    What should I do when I get the wrong fanart images for a film?


    Fanart is downloaded from the TMDb website. Sometimes the movie titles are not exactly the same as those listed on other websites so they do not always match the title you have for your film.

    Most often the cause of wrong fanart is a result of several movies in your catalog with the same title. 


    First, search TMDb to see if there is fanart which matches your movie title.  Check if there are several films with the same name.  If so, then add the year to your movie title so that you have two separate, unique fanart folders for each film.  You can always move fanart from the previous folder that was not unique, to the new fanart folder My Films will create when you change the title.
