i think, problems with moviescraping is not the theme in this thread. Please make for this a new thread.

Is there any chance to get a solution for tv Scraping?

Something has changed for me lately for the TV series ... it manages to download the main cover and the plot of the series.
I haven't touched anything and I use google dns.
Unfortunately I don't download the graphic previews of every single episode and the cover of the season.
Has anything changed to you?

If anybody wants to update the mede8er to compensate for the loss of the scraping ability, I will gladly donate. Please don't let this epic piece of equipment fall by the wayside.

It's taking me weeks to do all the jpg and xml files when it would have taken me a few minutes a couple of years ago.

best wishes

Im good with setting up all the jpgs but would you be able to give me the easy steps to making an xml file from scratch at all?
Many thanks.

It doesn't work for me either
Maybe some progress on this issue?
I am also willing to donate for a working version.

For years jer1956 has been saying that the Mede8er products are old hat and no longer supported. Yes, I fully agree they were really good and worked well 4 or 5 years ago and then, as technology evolved, they began suffering from incompatibilities.

It took me ages to finally give up on my 600X3D and move on to a new Android TV box because I didn't want to play games so a box such as the Nvidia Shield Pro was both expensive and overkill. After doing much research, I narrowed my choice down to the Vero 4K, Beelink GT Pro, Odroid N2, and Ugoos AM6 Plus. Having watched several youTube reviews on all of them I went for the AM6 Plus and loaded it with the free CoreELEC (dual-boot) option which is a linux based version of Kodi. CoreELEC is available for most Android boxes.

Not only is the AM6 Plus utterly amazing in its performance and features but running Kodi means it scrapes everything and downloads subtitles, just like the good-old days of Mede8er boxes!

Like I said earlier, it has a dual-boot option so, if I boot into Android, I have access to just about every app that is found on Google Play Store (although you use Aptoide TV instead of Google Play Store to view and install them). Furthermore, and this is extremely important, Ugoos provide excellent support and are consistently improving their firmware. This box is like my old Mede8er on steroids. It plays 3D movies and 4K to perfection.

You can see a review on the AM6 Plus here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eH_cLjblgds

I am not saying you guys should buy one of these but you really should consider upgrading to a modern Android TV box as it will solve all your problems instantly and you will be really pleased you did.

I'm happy to answer any questions on this subject.

I too realised a solution was not going to be forthcoming this time and looked around for alternatives. I settled on a Synology NAS on which I run Plex. Plex can also do everything the Mede8er did and more and is very slick. It also gives you access to their own library and TV stations as well as all your own movies and TV shows with art work, summaries, profile of actors etc etc. If you dont want to get a NAS you can just take the HDD out of your Mede8er and plug it into your PC and share it. Plex is available on smart TVs, Firestick and Roku etc. Being an app rather than a device, it gets updated very regularly. Well worth trying out.

Plex is very easy to use and it takes all the hassle out of setting-up a network which, since Windows 10, has become a little complicated. Plex is also probably the most popular application in use today however, in order to get the best out of it you need to pay for a Plex Pass. Where it shines is in it being a straight out-of-the-box solution that appeals to both newbies and more experienced users.

Kodi is a little more complex to set-up. It took me a couple of days and I fine-tuned it over the period of a month, but it has so many add-ons that make it the most complete multimedia center available and it is free. Another interesting thing about Kodi is that they have a community forum with separate support for each type of TV box or computer. This means you can get help for issues you have while at the same time getting tips from the issues that other users of your device have come across.

For what it's worth, Kodi even has a Plex add-on which makes it run and look like Plex although it should be noted that you still have to pay for the Plex Pass subscription to unlock its full range of features.

Plex and Kodi are not the only solutions available. Search YouTube for Jellyfin and Emby to see what they have to offer. Both are free.
