FIRST POST GUYS! man i have been reading these forums for a long time now and i have placed an order for a wd tv SO EXCITED,(i have been doing the archos 605 with dvr station way for a while and am ready for hd) got it for 73.00 bucks and it comes with a free hdmi SHWEEET DEAL.

anyways letgs get to the point nicky. so i got a collection of probably 700 movies , (mostly avi's. ARRRRRRRR MI MATEYS) and looking into the homebrew scene and such, is there a program that can automaticy detect movie name files and download dvd covers and movie slide imdb info and such. or do i have to do each one manually. UGHHHHHH PLEASE NOOOOO. and if there is a website to get it all easily and fast where at?

Nick, the only way I know to add thumbnails is to manually download jpg's from either movieposterdb.com or Google Images. Put them in the appropriate movie folder and rename them. I.E. moviename.avi + moviename.jpg + (if applicable) moviename.srt/sub etc.

There might be a program out there, but personally, I have never heard of one.

oh ok. that's not so bad i guess i dont mind little projects. how exactly does the filenaming go? becuase i have seen different ways. like naming it folder.jpg and not the movie name and some weird stuff. and to generate a movie slide do i download those or do i have to create each one myself? and with what software would i do that.

WD TV Media Player uses moviename.avi and moviename.jpg. Also, if you get subtitle files, you will want to name them moviename.srt/sub/ass/ssa (I think those are the only subtitle file extensions WD TV will recognize).

I will tell you in a few days what the Asus O!Play uses. I have one on order that should be here by Friday.

There are tons of programs like Ember which is designed for XBMC that will do exactly that and more.... sounds like if thats all you need ember, or media companion or media info plus would do what you need....
