Larry...had a play...really good.

Ok, suggestions and questions...

1 - I notice it downloads all fanart images for each movie...did i miss if you could choose which one you wanted before download? if not could this feature be added? Would really speed up the downloads. If you could do this could you tie it to the xlobby xml movie database so you had a fanart entry, would then just need to add a "fanart" text in skin for it to show up?

2 - Where it can't match a movie due to the title not being an exact match...is it possible for it to offer suggestions to what it thinks it may be? or if not add an option to edit the movie title to see if it helps with the match?

Great work any way...

I have had the same thoughts but I thought it would be better to get something out than keep adding features. I need a little break from it but will add those features next.

I spent more hours than expected developing this. Then the weather turned nice in Chicago and my wife brought out the list she began building at the beginning of winter. Oh man am I going to be busy. I should be able to get to it in the next few nights.

That looks great.

Did you put a tag in the xlobby movie db like <fanart>? I have designed the changes based on your recommendations. I will be out for a week so I will get back on it when I return.

Hi Larry...

Yeah i created a new fanart field in the movie db and then browsed to each fanart image i wanted. This was done on my skinning machine as i only have a fraction of the movies stored on that machine so only took a while to do. All my media now reside on my server. Waiting to see if you automate the linking to the db?...

Another suggestion i have if possible is if you run the search again the program ignores movies it has already processed so it only pulls data for new movies. Maybe an option of YES/NO for entire database search or only new items search?

Thanks again
Andy

few more screens...coverflow
