I'm trying to get Media Browser set up correctly and efficiently. I've got 3 PCs I want to run it on. Basicaly a main desktop PC where all the content is stored, a HTPC at the TV and a laptop. I've shared the relevant folders and all the PCs are able to see them.
I've used media center master to organise my folders and grab meta data for eveything.
I've configured Media Browser on the main desktop PC and it seems to be working ok, except for the actor images but I think I need to edit an XML file to point it to the correct network drive where they are located.
I'm a little confused by some of the settings for Mediabrowser though. I opted not to have it run in the background at startup 'cos I don't really like a lot of stuff starting up automatically. Do I need to have this on though, on all or some of the PCs? I also allowed it to access internet based providers to access metadate on initial setup. Is this wrong? Because I've used media center master to fill in metadata should I disallow Mediaborwser? I've read conflicting advice around this but it seems like if the metadata is already there then mediabrowser won't touch it?
So which options need to be switched on and if so, do they need to be running on all 3 PCs or just one?
Also, do people have any recomended add-ons, settings or tweaks to get Mediabrowser running nicely?
