Hey adis sorry for your dilema. I ran into the same issue for my dragon ball series. I had to manually put backdrop.jpg and folder.jpg files in each episode folder to get rid of the blue icons. Unfortunately some tv series' metadata can be pulled, while some cannot. It is kind of luck of the draw on the series you want matadata for. My boondocks suffered the same issue. I think (not sure), version 2 of yammm will address these kinds of issues. Hope this sheds some light on your situation. As to your IMDB issue for media center master, when the app ask for the id#, simply go to imdb.com, and type in the movie in question. when imdb finds it, look in the address bar and you will see a string of characters that contain two letters and some numbers. It might look something like this: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0409459/ observe red bold string (I made it easy for you to recognize). That is the id and link for watchmen. Hope this helps.
Oh one other thing, it seems your naming convention of your folders maybe wrong, that is why MCM cannot provide metadata for your anime movies. If anime movies is a folder, then that is too vague to find metadata for. It seems anime movies is a parent folder, then all other sub folders need to be actual names of anime movies eg anime movies\ninja scroll, with ninja scroll being the name of an actual anime movie. In that case MCM would look for metadata for ninja scroll and not anime movies. I attached a screenshot of how you need to setup your folder scan for MCM, because looking at your screenshot, they seem to be setup wrong.

Thank you Zay.

I already found out that i have to looking for this NO on imdb.com.
And also found out that some of my series (Big Bang Theory,Lost ...) havent metadata.
Also my icons in menu are ok - just swich on PC this morning and they are already there

Anyway i want to ask - is there any other database where can i download metadata instead of dvdxml.com ?????

and my other question - i think that i have to follow picture size of cover which id like to put in MB am i right? Some of my cover are really nice - with black edges and some arent.

Not sure of any other site that you can manually download metadata, I just rely on yammm or MCM to do that for me. As for your picture issue, I use the stark cover application to take care that for me as well. Demonseed would also be a better source to help you solve that issue. I am more of a tech or programmer guy, he is big on graphics and such.

Is there a program out there that will scrape actor images and place them into your 'imagesbyname' folder?

Media Browser does that quite well. Media center master does a great job as well. You just need to make sure you enter the correct path in the programs.

Hey guys the movie db website is down, how are you all getting metadata in the mean time. With the site being down, MCM can even scrape metadata. It is only able to get synopsis, but no images.

I use Everio Mediabrowser to download my JVC videos. I can upload directly to You Tube on it but since I started using W7 (64 bit home) I get an error it cannot connect to Internet. It works fine on my other laptop that runs XP so I'm thinking it is a W7 issue not my software. I had this...
