    Looking to migrate from WMC and MyMovies -> MediaPortal2 :)

    My movie folder structure is as follows.....

    E: -> Blu-Ray -> A
    ->B
    ->C
    -> DVD -> A
    -> B
    -> C
    ->HD-DVD -> A
    -> B
    -> C

    I think you get the idea ;)

    I've added a media source of my Blu-Ray folder. Out of 283 titles, it only imported 169 :( I've spent the last couple of hours reading through previous threads and help files, but they mostly refer to MP1 and plugins that aren't available for MP2.



    So where am i going wrong? I assume that MP2 lifts the movie title from the folder and some films are obviously in a folder that has a different name to official title, such as Fast & Furious 8....my folder is named "Fast and Furious 8" and according to TheMovieDB.org it is "The Fate Of The Furious"

    I've read about NFO and XML files, can these help in this situation?

    Thanks in advance.

    Ok, so i tagged all 680 movies using TinyMediaManager and it downloaded all the info / art / etc. Now i have around 520 movies under "movies" and 90 movies under "video".

    If i disable metadata internet scraping then MP2 refuses to use the NFO file :( and if i enable metadata internet scraping it pulls the incorrect data from the internet. The movie is found, but i only have the title and nothing else, no plot, no art, no anything. The only movies affected by this are DVD, not BR.

    I'm obviously going wrong somewhere.

    Hello, which MP2 version are you using?

    Generally speaking you don't need any additional plugin to have your data correctly recognized.

    Can you please upload the log files after your import. You find a LogCollector icon on your desktop.

    Everything, the complete zip file, if not too large.
    In case of size problems, server.log and server-error.log are most important, but with all suffixes.

    Your logs are full of errors
    It seems your data base is corrupted. Can you try following:
    • Stop the server service with the server monitor you find on your desktop
    • go to "C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MP2-Server\Database" and move all content to a folder "backup" (so you do not loose any data)
    • Start the server service again and reimport one of your movie folders
    If the problem persists, please write here again and a dev needs to help you.
    I'm leaving to airport in 30 minutes and will be off for 1 month. Just in case you wonder why I do not reply any more ;)
