    Anybody use XBMC?

    Have changed the skin to 'media stream', which is a great skin, and shows thumbnails for each show etc.

    However none of mine show up, do i have to manually add each one? If so how and where?

    Thanks if anyone can help

    you have to have your xbox connected to the internet toi be able to scrape the info, plus have you setup your content to be TV Shows?

    all shows scrape from [url]www.thetvdb.com[/url]

    Ok, not sure how to do that, it is connected to the internet, well i believe it is, the xbox news ticker ticks along the bottom, and the weather thing works.

    All i did was go into Videos, add network location, navigate to the location on my PC, pressed ok loads and it's now there. So to view them i go to Videos>Desktop - PC (which is what i named it) and it comes up with the folders

    Films
    TV Shows
    Wrestling

    etc. etc.

    How do i set it to TV Shows and 'scrape' the info?

    Managed to set the content.

    Set it to TV Shows, use tvdb.com, ok. It says 'compressing database' very briefly, then nothing happens

    ive had that issue with that skin before as a test change back to the PM skin and see if it works, also in your tv shows how are you naming your files?

    ummmm... how should i be naming them?

    for example American Dad:

    TV Shows -> American DAD -> S01E01.avi
    Episode Name S01E01.avi

    for ease of use i put all one tv show into the one folder and then name the as S01E01, S01E02, S02E01, S02E02 etc

    XBMC will scrpae all the details and create the seperate seasons and thumbnails for you

    will do it auto if only the avi files are named in the correct way, have you tried just running the PM3HD skin and scraping from within that one?
