Nearly all of my movies show up twice in the database (only exceptions are the ones I've removed 1 of the nfo files).
MC is truly universal in that it supports every naming convention supported by XBMC, it is up to the user to choose.
So if you have used any other media manager previously then you can change over without needing to start from scratch.
If you have multiple nfo files for each movie, then this will cause each movie to be listed multiple times.
The most usual situation where this occurs is when a movie has the following.
The fix is to delete one or the other. Doing a search for all movie.nfo files, deleting them all, and rebuilding the movies from the movies drop down menu would solve your problem.

Seems to be a problem with the Episode NFO's. Its a random thing because they all happen to be shows first scraped with Gen2. Yet I have shows where other eps have scraped fine.
Here's the NFO's it created which are basically blank.

Due to the often slow speed of TVDB it took me 5minutes to just add the show. And then what happens if it is the wrong one.
I had the same sort of idea, but instead of having MC automatically scan the new show in, could you just add the show folder to the list of shows to the left. That way, you know that there is a new show in your root folder, and you can manually add the show and its episodes.
Just a thought.

I think its fine. I'd take accuracy over a bit of speed. Like Billy says, once its done its done spare adding the odd show.

I think i found a bug.
When scraping an episode, with a name like this : Heroes.S04E04.720p.HDTV.x264-CTU.mkv, the scraper thinks that is a multipart episode, and return the following data on the log :
Working on episode: D:\Versões HD\Series HD\Heroes\Season 04\Heroes.S04E04.720p.HDTV.x264-CTU.nfo
Multipart episode found:
Season: 04 Episodes, 04, 264,
Looking up scraper options from tvshow.nfo
Scraping body of episode: 4
Scraping actors from IMDB
Actors scraped from IMDB OK
This episode could not be found on TVDB
and don't even save the nfo file.

This was an issue with the last build of MC, it should be fixed now, just delete the file and try again.
