Importing NFO Files Issue
« on: April 07, 2015, 03:30:24 pm »

When importing metadata for TV shows from XBMC NFO files, I noticed these issues.

First, the Description tag is not updated.  In the NFO file, this is stored in the <plot> tag.  If I change it from <plot> to <description> in the NFO file, JRiver will use it.

Second, the <actors> field acts funny.  If the <role> tag for each actor in the NFO file is empty, JRiver lists "actorname1, as ; actorname2, as" instead of "actorname1; actorname2".

Third, it would be really helpful if JRiver also used the thumbnail that comes with the NFO file.  XBMC/Kodi uses thumbnail names of filename-thumb.jpg, or filename.tbn for much older versions of XBMC.  Maybe renaming or copying those to filename.jpg during import would be a good idea.
