Maybe try what Paco said in his post.

I say stable as quoted from this site http://t3ch.yi.se/

I tried starting the script from file manager, but it results in the same thing. I'm not sure how to "reset all settings". Is there any gui to view the settings on the xbox? The only way I see of editing them is by manually connecting with a computer and editing settings.txt.

you are absolutely right when you say that it is stable release, but there has been so much change since that in XBMC code, I am not sure why the script s not running

you can try and manually delete settings.txt under /userdata/script_data/XBMC Lyrics that should reset it to default.

Anyone with XBOX using this can confirm that it works?

---(Using PM3.HD and windows XP) Ok so I go into an album, play the first song, turn visualization on, click on menu, go to top choice and lyrics are pulled and saved. then I need to press esc, go into menu again or hit next song button then go into menu, go to top for lyrics wait.. then it saves that song.... 200 albums x 12 songs doing this is VERY very long. I'd like to parse it all at once.

---Correct.. being that websites providing lyrics change like this time.. and possiblly in the future not working again.. would be great to get it all once now


Try the new Batch Download script http://www.xbmc.org/forum/showthread.php?p=425850

Is this compatible with the Xbox? If yes, it would mean xbmclyrics would be quite functional. Ie, download lyrics using the batch download script and display using xbmclyrics. The problem at the moment is that xbmclyrics on the xbox is screwing up downloading the lyrics.

Hey Amet, I tried your SVN 1.7.6 release with no success. I had to go back to the 1.7.4 release and it all works fine. Not sure what is different.

I'm on Windows 7 32-bit. XBMC SVN 24041-DX. I have it configured to get the lyrics from Lyricwiki.org.

Can you post the log ?

What is not working? Is it crashing?

I have just uploaded version 1.7.7 to SVN, it should address all the issues now . I am sorry that I keep on updating it every day , hopefully it is all OK now.

Hello Amet, 1.7.7 works as intended. Nice work.

I do have a question regarding searches. Many searches come up with 'no lyrics'. Some are for established artists that have lyrics posted on LyricWiki.org. Any idea why the following searches come back empty? Here are a few examples (the first three are from 'hits' albums):

ZZ Top - La Grange, Cheap Sunglasses
Crowded House - Don't Dream It's Over
Sarah MacLachlan - Adia, Sweet Surrender
Van Halen - (any song with an apostrophe in it....e.g. Jamie's Cryin', I'll Wait, etc...)
Artists with non-english letters in names: Queensrÿche, Marco Antonio Solís, Mötley Crüe, etc...

Hi,

ZZ Top - La Grange, Cheap Sunglasses correct song name according to LyricWiki is Cheap Sunglasses, http://lyrics.wikia.com/ZZ_Top:Cheap_Sunglasses

as for the others, it has to do with apostrophe, if you can try this for the songs that have apostrophe and non english letters and let me know if it works, I can then implement it in XBMC Lyrics.

Thanks
Zeljko
