Duplicate Thumbnails in TV Series

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

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...

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.
