TV Episode thumb not loading from NFO

Hi.

I've finally bitten the bullet to try and sort out my Futurama episodes into the correct DVD order.

Easiest solution seemed to be nfo files, which is working except for the episode thumbnails.

These still show the image from the air order episode.

For example, S02E01 from TVDB is "A Flight To Remember", but the DVD order episode is "I Second That Emotion".

With an nfo to override the scraped data, I get the correct title, but the wrong thumb.

 

My nfo in this case is below. Please can you tell me what I need to do to get the correct thumbnail?

 

Thanks.

    <title>I Second That Emotion</title>

    <episode>1</episode>
    <plot>Professor Farnsworth installs an empathy chip in Bender after the inconsiderate robot flushes Nibbler down the toilet. With his newfound emotions, a concerned Bender ventures into the mutant-infested sewers to rescue Leela's beloved pet.</plot>

Yes exactly Emby doesn't show the thumb from the NFO. It shows the one you posted which is from the air date first episode. I've tried multiple database refreshes, but it always shows the wrong one.

Are you sure the image isn't cached.  I don't believe image is loaded from url every time.

There is no option to clear the cache via the server.  You have verified there are no images in the season folder?  By change are there embedded images in the media?

Does the nfo file contain the tvdb provider episode id?  Do you have "Save artwork and metadata into media folders" enabled?

 

@@Luke Does Emby read and use the <thumb> url or does it just read the provider ids?

We don't currently read that. Images in nfo are write only. We save them for Kodi to read. We don't utilize them at this particular moment in time.

I don't have "Save artwork and metadata into media folders" enabled. 

 

The NFO is as listed in the top post, what is the tag for episode id? The kodi FAQ doesn't seem to list it.

 

If Emby doesn't obey the thumb tag, what is the procedure to get the correct image for the episode? How do I override it pulling tvdb's S02E01 image?

You'd have to have your own image next to the episode. Reading the thumb tag is possible for the future it's just never come up before. I don't recall anyone ever mentioning it until now so it just hasn't been looked at.
