If you have an XBMC unit in your living room and in your bedroom those two installations of XBMC don’t talk to each other.As a result if you watch some of your TV shows in the living room and some in the bedroom then the marked-as-watched function in XBMC will only show you what you watched on that specific television set.
Note: This how-to guide was originally published in September of 2011 and detailed how to set up whole-house media syncing for XBMC “Dharma” 10.0.
We’ve updated the guide for the newer, more user-friendly My SQL integration included in XBMC “Eden” 11.0.
Also, how do I get XBMC to gather info from scrapers?
I have selected import but nothing seems to happen.
This script will automatically download all of the fanart for every TV show (thetvdb.com) and movie (themoviedb.org) in your XBMC library and place it in an 'extrafanart' directory to be used by skins which support this feature.
This script can automaticly download all available artwork for your movies/tvshows in your library. Each Movies and TV Show must have it's own subfolder!!
For Windows Media Center Movie Library to be able to display metadata and cover art, each movie file must be stored in an individual folder of the same name with an to run the process.
This will open a Command window and move your files.
Or, in my case, you’ve been using windows samba-based streaming and want to move to the much more efficient NFS streaming protocol (see the comparison detailed in this post).
The simple way to change file locations is just to remove your old library, move the content, and then rescan the new destination to recreate your library in the new location.
If you use the Movie Library in Windows 7 Media Center to access and view your movie collection, you know that the interface leaves a little to be desired.
