    I'd prefer it if there was a away to show a thumbnail from the recording instead of a folder image. I note that when a folder is highlighted, you get the description of the most recent recording inside that folder, and it would be nice if the thumbnail could also be displayed.

    Current:
    rec01a-jpg.119037

    Proposed:
    rec01-jpg.119033





    Current:
    rec02a-jpg.119036

    Proposed:
    rec02-jpg.119035

    I would like to enhance this a little:

    every View:
    In the epg we do have this nice genre colors. Why not enrich the recordings with the colors? It could be a little dot at the end of the name of the recording for example

    Recordings viewed by channel:
    would be nice to have the channel logos here instead of folders

    Recordings viewed by genre:
    Here I see every genre out of my epg and these are a lot. From my point of view only the gernesgroups which are used for the colors should be used for grouping the recordings

    Can possibly be done already in the skin

    Can definitely be done in the skin already

    I think my genres view is broken, unless everything has no genre in my epg.

    Right something close to what you want
    https://github.com/MediaPortal/MediaPortal-1/tree/FEAT_TV_Folder_Thumbs

    This will show a thumb for folders (the thumb from latest episode)
    This works fine in list view however in any of the icon views you loose the ability to see what is in a folder and what is just a single recording which makes it pretty hard to use.

    I guess this needs to have masks like you have shown in your mock up but I don't know how to do this. (can this be done in the skin file?)

    Also there seem to be some oddities in the labels when not in list view anyway so there will need to be tidying up but in theory it is doable...

    There was no change obviously related to it, but maybe something as the fixed user management or similar made it.

    Thanks for all the assistance; it is greatly appreciated. Rather than going the suggested route: I decided to do was I had stated earlier. I deleted all partitions (after taking the respective images, of course), then used Partition Master to do a surface scan, on the raw drive. As it came back with zero bad clusters, I thought it...

    Thank you for performing this test, and confirming @joecrow 's suspicion as to the cause of the problem. In principle the same problem exists with other EPG sources, such as the broadcast EPG that I use with DVB-T/T2. When a programme first appears in the EPG (7 days ahead of its broadcast time), some programmes have a generic...
