Apologies firstly if I have missed something obvious but I'm new to
the list and archive and haven't been able to search it very
effectively. Please bear with me if this repeats any discussion
already existing there.

I've been wanting for a while to view saved getIplayer TV items in
XBMC. I am able to do this but program information output in either
'movie' or 'episode' format does not appear, nor do the thumnail
images appear (instead XBMC seems to thumbnail the a screen grab from
the programme). The folder containing GI items has it's content set to
'TV' with thetvdb.com as default scraper (this doesn't appear to be
able to retrieve anything relevant or otherwise). I noticed that
setting folder conent to 'movie' does in fact lead XBMC to display
programme info correctly, but not the thumbail. This also causes all
programmes to appear in the 'movies' list, which is unwanted as I'm
aiming to keep movies and TV content separate.

So, any leads? thanks very much.
