use a proxy server to access the site. That should get around your isp blocking it.

Yeah I thought about that, but that won't help MCM pull metadata.

Does anyone know how to implement proxy server settings into MB or MCM? I know there is a way to add proxy server settings to dotnet framework, but it is complicated. I thought someone might have a clear cut method, other than the one outlined here Take the Burden Off Users with Automatic Configuration in .NET I thought that autoconfig tool offered would automatically apply the settings, it did not. It was a folder with some java script codes etc. I don't know why I am blocked from themoviedb.org. if I use a proxy site, I can access it, outside of that, no dice. So MCM, and MB are not pulling any metadata.

Zay I passed this along to my gurus and one of them had this to say.

"for media center you either have to setup a proxy in WMP or Internet Explorer. by default WMP points to the IE proxy settings. In MB itself there are no options but I assume it would just follow IE proxy settings"

I'm going to assume you know what he's talking about and know what to do. If not, he would like you to go to the CT and post your problem there so it might help others.

Thanks DS, yes I know what he means, but in order to do that I have to know a proxy server and it settings. I tried using the IP of one of the free proxy sites, but that did not work. I will contine to seek a solution.

Well I tried and tried, but no luck. I edit my IE settings to use a proxy server, MCM connects to themoviedb.org, but then an error is generated, (I think it times out). I even built my own proxy web server Zay's Proxy Server but that did not help. I will keep trying.

I have started to use the theme Simplicity for MediaBrowser and I have to say it's great! However just this small thing is bothering me so much. When I try to mark a show as watched under MediaBrowser with this theme applied no tick appears on the show or episode? Any ideas why?

Simplicity is a incomplete theme and looks like it may be that way for some time.
The author has been MIA for some time now and no sign of when he may return.

Thanks for the heads up DemonSeed. Is there a way to modify the theme to allow it to mark shows as being watched? If not, is there a similar theme for MediaBrowser that has the same kind of look which has the feature of being able to mark shows as watched?

I've no idea where to post this, but if anyone uses this type of application, can you please tell me if you have any problems changing the Calender, it refuses to move to 2010, even with new pics put in. Its definitely not user friendly.:devil:

cant connect to Youtube from Everio Mediabrowser
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...
