Thumbnails/Fanart for recordings

Added by Doctor Eggs about 1 year ago

Is there a way to get thumbnails and/or fanart to show up in Kodi for recordings? I can get the channel logos to show up, but when I go into Live TV >> Recordings, it does not show any image for the thumbnail/fanart.

I'd really like to know too.

I don't know if it's a Tvheadend issue or a Kodi one.

I'm using Tvheadend 4.2
There are <icon> urls for each programme in the xmltv and it seems Tvheadend cache them.
In the web interface EPG, those images show up in the info pop-up of each programme.

But then what, not sure what to check.

It's not really an issue. What you are asking for is not really provided by Tvheadend, and therefore doesn't show up in Kodi's TV > Recordings menu. Some skins support scraping that information for additional Fanart and stuff, but that is skin dependent. (For example, the Titan skin has a setting to allow a scraper to download the additional media and use that in the interface, but this is tied to additional functionality by the skin and additional addons, not a feature that Kodi natively supports.)
