I have a funny problem:

 

In some of the TV shows scanned by Emby, I get thumbnails for each episode of a certain season. In addition to that, a same number of thumbnails with just the picture of the series is also added, 'doubling' the number of episodes displayed for a certain season.

 

Attached a file that illustrates the situation.

 

Only the first ones can obviously be accessed, while the second set just being displayed. Clicking on them does nothing...

 

I already removed all metadata, asked for refresh and even moved all folders residing in the one for that TV show to a different/new folder. Nothing worked for me so far.

 

I should mention that all data is on a Qnap NAS, but I run the server on a Windows 10 PC.

 

Thanks for any suggestion of how to remove those redundant thumbnails

Did you enable display of missing episodes?

There are no missing episodes.

 

I gather you're suggesting to DISABLE display of missing episodes. Is that correct?

 

I can't find where to change this setting...

Same place you enabled it, in Emby library setup.

My guess is your naming scheme?  Could you show the naming scheme.

We're dealing with episodes that were not recorded by Emby; just put into a folder.

 

You mean like a possible cause would be that, an episode name is:

  Show_Name Season 3 Episode 01 - Sample

 

Whereas, naming it differently, like:

  Show_Name.S03E01.Sample

 

...might solve the problem?

Correct as the I don't believe "Show_Name Season 3 Episode 01 - Sample" is a supported naming scheme so all those are actually unidentified, correct?  If so they are missing to Emby and listing them per your settings.

I see.

 

Changed the name of one episode using a naming scheme, similar to Show_Name.S03E01.Sample.

 

All I need is to refresh that season selecting "Replace existing images", right?

You can just wait and let the realtime monitor pick up the change, if you've enabled that, or run a library scan.

Will run a library scan.

 

See what happens.
