    Now we confirmed that upgrade to the new version(1010->1012) will result in the loss of some of the movie data, and disappear completely from the database. It should a data migration failure.Please wait for a new version with bug fixed.
    The previous cloud versions of DMS firmware have been discontinued, and this is the new beta local version
    Please do not use the former DMS Remote on this new local firmware; the new DMS Remote is still on the way, and should be ready soon.
    If you need to manage the metadata information of your movies, please use our new DMS Manager at, the former [your DMS IP]:32080 has been discontinued.

    About using the Movie Server offline
    As a local firmware, this newest version does not always need to be connected to the internet, except for a few specific tasks, such as when activating the DMS for the first time, or when you download/scrape the movie posters, or otherwise need to manage the relevant metadata…. This new firmware will send the information from DMS Manager to your DMS and store it there, and you can then be disconnected from the internet and still have access to all your data!

    What’s New:
    • Added the support to create playlists featuring various filtering terms;
    • Added the UI support for TVs with 4K@60Hz 420 12bit output (please enable the HDMI Deep Color on the TV);

    • Added the support for the DMS Manager to re-scrape the metadata for formerly unidentified files;
    • Added the support to retain the formerly scraped data even the HDD has been switched;
    • Added the support the network IP Control(Control 4).DevelopDoc:;
    • Redesigned the UI style, ushering in two sets of built-in skins;
    • Improved the OSD style to support to display the Color Depth, Chroma Subsampling, Gamut, Frame Rate and Resolution of the current HDMI output;
    • Fixed the problem that the DMS Manager does not support multi-server management;
    • Fixed the problem that the pop menus of certain sources cannot be dismissed;
    • Fixed the problem that new HDD is detected upon startup because certain HDDs load up slowly;

    Known Issues:
    • The scraper feature can scrap only English information as of now;
    • Due to some bugs, the NFO files for Kodi are not supported yet, but will be available later;
    • There are some bitrate and frame rate display issues with the DMS Manager;
    • Due to some editing issues, the support for movie series is not available yet, but will be ready later;
    • DMS Manager might experience a slower speed when accessing pictures, because all the pictures are now still in native TMDB resolution, and the picture compressing feature is still being optimized;
    • There are currently no real-time popup tips to certain operations in the DMS Manager, like when you click to scan media library, but don't worry, the system is still processing, just wait a little bit longer, and the real-time tips will be added in the later upgrade;
    • The language preference options of the navigation menu might not work properly when switching subtitles, audios of the DVD, Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD sources being played. This problem also exists in the former versions, and shall be addressed later.

    If you specify a path to TV Shows, the contents of this path will only appear in TV Shows, but now appears in videos. It can not be fixed at this moment.This is a bug.

    It changed everything I manually corrected from the meta info then most of it came back. There are about 20% that stayed changed that I have to redo.

      I also am getting different meta info on the movie server and the web page for the same movie and some movies are showing up 4-6 times.

        I have upgraded and cleared my library. Logged into the cloud to setup my library and click on the Add Folder button but only have an option to add a Network folder. I cannot add my internal 3.5" disk which is full of movies.

          Would be nice to be able to fix meta info directly from the MS instead of thru a web browser which is very slow and glitchy for me.

            I'm getting multiples of the same movie showing now. I have 1 that is showing 11 times. Many are showing twice.
