You beat me to it Demon. We also need more info on how you have things setup so we can know how to address the issue. Do you see folders in the MB config tool? Are your movie folders named EXACTLY like the movie?

Hey, Tnx for the speedy reply. :)

Yes, everything is as its suppose to be, set-up has been done correctly and media providers are turned on.
Plug-in for downloading metadata is also downloaded and installed.

Still nothing.

I also checked that the tick is made in MC setting for automatic download of media info.

Looking back at all this it "should" work but for some reason it doesn't.

Do you recommend an reinstallation and set-up?

Windows 7 (build 7260)

Have you tried a 3rd party app to see if it will download the required metadata and then shows in mediabrowser?

Also a silly question but you are trying to view your TV shows via the plug in and not the movie or videos buttons on MC?

Hey Stomper, what do you see here : c:\programdata\mediabrowser\startup?
Also can I get a screenshot of your settings in MB config tool? Please layout your folder structure. A few posts back I put a link to a .vf file, download it and edit it to suit your needs, and see if that helps.

Sory for the late reply, been away for weekend.

@Bones and Zay : Thanks for the advice but I got a bit fedup so I unstalled media browser and did everything over, File2Folder setup ect.

So after a few hour of playing around it finally started to work, another thing I realized was that media browser must be open for the metadate to be downloaded, is this normal?

I don't no what I did wrong in the beginning but I'm amped no that it works, REALLY AWESOME.
It even downloads info for every episode sepperatly

So any other tricks you know about relating to media centre?

Last question, I saw there's a question earlier in the thread were it was ask if it's possible to click on a episode of a TV series and when its's done the next episode will automatically start. Any luck with that, because that is the only anoying thing I came accross so far, esspecially if some of the episodes are only 20min long

Are there any solutions which can be added to ones provided so far and that'll work with Media Browser?

Thanks All

The new themes of MB will play your series either randomly, unwatched, or play all. I use the chocolate theme, and when I go to one of my tv series folders, and I hit play button for the main folder for the series, MB then asks if I want either play all, play random, or play unwatched from the series. I chose my option, then press Ok, and voila. YAMMM also creates playlists for your tv series as well. If you don't want to use MB for that, then you can add your tv series to the videos library in MCE, and then play from there as a playlist.

Do you have the latest version of MB, the latest comes with the themes in it. Open the MB config tool, click on plugins you should see all the themes in there. If they are not, click the more plugins button, and then you see a slew of plugins for you to choose from. Select the ones you want, then click install. once all your themes have been installed, click on the display tab, and select the one you want to use in the Theme Settings section, then click save. NOTE: You can also choose your theme from within MB as well.
