These settings are dependent upon the skin selection used in XBMC. It is also important to note some add-ons, are skin specific, require a specific skin to work.


Create XBMC-compatible movie.nfo meta data

  • This file naming convention is required in XBMC for a folder/file structure where each movie title is contained in separate folders.
  • This option will create a movie.nfo file for movies, a tvshow.nfo file for tv series, and a episode.file.name.nfo for episodes from the default .xml files Media Center Master creates with the scrapped meta-data acquired from it's fetchers.
  • During the set-up configuration of a "Source" folder in XBMC, the "Use folder names for lookups" option is required with this naming convention.

Resize posters to banner size for T.V. shows (some XBMC skins need this; a backup will be made)

  • Pay attention to the XBMC skin's images to determine selection.
For example, if the posters/DVD covers look squashed this setting needs to be changed.

Create movie.tbn artwork from poster.jpg

  • This option is enabled, as a default setting, during Media Center Master installation.
  • The .tbn extension is required for images in XBMC.

Use [video filename].nfo/.tbn modern style naming

  • This file naming convention is used in XBMC for a folder/file structure where all movie title files are contained in one folder.
  • Some skins may require this setting.
Pay attention to the XBMC skin's meta-data and images.
  • The first and third options, also, need to be enabled for this option to work.
  • This option creates movie.filename.nfo/.tbn files for movies, tv series.filename.nfo/.tbn files for tv series, and episode.filename.nfo/.tbn files for episodes.
  • These files will be added to each of the movie title folders, tv series, and season folders.
