I've noticed lately that I am not getting the movie plot or synopsis showing in Media Browser. I also noticed an error message on the log screen of Media Center Master saying something about not having access to a file on my system last night but it was late so I didn't copy/paste the message (it wouldn't let me do it!) and I was too tired to write it down..
Has anybody else experienced this? I'm using the free version of both programs.
For a while I had it where all the new movies that were *ahem* installed after March would have all their metadata, files, pictures and backdrops. But MCM would show them as "yellow"...which means no nothing in the file. I would be able to do the "refresh metadata" and violia...all the metadata was there! Also, always had issues with getting TV shows recognized. And you can forget about boxsets. You have to have them in individual folders in the "main" folder first...find the metadata in MCM and apply it. Then manually move the movies into the "collection" folder. Then, for some reason, MCM will recognize the movies as a "collection.
I would look into ownership and permissions of the directory and/or file. I had similar problems before for files that were acquired by programs running as services.
For some reason a bunch of permissions were changed (or just flat out gone) on my network when I checked this morning. I've re-established them but had to head off to work. So maybe tonight I'll have time to reboot and see what happens.
Apparantly the ability to read the HDD was available in both MCM and MB but the writing permission was lost.
I'm a little perplexed as to why tis would happpen. I'm wondering if MSE or MS Defender decided on their own that my permissions were to liberal and changed them for me.
