Xbmc not updating library for tv shows
I have recently done a fresh install of Open Elec 6.0.3 running Kodi 15.2.It works fine except for two library related issues. When I go into TV Shows and select "Scan for new content" from the context menu, it only scans for new content in the folder of the selected show. Since it doesn't show up in the TV Shows list before it's scanned, I have to go back up and into Videos - Files and scan for new content on the actual source of my TV Shows.Note: Even if you set the above for a global/parent folder/source for one setting, each folder, such as an individual TV show folder, can also have it's own content settings, which can be checked via Video- It is also important to understand does not have absolute ordering for some shows and thus ticking the Absolute Order button may result in the episode number not being found and thus no match found or an incorrect match.Additionally whilst absolute ordering may exist on thetvdb.com, that data may not be available to the scraper due to the way feeds that data out - see the section on debugging show matching (yet to be completed).In my previous version (xbmc 12 or 13 I think) it scanned the entire library for new content. It's also a hassle if I have added a bunch of new episodes to multiple shows.
Meanwhile, there are some amazing add-ons that will give you access to just about any TV show or movie you would want anyway.Kodi can make your massive media collection easy to browse and play, but adding new media is a bit of a chore. Here they are, listed in terms of how easy they are to set up: None of these methods are particularly complicated, but the two add-ons are going to require a bit more effort, with Watchdog being the most work.By default, you need to manually tell the program to re-scan your folders every time you add something, which is annoying if you add new media regularly. In exchange for more complication, each option gives more flexibility than the last, so it’s worth going over all three.my source path is: smb://myfileserver/Videos/Serier/ inside the Serier folder I have folders for each show.Content is set to TV Shows, and the "Selected folder contains a single tv show" and "Exclude path from library updates" are not checked.
