MediaGrabber grabs cover images and metadata for your media files automagically. Just point it at the directory root of your media items and it will scan all subdirectories and download covers and movie/tv/hddvd/etc. info automatically.

You can use it with ATVFiles, and even other platforms such as Vista Media Center's My Videos.

This script can be run on any platform with a php interpreter (windows, linux, osx, or on the ATV directly).

e.g. php mediagrabber.php c:\temp\mymovies DVD

If you want to contribute via paypal as a way to say thank you, that would be appreciated. :)
