    Not a bug, you just have to go into the plugin, MovingPictures for example and in the main movie list, press your Info/F9 to bring up the context menu. In the bottom, you should see an Extended Info option, which will bring up the file name for the SubCentral plugin. This is also available for MP TV-Series btw.

    Something very weird just happened after starting MP on my DEV PC:
    11-49-30.png 11-50-00.png

    Font seems really messed up for some weird reason i can't figure out.
    Running Windows 10, and it used to work fine till this morning. My HTPC doesn't suffer from this issue (for now).

    Attempts to fix it (without success):
    • Re-install the fonts (except Roboto Regular, since that's 'in use').
    • Clear cache
    • reboot
    • re-install skin
    • re-install MP
    • downgrade MP version
    • Copy HTPC install to Desktop

    Anybody else seeing this?

    I just fully deleted the fonts from the registry, and didn't install them again, with good results:

    So let's see if rebooting & rebuilding the font cache helps and then install them again.

    It seem duplicates are created during install. I noticed those when i opened a command prompt and searched for the installed fonts in C:\Windows\Fonts
    upload_2015-8-19_13-56-10.png

    The installed fonts for Apollo are:
    • FiraSansOT (Light & Regular)
    • HelvLight Regular (search for 'HELN*' in command prompt!)
    • Roboto Regular (search for 'Media*' in command prompt!)

    so now the steps to fix this:

    1. Open a command prompt with admin rights
    2. Navigate to C:\Windows\Fonts
    3. Then delete all Apollo fonts with the commands:
      del FiraSans*.ttf
      del HEL*.ttf
      del MediaPortal*.ttf
    4. Exit the command prompt and reboot your PC
    5. After reboot, open Windows Explorer and navigate to C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\Skin\Apollo\MPDefaultFonts
    6. Install all skin fonts (right click > Install)
      Fonts can be found @: C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\Skin\Apollo\MPDefaultFonts

    And all should be good again ;)

    Followed this and still have the same issue, then removed all and started mp to make sure all gone which was confirmed as i had default fonts instead. Installed again still no different after clearing cache etc, checked fonts dir only one font for each listed correctly :confused:
