I have the script working for DTS, Dolby, Trailers and intros etc but I cant get the Ratings to work, any ideas? I have my files named as the structure on page 1 of this thread.

Are your Ratings ".avi" files ? I seem to remember avi was the go for ratings, could be wrong

Yes they sure are.

Make sure you have the MPAA set, not just the rating.
Also make sure it says "Rated G" not just "G".

Woops I meant RC2, got confused between the RCs and Betas
One thing I haven't got to work is the ratings system. I have downloaded the UK ratings videos from the HTE pack (linked some where in this thread) but it doesn't work.
What does the script look for?
If so, would I be able to cheat and rename my UK videos (U, PG, 12A, 15, 18) to the US names to get it to work?
Also, how does it decide which audio clip to play? As I have had it play the THX intro for everything except videos with Dolby/DTS sound (inc low def stuff). Is there away to set it up so it ONLY plays and audio intro IF the file has the appropriate sound encoding? So I don't have a 7.1 THX intro to a 2.0 SD video?
I know that's a lot of questions for a script that only got ported a few days ago, so ignore me if you want

Ratings: the script pulls the movie rating from the xbmc video database and looks for one of the following:
It peels off the "Rated" part and looks for a <rating>.avi file in ratings directory, so yes if your UK ratings files were named G.avi, PG.avi, ... they would be used instead.
Audio: At the moment, only the type of audio (Dolby Digital, DTS, Everything else) is pulled from the database. The number of channels in the source are not taken into account.

Thanks for the info on the ratings, I will try that tonight.
As for the audio, I wasn't talking directly about the number of channels, just that I am play a THX intro to a video which doesn't have THX sound.
In my mind how it would ideally work is:
The audio intro is based exactly on the type of sound in the video file.
So if you have Dolby Digital Plus sound then it plays the Dolby Digital Plus intro, but if the video is Dolby TrueHD then it plays the Dolby TrueHD intro. Continuing this theme on for all the different formats
And for SD (acc/mp3/mpeg etc) then you play an "SD audio intro" (or no intro if your prefer).
Possibly a bit of a far reaching request for such a new project, but something to thing about, maybe.

Does anyone know if there is some type of filtering going on with what slides will play and what ones wont? Out of the 1400 slides I have only my Pixar ones play. These are the Silent Hill ones I made a while ago to test with. I dont see any reason why these are not working.
Something has to be different now because all of these slides used to work pre-Dharma.

Good ideas for the future on matching more audio codecs. Also realize that THX is not an audio type its only and opinionated certification. So matching a THX intro will never happen because there is no way (unless you include it in your filename) that XBMC will know it's THX.

targettio, look in myvideos34.db and find the different audio streams and post what you find out. i asked for this before. if there is a way to differentiate them then sounds like a good addition.
slaveunit, there is filtering for slides also, not sure if it's in the version your using, but definately in the new. i think i may require a slides.xml now. again not sure about this version. probably says somewhere in all the pages
and good job to those maintaining this. you took a lot of pressure off me. and if you want to collaborate on the new version let me know. look forward to seeing any new ideas you come up with.
