    First I added the

    and could not get the information nor the poster to be displayed. Then I added the


    to the BD-structure


    before building the ISO. Could not make the info nor poster visible with firmware

    Could someone please post a short sample *.nfo file ? Maybe I have not edited this correctely.

    Yes, you need edit info in this file, so that you can see it on detail page.

    Thanks Rita ,

    Could you show me a sample of how this file should look?

    Usually when we download a movie, it accompanies the nfo file with movie data and other technical information, is this what need? Or something specific to work on posterwall?

    Yes, this file should include this info "Usually when we download a movie, it accompanies the nfo file with movie data and other technical information"

    Dear Egreat,

    Can I suggest that, when there is no xxx.nfo file, the system will still display the thumbnail with xxx-poster.jpg and using the filename as Title. It will save us time to create NFO files if someone only want to see the posters! Thanks in advance.
  8. What if I do not have an ifo file? Can I create one?

    But it seems nfo cannot override the default movie info or poster if.

    Rita, how can we manually correct the wrong poster with nfo and xxx-poster.jpg?
  11. @Bigpen How do I create an nfo file for those video files that do not have one? TIA

    @Rita, I've got an issue with some movie and TV-Show not indexed properly by poster2.0. I tried the method you indicated above.

    1) the movie is in BDMV format, the BDMV directory is within the MOVIE_TITLE directory located on HDD1.
    I created a index.nfo file containing the IMDB link to this movie i.e.*******/ following the recommandation from
    the index.nfo file is located in the MOVIE_TITLE directory.

    2) regarding the TV Show , episodes are located on NAS, under a TV_TITLE directory. I added a file named tvshow.nfo in this directory as shown by @E_CS above.
    the tvshow.nfo is also containing the link to IMDB.

    unfortunately this is not working. May you help me with this matter?

    kind regards

    Dear All,

    I tried to put covers on the movie folders, using the above descriptions. Most probably I'm doing something wrong, because I do not see the covers.

    First of all: we have to have a nfo file. But those fils what shoud contein? What info has tobe inside? I'm using the aplication Cool Bean NFO to generat the files (the NFO files), but it seams it is not ok. Should I use other type of aplication? What whould you recommend? In my movie collection I do not have the NFO files.

    Secondly: what is the corect naming for the files? For instance, I have the movie: Black Hawk Down (2006). so I named the files as follows: Black Hawk Down (2206)-poster.jpg - the A11 did not read the file and also I named the files simply poster.jpg - same result.

    I placed the files first in the route folder, having:

    Black Hawk Down (2006)

    in the second try I moved the file to:
    Black Hawk Down (2006)

    still not working.

    @Rita please help me out in a step by step instruction how to do it.

    Thank you in adcance,
    Best regards,

    I made several test. The result was, that is very important to right correctly the name of the movie - more exactly, to have the name written exactly like in the date base. Other wise, the application will not recognize it.

    Another question: how can I add more date bases (web sites links) the scraper?

    I'm using MediaElch for creating Kodi/EGreat conform nfo files. For understanding the nfo format you could checkout Kodi Wiki.
