      "The information about gnudb.org was very helpful. Investigating further has enabled me to find the changes necessary to return the CDDB lookup functionality to my VortexBox by configuring gnudb.org as the CDDBHOST in the file /etc/ripit/config. I am running VortexBox 2.5 and made the following edits to /etc/ripit/config.

      In the CDDB Options section -

      mb=0
      CDDBHOST=gnudb.org
      mirror=gnudb
      transfer=http
      proxy=proxy.gnudb.org:3128"

      Where do I enter the parameters above? How do I get to /etc/ripit/config? Is it somewhere in the Vortexbox menu or is there a linux command editor I need to access?
      Also I am running VortexBox 2.3. Can I make the above changes in it or do I need to update to 2.5?

      I just spent well over an hour using MP3Tag as all my rips are now coming up as unknown.

      Thanks in advance for your help.

        Login to your VB with something like PUTTY

        Enter "root" as username and your "password", then at the command prompt type:
        nano /etc/ripit/config

        search for the lines above and replace as defined, EXCEPT, do NOT add the quote character after 3128

          Installed Putty.
          Not sure how to search for lines above.
          Here is my putty session, will this result in the changes needed?

            You skipped a step. Reread above.

              So how do I put the file /etc/ripit/config in the edit mode? I don’t know Linux so it is not obvious to me.

                if you can log in to the vortexbox. User = root , password = vortexbox just type ---> nano /etc/ripit/config and scroll through the file for the entries you need and replace them. After that press ctrl + o to save and press enter

                  Sorry to be so dense. After I go into the edit mode with the nano command how do I get the file to display so I can scroll through it to change the parameters?
                  Here is how my last sessions looks: (Only the header is displayed)
                  (I can type the commands above but not within the program itself.)

                    transfer=http
                    proxy=proxy.gnudb.org:3128

                    I am not 100% sure if the proxy entry is necessary, but once it started working did not go back to further diagnose if the proxy is needed.
                    I don't think I have any other significant customization or have made any edits to other supporting files on my VortexBox.
                    Maybe a rewrite of the aforementioned perl files will not be necessary at this time.

                    I am a long time user of the VortexBox software and this is a first post. I hope it is helpful.
                    I am pleased my VortexBox is back in business.

                    YES!

                    VortexBox SW Version: 2.4
                    in my original ripit config, mb was set to 1, CDDBHOST was pointing to musicbrainz.org, mirror to freedb and proxy was blank
                    I had to change it all into the above settings (including proxy) to get it to work again.


                    Thank You!


                    cheers

                      Found the page up and down commands in nano and was able to edit the parameters in place. Thanks to those that provided advice.

                          That's strange - I just ripped one CD to test it, but the artwork appeared for me. Let me try another and I'll report back.

                            Ok, I tried another CD and as Doris found, it isn't automatically grabbing artwork. I can only assume that the artwork appeared for the first one I tried because either (a) I pressed the Get CD Cover Art" button on the CD ripper when ripping and that may have prompted the download or, (b) Bliss fixed the artwork for me. Not sure why it isn't working though.

                              Perhaps with some CD’s the cover art is embedded in the CD itself therefore easily accessible by VortexBox ... I’ve tried several CD’s including the pressing of the get cover art button with no cover art as a result ... I’m using VortexBox 2.5!

                                Very glad that those who have edited their /etc/ripit/config file are back in the business of ripping CDs. Thank you for the kudos and for passing the word in other General and Support threads on this site. Since my post I have ripped over 200 CDs each with complete CDDB data retrieved. However, all without album artwork. Not sure when the album artwork retrieval stopped as I have been using Bliss almost as long as the VortexBox. I also use Tag & Rename (paid) and mp3tag (free/donation) to complete my artwork, normalize things like spelling, abbreviations, comments, etc.

                                I have been investigating how the ripping process retrieves the artwork. Basically, searches on Amazon and Google Images are formulated and executed in an attempt to pull artwork. Best I can tell, by capturing the queries and executing them in a browser so I can see the output, the APIs and servers that are queried at Amazon and Google are no longer available. While I was hoping that my second post would be as good as my first (thanks Fifer) I do not have the skill to rewrite, even edit the script used for retrieval of artwork.
