Genre description is missing


Best Answer Luke , 29 January 2016 - 06:29 PM

you have to switch to thumb view using * or in settings because in poster view we can't put a title underneath the image

As the title says, under movies I no longer have descriptions for the genre's. If I open a genre the type is there but not on the main movie screen.

Unfortunately, a lot of things have taken place in a small amount of time so I cannot narrow down what the issue might be. 1st, I lost power a lot during the recent snow storm and at some point mb server(old name because I've been running it since then) crashed and wouldn't launch. Since I knew that emby server would be all new I downloaded and installed and restored from my backup. The roku app has also gone through some updates too. So I don't know if I'm missing a setting since my restore or if something has changed in the new app or server. Screen shot attached.

Server 3.0.5852.0
Roku 2.24

You can also press * and change the view style, this takes you to a sub-dialog. On that one choose, turn on pop up info. It may say its already enabled even though it isnt. The displaydescriptions default changes in the code (its a bug). Also why havent your genre images loaded in poster? Mine have and I even did a pure fresh install.

@Luke

 

screen.displayDescription = (firstOf(RegUserRead("tvDescription"), "1")).ToInt()

 

This is what should always be. The dialog preference has it this way.

 

Yet on some screens it has this:

screen.displayDescription = (firstOf(RegUserRead("tvDescription"), "0")).ToInt()

 

It defaults to 0 when there is no setting for it yet. To correct this you have to go through every screen and make sure it follows with the "1" being default. The default should be "info" pop up enabled.

 

Each screen ya know has its own registry setting for each user to control description. The default on all of these displaydescriptions should always be  "1" to enable.

So that solved it but now you brought up the point of my genre posters.  I didn't even realize until you said something.  Where does that come from server or should it just do it automatically? @Luke @speechles

They should come from here and look like these. It should be automatic.

I noticed that the new install of emby did not download them.  Pic of old vs new.  Most recent log and install log is attached if that helps.

I've copied over those images to the new install, rebooted server, removed emby channel from roku and re-added and still no go

Emby no longer uses that location (change about 6 months ago).  Look at Emby-Server-Metadata

Thanks @Happy2Play I copied into that folder and the genre images were restored. Now the question remains @Luke as to why they didn't make it there in the first place...

You'd have to find the server log from when they were refreshed for the first time.

@Luke in answer to the previous question, default is poster. The imagetype defaults are fine. They are consistent. It is the displaydescriptions which creates the pop-up info bubble that isnt consistent. This is the part causing people problems.

The dialog will say it is on, because there is no registry setting yet because they never changed the option, the firstOf passes the 1. This is correct. But then in the tvscreen code it has its firstOf with a 0 at the end. Not every instance in tvscreen has a 0. Some have 1, some have 0. This is what I mean. :)

This also happens in other screens. You basically need to look for every "displaydescriptions" and make sure if its pulling a regread with a firstOf that the default passed is a 1. It is this problem confusing users. After they set a default for that registry item problem disappears but until they do it causes a problem.

ok i think the reason it's off by default is because the decription popup is awkward for the a-z rows. it's an imperfect situation no matter which way we go.

But I mean, the confusion is here. The tvscreen will default it off, except on its sub-screens. Pressing * on the main tvscreen will show it is on, but it isnt showing. Clicking it on again, even though it shows its already on, then enables it.

This is what I mean, users think the option is already on, isnt showing and immediately assume its broken feature. They believe the client is broken as did OP of the thread. It is this confusion needing correction.

The tvscreen is not confusing with pop-up info bubbles on, it looks redundant at times, sure. But having it there adds extra info that is otherwise unavailable in the poster view. If poster view is default, pop-up info bubble should be too.
