shms, I use Ember, then go to the VIDEO, FILES menu. Then select "Scan for new content", and scan the folder(SMB) and it grabs the info from the files Ember creates and adds that info to the DB. You'll need to do that for your MOVIE and TV Show sources individually.

Okey but where do i edit the info for my mysql server?

Add it to the advancedsettings.xml:

http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=HOW..._libraries

You may have to create it. Just read both of those.

If I select 4 extrathumbs on full scrape then afterwards I still need to press a button to transfer from queue. Poster and fan art just appear without this extra step, can I automate this?

On scraping fan art ticking 4 pictures should make them extrathumbs right?

This step is not needed. This button is only for a preview of pictures before you press OK to save all files/info.

wow thanks that is fast! Just moved from Eden (which was an updated Dharma). Still fiddling with all options here to get it just right. Struggling with banners and posters for tv shows and some of the new frodo naming. Will fiddle some more myself. I see two great german links in your sig, are there English versions as well?

Ember does not read XBMC's database. It has it's own database. If you've scraped info within XBMC Ember will not have access to that info. It will scrape the data on its own and create whatever files you tell it to in the settings. You could export you XBMC database as individual files. Then Ember will read that info when you add the sources the first time.

Read this before using these builds.

Would anyone be willing to post a few screenshots of the EMM settings in relation to using it with Boxee? I have been seeing alot of weird scrapping/fanart/poster files getting changed/removed with new scrap sessions. All weird stuff, and I would like to cross off the list a missed setting. I am trying to use trailer/fanart/posters for both movies and TVShows.

much thanks, and keep up the great work here with EMM !

I've gotten a stack of new films to rip for Christmas and I've noticed something odd. EMM no longer seems to be able to find a title by choosing to "scrape/re-scrape" the film... even if I try to do a search I simply get no results. The only thing that appears to be working is if I put the IMDB entry in manually, then the film is located.

Any suggestions?

OK, thanks. I always scan the previous several posts in a thread to make sure it's not a widespread issue, I must have missed the discussion.

Is development stalled again on EMM?

Hello everyone. Is there any way to export a list of all your TV episodes? I would love to be able to easily see the various formats that I have for different shows so that I can track down better versions, when applicable.

Hey guys I've got a feeling IMDB have changed something again?

I added two new movies today and got the wrong results when auto scrape was used, so I went back and rescraped a number of movies that had auto scraped fine before and now they also return the wrong results. Only way to get the correct results now is selecting them from the list of available matches.

I retested the following and got the results in brackets, as I said these all auto scraped perfectly before using "Ember_1.3.0.7_fix1" actually fix1 solved this same problem that was in one of the previous other fixes.

Premium Rush (Maltin on Movies" Premium Rush)
The Bourne Legacy (Midnight Movie Review" The Bourne Legacy)
Looper (Projector" Looper)

I'm running more than one build for different library's and I tried a clean install and they all do the same today, I've not changed a thing either.

Current HTPC Lian-Li PC-C37 • Gigabyte GA-E7AUM-DS2H • Intel C2D E8400 E0 Stepping • OCZ Vertex SSD • 4GB Corsair TwinX XMS2 DDR2 • Corsair HX650W Modular PSU (Free Upgrade) • LG CH08LS10 Blu-Ray Drive • Scythe Big Shuriken • Acousti DustPROOF 70mm Fan
