Local Trailers Genre?

Question

When I first started with CinemaVision, iTunes trailers weren't working until I downloaded an updated build.  Then they worked for a while and now they don't (I know that a fix in in development :D) so I am downloading trailers to store locally.  Is there a way to associate a genre with the trailers?  When iTunes trailers were working,  I think the metadata probably wasn't being transmitted to CinemaVision because the genre didn't really match the feature and trailers which I watched still played repeatedly (even after clearing broken trailers (I think that's what the option is) and resetting the watched trailers history).

I don't mind these issues, I'm just glad an option exists for trailers!!  I just wondered about setting the genre.

Thanks!

Hey Phil! The bad news is, there's currently not a way to associate genre with trailers stored in the Trailers directory. As of this post, only StereoscopyNews.com and the Kodi Database scrapers can catalog the rating of films. The good news is two-fold. That feature is something that is on the development roadmap (including a trailers management piece that lets you manipulate the trailers in the CinemaVision database), and iTunes is mostly working as of last night. We've got a little more testing and a few bug fixes to do, and we'll push 1.0.12 to the official Kodi repository in the next few days. :)
