Lock NFO File After tMM Generates It?

I have recently gone through and updated my Studio Logos textures.xbt file - but my skin only displays a studio image if there is ONE <studio>Red Granite Productions</studio> line item.

I know that there is no setting in tMM at the moment to limit the number of studios, but even if there was, it probably wouldn't be viable: tMM might not keep the studio that I want it to keep. I'm not interested in the distributor - it's primarily going to be either 20th Century Fox, Universal Pictures, Walt Disney Pictures, or Lionsgate (or A24, The Orchard, Oscilloscope). Either way, I'm, when possible, going for the primary production studio.

Problem: Somehow, during the process of adding new items to my collection, or at some other time that I cannot pinpoint, all of my primary environment's NFO files keep regenerating. (I've removed all but one studio.)

  • I always make a backup of my manually edited NFO files to another directory immediately for this reason.
  • I have spent ~an hour dragging and dropping my backup NFO files into the individual movie directories on at least three separate occasions. Maybe there's one action I'm taking that is causing the entire issue.
Add'l info that may be helpful for a diagnosis:
  • I've set Kodi to use Local Information Only for the Movies source.
  • Maybe I should be using "Find Missing Movies" instead of "Update Data Sources?" Or maybe I'm way off. (This is the way I always added items prior to the desire to add studio images.)
  • I've made sure to right-click individual line-items, choosing "search and scrape the selected movie(s)" that I want to scrape (typically after adding a new film).
Here is a log from Friday 2/9/18 when I was doing all kinds of things with the library: https://pastebin.com/Uq0TYy8X

I appreciate any feedback. Thanks!
