I'll report the issue with themoviedb.org and they will pull the cover. Sometimes it is a false alarm other times it can be an embedded threat. I'll working hard to get the new version done. In the new version if you delete a cover art for whatever reason it will pull the next available one or you can manually pick it.

Edit: I checked the jpg against several AV scanners and did not get any threats reported. I'm inclined to believe it a false alarm. I'll still report it to themoviedb and let them decide.

Mikinho - you star, i thought it was probably a false alarm, i thought it may have something to do with the name?
only guessing though.

btw, Some additional Media Center add-ins are available at Mikinho | Projects. I still have 5 or 6 left to add but thought I'd mention. The dev builds will be available at this site as well.

Either Yammm is not configured properly or an error is occurring. Can you check your Event Log for errors and post a screenshot of the Metadata tab in Yammm Config.

I hope that the attachments will help.

They do help, you have Windows 7 Media Center selected but you do not have any user accounts enabled. Check "alex" and the other account "D37X" in the account list.

btw, I am changing the way this works. I found a setting that lets Media Center user account share metadata. I'll be using that instead.

Hi,

First of all, I'm really pleased with Yammm and how it performs, but I have one niggly problem that I can't figure out.
My movies all get the correct thumbnails & backgroun info ok, but TV programs don't.

eg. I have a folder called: Father Ted Season 1. I've checked thetvdb.com database and can find the correct listing (Father Ted: Series Info), but Yammm isn't picking this up. What am I doing wrong?

I have my movies and tv shows in the same directory on my hard drive, and all are ripped into VIDEO_TS folders using DVD Shrink. I'm using Win 7 Media Centre to play.

Thanks!

Not sure it supports TV series yet - I think v2.0 will have that functionality.

Check out mikinho's site.

TV support is not enabled until v2. It was due for release on the 12th but due to family emergency it was delayed until this Sunday. You'll be able to download from Mikinho and be notified via twitter at Mikinho (mikinho) on Twitter

Thanks CBers, you beat me to the response.
