Excuse me, if I jump on this thread, but have some questions since I  
upgraded to 0.22 and it sounds like Guillaume is not quite  
understanding how jamu works either.

Zitat von Doug Vaughan <r.d.vaughan at rogers.com>:

I don't quite understand why the recordings mode works this way, but  
maybe I'm simply missing something, or some features just haven't been  
implemented yet. Please lighten me up anybody. All these questions are  
related to the recordings mode only:

- Why is there no interactive mode? There are ambiguous results from  
TVDB too, and jamu already picked fanart from wrong movies/series.
- Why doesn't jamu try IMDB or TMDB if searching for a movie that it  
can't find on TVDB?
- Not exactly related to recordings mode of jamu, and probably hasn't  
been implemented yet: why is there no W shortcut for loading art in  
the recordings view?


Do you need professional PHP or Horde consulting?
