I got the add-on to work now, but it is not giving me the movie posters. Thoughts?

New user to XBMC and Netflix (within XBMC). I have the plugin installed but can't seem to get it to work correctly. For whatever reason, it doesn't seem to be "tied" to my account and I also get Script failed: plugin.video.xbmcflicks

I had the same error on my one pc. I was able to copy the appdata xbmc folder from the one pc to the other which resolved the problem. Bot pc's were running windows 7. I did not have this error when windows xp was installed. I couldnt really trace back the source if the problem.

Love this plugin. One issue I'm having though -- I use a harmony remote on my Windows 7 Media PC to control XBMC.
Right now whenever I select a video, it loads the IE Netflix window. I have a key mapped to F on my remote, when i hit it nothing happens. I actually have to grab a mouse and click on the Netflix window before the remote key will work.
Is there anyway to make sure the IE Netflix windows is selected and completely on top upon launch of a video? It's mildly annoying to have to get up and grab the mouse and click on the screen before I can make the video fullscreen each time.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

So I am trying to set this up however, I seem to be having some issues. It looks like it's never creating a userinfo.txt I assume?
Here is my advancedsettings (I use MPC-HC to launch movies):
Here is my playerfactorysettings:
And here is the error I'm getting:

down.easter Wrote:Hi I have been trying to get the Netflicks plug-in to work on my first generation Apple TV and have had no success so far. I have installed Firefox and silverlight but have had no success getting the browser to come to the front so I can get the activation code. Even then I wonder how to manage to key in the info as the ATv has no keyboard and I can't find how to load the drivers for one (it does have a USB port).
Okay I am slightly farther ahead. I have installed an app called Remote HD on my IOS device and on the appletv. I now have a keyboard but can't get the cmd tab key sequence to work so I can switch between programs (XBMC and Firefox to be exact). I also can't get past the Netflicks welcome screen (i.e. "Thanks for installing. Once installation is complete restart browser") I have restarted firefox a number of times but this is as far as things get. Does anyone have any suggestions? BTW I am using an exact copy of the XBMCFlicks plugin as on my iMac running Snow Leopard. It works well on the iMac and I can switch to the movie or TV show I selected with no problems. I have also used the ATVusb creator (v 3) to jailbreak my appletv and followed the awkwardtv site's instructions for installing silverlight and Firefox.

Just subscribed to netflix. Just downloaded XF from the repo. Every time I try to do ANYTHING in XF, it minimizes XBMC and opens the browser asking me to authorize 'xbmcflicks'. I authorize it and it says it was successfully authorized.. so I tab back into XBMC and it's stuck at "retrieving info 0%", and if I hit cancel, XBMC locks up and I have to kill the process.
I've been trying to fix this for well over an hour.. and have been reading trying to find someone else with the same problem.
One thing I did notice, is that my userinfo.txt is completely empty, 0 bytes (perhaps because I'm forced to kill the XBMC.EXE process before it gets written to?). I tried deleting it as was suggested in another post.. and it recreates the file but nothing ever gets written to it. Just stays empty.
Anyone know what to do? I'm getting unbelievably frustrated with this.

I am getting the same issue with XBMC flicks not showing any information after I go through the initial stage of setting it up. I link the account, and then it tells me to restart XBMC, I do this and there are no videos in any category. I also checked the plugin folder and I do not have the userinfo.txt file anywhere. Is there a fix for this, or somewhere where I can get a copy of a user file to modify and make it work?
EDIT:OK, so I ran through the entire thread and I found where people where having a similar issue, and it was stated that they need to turn on debugging and verbose user information. After that they need to open the log file, (Which for me would be in C:/User/*username*/Roaming/XBMC/Logfile.txt, Win7 64 bit OS) and there would be a line that would have the Key and Secret needed to put in the iqueue.py file. I tried this and it did not work, but I feel like I am missing something.
EDIT 2: OK, so I have looked closer at other peoples log files and I am not getting the same log entry as they are. For mine there i no Key or Secret in the log file. Here is my latest log.

Note:I replaced some of the code with * since I do not know what someone can do with this stuff. Thought I would be safe rather than sorry.

I got the same problem. I managed to solve it to set IE as default browser instead of FireFox.

Hi guys, I'm new to XBMC i installed the plugin and I got it working.
Just a note for OSX users, the script seems to default to Firefox on OSX. I was using chrome and it wouldn't pop a browser to register with netflix, switched my default browser to firefox and it worked.
Anyways, when i choose a show it loads up a new chrome tab and starts playing but it's really intrusive. It doesn't go full screen and instead of opening it's own chrome window it just makes a new tab in my current browser.
How can i control the browser settings to make it seem more integrated. I.E> get it to automatically go full screen and also open it's own window.
Here is my config files.
<player name="IE" type="ExternalPlayer">
<rule name="htm" filetypes="htm" player="IE" />
Thanks, any help is appreciated.
