Yes.. I also noticed that TVDB webside has changed many things :twisted:
Than i have tried to get some infos with the TVDB xbox scraper but that didnt work :(
I hope that someone can solve that problem once more :) :)

TMDB scraper only finds some of my movies - but not everything..
Perhaps IMDB works better?! I still have to try that.

Hope this can be resolved soon as I still love using my old Xbox :)

Grupy just PMed me, let's try and have a look, fingers crossed :-)

Although for larger libraries and accidental wiping it's probably to use a library manager to generate the metadata files (.nfo, poster etc) next to the media files so they can be imported back very quickly.

Or it can be exported and imported back, even if slightly outdated would save some time.

I appreciate the reply back and again apologies again for the PM.

I have everything on my XBOX HDD already so in order to use the EMM option, I would need to transfer everything from my XBOX to another HDD on my PC and then run the scan as I dont think EMM can connect to my XBOX and scrape everything on there.

I hope there is a way to fix the scrapers so I can simply scan my movies and TV shows straight from my XBOX but failing to do so this, I suppose this another solution (moving forward).

I used EMM and was able to scrape all movies and TV shows in my Library locally before using FXP to send the files back. I noticed posters and thumbs arent showing up automatically when I scanned my library again on my XBOX. Is there a quick manual way to fix this or should I just wait for the scapers (TMDB and TVDB) to be fixed so I can scrape directly off my XBOX again?

Oh, that is good for now (Y)

I'm not sure whether that is something that might have change in Kodi since or in Ember Media Manager, maybe give us a list of files that have been generated for one video in particular so we can look at.

Maybe still set the Content Type and TMDB as a scraper and try scanning one and see if the thumb gets updated from the newly generated files by EMM. https://www.xbmc4xbox.org.uk/wiki/Set_C ... o_Library)

Alternatively, you can use the Addons > Programs > Addons4Xbox Installer to install this Thumbnails plugin we wrote that has a Clean function that might help it recreate the thumbs on next scan. See more on this forum page: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=3036&p=23752#p23752
