Another one here, Martyn Joseph - An Aching and a Longing

Tell me, is it possible to scrape based on MBID?

OE 4

I've a few albums that aren't scraping. I'll try 1 at a time - that way I'll may be able eliminate albums with similar issues. Here is the first:-

I was running the OE RetroPlayer branch, and that's the version that didn't work. The official OE scraped correctly, less the ommissions I've described above, that I'd still like to be resolved.

The endless loop. Anything?

Thanks for reporting, but as for the rest, why you are not just using an nfo file with the direct link to the failing artist(s) as a workaround and you will be fine.

I could, and probably will, but it's always better that scraping works without manual intervention, it creates an elegant XBMC experience Smile

Thanks.

No question about that, hence I said thanks for reporting, but having an elegant XBMC experience doesn't require regular bumps in the thread Tongue

I wrote a guide on using MusicBrainz Picard to fix any albums that dont scrape properly

Should work for all lookups that dont work, and is a hell of a lot quicker than using NFO files once you get it setup.

I'm having an issue where some albums have the same title on different discs (like on DVD-Audio albums where disc 1 might be the CD album and disc 2 is the album in high-res) and when scanned into the library, it only shows one instance of each song. I have used music brainz Picard for the tagging & it has the disc number info etc.

Is there a way to fix this or a setting I may have missed?

FYI I have this fixed. To get it to work, I deleted the MusicBrainz Release ID tag on duplicate albums (where I had both stereo and 5.1 versions of the same album) and I also made sure to tag each album with a unique name (ie Album Name, Album Name [5.1 mix] etc.
