thx for a wonderful program ..

I don't know if this is possible or not , but what about if you have your movies in a folder for each an then put a link to the movie database IMDB, if you tell PMS where to look, like for the movie nr. tt???? and then it will show you the describsion of the movie ??

That would be sweet. A link would not be necessary but this would be better IMO

This is one of the features I miss from my XBMC XBOX. I have like 35+ movies in my Movies folder but cannot recall what they are all about and with PMS/PS3 I have no way to quickly open some sort of automated IMDB info about the movie. Maybe the Media Library has some related feature but I have not used Media Library at all yet.

Yeah...would be nice. XBMC also automatically downloads thumbmails of movieposters or dvd-covers from IMDB...

Shagrath has done a great job already!

that option would be awsome .. but I don't think so, that it is possible, if ps3 sees only folders and files

Yeah, support for one of the online movie poster databases would be very welcomed. At the moment I'm spending a fair amount of time downloading, resizing and cropping posters.

A lot of creative ideas, but bare in mind that IMDB does a lot of IP filtering based on geographical location. There is a far chunk of their services not available outside of the US. Being in Australia myself I have found the issue, but worked around it by bouncing through a proxy when needed, not everyone will have that as a viable option. We really need the movie equivalent to Gracenote (CDDB), there are several projects I have seen, but none that quite cover what I'm sure we would all like.
