yeah, that's the right one, it should work for those.. some media is picky it seems.. i might just redo the whole scan process and use ffmpeg instead of mediainfo for it.

New version is working great. ^_^
I can't comment on the issue with it not showing files with
a . on the end of them as I no longer have any, but fanart
and posters are working fantastically in auto pilot mode.

Yeah, some of them worked and others didn't which leads me to believe it may be an issue with the files. The ones that aren't working give me this in the media information box. Look at the "Last Scanned" date...that threw me off a bit

ok a few questions now i finally have my collection sorted
1. How does mivupdate work , do i just run it and leave it running, ie will it auto update my collection when something new is added?
2. When i add some new episodes, how do i get aeon to update, it doesnt seem to be adding in the new eps, have tried scan for new content, update libary, but content is staying same??
EDIT if i do a relaod in xbmc and reload all episodes it does pickup the new one, but that can take a long while just for one ep.
3. i still have the recycle bin or that name i gave u erlier showing in my movie list, more anoyin than anything
thx for ur help

yup, that's the text it puts in when it can't read the stream data .. or it's just too old of a movie 0001 .. musta been done with rocks
there's a post somewhere in this thread about using the tv update command line.. in short, depending on what options you set it to, it'll find and update any new items automatically.. the exception is that new shows need to have the tvdbid put into a text file in the folder.. tvdbid.txt .. just the number, nothing else, no spaces, no returns.. just digit's.
open command prompt, change to your install directory of mip, run
i'll let others comment on the ways to update the xbmc side.. i'm trying to find the stupid setting that keeps putting the cert data into the mpaa field when it's not suppose to..
it shouldn't be picking up on that folder if you have the file
in there.. make sure it's not specialfolder.nfo.txt .. i.e. turn on file extensions in windows so ya can see it.

wow i like miptvupdate, i had it scheduled, ddn't know how it worked! can i close the window once i have set it?
um ok any want to help re xbmc updating would really appriciate it
ok i will check that file again
again thx for your patience, i really am impressed with the app, just having teething issues
So I just scanned my library and I noticed a few things. - JRuss2k - 2009-04-07 05:39
I finally got some run time with MIP (build 2854) and noticed a few issues. Some I am sure is my own lack of knowledge but I did try to look around the interface. So in no particular order.
[Bug maybe] When using autopilot I noticed that sometimes the most popular choice doesn't show up in the list but sometimes will still be selected. Take the movie Doubt (tt0918927). Using the file Doubt.avi, Doubt does not show up in the list. In IMDB it is #1 popular title but doesnt show on the movie pick list. However, if I click cancel it is the one selected.
[Bug maybe] Speaking of cancel. So I don't see my movie listed. I really want to manually enter the IMDB ID but I could not get this to work. So I cancel. I usually have to cancel twice as the list reappears. Then it picks a random (well random to me) movie. So I have to write down the movie so I can somehow manually scrape it alter.
[Feature request/user error] How can I enter a movie manually using the IMDB ID?
[Feature request/user error] I have used autopilot but not yet used PreCache. When I click on any movie it proceeds to download files. Sometimes the multidownloader popup appears sometimes it doesn't. I prefer to let the PreCache do that when I go to bed. Can I turn the autodownloading off?
[Feature request/user error] How can I not have MIP not popup a box telling me that fanart has been downloaded?
For some movies (like 300), I see Wide Images/3D Boxes shows (52) but there is only a couple (in all selections). Batman Begins shows 485 yet I see none. Is this because I have not DLed them yet?
Movies with hyphens...is this bad? I notice that when I scrape, everything after the hyphen is ignored.
Thanks in advance,

put 2 files in recycle bin, specialfolder.nfo and also tried noscan but still have these two in the movie list.
Very strange, any further ideas?
Also small feature request, can u add an option for start up behaviour
Display or Download
I keep opeining up to do a quick update for an episode and it then goes and tries to download fanart, thumbs etc all over again, when in display mode it doesnt do this.

So in no particular order.found the issue with not showing up.. 95% have a real year in (2000) format.. and others they put whatever in .. (2008/I) ..fixed so it'll find those now
to specify a specific imdbid, you can create an .nfo file with the imdb id in it.. as long as it's tt followed by 6 or 7 digits, mip will find it.
in the gui, you have to put it into the field after scraping, and click the green refresh button next to that field
the double screen being displayed is annoying at times, but was the easiest way to allow me to use the same dialog for all areas, it just always try's to find what it's looking for.. later i'd like to have an option that when you click not here, it brings up a tmdb dialog with the search from there, or other scrapers.. just haven't got any of that done up yet.. kinda getting swamped with other things, so trying to get the bugs sorted, a few key features that I think are necessary (or i just want ) .. those things will prob be awhile out still..
ofdb is next for major features.. i think the next build is going to work pretty good, most if not all bugs are gone, there's 4 or 5 i fixed tonight. I'm going to do an installer version for the next release and see how that goes.

i'll see about the startup option when i get the window display size items set as well, i.e. remember window size and poisition as well as where the dividers are at.

Can I turn the autodownloading off?run precache and get some z's.. it'll only have to run once and the updates will be few and far between
should be a setting that says something like, notify me of new images.. or soemthing like that.
the wide images / box shots counter is on crack keep forgetting to fix that one.
there's a setting to ignore everything past the - in the config for file level movies.
