In all skins "previewbackground.png" is missing, so no new album- and genrethumbs are created.

    I'm not sure what a missing .png has to do with the missing album- and genrethumbs. Did you try to refresh the Album/Artist Info through the Context Menu (F9)?
    Show AlbumArtist Info.PNG
    When i refresh, the info & thumb are scraped.

    Of course i've done a refresh several times. It happens with a new music-database and a clean thumbs-folder.
    I will provide screenshots and logs at night...

    I just deleted my Music dB and cleaned my Music thumbs. Ran an import through MP Config, start MP, goto music section, select album and updated Album/Artist Info:

    Okay here are two pictures how it should be in the default wide skin,
    without "previewbackground.png" only the blue folder icons are visible:
    Artist.PNG Genre.PNG

    These are the relevant settings:

    No (hidden) thumbs are created in the relevant folders!

    Took an old "previewbackground.png" from an old BlackGlass skin and all is fine.

    Yup, let´s add that GFX ;)
    BTW: Never used that function, therefore never encountered this issue ;)

    EDIT: Tried it and must say what a nice feature! Looks great with the different covers ;)

    Using the addition of the file above (or possibly because it's included by default now in the MP 1.3 release? Dunno, as I've upgraded from the alphas/betas/RCs each time) this all works for me apart from one thing...

    When adding new albums for artists for which I already have an album, the thumbs aren't re-generated to show the new albums. For example, I have a clean scan of the database, done from scratch, with all generated thumbs removed before the scan - the thumbs generated are correct for the artist's albums that I have at that point in time. However, if I then add a new album for an artist for which I already have one album, re-scan to add it to the database, the thumbs still show just one album. If I add a new album for an artist I don't have an album for, all is fine... If I clean out the thumbs and re-scan to create the database then the thumbs are generated correctly and reflect all the albums (up to 4, of course).

    Does anyone else see this?

    From "TvServer_SetupTv.2.log", it looks as though you imported channel definitions into MP 1.29 (257 channels, 2 channel groups). Presumably you had previously exported these definitions from MP 1.15. Although this ought to work, I am not sure that it will work when there is such a large difference in the MP versions (there may have...
