The new site is going to have a lot more features, and moving forward this is something that can easily be added.

I'll probably be announcing the soft launch of the new stuff later today so keep your eyes open. Oh, and before anyone asks, XBMC will still work. We'll be working with the scraper guys to have the new site implemented in the next beta.

I feel like were lacking other backdrops, like settings and stuff. All I found online for 1080p settings backdrops were old torrents with no seeds and 720p backdrops. hopefully a new backpack will drop around aeon stark time.

What's up with this site? Seems like a great idea but the search doesn't work (saw the post about this) and You can' even just browse the artwork. Unless it is new you can't get it...No

Lol, settings are the hardest ones. All I can find in highres is a crap picture of 3 gears. Lol.

hahaha... i got some weird ass futuristic image with a electronic arm burning something onto a disc... that doesn't make any sense does it... but yeah, settings are a pain... maybe i'll just get the fanart for mission impossible and use that as a settings backdrop!

Backdrops are going to be moving to themoviedb.org, we're just not quite done yet.

Searching works there but backdrops are NOT syned 100% to Meligrove yet. That will be done a little later once tmdb is more mature.

I've been poking around on tmdb and I really love the new site, being able to edit abstracts etc is great, basicly like thetvdb.com it's awesome. I take it a scraper is in the works? or at least provisioned for?

Hey Freddo,

Once we have finished the API I am sure we'll get plugged into XBMC. We're just busy bug squashing and first making sure the system is scalable enough to last the test of time. We don't want to invest all this time and have it go down again Big Grin

cool as long as its on the cards then it's worth my time to maintain entries for movies I like. Is there any chance of supporting multiple posters per movie soon? I really want to upload some alternate ones.

It's definitely in the cards and like I mentioned, we're building this one to last.

Multiple posters is a tricky thing... It on the list but not for a while. By all means though, if you think the poster you have is better replace it. I don't think anyone will mind, just make sure the postal is an official Big Grin

Yeah I guess, I don't know if its better or just different, it's a matter of opinion really that's the thing. I'll just keep it stored locally for now but when support goes in I can share the wealth Laugh
