What program are people using to setup there movies cover art and information to be saved into an NFO file for easier scraping in the future?
The reason i ask is because im fed up with sorting my collections covers and age certifications and then i setup another client or move the movies to a file server and have to re-setup all the information again, which is obviously tedious.
It would be much simpler to have a file to scrape locally (NFO) and all the information then be the same no matter when or where i setup a client and the time frame would be dramatically reduced to get up and running, i have heard people say save your database file and copy it over after a re-install of Mepo, but this does not cover the issue when you change the path to the movies or in some cases when setting up a new client install.

I have heard of MyMovies and used it a few years back when i tested XBMC out, but see in a thread on this forum that the information was not all being Scraped from the NFO properly into Mepo, is this still the case and is there any other or better way to create the NFO files?


Thanks

Atomic

ok tested using MyMovies and its creation of NFO files and picked the options in the mediaportal config myvideos `use internal NFO scraper only` and do not use database, but it seems to be still getting the information from elsewhere as it uses a different cover than what i have picked and info?
Can anyone confirm this behaviour?
attached an NFO created using MyMovies for your inspection.

mm may have some progress any old pictures in the same location as the movie is being used instead of the one picked in the NFO file. will update later if i get more success.

looking at it now, scanning movies into database now so i can then look at them in this program with a view to creating the NFOs. Will let you know my thoughts in due course, thanks for the link, never seen it before (y)

    Ok, good it helped. Idially server and client should always have the same version, which doesn't mean different versions can never work. But could be also, that you tried to install the right server version and the installation was not completed and corrupted as @Brownard realized missing files.

    I've been using version 1.2.2.0 for years and have found no need to upgrade to newer version. I hate it that skins loose compatibility with almost every new version. And new skins are too 'fancy' for my taste. I use a customized version of the default wide skin with only Videos and TV in the main menu. I use mediaportal for recording...
