Hi all. It's great that the P90X videos are in tmdb, but I am having trouble getting them to scrape properly. Currently I have X stretch labeled as "P90X - X Stretch.mp4" in the "videos" folder, which is the same naming as listed on the repo (http://www.themoviedb.org/movie/41719-p90x-x-stretch). Can anyone help me understand how to get it properly scraped? or better yet, stick it under tvshows?

Exactly. Same problem. Show exists in TVDB but doesn't recognize the actual filename for some reason. And help is greatly appreciated..


EDIT: As a test, I used ember media manager, and manually scraped the Chest and Back video. XBMC then picks up the fan art you specify. Pain in the arse.. but it works.

I created a smart playlist with all my Insanity (P90x) videos. You can pick either tv shows or movies (both worked but movies seemed to be easier) after I had the playlist I had to refresh each individual video. But in the end my Insanity looks great.

Although that is the correct name, themoviedb does not find it when you search for 'P90X - X Stretch' on the site itself.
Weirdly enough I could find it when it was named 'X stretch 2007'.

What you could do is create a custom nfo file as explained here: http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=NFO...ning_a_URL

You should name it the same as the movie and just add the url for the page to it. The TMDB scraper should pick it up.
