Scraper renaming files
#1
I may not understand how the scraper works but how do I stop it from renaming content ?

Go to files and to the folder with the TV show.
Set content
contains tv shows
settings > keep original title
yes to refresh
I use: name - 1x01 - title
After refresh the name is gone, why ?
And in videos I get "tv shows" added but I don't want that

In movies it is even worse as it changes names to something else
Especially with names in a foreign language (mixed)
And aomething like Beverly hills cop 1, Beverly hills cop 2, Beverly hills cop 3
gets changed into Beverly hills cop 4, Beverly hills cop 4, Beverly hills cop 4
In settings I ticked keep original title

All I want is some simple artwork. No changes of names and no extra folders (movies, tv shows)
Is there a wiay to get a simple scraper for kodi ?

Scrapers do not rename files. Whatever Kodi skin you are using, the default that is displayed is the TVshow name and/or Epside name and number.

Add the year to the movie name, the scraper will get less confused.

Staying in the Files section after you have scraped your media files is not recommended.
You see the sources that you have added. It is the way that Kodi works.

Well all I do is set the content as "tv shows" and the file names change.
I don't understand how that could the the skin (confluence for me)

Anyway is the also a dumb scraper just for artwork and nothing else ?

Disable 'Replace file names with library titles' if you still want to see the file name in files mode.

If you don't want all the metadata scraped simply add your own poster.jpg and fanart.jpg images and carry on using files mode.

Thx that is exactly what I was looking for Smile
Much better like this

Last request
In skin settings > home window I'm hiding movies and tv shows 
This works for the home screen

But now with the scraper I get movies and tv shows back in video on the homescreen
In video's I just want files. I there any way to hide movies and tv shows there ?

Edit
looks I can delete them from userdata\library\video on my Windows test system
But on my main device with CoreElec that folder seems empty
