I think I figured out why some folders were missed. I compared the ones changed to the ones not changed, there are folder.jpg in the ones changed, and no folder.jpg in the ones not changed. Now I could be wrong, I thought that MB puts a folder.jpg in all the movie folders it finds, then again on second thought, MB might be pulling the pictures from the cache folder. If I manually put a folder.jpg in the folders missed by stark, then that should solve the issue. But, the ones that do have folder.jpg files in them, didn't they get put in there by MB? The attachment shows some of what was missed. One other thing Demon, I had to redo my HTPC (installed a full version of W7), and I forgot to save my IBN folder. Your link to it does not work, can you hook me up? Have you tried the sleep timer plugin?

Yeah you must have the folder.jpg in your folders for Stark to work. If you let Media Browser fetch your Metadata you will not be able to use Stark. MB put everything it fetches in it's Cache. The only way is to use a metadata scraper like meta<browser/>, that will download you metadata to your movie folders. And then MB will use that info in place of its own.

You can get a new IBN set up here. http://www.mediabrowser.tv/forum/vie...hp?f=10&t=4501

I dont know what sleep timer your talking about?

Oh ok, I will run metabrowser. I see they revamped the whole IBN project, it seems I need to download seperate folders now, year, people, genre etc. Is that the case? Here is the link to the sleep timer. Windows 7 Media Center Sleep Timer Plugin I have not been to get the custom timer to work yet. I will work on that today. Thanks again. PS. I just caught your tutorial on changing the MCE logo, nice. I posted my new one. BTW, I downloaded the lastest MB, and noticed it only has two themes, default and diamond, when in default theme, my play trailer icon does not show. it shows in diamond theme. Have you or anyone else noticed that?

If you need help with a plugin you can send the author a Private Message by clicking on there name. But you will need to be a member of the Media Browser Forum to use the PM links.

Default theme does not support trailers. The Vanilla theme has moved to a plugin so that the author can keep it updated with out needing to what untill and new release of MB. Most new themes will now be a plugin.

Media browser + Meta browser are a must have for media Center IMO.

My only complaint about media browser itself, Is the way it fetches metadata. id rather have more control of what is added.

So my personal pref. is disable media browsers fetching ability and do it manually with Metabrowser.
Manage the all backgrounds/coverart/ ImagesByNAme etc through it.

Whatever your preference, Media Browser is a great plug-in IMO.

Yeah that was many hours building the folders and icons and backdrops and metadata. The video was the easy part! I used Camtasia, and it was very easy!

Be sure to sign up to the new plugin forum and give your support!
