I'm new to xbmc, and I'm having trouble putting on the add-ons because I got xbmc through nitotv, I was having trouble downloading it directly.

Hi,

is there a way to get .dts and .ac3 music files read into the music library? As far as I know I can't tag those filetypes like I can with .mp3 files.

Hi all,

I have installed XBMC-Buntu on a Shuyttle sx35GT V2 and all seems to be working well.

I do have an issue with getting XBMC to scrape 2 different External HDD's. I have one external HDD with movies on and one external HDD with TV, Stand Up Comedy and Docco's etc on it. I have the external HDD with movies on scraping fine and the movies are all in the movies directory with covers and Movie info.

Does anyone know how i can get it to recognize the second HDD, thus far i can only watch stuff on it via media manager.

Thanks in advance.

XBMC's video library seems split into a "Movies" and a "TV Shows" sub-library.

Whenever I choose "Update video library" (either manually in the library context menu, or automated on startup), it only says "Downloading TV Shows information" and it indeed only scans for new TV Shows.

I have to go into Video -> Files -> [movie source] and choose "Scan for new content" in order to actually update the movies. But this action cannot be automated.

Is this working as intended?

Edit: Never mind, it was working as intended since I had somehow checked the option "Exclude this folder from library updates" for my movie source. How did I not figure this out for a week, but within an hour after posting this? Rolleyes

Hi,

I am updating my library of TV Shows
My issue is ..... I have some Part1 and some part2 shows

example:
Creature.Comforts.s01e02.Pets at the Vets (Part 1)
Creature.Comforts.s01e02.Pets at the Vets (Part 2)

These do display in the library.
As shown in Library
1x02. PETS AT VETS
1x02. PETS AT VETS

There is no distinction between the two

If I do:
name.s01e01a.ext
Creature.Comforts.s01e02a.Pets at the Vets (Part 1)
Creature.Comforts.s01e02b.Pets at the Vets (Part 2)

or

name.s01e01.1.ext
Creature.Comforts.s01e02.1.Pets at the Vets (Part 1)
Creature.Comforts.s01e02.2.Pets at the Vets (Part 2)

or any of the other variants they don't show up in the Library

name.1x01.1.ext
name.1x01a.ext
name.ep01.1.ext
name.101.1.ext

Thanks

File stacking doesn't work for TV shows yet.


RE: HOW-TO add and scan media files into XBMC Library - Lowdef - 2013-05-01 23:32

How do I edit the information being scraped through for tv series? I.e. I have The Killing being shown as the Danish one and V as the old one? Any suggestions how o change?


RE: HOW-TO add and scan media files into XBMC Library - Ned Scott - 2013-05-03 04:36

Try adding the premiere year to the show title.

Hi, if you download a file rename the folder to the movie name no extras and dont load the *.nfo of the file
