    New hardware is already in the pipeline, though not sure which chipsets will be used.

    You mean the headband at the top of the poster when looking at your movies, not the mkv logo on the movie info screen?

    In Settings, select the wrench/hammer icon. Under Theme uncheck "Show top covers".

    That will turn the black bar off at the top of the poster showing the file container.

    Seems similar to this one - https://zappiti.uservoice.com/forums/310888-zappiti-english/suggestions/39265864-improve-csv

    I'm all for it, would be great to report on the collection.

    I think the best way to address this would be to have a landing page for each TV show. So when you click on a show, instead of just getting season posters you get a brief summary of the show and details about it that you can modify just like a movie page when you go into it. That way you should have Edit ability to modify the description of the show, change the title etc.

    As long as the display name doesn't mess with the actual DB name so that future episodes/seasons added land in the right spot, this would be cool.

    I'm not even sure Kodi does this as I haven't used it much, but it would be a nice way to manage TV shows.

    I have no problem scanning documentaries as movies or TV shows, and then going to Categories where the Documentary category already exists. You just need to make sure TV documentaries are in the TV folder and film documentaries are in the Movie folder. That's it.

    You can also right click on the home screen, "Add a Module" and select Documentary. You can then re-order them so that Movies, TV & Documentary all appear side by side however you like.

    Similar was requested many years ago and knocked back. They didn't want to provide additional filters at a movie or tv level. Would be nice to see this tucked under Movies and TV rather than at a whole of library level though.

    According to comments on Facebook, current players cannot be upgraded due to the Realtek chipset. Only when they release next gen players will they have more modern SMB support. See posts below for comments in-line from Zappiti:

    So set your Showcase to be Categories then?

    This makes no sense.

    You can add as many TV or Movie folders as you want, just go to the Folders screen in Settings. I have multiple for Movies setup because they are in different locations.

    I don't understand how existing functionality gets so many votes?

    There used to be a movie wall style layout, agree it would be nice to have that back.

    Xavier: If you're using TVDB naming, what's painful about the process (other than manually correcting what it gets wrong)? It sounds infinitely more time consuming to have to manually create and point to each file, add images for every episode, season, etc.

    Robert: Do you need any additional help since the previous thread here - https://zappiti.uservoice.com/forums/310888-zappiti-english/suggestions/42301495-new-user-best-practices ?

    You want the names to match what https://thetvdb.com/ has at the moment, i.e. "The Office" will give you the original UK series and "The Office (US)" will give you the US version. Search for the proper name and use brackets where possible to clarify the year, even if it's not officially in the name of the show on TVDB.

    When I scan new content I have it in "G:\TV\Modern Family\Season 9\Modern.Family.S09E01.Episode.Title.mkv" and it scans the right folder. I don't like repeating the series name twice though, so once the scan & identification is done, I rename the file so the path is just "G:\TV\Modern Family\Season 9\S09E01 - Episode Title.mkv" and then re-scan to ensure the file is re-linked to the new name. Once you scan and identify something properly, you can rename the files to something else, but if you need to redo something later that could be an issue. I have a bulk file naming application called Advanced Rename and I use that often to add/remove text to files to help with bulk updates and use filebot to rename after Zappiti is done with the scans.

    My folder structure for the TV share is:

    Series Name\Season 1\episode files
    Series Name\Season 2\episode files

    So yes you can create subfolders, just keep it clean like that and make sure the filename when identifying has series name and SxxExx information to help identify the content initially. I found when I first went to Version 4 that grouping things alphabetically was a stupid idea, as it thought the W folder was a show. Make sure the first level folders under TV share is the name of the TV series. Subfolders for seasons are fine, but you'll still see all episodes in the season when you select it in the application, which means you might have 2-3 screens to scroll through episodes. As you watch stuff you can filter Hide Seen and that list gets shorter with each viewing until you finish the series.

    There's also this similar suggestion which may be worth putting your votes to.

    Good call. I believe identification was much better in earlier versions and has gotten more difficult. You could quickly and easily do things in bulk on ZMC and they seemed to be better grouped.

    Would love to see identification improved, but I can't toss any votes to this as I haven't got any left.

    I have been chatting with support about this today. ZMC used to do this, if it found episodes not scanned it would group them to series and you could then bulk scan the whole thing. I can't add attachments in comments, but i have screenshots showing this. 10 episodes of 1 show missing, it allows you to identify the one show then it identifies all 10 episodes, you don't need to manually select through one by one.

    I had to spend half the night sifting through 60 episodes of 1 show because this feature was removed. And instead of bringing it back, I have to come try to vote it back into existence, because a positive user experience is apparently not what we're looking for here.

    The worst part is when you identify the show and go to select the episode, it's already predicted the right one every single time. It's wasted effort to click OK to select the show then OK again to confirm the episode is identified right. Once you confirm the show, everything else is correct.

    BRING BACK THE OLD FUNCTIONALITY!!! Stop this one by one nonsense, it's bloody ridiculous.

    Sounds like a good idea but where would it be displayed on an already busy screen? Especially those with multiple categories attached?

    It's incredibly strange for Year to be missing when it's such important metadata.

    Why can't the CSV just jump all DB fields, including categories as well?

    It's unfortunate to head you say you won't upload content to TMDB when your entire movie catalog is based off their images in the first place.

    As they lost content, the request was simply to help them restore what you originally took from them anyway.

    Poor form. I expected better given how much they have helped Zappiti become what it is today.

    I did a search on Das Boot online and can't find an original TV series. Wikipedia says the movie was also aired as a miniseries. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Das_Boot

    There's nothing online about a TV series in 1981, on IMDB or any other site that I could find.

    You mean Possible Worlds, season 2 of Cosmos 2014? https://www.thetvdb.com/series/cosmos-a-spacetime-odyssey/seasons/official/2

    Name it Cosmos (2014) S02E0x episodes and it should scrape fine.

    If you get the wrong title, you can force a re-scan - https://zappiti.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/733920--indentification-when-a-movie-is-incorrect-how-c

    Or you can do manually as requested - https://zappiti.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/1162231--identification-how-to-insert-a-video-without-ide

    Regarding lip sync:

    "Only the Sigma Designs chipset had this function. The Realtek chopset does not." This is applicable to pre-HDR models of Zappiti Player.

    With the HDR models - "The new Zappiti 4K HDR support the lip sync function so you do not need any audio correction."

    "Lip Sync is auto adjust. manual adjust is not Lip Sync."

    "The lipsync is a function to perfectly sync the audio and the video. It works fine at 90%. It could not fine if you have extreme audio processing that takes more than 10 ms (ex. dynamic phasing crossover option on Trinov AV receiver)."

    Basically it's as good as it's going to get. Audio correction from the old days is dead, you're going to have to hope the lip sync feature works, because manual intervention to adjust isn't going to happen.
