The Movie Database Support

Dear TMDb community,

First of all, many thanks to Travis and the entire TMDb community for creating such a beautiful API. It was really a pleasure to work with it. I was very impressed of the speed and also of the quality and completeness of the metadata.

I have used this API to create a new showcase (namely THE MOVIE DB MSX) for my application (Media Station X) that I would like to share. THE MOVIE DB MSX is a service that provides access to TMDb content via the Media Station X application that is available for all major TV devices (Samsung TVs, LG TVs, Android TVs, and Fire TVs). It allows you to browse movies and their related information (e.g. description, actors, images, videos, etc.) and to watch all images and videos in full resolution. I hope you enjoy using it and I would be very happy to receive feedback and ideas for improvement.

For screenshots and more information, please see the showcase THE MOVIE DB MSX on this page:

Best regards,

I am able to add the Media Station X app to my Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K, but I can't find your app in the Amazon appstore. Please advise. Thanks.

Thank you for your feedback. Here is the Amazon appstore link: Alternatively, please search for "media station x" or "benzac" on your Fire TV stick.

Best regards,

When I search on Benzac (there is no "." character allowed in search), the only app that comes up is Media Station X, which I've already installed. But when I search the appstore for THE MOVIE DB MSX, I find nothing. Maybe I'm confused about what you are saying. The link you furnished takes me to a page that is in German, but Google translate apparently doesn't work on that page.

Media Station X is the correct application. THE MOVIE DB MSX is just a service for that. Please launch Media Station X and navigate to "Settings" -> "Start Parameter" -> "Setup" and enter "" to set up this service.

It works fine. My only suggestion would be, if possible, in the search area, allow wrapping around the keyboard during search, so that one can jump from letter "l" back to letter "a" by moving to the right instead of having to move back all the way through the row of letters to get to the "a" character instead of exiting the keyboard. I noticed that various other menus have a horizontal or vertical wraparound feature that allows jumping from one side to the other quickly. Maybe you could implement the same feature in the search keyboard. Or maybe it's already there, but the wraparound to the left seems to go too far to the left, out of the keyboard. Really nice app, though. :thumbsup: :smiley:

Thank you for your feedback. I have also noticed that this is not very user-friendly, so I have changed it according to your suggestion. This feature will be available in the upcoming version (Media Station X 0.1.102+).
