If you are running XP, all of the art for your series' are saved here:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\thumbs\MPTVSeriesBanners\

You could open this folder, delete the folders with corrupted data, and then tell TV-Series to update, and it should recreate the folders and reDL the pictures.

Hope that helps.:)

How to force redownload of fanart

Couldn't leave well enough alone . . .

I was mucking about with the fanart images, corrupted some, then deleted the contents of the folder just to start from scratch. However, while it downloads new fanarts, it's not downloading those images that were there previously.

For some reason, it placed the fanart into the following folder

MP\thumbs\Fan Art\fanart\original\

How can I force My TVSeries to re-download all of those fanart images?

Let me know what else I need to provide to help figure this out.

Thanks for your help

    You can not force it to auto-download fanart that you previously had. If you delete it from disk then it clears that entry from the database next time it does an update so it doesnt try to show it next time you are in plugin.

    The Auto-Download will only down the highest rated fanarts online...if you want something different then you need to handpick and manually download from with-in the plugins Fanart Chooser window.
