    I tried it with the last stable version and the latest test version.

    All shows are proper identified and even the fanart, banner or episode image names are pulled from thetvdb.com, but they are never downloaded. Instead I have a 43 bytes file for each image with the filename from thetvdb.com. On closer inspection this file is a transparent gif.

    I tried it with a fresh install of MediaPortal under Vista and XP. Same result. I also disabled all firewall and anti-virus software. Still nothing gets downloaded.

    The log itself also doesn't show any downloading or error information on debug level. It's like instead of trying to download the identified artwork a transparent gif is used.



    Any suggestions?

    I found the issue. It's my installed Adblocker that interferes. I put thetvdb.com on the White List and now it works.

    Do you have any ant-banner software? Kaspersky Antivirus? If so, you'll have to add thetvdb site to "trusted" or "white list"
    Try to choose "Air date" sorting instead of "DVD order"

    I had the exact same thing. It's part of the Anti-Spy > Anti-Banner function in Kaspersky.
    :D

    Bumping this, still doesn't work. But switching the - for a / in a browser works as sogge said.

    something that's need fixing perhaps ?

  • About The Project

    The vision of the MediaPortal project is to create a free open source media centre application, which supports all advanced media centre functions, and is accessible to all Windows users.

    In reaching this goal we are working every day to make sure our software is one of the best.

             

  • Support MediaPortal!

    The team works very hard to make sure the community is running the best HTPC-software. We give away MediaPortal for free but hosting and software is not for us.

    Care to support our work with a few bucks? We'd really appreciate it!
