I've recently tried the upgrade of Mediaportal to 1.25 and come across a strange occurance. All my movie DVD covers and backdrops have gone. Completely. The folders which held them are now empty.

It seems the folder these files are now stored has changed following the upgrade, but rather than move everything from one location to the other, it seems the installer simply deleted everything.

That's nearly 2000 movies that I now have to manually re-select everything for - which is not the greatest situation, but possible. Unfortunately - it seems there's also been another change. The scrapers available now don't find nearly half of the options previously available. Most movies are not only finding maybe 4 or 5 covers instead of nearly 50 - some now find none at all, or wrong language versions.

How do I get the scrapers back to pre-1.25 normality? Please advise. Thanks.

    What version was the update from? You use MyVideoPlugin or MovingPictures or MyFilms plugin? When MP install, DeployTools make backup of Mediaportal user folder, look at Program Data\Team Mediaportal\ folder ...

    What scrapper you use?

    Too late to do that backup - but I'll bear it in mind for future updates.

    In terms of scrapers - just the defaults ad IMDB+. Same before as after.
    I am using MovingPictures - again settings are as default, both before and after.

    Back-up is done automatically and it has all the thumbs, look in the folder C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal, there will be a folder with back-ups and the name Media Portal and the installation date.

    About logs:
    A lot of Db errors, look like, DB corrupted, or no free space or no Write right ...

    You have old MovingPictures version:

    It's not an issue with IMDb+, but with the internal imdb.com scraper that is still active, and concurrent access causes a crash, and then unexpected results. Verifying MediaPortal Extension Updater shows no plugins that require updating is critical step that appears to have been skipped after installing MediaPortal 1.25.0 Pre.

    So right now the firemen are getting blamed for the water damage while the entire house is still on fire :rolleyes:

    It is possible IMDb+ did not update as sometimes Moving-Pictures goes crazy on the script-table. In those rare cases when you have issues, first check the IMDb+ plugin, and look at the info page to see what current version of the IMDb+ Scraper-Script is installed, and make sure it lines up to the current published version at GitHub.

    As of this moment it is v4.10.5
