hi there sorry if this is a dumb question. I've just rebuilt my pc and now fanart handler does not seem to scrape my artists? when i go into configurator it says 752 artists 752 without fanart. am i doing something stupid here? its worked fine before with me and the albums are scraping fine. ive not changed any settings...

ok wierd it seems now that if i play the music in now playing it forces that one artist to get scraped. not sure i want to do this for all my artists :([DOUBLEPOST=1370935578][/DOUBLEPOST]also if i turn the scraper on manually from the conifgurator it doesnt seem to start

Just uninstalled fanart and deleted its databases from the program data folder. I ahd tried to reinstall it before but got an error about the databases still same problem. It finds the names but does not find the pictures for artists?

Ill delete the mp thumbs folder see if I can get it to rescan. Also is there a way to get it to display random fanart? And is the website still down?

    If you delete the mp thumbs folder, and htbackdrops is gone for good then you will lose all your music fanart.
