    All of a sudden, some shows with an apostrophe in the title render correctly, some don't, the apostrophe is displayed as "'". "Marvel's Jessica Jones" is fine, but "Marvel's Agents of SHIELD" is not. See the attached screenshot. I'm guessing this is an issue with the data coming from thetvdb.com, since it affects some shows but not others, and the plugin hasn't changed recently, but any idea what to do about it?

    Go to the source on www.thetvdb.com and copy the apostrophe from "Jessica Jones" to the ones that isn't working and the refetch the series in MP.

    (the problem should be that there are used to different apostrophes, even they "look" the same)

    Unfortunately the records are locked on thetvdb, so ordinary users like me can't make that edit. I can post on their forums (once I get approved for posting) and try to get a mod to make the necessary changes, but since the records look ok when viewed on thetvdb website, they may not consider it an error.

    Okay... If its looked on www.thetvdb.com it makes it a little more problematic...
    But I will recommend a change request on the thetvdb forum (they usually answer very quickly), before code change in MP TV-series

    Hmm, since I took that screenshot, "Marvel's Jessica Jones" is now borked as well, so at least it is consistent.

    Thanks ltfearme (y).

    A bunch of other people reported this in thetvdb forums yesterday while I was waiting to be approved, it seems to be affecting a whole bunch of shows (including Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan, from your current trakt banner), so at least they are aware at that end.

    Just keep in mind that the eHome transceiver can only be used by one program at a time. Since IRSS needs to control the blaster, IRSS also has to control the receiver. That means HID and any other remote settings must be disabled in MediaPortal Configuration.

    Moving-Pictures stores volume labels and serial numbers as well on drives, so you can connect a drive as X: and reconnect another drive as X: as well and it will be able to keep the imports separated. The logic was meant for optical discs, as they are different discs for the same drive-letter, but the same method is applied to...
