So building the HTPC was the easy part.....HELP

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So I just finished the PC build and as tough as it was, its cake compared to putting all the software on this thing. I need some help with media browser. Is it me or did anyone else feel defeated when you first came across the site?

So a few questions. I notice there were a ton of themes, theme bundles and "extras" I guess there called plug ins that you can purhase. Its a bit overwhelming particulary having to make sure you enter all your movies correctly. So any advice would be great.
Such as should rip a few movies first before I get started with media browser. Is one theme easier to navigate than the other? Should purchase a bundle or not and the advantages of doing so?

Thanks for the help.

Use chocolate theme. (Free)

Get CoverArt (Paid)

Inside mediabrowser click the wrench configure button thing in the top right. Set it for COVERFLOW and 320 size.

Next step: PROFIT.

Use yammmm for proper naming. If you have a problem, use the index id from imdb and name the folder the index id.

So is the index ID the entire URL or just the tt...... And do I still name the movie? For example if it is Batman, do I name it "Batman" or tt.......?

Thanks

I think he put one extra 'm' in there. It's Yammm (Yet Another Media Meta Manager). http://www.sevenforums.com/media-center/10757-yammm-yet-another-media-meta-manager.html
