I am having an issue that I can't find the solution to.


I have 3 movies that have the same title.


Alice in Wonderland ( Disney )

Alice in Wonderland ( TV Version )

Alice in Wonderland ( Movie )


No matter what I try the server shows the same image and meta data for all three items. I have tried to force download the correct data but to no avail. Any ideas, tips, suggestions?

Did you try adding the year to the file name?

For example alice_in_wonderland(1951)
Alice_in_wonderland(2010) and such

I tried your suggestion and it made no difference. I can search the meta data and it shows all three versions but it won't apply the data. It shows the same image and data of which ever I add first for all three titles.

I finally figured it out. The problem is the XML document that the server creates when it imports the movie. I deleted those and was able to show the proper images and data. Can someone tell me the actual purpose of the XML documents? Are they fully necessary since I deleted those three and it displays the data correctly?

The XML file should help the sever to identify the correct dvd meta info. The quick match feature should not be affected by the xML file. Our developers will look into this.
