Release -  Light IMDb Ratings Update
Aaaah, now I understand that log error message that some items are missing an IMDB ID. At first I though that was an issue with old .nfo files. I think this also happens with the Watchedlist service but I would have to turn on debug logging to check that again.

I was getting some mixed results with the add-on, but I did not have to dig too far to see the cause. You would know why, but other users of your add-on may see the same behavior and not know why.

I was noticing that many episodes from various shows were not scraping the IMDB ratings. The cause for this is that the scraper site does not have the IMDB ID recorded at the site. Here is an example of missing ID's at TheMovieDB site...

Once you fill in the missing ID's, and wait approx 24 hours, the add-on should then be able to retrieve the IMDB rating.
Good morning @Karellen and thanks for highlighting this out.

In fact, as written in the add-on description in the first thread, "Light IMDb Ratings Update requires the presence of the IMDb IDs for the movies, TV shows and episodes you want to be updated.". In case there is no IMDb ID available, the add-on tries to retrieve it automatically from The Movie Database and TheTVDB.com sites if at least one among the TMDB or TVDB IDs is available. Of course there is an issue when the IMDb is not available on the site as well (i.e. your example). Therefore, as you suggested, I would reccomend to insert the missing information directly in the site so that this would be helpful for the entire community; in addition, if someone doesn't want to wait for the site to update its database, the IMDb ID can be also added manually through the context menu and refresh the rate immediately.
Anyway, from the Light IMDb Ratings Update log, it should be clear that the IMDb ID is searched on The Movie Database and TheTVDB.come Movie Database in case it is missing.

Have a great day to all!

Have a great evening,

Still no resume on previous interrupted sync? Or at least an option to override screensaver timer for the scan to finish sucessfully when we have huge libraries plz! I have to disable screensaver and sleep on NVidia Shield everytime I want to update ratings Big Grin I have 3 nVidia shield.

And btw, what does "Added option to set IMDb rating as default rating" mean?

And also, I've noticed something funny. Using Emby for KODI plugin since I have the Emby server with the centralized database, in case I want to update a single TV Show it doesnt work because I have "Anime" and "TV Show" library so I set my menu entries in the skin with "Tags" (the Emby for KODI plugin creates those to have 2 separate libraries on KODI). The only way to update TV Shows is updating ALL shows. Is there any possible workaround to this? 
Hey @djhifiWink

I will try to work on it during the Christmas break. I gave the priority to the bug that @Karellen reported because the add-on behaviour was really harming the metadata of the libraries. About the point you rised, I see it more as an optimization.

Just one clarification: I can understand that the stand-by (i.e. sleep) can block the update, but I was thinking that would have not been the case for the screensaver...so, is the update stopping in both cases? Is this only NVidia Shield related?

And to be honest...I dind't get your second point on Emby server..sorry...  Huh
