That is the proper XML file. The YAMMMMID00023|A23119A correlates to another XML file Media Center uses for the actual data.

That corresponding XML file will be located in %AppData%\Microsoft\eHome\DvdInfoCache. If that file is empty or missing then something is either not selected or conflicting.

Setting up YAMMM for two partitions.

Hey guys, I have a question.

Currently I have two partions both containing media files, on my C drive its saved in the videos library and on my other partion "G" its saved in a normal folder.
How do I go about setting up the YAMMM feature for both locations.
I also have alot of series which are in .avi and also other video formats, will this function in MC work for that aswell?

Thanks

Yes but I need to redo this as I wrote that portion when MB used a different format.

Just add both folders to the Library tab as Movie locations.

The current version, v1, does not do do TV series, it is for movies only. For movies it can do any format that Media Center detects as a video.

Do you have resizing setup in Yammm? Depending on the size of your media collection I've seen some setups where Media Center will run out of available memory and clear the images (along w/ some other nasty side effects). If you don't, give Medium\92 a shot. If you do, let me know so I can help troubleshoot.

First of all, thanks for the quick reply...

Yes I did set it to "medium" and 92, but it still does the same.
If I set it to a lower value NOW, do I have to delete all the artwork manually and let yammm download it again or will it update the jpegs automatically?
