MythTV - Thumbnails not appearing
« on: February 09, 2014, 08:40:52 pm »
I'm running 12.04. Around the same time I had

My more recently recorded MythTV videos are no longer having thumbnails attached to them automatically in the video browser. If I go through MythTV I see the thumbnails and the .png files are in the PVR directory with the recordings. I suspect that it may have to do with a problem that I had when my media drive was added twice since it seems to have coincided with the start of the thumbnails not appearing. Any thoughts?

I'm still trying to figure this out. How does LMCE grab the thumbnails for MythTV recordings? I see the recording information but just no thumbnail or preview images.

I believe this all happens in the MythTV Plugin, there is a function to update the mythtv recordings. I'm not where I can get to the code at the moment, so I can't say specifically...

Can you file a bug, so you, and all of us can work on it?

The ticket has been created. I wasn't sure if it was a problem with 12.04 or just with my install.
