I really love some of the views ( like Roller and FanArt for Music) but I just can't seem to fall into to Horizionz like I did MediaStream. I really enjoy the "feel" of MediaStream. And since I like making Themes, I've got one lined up for MediaStream. Did you see the mock-up I posted?

Hey FourTwentySmilz,

Unfortunately, the simplest answer is gonna be, no... Big Grin 720p will be the lowest resolution we support and if you are experiencing problems since updating to the new version than obviously it's something to do with the latest version of either XBMC, or MediaStream.

Just a quick question is the scraper in 8.10/Atlantis for Xbox pointing at TMDB.org? as I seem to be having a nightmare getting all the fanart in....?

Also after a real cheesy one that I cant find anywhere! Disneys Candleshoe. Big Grin

Hey Geeba,

It is pointing to themoviedb.org but is using the old API. I believe the latest builds of XBMC are using the newer API but until a new beta is released you might continue to have some issues with getting a certain percentage of backdrops.

RE: Candleshoe, I might suggest mentioning this over here: http://forums.themoviedb.org/forum/2/mov...s-posters/

Is there a way for us to vote on backdrops or maybe even delete some of them?

There are some really crappy ones that have been uploaded for some movies and often those are listed as the first backdrop so it's the one that gets scraped. If we could rate the backdrops on the site and the highest rated one was listed first, that would help to make sure the scrapers get the higher quality fanart.

I was thinking the same thing myself yesterday. Something similar to thetvdb implementation would be great.

Good idea LaTropa! That's a very big feature, that they're missing atm.

Edit: Search isn't working it's giving a server error. Wonder if they're updating? Anyone else have this issue?

Geez, brutal. No gratitude at all? Laugh I'm sure everyone understood what the intended message was but I couldn't help but laugh.

I browsed TMDb (with firefox) and found out that all search results (and even the interface and the rest of the page) are automatically shown in my native language (german).
This is great! Big Grin

I don't know how it detects my language setting but I'd like to know if there is a way to use it in the scraper too?

Hey Tariella,

The API does not have language support yet, but it is planned.

Thanks.

Thanks for the info.
I thought it might be possible because the web page features it already.

Its worth waiting for - best movie database I've seen yet. Nod
