So, i've been running Eden for about 6 months. Sometime w/in the last few months, both the tv and movie scrapers stopped working (Error: "Could not download information. Unable to connect to remote server. Would you like to continue scanning?").

Cleared out my DNS settings, checked my firewall and everything for XBMC was set to 'public' and 'home', so it looks good there and i just kind of chalked it up to something i was too lazy to screw with for now.

Today, i updated to Frodo and the TV scraper works! However, the Movie scraper still gives the same error. Is there any sort of common fix for this?

I came upon this thread (http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=118154) and tried enabling the YouTube add on, but nothing gives.

I greatly appreciate any advice!

thanks a ton!

Confirmed. Somehow the needed files where not included when building.

Download and install manually:

http://mirrors.xbmc.org/addons/eden/meta...-1.2.0.zip

Windows Beta1 has been updated to include needed packages.
No need to install the .zip files


Scraper repo will be filled as soon as possible
