video posters not downloading
« on: March 14, 2009, 03:24:50 pm »
I have an odd problem.
When I rip a new video to my system and then search for the mediapics it finds the IMDB information and pops up the fetching poster for 0268380 (Ice Age).
It then sometimes comes up with an error of 'coverart exists for this file but could not be downloaded before the timeout expired' and sometimes not.
Under the Cover File in the metadata there is 'No cover'.
I do get all the other metadata (director, year, plot, rating, etc)

Any ideas how to fix this one?
Any ideas how to extend the timeout period in the hope of downloading the file? 
I have an ADSL2 connection (approx (>100kBps of actual download speed with a 8MBps connection speed) so it should be able to download the file pretty quickly at my end.

Cheers

What Chipppy isn't mentioning, is he's using MythVideo.

Soory for the delayed reply Thom.  I have been away on holidays.

I am using mythvideo.  I use the standard install myth selections to try and keep things as simple as possible, until I learn more about this stuff.

I take it that mythvideo is possible a bad thing?  If yes what would you recommend that I use instead?

Cheers

Dude, you're an idiot.

We have an entire media library system with METADATA!
