Home screen - thumbs vs posters issue

Post by mrmc-user » 08 May 2019, 15:04

Hello everyone,

I am looking for a confirmation of the issue below or an advice on what I might be doing wrong.

I use the latest version of MrMc on an Apple TV 4K box with latest tvOS and what I am seeing is that on the home screen, namely the Recently added section, movie thumbs are in place of where I think the posters should be showing - see the images below.

I am using Tiny Media Manager for scraping metadata and artwork off the internet and in MrMc I have just the Local metadata scraper enabled. I came to MrMc from Kodi (Confluence skin] where I had never encountered this issue.

The Recently Added section shows cropped movie thumbs where I believe the vertical posters should go.

The In Progress section shows thumb as expected/intended.

...and just for reference, here are the Tomb Raider movie folder contents as Tiny Media Manager creates them.

I have already looked through the settings and haven't found any option that would affect this behaviour.
I am not suggesting MrMc is broken but would like to ask whether there's something I am doing improperly,

Thank you in advance for your suggestions.

I can confirm this one. And it was also mentioned here. Ill also post in TestFlight.


What is happening ? If the tv-show folder only has a poster.jpg and fanart.jpg, skin Ariana Will use the poster.jpg as a thumbnail in the art section under thumbnail. You can see that in the art select view. Everything is okay now.

Tv-show Fanart view
If you introduce a thumb.jpg in the tv-show folder Ariana Will, after a series refresh show the thumb as a thumbnail in the art select view , but it Will also use the thumb.jpg as a wrong poster art in the eg fanart tv-show view.

Season episode view:
If you introduce a season01-thumb.jpg in the tv-show folder Ariana Will after a series refresh, show this thumb as a thumbnail in the art select view, and it Will also use it as art in the season list view. Which looks very Nice in in this section

So there is a bug/ unintended mistake in when Ariana uses a thumb.jpg as a Fanart poster if a thumb.jpg is present in the folder. On the tvshow fanart / poster view its unwanted, in the season view its nice, but not expected.
