Its not scraping details like actor and director at all for me and I dont even get plots. that said, its a nice concept but needs work.
Overall NMJ is not as pretty as YAMJ/AEON but I find the fluidity of the interface very good. it works more effectively for me than oversight.
Hmm ... which version of Oversight are you using? I gets plots, directors, and actors. There is a new version in testing that will vastly improve foreign film scraping, but the current one v2.0 r1426 works fine with imdb provided you set the scraping imdb_source to mobile.
Oversight has watch folders which are very handy for monitoring collections that change rapidly like TV recordings. That is a big deal for me at any rate. Noone else seems to do it right. It also sorts posters by the age you added them to the collection and does it right. Apart from Plex, it certainly is scraping better than say XBMC. Don't know about YAMJ.
I haven't tried NMJ much. Sounds like it is getting better though. When it first came out I had trouble with the notion of telling it exclude various collections.
The scraping thing is interesting. I used to think XBMC was the way to go. I am not so sure any more. Plex's Media Server is far better from a metadata point of view. I can also see the point of YAMJ type programs which allow you to centralize things. I guess it's a matter of taste.
One thing, I recently looked at a few shows with my C200 ( had been playing with XBMC related things on different units) and the picture quality was truly nice. Colours were great. Remote has nice options. It's even better than I recall
