    Where are my images???

    I ran this program the first time. I than went into PVRX2 and couldnt find any icons. I ran it again, so I could note which programs would have an icon, went and searched the guide for the shows with downloaded pictures... nada.

    So I went to the media directory and there was no art folder.. I thought hmm, where is it saving these pics. I searched my whole computer for them and turned up blank. I created a art folder in the media folder and ran it again. It still says they are downloaded now.

    Is there some txt file telling the program that its already downloaded the pics? Maybe if I erase it and run it over, now with the art directory created it would work. If not, than I dont know where it stored these pictures but it isnt on my hard drive...

    can you capture the output of the program into a text file for me and post it here.
    ProgramImageTool.exe > Images.log

    Thanks, it works now. Its saving the images in the media\art directory now. Im not sure if it didnt work before because I didnt have that directory made or what.

    Thanks for your help.

    One more quick question... sorry for the barrage.

    So I got the images downloaded now, and I check the Guide for images with TV shows... nada. I go to the Wiki and see it works only with TVListings and SearchWiz. I notice that those aren't in the compatible list for v1.0.8 at least said in the wiki. I don't want to install anything to mess up my working GBPVR, so I guess im asking ya if you have them working? Or if the including Guide can be implemented to use them?

    You are correct. The image display for the Guide only works with TV Listings plugin which is not currently supported in 1.0.8. There is no way to get them into the built in guide. That is something sub would have to do.

    The built in Recordings screen has support for pictures but only for images named Folder.jpg that reside in the same folder as the recording.
    You could use the command line options I supplied on the wiki in order to copy the image to the recordings folder as Folder.jpg and then you will have images in the recordings screen.

    This sounds promising. Im still new to gbpvr so excuse my uhhh 'dumbness' about this but would there be a way to 'integrate' this with gbpvr?

    Like for instance everytime you set a recording to add a line in to run your program to download the icon for that show, rename it to folder.jpg, and place it in the appropriate dir? If not when the recording is done, maybe nightly?

    If it is possible, instead of just saying yes, could you point me in the direction. I know I sound helpless but I am dealing with a few gbpvr issues at once and its overwhelming me.

    yep, you can do it. The instructions are on the wiki
    In brief summary:
    In your PostProcessing.bat file (in the gbpvr installation dir) add a line like so
    ProgramImageTool.exe /File %1

    Then to move the file and name if Folder.jpg do something like
    FOR /F "TOKENS=3 DELIMS=\" %%A IN ("%~dp1") DO copy "media\art\%%A.jpg" "%~dp1\Folder.jpg"

    remember that the 3 in TOKENS=3 is the number of subdirectories that your shows get recorded to. (ie c:\RecordedTV\SouthPark\ would be 3)
