How To - Configure MyMovies Driver on Windows 7 x64
#11
Dean Roddey Wrote:What's preventing you from just installing the driver on the WHS box? That would solve the problems and would be more efficient since it doesn't have to do the database access remotely.

I couldn't get the the MyMovies client (Win 7) to connect to the MyMovies server (4 series build) on the WHS 2011 machine. That would have allowed me to have a client to rip movies and the WHS to maintain the database. Then I could install the driver on the WHS server and be done with it. I've tried to play with the client login but nothing worked. Finally gave up.

MyMovies 5, I guess doesn't play nice with CQC, but even that I had issues with a client not being able to access the MyMovies Server, as again, not practical to rip directly to the CQC/MyMovies main server.

Now I have MyMovies Collection Management only on my Win7 box until I figure something out, or just use XBMC navigation and directory to select a movie. Not ideal, but not the end of the world.

AFAIK, there aren't any issues with MM5. Folks are using it without any problems currently.

Dean: Yeah, went down this path again and rekindled the issue. I could not install a ODBC Server Driver instance. I tried everything (e.g. NT and SQL authentication, System and User DSN, mymovies passord) and nothing worked on WHS 2011 and SQL 2008. It works fine on my Win7 box with SQL 2005 and MyMovies 4.

Giving up again.....

Years ago I had the same problem and ended up giving up as well. With whs dieing a slow death maybe I'll move to win7 and be done with it.

But the issue isn't with CQC and MM5, right? It's with WHS and MM5?

Dean: Yes, WHS and MM5 and MM4 from what I can determine.

In the hope that it might help others, here's my experiences with trying to get myMovies working as a repository under Windows 10 (which I upgraded to last week).

Firstly DO NOT try to use MM5 - the way covers are stored is changed, and no longer works with the CQC driver. I found this discussed in another thread, but it's worth mentioning in this 'how to' thread, as it lost me a lot of time trying to track down the problem. For reference, I've now moved back to MM 4.07, which is the last version of MM4, and downloadable as a legacy version.

Next, I had real challenges getting the ODBC connecting the MSSQL database under Windows 10. None of the options discussed on these forums seemed to work for me, so I had to look elsewhere. Tbh, this made sense, since it was clearly not a CQC problem, but something to do with the MM4 dB, 32-bit ODBC connectors and Windows 10.

It finally turned out to be some problem related to resolving the name of my CQC server PC in the MM SQL dB name. HTPC/MYMOVIES would not authenticate the connection, but 127.0.0.1/MYMOVIES worked without issue.

Incidentally, I ended up using the 'SQL Server Native Client 10.0' ODBC driver NOT the one named 'SQL Server' only, but BOTH ODBC drivers appear to work. I just ended up with the Native Client during my attempt to troubleshoot the problem...

So, for Windows 10, I found this worked :

[INDENT]Tested with CQC 4.8.2, MyMovies Driver (V1 and V2) 1.0 , MyMovies 4.07

Installation Steps

Configure 32-bit Data Source
Go to Run and launch 32-bit ODBC C:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe
Select the System DSN Tab... Click Add Button
Select 'SQL Server' Driver OR 'SQL Server Native Client 10.0' ... Click Finish
In Create a New Data Source dialog enter the following
-Name: MyMoviesDSN (Or whatever you want)
-Description: MyMoviesDSN (Or whatever you want)
-Server: 127.0.0.1\MYMOVIES (127.0.0.1 is 'local' - it will also work with the IP address of the PC with the MM SQL dB on it, if it's a different PC, just make sure firewall settings/port forwarding is configured correctly!)
Click Next Button
How Should SQL Server Verify the Authenticity of the login ID.. click Next
Check "Change the Default Database To" and select "My Movies".. click Next
On next screen..click Finish
[/INDENT]

Hope this saves someone else a bit of time if they hit the same hurdles :-)

To get the Cover Art from MyMovies 5:

In the "MyMovies - Collection Management" program:

File -> Export -> XML File


A dialog box "Export XML File" pops up.

In the left column of check boxes, deselect everything except "Export Disc Titles". Click the "Okay" box.


A file dialog pops up. Set the path "\ProgramData\MyMovies\FileStorage" and then click "Select Folder".

Note: The export process automatically puts the covers into a folder called "Covers", so leave "Covers" out of the path.


These directions assume that you have configured the MyMovies CQC driver to use the default path to covers.

After the export, your IV templates should pick up the cover art. It may take a short while for them all to get synchronized, due to CQC's caching.

It looks like this step must be taken every time that the cover art is changed in MyMovies5, for example when adding new titles, which happens often for me.
Is that correct?
If so, it is a show stopper for MyMovies5, and I will likely stay with 4.07 as well.

Thanks
Mike
