I am working with the Movie: The Andromeda Strain 2008. My folder is formatted as The Andromeda Strain [2008].

When Media Center Master searches for this movie it returns null.

This is the whole process displayed on the right:

MCM: [F#3] now working on The Andromeda Strain [2008]

MCM: [F#3] The Andromeda Strain (2008)
MCM: [F#3] talking to IMDB...
MCM: [F#3] searching by title/year...
MCM: [F#3] The Andromeda Strain (2008)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
MCM: [F#3] I have no idea what movie that is, skipping it...
MCM: [F#3] >> "The Andromeda Strain [2008]"
MCM: [F#3] No available poster
MCM: Downloading and saving all available backdrops...
MCM: [F#3] ... no backdrops were saved (there aren't any available)
MCM: [F#3] IMDB #tt0424600, "" ()
MCM: [F#3] Created Kodi/XBMC metadata files


The exact process goes like this:

It finds a folder to process, moves the movie into a folder of the same name.
it searches for the movie and displays this message:

Confirm which movie this is, please...

0

IMDB/tMDB ID# tt0424600



D:\NewDownloads\Media Processing\The Andormeda Strain [2008]

<Enter IMDB ID> <None of These> <Confirm & Finish>


On the right it shows title and year. If I click on "The andromeda Strain 2008" it it shows the above window again. If I click on Confirm & Finish it displays this list on the right:

MCM: [F#4] talking to IMDB...
MCM: [F#4] searching by title/year...

IMDb.com: Found #tt0066769, "The Andromeda Strain" (1971)

IMDb.com: Found #tt0424600, "The Andromeda Strain" (2008)
IMDb.com: Found #tt0066769, "The Andromeda Strain" (1971)
IMDb.com: Found #tt0424600, "The Andromeda Strain" (2008)
IMDb.com: Found #tt0370281, "The Andromeda Strain: Making the Film" (2001)

then ask for the IMDB ID. If I enter the IMDB ID, it says it cant find it and moves on to the next movie.

I have used the program on and off for several years and it never had this issue. I use it to keep my meta data organized for Kodi, but recently i have switched to Plex media server, Plex seems to like what I am doing so I keep doing it :-)

Thank You for looking into this for me.

You could start by naming the folder correctly, I'd think:

D:\NewDownloads\Media Processing\The Andormeda Strain [2008]

should be

D:\NewDownloads\Media Processing\The AndROmeda Strain [2008]

Yes but if you read my whole post I selected the correct movie and still received a null return.

So your expectation is garbage in, perfection out? That’s a bold strategy, Cotton.

So now we have resorted to being 5 year old's on a playground arguing who hit who first.

You know this is not solving my issue. When Media Center Master presents me with a list of valid movie selections REGARDLESS of the spelling of my folders and file names, AND I select the correct movie, it should return the metadata for the movie I selected.

This sounds like an issue to be delt with anyway. As requested I will try again with the correct spelling and get back.

10 minutes later:

I apologize, but I misspelled the folder and media file in the POST of this message not on the hard drive, I checked both the folder and the file.

Here is a copy of the path:

D:\NewDownloads\The Andromeda Strain [2008]\The Andromeda Strain [2008].mkv

So I ran the check again. Here is a log:

Media Center Master v2.20 (build 32820.456)

Use the menus to update your preferences and scan folders. When you're done, you can right-click the list of detected videos for specific options. You can also drag-and-drop||MCM||URL||MCM||http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drag-and-drop from Windows Explorer for direct fetching.

Example:
If you have the folder D:\Movies with all of your movies in it, then
add that location to your scan folders and you should see all of your
movie videos listed on the pane to the left. Now right-click on that
list for metadata fetching and media organization options!

So what the log does not show, is today on the first try, it did find the correct movie and presented it to me. I selected confirm and finish. Next it does not find any meta data, so it does another search. I then have a null selection window that shows up (described above). I then click on "The Andromeda Strain 2008" on the right, it then finds some meta data and completes semi successfully.

As this was not a true movie as seen in a movie theater, but a mini series on TV could that be the cause of my heart ache?

Thanks again for all the help.

Yes as the way the providerid is queried you can not query a TV show via Movies and vice versa.

But to add to the confusion TMDB does have it as both, but different ids per type. You do not normally see this.
