    Paul, for the most part it works. I thought I had all options checked in one of the tests, but I must not have. This time I made sure that I had the 'Get text metadata and artwork from XBMC (.nfo/.tbn) file' option checked and it brought most of the metadata into Mezzmo.

    Everything except for the category. The category is listed as 'Movie' not 'Home Movie'?

    Glad that works better now. <category> is not an official XBMC .NFO tag so that explains why that does not work. Mezzmo determines the category value using the top level tag in the XBMC .NFO file - which can be either <movie>, <episodedetails>, <tvshow> or musicvideo>. So that explains why you are getting Movie as the category value.

    We'll add a new top level tag <homemovie> so that Mezzmo users can set the category value to Home movie. We'll email you a patch to try out. This addition will be included in the upcoming Mezzmo minor release that we're preparing now.

    Thanks Paul. The patch and then the v4.0.5 update both worked.

    Hate to resurrect a problem solved post, but... I think I found a bug. I stumbled on this when I was creating .nfo files for some of my DVD rips (.VOB) where the file name Vts_01_1.vob couldn't be used as the file name.

    The <homemovie> tag you created sets the category to "Home movie", but the Display Titles dialogue is keying off of "Home movies". I played around a little bit and capitalization doesn't seem to matter, but the s on movies does. I also tried setting a couple of my files to use <homemovies> as the tag but Mezzmo didn't appear to recognize it...

    So, as I already have a 100+ .nfo files created using the <homemovie> tag, I'd request that you change the Display Titles code to recognize files categorized as Home Movie (or both Home Movie or Home Movies). Is that possible?

    I just tried it here and it worked well for me . Can you zip up one of your .NFO files and email it to us at support [at] conceiva [dot] com? We'll try it here to reproduce the problem you are having.

    Paul... the ingestion of the .nfo data works fine. The problem is that the category tag value used by the display titles dialogue doesn't match.

    Here's an the .nfo file is used for one of my VOB files (M:\Home Movies\iMemories DVDs\1992-10-04 to 1993-05-24 DVD#01\VIDEO_TS\VTS_01_1.nfo):
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <homemovie>
    <title>1992-10-04 to 1993-05-24 DVD#01</title>
    <sorttitle>1992-10-04 to 1993-05-24 DVD#01</sorttitle>
    <year>1992</year>
    <genre>Home Movie</genre>
    </homemovie>

    I have set the display field for "Home movies" to be %TITLE%

    You can see that the metadata was updated according to the .nfo file contents. But the display title is from the file name not the metadata %TITLE% field.

    If I manually change the category of the file from "Home movie" to "Home Movies", (add an 's') so that it matches the field name in the display title dialogue, my display name is now shown properly.

    Is this clearer? This is why I requested that Display Titles dialogue should be changed to recognize files categorized as Home Movie (or both Home Movie or Home Movies). If you still want the nfo file or anything else, let me know.

    Thanks for the further information. I re-tested it here and it is working fine for me with your .NFO. The display title for Home movie is being used.

    I think the renaming of the category to "Home movies" may be a red herring. You can rename to anything other than "TV show", "Movie" or "Home movie" and the display title will default back to the display title that you have defined for Video files (i.e. %TITLE% in your screenshot). So the strange part is why is the display title for "Home movie" not being used when you set the category to "Home movie". It seems to be displaying %FILENAME%. Just to clarify, do you have display titles set for the particular playlist / folder that you are viewing the VOB file in Mezzmo? Right-click on the playlist / folder in the tree in Mezzmo and click Properties. On the Properties dialog, click the Display Titles button and check the display titles for that playlist / folder.

    If no success, it's best we see a set of logs. Turn on logging in Mezzmo (see http://forum.conceiva.com/showthread...nostic-logging) and exit Mezzmo (Windows) app. Run Mezzmo app again and then remove the VOB file from your Mezzmo library and re-add it back into Mezzmo. Check the display title for the file displayed in Mezzmo. If wrong, rename the category to something else and view the display title again. Then stop your Mezzmo server and exit Mezzmo. Zip up all the logs and email them to us at support [at] conceiva [dot] com.

    The top level Mezzmo Video folder & my Home Movies folder had Home movies display set to %TITLE%. The subfolders (under Home Movies) that hold the actual VOB files has the display titles button is greyed out but the proper titles are showing. Some, but not all, of the playlists that I created for my Home movies had the display set to %FILENAME%. When I changed them to %TITLE% they display correctly.

    Sorry for the wild goose chase. I thought I had taken care of mismatched settings by (re)setting the top-level mezzmo video folder; I thought it would ripple the settings down for all its sub folders. Is there a way to reset the display title defaults for a folder / playlist and all its subfolders?

    Glad you found the culprit.

    There's currently no way to force sub-playlists and folders to have the same display title settings. We'll look into that for a future version.
