-scraping for Sandra returns a list that has nothing to do with the artist. probably because of the particle 'and' inside the name.

-i can't scrape 'simon & garfunkel' or 'simon and garfunkel', the only workaround is the search for 'garfunkel'

Didn't test, but I think got it fixed in v2.0.2

Yeah, well, that's a side effect of being able to scrape tracks with multiple artists.

Hi, I just installed Universal Scarper for Artists and for Albums.
Everything was fine, the only problem I have is that I can't insert fanart logo, artist logo and album logo manually. Universal Scraper couldn't find obviously this artist because it's a local band who song only in my city! Big Grin
So, I think it's also useless to add it to MusicBrainz, and so on....

So, how can I do it manually?

If I press "i" on the artist and try to change manually, the scraper always ask me the name of the band, and I can't go on.... maybe it's a stupid question, but I couldn't fix it!

Thanks! Wink

Pissa, you should provide a nfo file with all the relevant informations (bio, artist name, etc). For Logo, fanart etc... put your media files in the artist and album directory. The skin should then extract them naturally and show them correctly.

Headphones offers a paid Musicbrainz mirror which is super fast. Any possibility of adding the option to both Universal Scrapers to use the mirror?
Thanks for your hard work.

I don't understand your question. I paid $10 in order to get Headphones working good. I may as well have my scrapers use it as well if I can

I think he is asking if he could use the musicbrainz mirror by rembo. If you have donated $10 to rembo for access then we could use the database for the scraper aswell. If rembo is ok with it.

ATV1 with crystalbuntu (12.2 frodo) as main theater. Theater remote URC MX-810, droidx with xbmc remote, or transformer tf101 with YATSE. 3 x ATV2 (V12.2 frodo).

Yesterday (before reading your post) I did some search on the forum, I found one old thread with a similar problem, so I tried to put the fanart image in the artist directory, I renamed it fanart.jpg, but nothing happened! Confused

I'm using Aeon MQ3, could be this the problem?
