Do we need to have Patreon API Key or Free will work?

Go to settings-->system-->addons-->manage dependicies-->metadata utilis-->configure-->info-->enter OMDb API.

Make sure you delete the simplecache.db file after in .Kodi/user data/addondata/scriptmodule.simplecache.

Ratings should populate again

Hope this helps
I don't see "metadata utilis", what I have is "Metadata and Artwork module" and when enter the Configure>API Keys> I see three inputs, Personal API key for Fanart.TV, Patreon API-key for omdbapi.com and Personal developer API-key for TMDB.
So, do I have to enter my Free OMDB Key in the Patreon field?

Even if the things don't look so related I can't call this a coincidence.
Did you mean you put your API key in UMS or AD configuration?

Does this work with the free API key or only patron? I put my free API key in and am still not getting any ratings being populated.

Yeah works for free API. Double check API entered is correct and ensure you delete the simplecache.db file. You may have to restart system. Check the Kodi log for any skin helpers errors if they are you need reinstall skin helper and meta utilils.
Every time I enter OMDB API key in UMS addon configuration, I exit the addon and when I enter the configuration again, it's disappeared. Is this a normal behavior?

Ok, I entered my free OMDB API key in Metadata and Artwork module 1.0.1.7 under Patreon Key, and cleared the simplecache.db file, restarted Kodi, and now the IMDB rating and Top 250 appear.

It's strange, vikings isn't show on the widget but show on Next Aired and Black Mirror is show on the widget and not on Next Aired (14 day max so Next Aired can't show it)

So Skin or Addon bug ?

I'm on 11/11/2017 Android Nightly
 Next Aired info are from Next Aired addon and widget is from Skin Helper Service. It's not the skin who manages that.  
Hi, so i'm here Smile
I found another strange thing, for exemple i add the last episode for "The Gifted" TV show (S01E10), Next Aired episode widget show me S01E11 episode, for the moment no problemes, then i watch the S01E10 episode and the Next Aired episode S01E11 widget diseapear.
In fact it's look like the Next aired widget show only TVs show with unwatched episodes.
Could this plugin be causing videos I stop to suddenly start playing again on their own?

http://paste.ubuntu.com/26180521/

In this log I stopped playback and 5 seconds later the same video suddenly plays again. This has been happening when starting playing from a custom widget in Estuary Mod 18.
Nevermind, I do not get the problem with mimic... It's a nice skin so I switched.
I have been getting an error on Skin Helper Service in that I cannot update it without receiving an error message. I have tried reinstalling, but get an error when I attempt to do so.

I am using Aeon MQ7 skin, but also find I cannot install Titan skin as receive the same error message. 

Here is my log file.

Any help to solve would be most appreciated, as I cannot figure out how to fix
