I have updated firmware to v3.0.7.of 7 August (yes very fresh!)

What works, apart from playing  ;)  : internetconnection, I deleted all xml, has write access, accepted themoviedb.org api access, correct folder structure.

Now I have the problems (related?) :
- scrape from root: very fast, creating cover.jpgs and about.jpgs, but no content, pictures or text, (except for title and background) rest is empty
- browsing of internet result in use of wrong characters (characterset=auto)
- browsing to themoviedb.org result in wrong links, no pictures.

In short; can mede8er help solving this issue?

Agree - there is a bug in this firmware and it seems it will only scrape correctly if the mede8er.db is erased before the scan.
Will report this to our engineers and will temp remove the download links until this is fixed

We just tested again from our side and all seems to work properly again.
We expect yesterday when Mede8er1 was also able to reproduce your mentioned isuse, there was some temporary isue with the tmdb api connection. Please verify again.

It looks like some tmdb site issue, where tmbd updated their site code and now not compatible with specific browser versions. We currently cannot do anything about this on Mede8er code side and hope tmdb will optimize their website code.

We enabled the download link again for this beta firmware and invite all others to give it a try.
After testing all looks fine.

After testing again today our side all looks fine.
We expect the issue mentioned yesterday was a temporary glitch on the tmdb api connection on the tmdb site.

Download link in the beta release notes is enabled again.

If you have generated .xml files in your movie folders it should indeed add the trailer link to it by using the Add Trailer option.
Be sure you have set the Trailer option to ON in setup.

Now you have them....it would be better if you Restore Default and disable the scraper again.  Then any scan  will only build the database, as long as you  reject the scraper on first use after Restore Default.

okay the trailer looks great but couple of issues to report,,,maybe its known

1) weather on home screen does not show up although selected in weather app
2) if we exit a trailer, it goes to movie wall first then goes to movie about....it should come back to about page from where we started the trailer

1] This is working on my side. Did you wait long enough? It can take some time before that overlay is loaded.
2] This is working on my side also. After pressing exit button on a trailer it goes back to the about.jpg where it was started. So don't understand why it does not on your end.

If you had read previous posts on the trailer function you  would understand that jukebox stops in order to  run the trailer within safari. Both cannot be run at the same time. So  a reconnection process is then performed, and the best we can  do is reconnect to  the level  above the about first.  Reconnection is now a lot quicker than it was with earlier beta's.

"1) weather on home screen does not show up although selected in weather app:"

Turn on the weather widget thing in the MISC Setup Screen?
