Kodi has only one database entry per person. In this entry the URL of the scraped image is stored, also a path to the image on your disk to show it in the main screen without searching for a local image or download it again.
If you (re)scrape a tv show or a movie, the images will be downloaded from the scraper and the latest URL and local path will be stored in the database. Now if you scrape another movie or tv show with the same actor, for this show or movie the image will also be downloaded from to scraper, but the URL and also the local path will be changed in the database. So that means if you again show the first scraped tv show, the image of the movie will be displayed, even the image in the tv show folder is another.
To prevent an overwriting of tv show images with movie images, the already saved images in the tv show folder be readed and resaved if you edit a tv show. Same for movies. But the image in the main view still can be the wrong one.

I hope you understand what I want to say, but it's a little bit difficult for me in english.
