    General Info
    This forum section is used for development and support of Movie Info grabbers.

    After MP v1.0.0.0 R2 was released, an update feature was added to the configuration and all integrated grabbers have been removed. Most of them are already available as grabber script. If you miss one please request the grabber in this thread.

    @Users
    Each grabber has it's own thread.
    Support, questions and bug reports related to a specific grabber should be posted in it's thread.

    @Script Authors / devs
    Please create a new thread for each script.

    If want to get your script included in the update-feature, please make a post in this thread, so that a team member can add the script.

    If you already created a thread for your script in another forum section, please drop me a line and i will move it to this forum section.

    Important development notes:
    • If you want to install a script manually, for testing or debugging, copy the script file to
      %MediaPortalConfig%\scripts\MovieInfo\
      To find the correct folder (using vista or xp) simply press "User Config files" on the top left of MediaPortal Configuration window.
    • You always have to set ImdbUrl.database in FindImdb to the same string which is the filename of your script (without ".csscript") otherwise your script file won't work.

    ratings, votes and age rating

    I recently added all my movies and never noticed afterwards that the rating and the votes were not updated. Is there anyway to refresh these 2 fields only. The 300 movies in the list all previously selected from imdb with the grabber.

    I am hoping there is a unique key that will assist in refreshing the data without changing cover art or reselecting the title. The alternate is to manual refresh and reselect every movie.

    Any help appreciated
