Hi!

When I import IMDB-infos on my-videos I get the requested infos + multiple covers! But I have already saved covers by myself (cover-file-name is the same as the video-file-name) and I don't want these downloaded covers because in most case they have less quality and or are not the same as mine.

Is it possible to set the IMDG-Grab funktion to not download any covers?

please help!

    Check out MovingPictures plugin, it gives you more control of what should be downloaded and what not, it let's use reuse existing artwork.

    thanks! i've tested myfilms and moving pictures but none of them works like I want it to.

    1. I want to have "folder-view": browse through videos like in explorer, and only myvideos supports this (afaik), because I have films with multiple parts (I mean trilogys for example like Matrix 1,2,3 ect.) in an own folder.

    2. I don't want to have that IMDB renames all films. F.e. Star-Wars Episode 4 should keep its name, but IMDB rename it to "Krieg der Sterne". This happens on much films and there I would have to re-rename it. Its too much work. The whole solution should be easy to use.

    My HTPC is a standalone Item. When I load a new film in my movie-archive I don't want to have to close Mediaportal, open Config and update the Database manually. Everything should be arranged via OSD-Menu.

    Sorry for the late response. In my experience, the EPG grabbing of a single transponder takes 2 to 3 minutes. Afterwards it takes 1 to 2 minutes to write the data to disk. To speed up the EPG stuff (not only writing but also reading the EPG guide in MediaPortal), I changed the program table (and only that table) from InnoDB to...

    Hello!!! I use a handy app called catchin' sync to roughly check the AV sync of audio/video on my HTPC/TV. It's not as accurate as a dedicated opto-electronic calibrator but it's more than adequate for this application and much better than trying to do things by eye (even when the lack of sync is massively obvious, subjective...
