API for fanArt with LiveTV

Basically I'm wondering whether it would be possible to implement it so that the fanArt from Schedules Direct would be shown in the back. Similar way to what library items already operate, but with TheTVDB.

Sorry, I'm still confused.  It sounds like you are asking for a feature within the system as opposed to an API call for you to develop something.  If that's the case, we are working towards unifying a lot of this data but it isn't all there yet.

Ok, that might be right. How does EmbyTV (the built-in) handle it. Is there fanArt shown with LiveTV section? I currently see it like this with NPVR: http://imgur.com/DQ39By1

As you can see, there is no fanArt to be shown in the back.

No, not yet.  It shouldn't be specific to the provider once we are able to tie this all together.

 

 

 

What Luke is trying to tell you is that the fetching of metadata for those items is completely independent of whatever TV provider is used.  Once those items are in the library - as long as we have enough information to identify it properly - the internet metadata providers can be used to fill in the data.

 

The key is that part in italics.   NextPVR or MP or whatever needs to be providing enough information about the item for us to be able to tie it to something on one of the data providers.

 

This is currently working for movies and is still to be done for TV.

 

 

Ok. Is this part of that process too? It's from this topic: http://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/24634-emby-w-hdhomerun-wschedules-direct-picture-request/

Direct Schedules Direct integration with PVR Plugins would be also cool feature to have.  ;)

Ok. Thanks for answering.  Is it ok to ask when this would be done? I'm keen on using that feature. :)
