Media Companion 3 beta's - Now with Music Video support
Actually would glitches caused by scraping in basic mode and then later changing it off of basic mode media companion Dan Rees cracks the movie with movie name. Nfo instead and you get to files.
I'm going to look into media companion detecting if there's a movie. Nfo file and if there is just rename it to the movie name. Nfo

 lol, Puzzle solved * gg *

It is logical that if you have 2 .nfo files in each movie folder that you get everything displayed twice.
You will probably have changed the MediaCompanion naming settings and then done a rescrape. 
 I used to use Media Center Master (paid for the lifetime subscription) but I haven't entirely "switched over" to MC3 yet as I'm still trying to figure out which one I like better.  I never scrapped any of my "old" movies with this program, only newly acquired ones.  In fact I can see it going through on the status bar saying "Movie X valid NFO found - skipped"

Long story short, some of those movie duplicates were movies that weren't ever "touched" by MC3.  So, the great mystery still goes forward about how some of the "old" movies got 2 NFOs in there or were even "touched" by MC3 to begin with.....

It didn't bother me with the duplicates, it won't bother me if they show up again.  I just thought it was some sort of bug that perhaps the devs overlooked and I wanted to bring to his/her attention. Smile

In case you are not aware of this program... https://mkvtoolnix.download/

Very easy to combine your clips into one file. Just be aware of the difference between Append and Add Additional Parts, and it will save you some frustrating moments... https://gitlab.com/mbunkus/mkvtoolnix/wi...onal-parts
@Karellen
Thanks, the perfect program for combining all the clips of a particular event, and converting into one MKV.
It also allowed me to give each final mkv file a more meaningful name.
I could even delete the sound track which was greatl for some old Super 8 and standard movies I had transferred to digital, but still had the whirring of the projector.
Could have even added some music, titles or whatever, but will leave that for another time.

Media Center Master may have saved the nfo file as movie.nfo
Media Companion default is to save the nfo with exactly the same filename as the video file.

There is a glitch in MC though, that if movie.nfo exists, but saving in MC is as <moviename>.nfo, then a new nfo should not have been created. I will be looking into this to get it fixed.

I'm still confused on the movie set artwork thing.

All of my movies are in individual folders.
Are these the proper settings to have the movie set artwork downloaded to a central folder with sub folders for each movie?

MC will tell me it scraped movie set artwork and there isn't a single thing in my Collections folder.

So why am I consistently getting results like this for many movies.
As you can see in the pic I got a extra fanart and thumbs folder that is basically useless.
Multiple pictures that are not even in the language of the film.
But when I go to the Fanart tab none of these are even there and there are many pics that are actually images from the movie... which is what I want.
In the artwork preferences I have TMDb set at the source for the extra artwork

In post #5013 i have explained very exactly in which settings you get which pictures and why it is.

When select Fanart.Tv you get the artwork same as your screenshot -> section MOVIE THUMBS from Fanart.tv:
https://fanart.tv/movie/8587/the-lion-king/

When select TMDb -> section BACKDROPS from TMDb:
https://www.themoviedb.org/movie/8587-th.../backdrops

I just tested it, it works for me as i described.

Second note:
The artworks of fanart.tv called "MOVIE THUMBS" is in kodi the own artwork type "landscape.jpg", it is provided in fanart.tv with a language specific tag. MC ignores this tag and downloads all available for the thumb setting.

 Yeah, I know about your previous post and I followed that and that is how I set it.

I just realized how I am being stupid.

The movies I'm having trouble with are movies that were previously scraped with MediaElch a while back.
So even with the correct settings I'm doing a full rescrape I wasn't deleting the existing artwork first so it wasn't overwriting the old ones... leaving me with the crappy ones I already had!

Soooo... my own stupidity. Thanks for helping me realize the problem.
