Hi Milhouse

You'll need to remove, clean and rescrape your VIDEO_TS movies. Try one and see how it goes before doing the rest.

CONFIRMED - tried one as you stated, and it works fine.

I just try to avoid remote artwork as much as possible so I run mklocal.py on a regular basis to ensure that any remote artwork (I use Artwork Downloader after scraping new movies to find logos and clearart for older movies) is converted to local artwork.

So, does this mean you have a copy of all artwork in your media folders ?

If I get your workflow right, it goes something like this:

1) new movie comes in and is scraped with Universal Media Scraper
2) run Artwork Downloader to gather any non-standard art to be found (this only writes the remote URLs to the database, since you prevent AD from saving to local media folders)
3) run the Three Amigos to: download those remote URL links to local media folders (both std and non-std artwork), naming them with Movie-Name-prefix and then load the texturecache with ALL the just-downloaded artwork PLUS any local artwork saved in the media folders by hand

Rinse and Repeat as new movies come in.

Any comment on using MediaElch to administer the Library ? Benefts or Pitfalls ? One thing I'd like to do is create some custom genre tags, to better classify movies as I see them Blush Y'know, Ed Wood films, Dondi, The Creeping Terror, Eagah! - they're all Movies: BAD as far as we're concerned around here Wink

Thanks again for help and advice.
