I think we've reached the point where it would be nice to have one sticky that contains a list of various NFO-related resources, including helpful threads already posted on the topic.
If you have a resource you want added to this list, send me a PM and I'll update this post. This is NOT meant to be yet another discussion thread on NFOs, there are plenty of those already. Instead, it should be a summary of what's available.

Alternate Documentation (may not be complete) (all platforms)
Using Ember Media Manager (Windows only)
- Latest version with IMDB fix, download: https://github.com/downloads/Darkkni.../EMM-v1308.rar
