im going to assume you have a windows box as well as your openelec device.
ok you can basically run moviegrabber from any folder in "/storage" by default openelec creates a load of samba shares which can be accessed from \\<openelecipaddress> from windows explorer (put in the address bar), you should then see a load of shares, such as ConfigFiles, Downloads, Emulators etc, you can then unzip moviegrabber to any of these shares, i personally use "Downloads" as its not generally used by xbmc/openelec.
once you've unzipped moviegrabber you then need to enable ssh (if not already done), this can be done by creating an empty file named "ssh_enable" and placing this file in the "ConfigFiles" share, then reboot openelec.
once rebooted grab yourself a copy of putty (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgta ... nload.html) this requires no install, just double click the exe, then enter in the ip address of your openelec device in the host name and select "ssh" and click on "open" then login with username root password openelec.
once logged in type "cd downloads" (case sensitive) and then type "ls -al" to see a directory listing, you should see the unzipped moviegrabber install, so again cd to the folder e.g. "cd MovieGrabber" then simply type "python ./MovieGrabber.py -d" this will then start moviegrabber and you should then be able to access it from any external machine by going to http://<openelecipaddress>:9191 e.g. "http://192.168.1.2:9191"
if you want to make moviegrabber start automatically on boot then copy the command "python /storage/downloads/<unzippedfoldername>/MovieGrabber.py -d" in the file at \\<openelecipaddress>\ConfigFiles\autostart.sh you can do this using notepad on your windows box, or use nano via ssh.
i hope this helps, there is one issue with this and thats that PIL doesnt work correctly, this is due to openelec being a stripped down os and thus is missing some libraries required by PIL, so you wont see posters in history/queue, but apart from that it works just fine :-).
bit of a long post but its essentially dead easy, should have it running within 5 mins, let me know how you get on.
Wow awesome reply binhex, much appreciate your time! Got it up and running in 10 minutes. Loving it. Thanks you and have an awesome day!
