Default Re: Trying Windows 7 Media Center . .

Well I don't know what to tell you. The combination works fine for me. Mind you, I run MetaBrowser on my win2008 server (where my media is stored, it's installed as a service and monitors my TV Shows and Movies folders). Whenever a TV Show episode or Movie is copied into the folders it automatically downloads all the metadata and images.

How do you have your media stored? For movies they must all be in their own separate folders. The best naming scheme is the movie name followed by the release year in brackets. Any other stuff you want in the name (eg I put 1080p or 720p in the name as well) needs to be in square brackets. For example: "Horton Hears a Who! (2008) [1080p]"

For MetaBrowser to recognize your files you have to make sure the file extensions you use are in the "Valid Extensions" box in the settings otherwise it will skip them. Other than that and adding your folders to look for should work...
