    Hm i have a feature request.



    Is there a way that we can put Covers from Movies and Series in the TV Guide and TV OSD ?

    For example i use Kisscon, Kisscon compares the epg datas with the internet db's Tvdb or imdb, moviedb. So there was an exact title, so fanart handler can read this name and can give a image for the textur ? Maybe he can tell it in a lable that this movie or series is on hdd and in the db to ?

    For example from Kodi ::

    I do not have TV. I do not know how the information stored there. And what properties are available. If someone tells me, I can try.

    i've seen you've added support for further import tags in the xmltv plugin of TVE3.5 last year.
    Will you also add support for program images? In most cases it's just an url to the images.
    I think that would be the first step to get thumbs in the guide.

    If the epg data provides these of course [emoji6] But it would probably also limit the images to the MediaPortal frontend.
