I configured the folder path , but i cant get the add on to download anything .
It scan my folder found all the artists but nothing is downloading .
Im using version 14.1 on windows 8.1 and skin Aeon Shednox

The same is happening to me using XBMCMania skin (Aeon Nox mod) on 14.1 (also updated to 14.2 - same problem) and W8.1 - I'm also using the DSPlayer version of Kodi if that makes any difference. I can update the cdArt database and Kodi library, but nothing happens when I select "automatic download" or anything else from the main menu of cdArt.

Also, when I try to update fanart.tv data I immediately get the progress bar to pop up at a stuck value, its been 50% and 94% at different tries, but it never moves from there.

Any suggestions?

Guy i have a workaround for the CDart plugin not working on 14.1/14.2 .
What i did is very simple , i downloaded version 13.2 , changed the skin to Aeon Nox (you need to change to a skin that supports this add on).
I configured the backup folder the same path like Kodi 14.2 and started the add on , after it finished i backed up everything , and returned to Kodi 14.2 and everything is working great now Smile

Will have to try this, but its still a pain when you add music to your library to have to go back to 13.2 and do it that way.
Unless you can install 13.2 as portable and use that until the add-on works properly with Helix, or can you have 13.2 and 14.x installed at the same time separately?
In any case, many thanks, will try this out tonight.

EDIT: I will extend another round of Thank You for your help, getting XBMC 13.2 and running cdArt Manager in it worked perfectly!
Now my music library looks f**cking awesome Big Grin

I just installed this addon under Kodi. I'm not able to navigate the CDArt manager GUI. I can hear the navigation sounds of my skin (Aeon MQ5); but can't see a highlight cursor until I exit out of this manager. I'm "hoping" my skin supports this addon.

Just out of curiosity, does this plugin download artwork automatically? Maybe I don't need to use the GUI?

Try moving the mouse cursor over the menu options, then use the arrow keys.
