When I search on a series (say True Detective) and then search on banners (.../series/" & ID & "/banners.xml") when I get entries like the on e below, which say season 3 but point to season 1. Am I doing something wrong (this used to work before the recent issues with V2 and logging in) or is this a data issue?

-<Banner>
<id>60949998</id>

<BannerType>season</BannerType>
<BannerType2>680x1000</BannerType2>

Interesting that you see season artwork at all in the banners.xml. When you download the zip (which includes language.xml, actors.xml and banners.xml) the banners.xml does not include any season artwork.

Hello. I not became create a new subject. I added two fanarts (backgrounds) for the series "The Kids from class 402" (https://www.thetvdb.com/series/the-kids-from-room-402). Before, there were no backgrounds. It's been a few days, but Kodi isn't shipping for this series backgrounds. I've tried deleting the series from my library and scanning again, but it doesn't help. Kodi does not see fanarts. For other series covers are loaded.

Ya it's ugly. Have you noticed that retrieving the zip vs. just a request for the banners.xml and you get two different versions of the file? Both are still useless but the one retrieved, not inside the zip, is more complete. v1 api is a total mess right now and has been for weeks.

The zip now includes the season artwork in banners.xml, but it was pushed with the season mismatch bug :: facepalm!
