    Hello,

    i don't know if this is a global problem.
    But when i add new media files and the daily import starts, then MP2 doesn't import all meta-data.
    In most cases the description and the title be missing.

    If i start manual the import, in most cases the import is complete. (In one of ten cases is the same problem like the automatic import)

    Can anyone retrace this problem or have the same problem?




    Best Regards
    Daniel

    PS: I solve the problem, when i move the incomplete folders from the import-folder, start a new import, move the folders back into the import-folder and start a new import. Then all meta-data are imported.

    Hi.
    Do you use .nfo or online grabbing for metadata? If it is online grabbing then it is possible that your internet connection didn't work as expected in the middle of the night...
    Normally missing metadata should be added on next importer run, if you use online grabbing.

    I'm not using those nightly automated import at all. I prefer the shares watcher. If this did not work properly (it's a Windows thing and not that reliable) I trigger a refresh manually soon after I've added new media... So I don't need to wait until next day to be able to see and play my new media...

    I'm using nfo-files.
    The Shares Watcher are activated too.

    Now i deactivate the automatic import, cause it takes to much time to switch and import the folder with media files. (My import always run 10 to 20 minutes)
