    ...aaaaaaand, I just realized I never did re-setup remote access on that machine. I'll have to catch that up later tonight. Thanks for the things to try.

    Any errors in the frontend or backend logs when you try to pull data?

    Re: Metadata stopped grabbing coverart - possible update issue

    logs are at

    Code:
    /var/log/mythtv/mythfrontend.log
    /var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log

    You will need to grab the backend log from your master backend. Your frontend log from the same machine you are trying to get the movie images on

    You can open a terminal and do

    Code:
    tail -f /path/to/log
    and this will show the log in real time.

    You could also just try to pull the movie image from the frontend then attach both logs in a post

    Re: Metadata stopped grabbing coverart - possible update issue

    Ah-ha...now we're on to something:

    Code:
    010-09-21 00:34:31.514 Video Data Query: Executing "'/usr/share/mythtv/mythvideo/scripts/Movie/tmdb.py' -l en -D 63"
    2010-09-21 00:34:32.058 Copying 'http://hwcdn.themoviedb.org/posters/530/4bc9020d017a3c57fe000530/twelve-monkeys-original.jpg' -> 'myth://Coverart@192.168.1.2:6543/63_coverart.jpg'...
    2010-09-21 00:34:32.079 Copying 'http://hwcdn.themoviedb.org/backdrops/504/4bc90208017a3c57fe000504/twelve-monkeys-original.jpg' -> 'myth://Fanart@192.168.1.2:6543/63_fanart.jpg'...
    2010-09-21 00:34:32.703 Coverart download finished: Error writing image to file myth://Coverart@192.168.1.2:6543/63_coverart.jpg. 1

    So, it's pulling it, but can't write. Makes sense why I'm not getting cover art any longer, but not why it suddenly starting having problems. Next step?


    EDIT: Never mind. Figured it out. Big duh. Chmod'd the folders. Not sure how they got locked, but that did it.


    Thanks for all the help!

    Re: Metadata stopped grabbing coverart - possible update issue

    I know this thread is a few years old but I'm having a similar issue and wanted to try and get some advice.

    Basically I've just completed a fresh install using the latest Mythbuntu version. I've also migrated a lot of content from my old system, there are 600+ videos and I would like to add the metadata for each one.

    The first time I tried I only managed to get about 30 cover arts, I then renamed the files so they were consistent and they were only the title of the video, this provided some significant improvements, but I'm still missing 500+ cover arts for movies that are fairly well known.

    I've checked the logs and I can see the tmdb.py script pulling metadata, but only a small percentage seem to pull cover art. I've run the script manually for specific movies and I can see the cover art URL but it doesn't seem to get downloaded.

    I'm assuming that permissions can't be an issue as it works for some and not for others. Are there any other logs that I could be looking at?

    Re: Metadata stopped grabbing coverart - possible update issue

    Sorry, no - I'm not sure what would be causing that.

    To be honest, I scrapped the whole MythTV thing on my system a while back. Too many issues like this left me trouble-shooting more than I was watching stuff. I ended up switching to a Linux Plex Media Server on the backend, and a Roku connected to my TV. I've had one update go screwy, but other than that, it's been completely hands off for about a year now.

    Closing thread due to necromancy. Please open a new thread instead of posting to one that is a few years old.
