You can answer this question yourself. If the TV scraper is not working then you have nothing to lose by just trying.

I think my advice was lost in translation. I did not mean update the bootloader/firmware but just try the scraper. As for rebooting your player first, that just means switching it off then on again, which you likely do everyday you use it.

Thank you for fixing - on whichever way!

In my case the way over Edit doesn't work.
If I choose Scan Folder it works.
Individual editing on this way isn't possible, but thats okay.

We have updated the TV Series scraper app to take care of TV Series folder names with '.' like 'The.X.Factor.UK'. To use the new app just reboot your X3D and it will updated automatically. The 'Edit' function is working but unfortunately when doing a 'Scrape' and then selecting the correct TV Series name it cannot show the fanart or poster due to the tvdb changes. The good news is if you select the correct TV Series after the 'Scrape' and then 'OK' then select 'Save' it will work correctly and download all the required images and xml files as in the past.

Given the amount of work some community users have put in for free to produce and modify tools like Thumbgen, Aggregate Mede8er Jukebox Manager, Yadis, YAJM, Y2M, Yadis2M, TVRename, the Net API apps and so on, it seems to me that people will step up and fix lingering defects in the code if it made open source. I'd not be surprised if people found ways to add new functionality, made it more efficient and more extensible.

The code is generated via a proprietary Realtek SDK owned by the software subcontractor. Very little is opensource, and that has to have added libraries  via the SDK to work. The bulk of the outstanding issues are in those very old libraries that Realtek have no interest in fixing.  Older models had their code modded via patching the compiled code using cut and paste from other compiled code taken from other makes. Secure boot stopped that.
