Movie Set Artwork Not Displaying (Vero 4K+, v19.1)

Movie sets are stored along with my film library on a NAS (LAN) with the following structure (created by Tiny Media Manager):

… etc

The path to movie_sets is configured in Settings …/Movie set information folder (video). All movie set directories have valid poster and fanart images, but Kodi is not picking up the images for at least 30% of the sets.

I can’t figure out what’s driving where Kodi pulls the images from or why so many are failing. The sets that are failing to show posters do correctly display the films that are members of the set.

I believe the path to the movie set folder is correct because I have several set posters that I personally made that are only located in the movie_sets/… subfolder and Kodi is displaying those.

To compile sets, does Kodi crawl the movie_sets directory independently of the individual films? What data does Kodi use to compile set lists? And what drives where images are pulled from?

Pretty sure this is a Kodi thing and not a Vero thing:

This is why I’m waiting to update my Vero to 19, not 100% what I need to save or export so that i don’t have to manually create all my sets artwork again after the update

Wasn’t working for me either. There is a fork of artwork beef on Reddit that I’m using and movie set artwork automator was updated to work with matrix. Can find that one on Kodi forum.

Thanks. At least I know it’s not me.
I can’t tell you how much time I"ve spent trying to troubleshoot this issue before posting!

Mine is not working either. Have all my movie set artwork in folder already from Tiny Media Manager. With your solution do I need Artwork Beef and Artwork Automator or just Artwork Automator?

dont need artwork beef

If your using TMM then make sure that Kodi’s preferences are set to use the same movie set artwork folder as what is set in TMM. Additionally if any of the movies in the set have already been scraped into Kodi they need to be removed, as well as the movie set in order for the new information stored in the NFO files to be imported. The easiest way to do this is to plug in a keyboard (or keymap to your remote), highlight the set in the library or widget, then press delete. This will then ask for confirmation for removing each movie and then it removes the set itself. Use caution here if you have the ‘allow deletion’ option enabled in Kodi. Once that is done and you update the library the first movie in a set that gets scraped it will pull the metadata from the nfo and artwork from the folder set in Kodi’s preferences. All other movies scrapped after that will get added to the set but they will not affect the art or plot of the set. The only way to update the metadata for the set is manually by context menu on the set, or by removing the set and all its movies from the library and then scraping again.
