PostSubject: New Version 2.220   Sat Mar 28, 2009 11:30 pm

Version 2.220

Largely a bugfix release and code cleanup release,

The issue with the rar size preference being ignored has been fixed
The TVDB scraper now addresses images.tvdb directly to avoid the problems that the new mirrors are causing
Local actor thumbs are now supported for TVDB thumbs as well as IMDB
Many other small bugs have also been fixed

The cache file has been updated and should be more stable now, it also includes the actorDB, you may have noticed that in the last release the actor search feature did not work, this has been fixed. I am hoping that issues with this have been resolved, i've timed the startup time with and without it and the startup time is halved with my setup.

The splash screen now returns some data about the loading state of the program.

I have also finally decided to upgrade from Windows XP to Vista Ultimate 64, so for people using vista you are likely to see some visual improvements.

I am aware that there are still some issues with the tv episode scraper crashing before it has completed, it is difficult for me to fix them until I get some valid feedback from users, the tv output log contains the details of the error at the very bottom of the log and I would appreciate it if people experiencing these errors would post details of the error message.

I will be starting the album scraper soon and I would like to be sure that everything else is working properly before I start since it may be quite a while between versions once I start on this.

Download Version 2.220

Thanks for the new version! It loads much much faster on my machine than the previous versions did (I currently have approx 250 movies and 700 TV episodes in my library). Can't wait for the album scraper! I've been eagerly awaiting something like XMBC Companion for album libraries for quite some time.

Windows 7 is supposed to be much like Vista, I am thinking about buying it when it is released and I wanted to see how bad Vista is.
TBH, upto now I am quite impressed, the GUI looks sweet, programs start quickly, all of my hardware worked from install, and I haven't any issues at all (so far)
If Windows 7 improves upon it then I will definately be buying it.

Win 7 is a big improvement thus far over Vista. The overhead resources are less and it runs quite stable. If you like Vista you'll love Win7.

I see this error when I try to update Fanart for TV Shows. I also saw it on 2.2.0.9. It might be the same issue as mentioned earlier.

Also, I noticed something when you have a Root Folder set for TV shows (i.e. M:\TV). When you do this it auto populates each sub folder into the list. However if down the road you add a new folder for a new show it is not picked up as part of the Media Search. I had to go back to the Folder Preferences and re-add the Root folder to pickup the new shows. I think I recall previous versions just having the root folder in the list and it was able to pickup any changes within that root folder.

The add root folder adds whatever TV Shows that are located within that folder at the time it is added, this has always been the case.
