    Hi @Guzzi ,

    I had to uninstall and then reinstall MePo on my system. While I can still use the plugin to watch movies, the AMC Updater is not working as expected: all import options are now inactive. Any hint what I am doing wrong?

    Hi HTPCSourcer,
    if you click through the AMCU settings, most probably there is some invalid or missing settings - usually with a red exclamation mark - once those are fixed, import button becomes active. First to check might be the import path(es) on tab 'scan path and filters'.
    If you're unsure about your config, you might also simply recreate the settings for AMCupdater - this can be done in MyFilms setup - select your configuration name (if you have multiple), change to import tab and press "8re)create AMCUpdater default settings". You can also create a desktop icon there. Before you do so, check, that there is one or multiple 'movie scan path(es)' set there - those will be used for the created AMCupdater config too.

    Indeed, this field was empty. I entered the path and everything is working again.

    By the way: You would do the community a great favor if you updated the installer in the repository. :)

    You mean the mpe installer!? Repository has the latest package for download iirc. I have to check, if the update.xml now points to the new repo, as google code is readonly and can't be changed anymore ...

    Ah, you're of course correct(y). I didn't notice the update.
