Actuality they did, and requested you post the true log file, instead of trying to put it all in the post in code block like you did.

If you could upload the log file somewhere and give a link to it, they should be able to point out what went wrong.

OMG There am I searching all over the net for a decent media browser and here I find it..
I tried the Movie database from Collectorz.com...useless for my collection (mostly TV shows) then I tried XBMC which isn't all that bad but still not exactly what I was looking for.
when I read your post I downloaded/installed it and there it was.
I have some minor issues with pics/Thumbs not all loading/showing but the better part of my collection is taken care of now
Thank you

If you would like to store your metadata localy, MB will use that info instead of waiting on content to be downloaded from the net.

There are a few tools out there available to use. Yammm (Yet Another Movie Metadata Manager), MCM (media Center Master), or Meta<Browser/>. Meta has two versions available, one free the other not.

Using a tool like one of these will vastly improve the quality of the images you see in MB and give you TOTAL control over what you do and dont want to see.

Hey... it doesn't matter. I succeeded to get my movie info and pics so i don't need media browser. I'm not quite in a mood figuring out what went wrong on installation...

Thats a shame as i am a mediabrowser convert (about 6 months now) and it is simply the best thing i have ever used for my movies ,
I have so many films i forget what some are about and just one click on the movie and i have the info i need sat there with a beautiful backdrop from the movie and pg rating file type and more ,you can browse for movies by genre and if you get adventurous you can have the movies actors details too ,
this helps ie you click on a pic of bruce willis it takes you to another page showing all the movies you have with brucie in them . it takes time and patience to set up your movie files and get the metadata (i use MCM) but when you have sorted it out then your not going to look back and now its easy to add another film and keep on top of the organising as the tricky part is the setting up at the begining.

I can only agree with boohbah.The initial setup is a bit confusing, but certainly no rocket science.
About 90% of mt collection was found and processed correctly..The rest needed a little tweaking (mostly renaming of tv show folders/episode clips) If there really is a movie or a TV show MCM can't find, even after changing the scraper, you could always collect the meta data by hand, now that you can see what's needed and how it is structured. (a few times I wasn't happy with the pics so I exchanged them for the ones I found in google images)
No more clicking through endless folders....and it even tells me which episodes I haven't watched yet
My collection has never been so well organized! Thanks for all yhe good tips here!
