You should donate 1USD to https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?u=5038490.
And then request your pesonal key via email http://www.omdbapi.com/apikey.aspx

Don't forget to delete your simplecache.db

Rotten Tomatoes, IMDB and Metacritic are confirmed working.
Flixter ratings is not working.

AWARDS and CRITICS CONSENSUS are stiil no go though Sad

I hope it gets fixed on the next update.

Can someone tell me please where exactly I have to put my OMDb API key?
I can't seem to find any addon settings for skin helper service in Kodi or any xml-file line that needs to be changed.

Settings/system/addons/manage dependencies

Then you will find where to put your key in the settings of "metadata and artwork module" dependency


Thanks but unfortunately I only have an entry for a fanart.tv API.
Installed the latest Skin Helper Service from Git.
Do I have to update the metadatautils separately to have it working with OMDb?

hi Maaarv,

I think you use script.module.metadatautils from kodi official repo.

Install marcel beta repo.
then SHS from this repo
script.module.metadatautils should automaticly be updated to 1.0.9

Hi Marcel,

I'm using the below code in the includespvr.xml for use with the ChannelOSDExtended, but nothing is being returned. Is not possible to use Genre here?

PHP Code:
$INFO[Window(Home).Property(SkinHelper.ListItem.Genre)] 

Also not getting any results when using below code when using in DialogFullScreenInfo.xml

PHP Code:
$INFO[Window(Home).Property(SkinHelper.Player.NextGenre)] 

This is quite strange because Genre for the currently playing item works fine, just not NextGenre.

I know you are a busy guy these days, but did you see my posts about manual PVR searches? Manuel searches do not appear to be possible for both TV shows and movies if API Key(s) have been entered. Remove the key(s) and I can manually search and select TV show, but not for movie. However, without TMDB API Key entered, I get no data for director, writer, genre or mpaa, so I need to apply API Key, but then I can't do any manual searches for mis-matched items.

Nothing in my custom folder is currently being picked up at all and no artwork is getting scrapped for programme items with NEW: at beginning, even when this has stripped from the title.

These are my observations over the past 6-7 days. Are these currently known issues?
As ever, any feedback will be much appreciated.
Cheers
