Picked up where?

Do you mean [moviename].jpg or "moviename".jpg?

Ok, I tried it today and can confirm the filename problem. I just messed up a string when restructuring the code for supporting just "fanart.jpg" etc.

I will upload a fixed .exe as soon as I can Smile It's been a busy week for me.

Good idea. Could you send us the project page link when it's done. I'm looking for base to add functionalities to generate other files than nfo files. I'm a user of XBMC and Vista Media Center with the Media Browser module. So, I'm looking for something that is able to generate the nfo file and the xml file for Media Browser.

ive created (well only 1 so far) some dora the explorer entries in The Movie Database that done exist in IMDB so i was wondering is there any chance we could scrape information from The Movie Database as well?

PS Also im still keen for you to make another colum that indicates if the movie has been manually edited please please please implement this please please please.

So, are "fanart.jpg" "folder.jpg" and "movie.nfo" valid file names? I thought that I had to name my fanart and posters files exactly as the movie: Shooter (2008).nfo, Shooter (2008).tbn, Shooter (2008)-fanart.jpg and so on.

Automode seems to just name them "movie.nfo". Will those files be read correctly by XBMC?

movie.nfo is correct when you have movies in folders

So, if I have all my movies with their corresponding .nfo, .tbn and fanart files inside each directory, will XBMC use those or will re-scrape everything when I set the contents of each source?

The whole idea is that it is reused and scanning to library will be much much faster

I'm aware of that, and I will fix it in the next version.

As for when, I can't tell. I don't have very much spare time at the moment.

I created an application myself that looks just like your main screen, to scan for nfo, tbn, srt and fanart in my movie directories. But it does not scrape anything, I use Media Companion for that.

So this looks like the best of both worlds. I really like the simple interface, I find most of the other apps horrible to look at...

Will definitely check this out. Would be nice if you could check for sub's too, so if one or more are available, this is displayed.

Will have a look at the code too if you publish it, since I am a C# developer...
