Obviously change the drive letter to reflect your installation.

Thank you SledgeDG. That did exactly what I need it to do.


DemonSeed, I will have to play around with your suggestions for the TV library. I am also going to have to spend some time reading up on DVR link you posted.

Thanks for all the help. Hopefully one day I can return the favor.

So I have attached 4 screen shots. Its what I have so far. I am just getting the hang of everything. So most of this will get redone at some point in time once I get further into customizing. I have to work on configuring TV shows still. Folder is there but haven't put anything in it yet to test. I have had a few issues with the wrong cover Art being pulled. One currently still giving me a issue is The Night Before Christmas. It is coming up as a western movie for some reason. I installed YAMMM and it pulls the same Cover Art for it as well. I guess I will have to just go out and get my own and put it into the folder.

Fun part of all this is once I get this all figured out I am going to Wipe the system and redo it all since I have installed and remove a lot different items. I want to make sure everything a get a good clean install for the final project. I also now need to setup and configure my first client and working on setting up shared playstate using this article.

Well i am rambling at this point in time. Thats again for all the help. Just wanted to update you on my progress.

I looked at the moviedb and see why it's pulling a western.
There is not a good poster for the night before christmas, so I went and found the book cover and cleaned it up some for you. You can get it here.

As for the info, you need to edit the xml in the movie folder and change the <TMDbID> to <TMDbID>39894</TMDbID> then refresh yammm and it should pull the right info for the movie. If not you can still go to the Movie on the DB and edit in the info your self

try media center master for meta data , i only use it for my movies data, once i sorted all my files its easy to stay on top of,
when it gives you the wrong data(rarely!) i put in a title i made up. it wont recognise it and gives you the option to enter the imdb number then you can find it manually ,failing thats if its a coverart you can find one in google images and name it folder and put it in the root folder of the movie
what i do personally is just drag the movie over to MCM manually and wait for it to start looking be sure to only have the movie name and year, not file type
MCM here

I will give MCM a try. I wanted to use a 3rd party program to store the meta data locally. Since I will be adding Multiple clients that will all access the same Movie Library, I figured having the meta data stored locally was the best route to go.

I have removed Yammm and I am installing MCM as I type.

I was able to use the image that you provided and that solved the problem. I also went in and changed the TMDbID as well. The only thing is now, is the main picture has changed, but the backdrop that comes up with I highlight the movie is still the old image. I know that it is MB doing this but not for sure how to change that. Should I just disable MB's meta data function for the moment? Renable it after I use MCM to get all of the Meta Data?

No, you'll need to add a backdrop.jpg to the movie folder then delete the image cache and it will be fixed.

I'm glad, the shortcut worked for you
BTW: I found out that on imdb queries they check the year as well, so in difficult cases, it makes perfect sense to put the year in the title like The Lost World (1992) or The Professional (1994)
