it would be great if this can be made a bit more user freindly for helix, a bit more like artwork downloader that downloads fanart/discart etc straight to the artist folder

Yeah, never had any success with this. Every version I've ever tried it on just crashes or sits there doing nothing. Doesn't work at all with Kodi Helix.

Hi, I have to say great addon. Hope some one can help me, I'm running Gotham 13.2 and CDart 4.0.5.

I have scraping 7000 albums for 2 days, now I am ready to download fanarts, thumbs, etc... but I can't select all my artists, its been selected 77 but not for me!!! how can I modify this?,

How can I select all my artists? I cannot find a way

Thanks in advance

Having the same problem . Flat our doesn't work in Kodi | Helix RC2 or prior Helix builds for that matter. Error log indicate the following: WindowsError: (183, 'Cannot create a file when that file already exists', u'C:\\Users\\Helix\\AppData\\Roaming\\Kodi\\userdata\\addon_data\\script.cdartma​nager\\tempxml')

Deleting this folder does not have a positive effect....

For the love of me i cant figure this out. everytime i launch cdART i have a different experience. (Mostly it freezes - because it doesnt show anything that its doing anything)

steps on what im doing:
* update my library
* start cdART Manager - First question: why i cant navigate the cdART with my keyboard? I can only navigate with mouse so i have to enable it.
* I navigate to ALBUM CDARTS > AUTOMATIC DOWNLOADS click it and then i have no indication if its running or not.

due to frustration i did uninstall and reinstall. clean my music library and add the music library again. Then i use the cdART update manager to build the database. After its finished the indication LOCAL ARTIST, LOCAL DISCS and LOCAL CDARTS are still blank.

I dont know what im doing wrong Angry

All i want to do is to have a fanart and a cd art while im playing my songs on my HTPC.

seems like the guy who developed this plugin for gotham is ignoring this requests to fix it for kodi.
it does work with gotham though and you can install xbmc "gotham" parallel with kodi and have one common folder for artwork for both installations.
run xbmc gotham to collect the info and store it to common folder with kodi......kodi will pick up the info

That's actually not a half bad idea / workaround. Thanks!!!

Make sure any startup scans are complete before running cdART Manager. I believe XBMC/KODI may lock the music db during updates so cdART Manager will fail to find/add artists if a background library scan is currently in progress.

Having said that, on KODI RC2, My initial cdART Scan failed to match 95% of my artists, and a subsequent retry about 24 hours later worked fine, adding / recognizing 95%. Since cdART Manager relies on the MusicBrainz website / service, which is known to have had issues in the past, this may be a cause for unrecognized / unmatched artists that are listed as detected in cdART Manager (i.e: Detected, but White and not Green).

are you say you have had this working with kodi...?
i am using aeon mq5 for helix skin and the cd art manager is not working for me..
when i update the database it scans but there is nothing loading..eg it just flickers the word buffering when i click for any of the cd requests ie. artwork, cover art, banners etc.

nothing is there
so for me it don't work with kodi
