  1. Hi everybody! I added a lot of movies to my Library this morning and few hours later noticed they weren't displaying correctly in the player. The names were the filenames and the posters were screenshots. When I looked at the folders, there was an nfo file and a poster.jpg but they were wrong - the nfo was generic and the poster was a screenshot. Turns out some changes to the network had caused Emby to lose its ability to connect to the internet, so when it tried to download the metadata it could not. I fixed the networking and Emby could again connect to the internet. I did a Library Scan. I did a metadata refresh (tried both 'missing' and 'replace all'). The affected movies metadata got updated, mostly. All the metadata was there now, including banners and logos etc, however the posters were still the screenshots that it created earlier. So... I did a dumb thing... because I had added so many movies, I decided it would be much easier to just delete ALL posters and run the metadata refresh for 'missing' metadata. That didn't work. I then tried replace all metadata, including images, but that didn't work. I added some more movies to the Library and the metadata including posters came down correctly. All previous movies still don't have posters. I ran the library scan and metadata refreshes a few more times and now I've given up. I can't see what is wrong or how to fix my mistake. My settings are Metadata - Settings: All 3 boxes are ticked here, preferred language is English and location is Australia Metadata - Services - Movies: Every tick-box on this page is ticked, including all the 'Fetch Images' ticks. Library - Display: Every tick-box on this page is ticked. Library - Advanced: No custom metadata path, no tick for hiding images P.S: When the metadata manager says it queues a refresh, is there any way to see this queue or get a progress indication? Thank you.
