Yes, sorry - it wasn't working so I put the html page back.

Any suggestions as to exactly what it should like.
I assume some variation of:
{
  "name" : "Netflix Reconciliation through Freebase",
  "identifierSpace" : "http://rdf.freebase.com/ns/authority.netflix.movie",
  "schemaSpace" : "http://rdf.freebase.com/ns/type.object.id",
  "view" : {
    "url" : "http://www.netflix.com/WiMovie//{{id}}"
  },
  "preview" : {
    "url" : "http://netflix-reconcile.freebaseapps.com/preview/{{id}}",
    "width" : 430,
    "height" : 300
  },
  "suggest" : {
    "type" : {
      "service_url" : "http://netflix-reconcile.freebaseapps.com",
      "service_path" : "/suggest_type",
      "flyout_service_url" : "http://www.freebase.com"
    },
    "property" : {
      "service_url" : "http://netflix-reconcile.freebaseapps.com",
      "service_path" : "/suggest_property",
      "flyout_service_url" : "http://www.freebase.com"
    },
    "entity" : {
      "service_url" : "http://netflix-reconcile.freebaseapps.com",
      "service_path" : "/suggest",
      "flyout_service_path" : "/flyout"
    }
  },
  "defaultTypes" : []
}

I eventually thought that if I put exactly that on my service it should at least pick it up. 
Or is it to do with the MIME type or something?
Clearly I don't understand what I am doing :-)
But if you could suggest enough to get it to work, that would be really kind.
That is what it returns now.

Best
Hugh
