I'm not sure if this is the right forum to ask, but I noticed one of my movies is not being matched despite having the same name as IMDB and themoviedb, followed by a space and the year in brackets. If this happens, what should I do?

    Hi anony when this happen, just add the imdb database code in the file name. This code is in the internet adresse bar when you look at the movie details.

    For Example. Dark knight, I'll name my file, The.Dark.Knight.FRENCH.x264-1080p-tt0468569.mkv

    Or you can just go into the config screen and manually approve the correct match (or search if it's not listed). The system is designed so that you should never have to rename your files. If you are unfamiliar with how the importer works check out this wiki article.

    If you can not close MediaPortal (say wife will not let you, because she is watching her shows), then you can also find all this information inside the log file, which you can view with MediaPortal running. I use concurrent RDP myself, but another solution is to 'share' the LOG folder.

    Start Menu -> All Programs -> MediaPortal -> User Files

    Windows Explorer will then open and you will see a "log" folder. Right click it and share this on your network.

    Then from another system you can navigate to \\MEPO-BOX\log and open movingpictures.log file. Open it in notepad and you want to look for:

    MovieImporter]: No exact match for​

    You do need to have MediaPortal configuration set to 'Debug' for log verbosity level then if memory serves me. It is also possible to batch-script this via:

    Code:
    @Echo Off
    find "MovieImporter]: No exact match for " [URL='https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/file://\\MEPO-Box\log\movingpictures.log']\\MEPO-Box\log\movingpictures.log[/URL]
    pause

    Enjoy.

    If anyone ever experiences the above, I found a fix. Removing and reinstalling MP-TVSeries fixed it. It must have gotten corrupted during the reinstall of MP. I also had to do the same with TRAKT which had some issues too that were not apparent at the time. All is well once again. :cool:

This has not been tested with multi languages and it has been configured for my personal collection. I'm hoping it will work...
