OSMC hangs on scanning movie metadata (Universal Movie Scraper)

Hi, I have OSMC running on a Raspberry Pi 2 B and it works great. However when scanning new media (movies) stored in network paths using the Universal Movie Scraper OSMC becomes completely unresponsive and only plugging power off and back on helps. Thes same thing happens when using The MovieDB plugin.

Is there any limitation to the number of entries or size of the DB? Any other restrictions that could cause the issue?


Scraping is power intensive, so you could be stretching your PSU too far.

There is no limit to the size of the DB.

Turn on debugging in the kodi settings and reproduce the problem. Then upload the logs with the log uploader in MyOSMC. Provide the link here.
