MCE Freezes on Metadata search

May 30, 2014 at 9:56 PM
I am monitoring my recorded TV folder to rename and move files. On one series in particular MCE Buddy does not move past the metadata search and I have to stop the program. I have tried several times but no luck. I see the show in exactly as WMC names it so I have no idea what is going on. Either way it should not get stuck if it can't find the show, it should just move on to the next file. I waited over 7 minutes on this last attempt. Don't laugh at the name of the wife watches it. :)

Can you cut 10MB of the original wtv file using the file splitter and upload chunk001 to the mcebuddy server to debug this.

Thank you for looking at this. The file has been uploaded to the directory rumred85.

I checked it out. It took some time to download the the metadata from but then it eventually continued. I suspect the connection to the imdb server may be slow/intermittent in your computer which may be causing the issues. Eventually it'll timeout or Finish or continue.

It did work, took 7:29. Sorry I wasted your time on this, I will be more patient next time before I post.
