Bugs/Problems with MMS (iMDB)

Postby junor » Sun Apr 24, 2011 11:12 pm

Apparently iMDB changed their cover locations cause I have been unable to get covers from there for months (or years?) now. Is there some patches to fix this?

Another problem with iMDB is that MMS saves ÄÖ characters with empty chars. So if the movie name is, let say "Dark knight - Yön ritari", MMS shows "Dark knight - Yn ritari". Very annoying.

And then with with Weather plugin, I don't get any icons??
Finally, "burn-free" screensaver is bothering picture slide shows. How to disable screensaver during slideshows?

Oh, and I'm running MMS 1.1.0 in Debian Lenny. I compiled 1.1.1 but there were the same bugs and it kept crashing in everty ten minutes...

I would like to stick with MMS+VDR and avoid XBMC but is it inevitable?... Hopefully somebody has some solutions for these bugs.

Hi Junor

These are my know bugs so far:
  • (is fixed in 1.1.1) weather bug workaround: viewtopic.php?p=15203#p15203

  • IMDB bug is also in 1.1.1, so no dice for us even on current version. The "German" part is still working somehow (not all of it). English need fixing though.
    And I can't use Umlauts for searching, although I can see them. Maybe a code page problem:

    Code: Select all

    egrep -i "iso" $(find . -iname "*Conf*") | grep "="
    ./MovieConfig:filetypes_m = iso, iso
    ./Config:convert_locale = ISO-8859-1
    ./EPGConfig:#svdrp_locale = ISO-8859-15
    ./EPGConfig:svdrp_locale = ISO-8859-9
    ./Config.orig:convert_locale = ISO-8859-1
    ./WeatherConfig:codepage = ISO-8859-15
    ./Config.dpkg-dist:convert_locale = ISO-8859-1

  • Web-Radio is playing existing entries but doesn't offer search results for genres anymore. Fix is needed here too.

  • Thumbnails doesn't work in the Debian package, "--disable--ffmpeg-thumb" is needed as configure switch.

I'm using version 2272 (latest) on a Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) x86_64 - 2.6.32-31-server (My Media System 1.1.1) with these settings:

Code: Select all

Configuration: --use-internal-ffmpeg --enable-debug --enable-tv --enable-game --enable-weather --enable-notify-area --enable-clock --enable-python --enable-lirc --enable-clock --disable-inotify --enable-alsaplayer --disable-ffmpeg-thumb --enable-rip


What we need is a Debian and Ubuntu package with the bugs above ironed out.
I've also keen on getting these errors fixed, since me and my relatives are using MMS every day. Me and them tried XBMC not only once, but always went back to MMS again.

Regards,
Andreas

PS: me asked Anders for help...let's see what will happen...
PPS: I`ve got an answer, there is hope... (but we`ve got to be patient ;-) )

Thanks for the tips, I got the weather plugin working.
But is there way to disable weather from notify-area? I would like to have only clock there.

Great that somebody is working with imdb fix. Just a thought: there's a pretty good Perl module for fetching data from IMDB, IMDB::Film and also IMDbPY for Python. Could those be used rather than URL parsing? Or IMDB offers data in text format also.

Hi,
I build a simple cli perl-script to update basic IMDb info. I couldn't figure out how Cast and Director tables are used in the db-file, so my script updates only cover (most important for me), title, year, plot, runtime and ratings.

If somebody is interested, I could probably email it, though it's not very pretty code so I don't attach it here at least yet..

No, going to hellfest in France instead. They mostly sold me on Bolt Thrower playing and because the festival was fantastic last year :-)

I've seen Volbeat quite a few times, they've gotten very big in Denmark and Germany now. I still remember seeing them in a small audio store here in Aalborg with about 50 other :) Enjoy the show with your kid, they usually put on a good one.

I'm surely going to build new packages ;)

Andreas, what about that thumbnail thingie? I've no problems with thumbnails here?! Is it only some special video-formats?

Anders ;) Thought you went to mother fucking hell ... glad you're alive :twisted:

Hello Roman,

all video formats were concerned (Ubuntu 10.04.2 - x86_64)
see error log here: viewtopic.php?p=19335#p19335

Btw would really appreciate a new package, too :)

Ahh - and to make this flash in the pan complete a comment from Magicamun and Lorenzodes would be cool :-P

Regards,
Andreas
