reimport of movies with changed nfo files (1 Viewer)

Hi,

I created nfo files for my movies by using TMM and then I imported the nfo into mp2.
So far so good.
Then I had to change some of the nfo with TMM (SortTitle, Covers, etc.)

Is it possible to reimport nfo?
It seems as if the reimport only wants to use the online scrapers.
Only way I could figure out by myself til now is to delete the media source and create it new, so that there is a fresh imort.

    That's a bit overkill. It is sufficient to move the files in questions out of the share. This will trigger an automatic refresh (or trigger it manually), which deletes the stored file information. Then move the files/sub-directories back into the share.

    It seems as if the reimport only wants to use the online scrapers.
    Don't know. @henso, how has this been implemented? Will it always look at online data, regardless of the online settings?

    That's right, only online sources are used, because the reimport is intended to fix wrong existing information, as e.g. existing in nfo file.
    There is no possibility to "reload" the content of a nfo file besides above way (moving out of share and moving back).

    Thank you for your answers.
    I did the "moving film out and inside the share" and the new nfo is imported. Way better than my original way :)
    For one movie I have imported a wrong poster.jpg some imports ago.
    Althoug I changed it in the movie folder and in TMM the reimport of the movie with new nfo does not change the fanart.
    Is the fanart stored somewhere else during the initial import? How can I change this wrong cover?

    Weird, when I changed the skin it showed the new cover for the movie.
    A change back to the previous skin and the old cover is shown.
    :confused:

    Currently using:
    Skin: Blue Visison
    Theme: Default
    Result: Old Cover is shown

    Changing to:
    Skin: WMC
    Theme: Default
    Result: New Cover is shown

    I can switch back and forth and the result stays the same.

    Please switch from BV/Default to another theme, e.g. Titan Extended: what is the behavior?

    Changing of the Theme does not result in Cover change.

    @ge2301 , the above suggests that it is an issue with some file refresh. I trust you know better where to look for the differences between WMC and BV in this respect.
