I have created these genre icons for the community to use for TV shows. Currently MediaBrowser does not support genre icons for TV shows but instead uses the movie genre artwork so basically I made these with the hopes that maybe one day when the server does support TV genres we can at least have these available to start off with.
 
I created the icons using the psd that is provided on the github (designed by Tikuf) so it can match the genre icons of the other media types (Movies/Music). All dimensions are the same as the movie genre thumb/folder images.
 
Hope you guys approve.

+1 for TV genres being split from movies.

Starkadius is there a way to implement these genre icons manually so that the server doesn't use the movie genre icons for TV shows? Also, is there anyway you can create a genre icon for "Supernatural Drama"?

Disclaimer: I don't recommend anyone doing this in case TV Genres IS added at some point in the future. Since there is no way of predicting when that will be you can continue if you wish.

 

Yeah I am currently doing it manually. What I did was I added a prefix before the genre name.

For example any of the following will work:

 

Adventure --->  (TV) Adventure

Drama ---> (TV) Drama

53113d6e26490_228201455025PM.jpg

 

 

Adventure --->  [TV] Adventure

Drama ---> [TV] Drama

53113da1af186_228201455131PM.jpg

 

 

Adventure --->  TV Adventure

Drama ---> TV Drama

53113dc67f7e2_228201455211PM.jpg

 

 

In this example I used the first method with (TV)

53113f15601c5_228201455733PM.jpg

 

 

Then I made sure to lock the genre setting for the shows so that the metadata fetcher doesn't overwrite them.

Sometimes I have to restart the server for the new genre images to load properly.

 

 

 

Also, is there anyway you can create a genre icon for "Supernatural Drama"?

 

Sure, what shows do you have in mind? Give me at least 3 series names.

 

Usually I try selecting one of each era: Classic, Retro and Modern so that the genre icon can represent a broader range of shows. I don't always follow this method but hope it can give you an idea. You can always just give me modern series as examples, it is up to you how you want it.

 

Classic: 19XX-1979

Retro: 1980-1999

Modern: 2000-Today

Teen Wolf(2011)

True Blood (2008)

The Vampire Diaries(2009)

Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Charmed, Xena:Warrior Princess, and Hercules: The Legendary Journeys would probably fit the retro time

Okay, done. I updated the original download link to include it. Hope it is to your liking. If not I can just try a different variation of it.

@Starkadius, that is great! Thanks alot bud! However, I was looking through  the images and found that in the suspense folder, the thumb is the same as the suspense background, but it says "Mystery" on it.

Starkadius, I used the Genre Cleaner Plugin to "Map" each genre to its (TV) Genre counterpart.Attached File  Genre Map.png   45.69KB   18 downloads

Attached File  Genre map2.png   42.33KB   15 downloads

 

I think this will be easier to change if/when TV genres are added to server functionality, no?

Also, I don't think I should have any trouble with the metadata fetcher overwriting the changes that the genre cleaner made?

I was using Genre Cleaner to do this in the beginning and worked great. Problem is I also have Asian Drama/Dorama and an Anime Genre sets within the TV genres.

 

TV View

(TV) Adventure

(Anime) Adventure

(Dorama) Adventure

 

Genre Cleaner assigns the genres based on Media Types (Movies, TV) and not folders at the top level. Since Anime and Asian Dramas are TV, Genre Cleaner will assign my Anime shows as (TV) Adventure for example instead of (Anime) Adventure. Genre Cleaner cannot assign Adventure to (TV) Adventure AND to (Anime) Adventure for example. This would be resolved if we could base the Genre assigning on folder locations.

 

My hope is that eventually we will get Anime separation and I can use my own anime genre icons for those (which I am currently working on and not yet made available here). Asian Dramas having it's own media type is highly unlikely since I don't believe there is any demand for it unlike Anime.

 

Here are other examples where we can use our own sets as sub TV genre icons

 

(Documentary) Nature

(Documentary) History

(Documentary) Marine Life 

 

(Fitness) Flexibility

(Fitness) Strength Training

(Fitness) Aerobics

 

Since not everyone shares the same collection types it is assumed that all of these fall under TV when technically they don't. This is probably not a problem for you or most people though so yeah Genre Cleaner will work fine for you. No need to lock the genres either.

I see. Well, I do not have that wide a variety of anime, so I just have all of my shows under a TV-Anime genre under TV Shows. Speaking of which, do you have a basic anime genre icon? I see you said you're working on some, but I didn't know if you had what I am looking for.

Added basic Anime genre icon.

 

I don't think trying to spot the odd one out in that icon would be very challenging. 3 kids shows and one that.. probably isn't.
