Fanart failing

Wed Jul 04, 2018 8:09 pm

It seems like Fanart lookup is failing all of the time. I am not getting much in the log other than "Using System Default". Assuming it is stillusing fanart.tv then all of these artists are on there and should be found.

Something must have changed on fanart.tv. I am glad that this is not just me as I am having another issue with coverart with Sirius, which I believe is unrelated, and I was starting to think it was something to do with my setup. A lot of my scenes depend on these images as they bring the touchscreen to life. Hopefully Dave can investigate and shed some light on it.

Musicbrainz changed their API xml response slightly and that is was is causing the fanart issue. This is fixed in the next release of myServer.

Bump on this one. I have built all of my touchscreens around coverart so it looks very sad at present! Thanks.

I have not forgot about this. As was mentioned the fix is the the next server release. The next server release has some major updates to it and it is going through a lot of testing to make sure it doesn't cause any issues.

While you are updating myserver can you look at some interface updates. For example, sorting command macros alphabetically?

I am setting up a new Spotify process and I noticed I can't get GetArtistFanArt working. It always defaults to the noimage. I am executing the following command:

GetArtistFanart|Artist~{{hs3_squeezebox_artist}}~{{music_currentfanart_cha2}}

When I go to fanart.tv and enter the artist name I am able to find it.

I notice that the Internet Radio app is looking up fan art fine.

Sorry, Command Builder has the syntax wrong.

Change GetArtistFanart|Artist~{{hs3_squeezebox_artist}}~{{music_currentfanart_cha2}}

To GetArtistFanart|{{hs3_squeezebox_artist}}~{{music_currentfanart_cha2}}

I am still having issues with it. I am using:

GetArtistFanart|{{hs3_squeezebox_artist}}~{{music_currentfanart_cha2}}

But music_currentfanart_CHA2 is not updating. In the log file attached it seems to indicate that it is always going with the default.

Also, where are the thumbnail, HDMusiclogo and Musiclogo addresses stored when this command is running? Thanks.

Double bump.

I may be doing something wrong below but I cannot get this to work so would appreciate some pointers. Would really like to get fan art look up working.
