    Hi aj1405


    If been messing some around tonight with the new TV SERIES plugin *NEW* MP-TVSeries v2.1.3331 (Stable) Build available [13-FEB-09] wich is released today
    and i had some episodes with custom downloaded fanart but it doesnt display all fanart wich can be downloaded inside the MP TV SERIES plugin work fine

    but if i download a fanart and put it in the THUMBS/Fan Art/ Folder it doesnt show up
    has this issue something todo with the skinning xml files ???

    i also tried some older releases of the plugin and all fanart wich are downloaded within the plugin work fine
    but CUSTOM FANART does show up


    hope you can help me with this issue and maybe update the plugin skin file

    also this i copied from the tv series plugin forums

    maybe you can update the skin files with the new functions
    also the fanart fading


    A BIG THANKS to fforde who put all the hard work into the Fanart Fading and letting us use it in TVSeries.
    This is also used in Moving Pictures v0.7+

    Fanart fading is best scene when 'Random Fanart' is enabled (you need to have multiple fanart downloaded for each series)

    Skin Designers can now include a new XML with their packages (TVSeries.SkinSettings.xml), see: https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/my...ngs-xml-51732/

    Please read the accompanying Readme and Skinning documentation as part of the release for more information.

    there is also some new release *NEW* MP-TVSeries v2.2 SVN Test Release [13-FEB-09] for MediaPortal 1.0.1 SVN (10th Feb 09) but im still on 1.0.0 version

    so i dont know if you can update that also in the future
    it has some new functions :

    Changes v2.2:

    This has most likely nothing to do with the skin files.

    Try the TV Series threads; They should be able to tell where to place them and how to name them.
