These parameters are registered in FanartHandler.xml. But periodically, for some reason, a re-recording of the biography of some artists (about 30%) takes place with a description of one musical group. I use MusicInfoHandler returns biographies back , plus some artists have information in Russian.

    I have a question: can Media Portal without the Fanart Handler plugin receive biographies of artists? When I make a forced receipt of information about an artist, the information received is different from that which is collected automatically.
