    @jmcentire - Hi did you ever create a similar tool for tvseries to save the season poster in the same folder as the episode file and then save the series poster in the parent directory of the episode file

    Hi.
    TVSeries is not able to use this files so this did not make much sense. But XBMC did exactly the thing you want including ifo files with all database- stuff in... Zwischenablage-1.jpg Zwischenablage-2.jpg

    It makes sense to me, I can visualise exactly how it could be done and the logic behind it. I know about the xbmc/mediabrowser stuff, but i dont like all the extra garbage it puts into the folders, I only like having folder.jpg and nothing else. I could make my own tool, but it would have to use folder matching as reading a database is far beyond my skills.

    @jmcentire - Can you update this to support writing folder.jpg and movie.nfo to UNC network share paths?

    Hey everyone! Been quite a while since I've been here...

    @kiwijunglist -
    1) I started working on a tv series app years ago, but the layout of the database and the way most people have their tv series folder structure laid out made it more work than it seemed worth...I ended up manually copying the images for my 20-30 tv series.

    2) I'm assuming moving pictures is pointed to the UNC path, so what does the log say when it tries to copy an image? I've never tried running it that way, and would have assumed it would work as is.

    As for the future of this app, I'm not sure if I'll be updating it anymore, ever since XBMC got PVR functionality I haven't even opened MePo(I do miss the moving pics and tv series plugins though). Anyway I'll try and find the latest source and post it up later if anyone wants to take over.

    Yes

    They are local files on this PC
    Shared via UNC path
    Moving Pictures points to UNC path

    It looks like the app is able to read from the UNC path correctly but cannot write. Windows usually defaults to read-only when creating a share, make sure the share permissions have "Change" or "Full Control" permissions(If you're on Win7, use advanced sharing to make it simpler). That is the only thing I can think of that would cause your problem.

    Also try manually copying a file to the UNC path and see what happens.
