You can update the scraper scripts to solve the problem of missing info or missing artwork without updating the MovingPictures plugin itself.Yeh i think that way as well if it ain't broke,dont fix it,but i would have close to 800 movies.My main fear is i will stuff the upgrade up and that's a lot of time to get all that info back in plus over 40 tv series.Lately the movies gets the info but not the cover so i get the cover manually apart from that its great.I might ghost it to another drive then have a go
And if you back both Team MediaPortal folders up, and you screw something up, then you can simply restore the backup for full recovery. For Vista/Win7 those folders are "C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal" and "C:\Program Files\Team MediaPortal" or with (x86) if you got 64-bit version of Windows. For Windows XP it's in your All Users folder somewhere, you can use the shortcuts in your start menu entry to locate them.
Including all the artwork, the folder sizes do add up, but if you have the free space for a backup that way it is the most idea way to ensure no problems on restoring. If you are low on space then backing up the plugins folder and the respective database file (movingpictures.db3) is usually enough (with exception of skin files).
