It is here
Just in case.
Linux PC: MySQL and all media files are there.
Win7 Master PC: XBMC, all lab work is there, updates, corrections, etc.
Win7 Liv. Room PC: XBMC and connected to the home theater.
Thanks for your time again!
P.S. Will try xbmc-r33324-Dharma_beta1 tonight.

You're welcome. Are you able to access the files in the Linux server from the Win7 machines from explorer? I'm not shure, but looking at your log it seems more like a file access problem than a database one.

Definitely yes. While in Win7 I have full rights to all files on the Linux machine. Have not yet tried the other Win7 machine. It was my first test with mySQL yesterday.
Is there any troubleshooting strategy that I can follow? I do not feel comfortable about bothering you and other gurus by asking all these stupid questions. Thanks, Alex
P.S. Still will appreciate every piece of a advice from you smart guys. I wish I could develop something similar.

I just installed xbmc-r33324-Dharma_beta1.exe. The log file looks awful - overcrowded with errors. Now it also says that the database is newer than expected - no access to it. I'm lost. Any help, please! Alex

Good evening Charrua,
For the sake of experiment I removed the advancedsettings.xml file and run XBMC. Everything returned to normal, the log file had one minor error. The moment the said file was restored, all problems came back. When I tried to open an artist folder - XBMC (Not responding) - game over! Alex

albaranov Wrote:Good evening Charrua,Try changing the name to the xbmc MySQL database and then start XBMC, it will force it to create a new one.

I realize that you were the only one who replied...
XBMC is scanning, the log file has more than 43,000 lines, one error so far.
All Cyrillic names are represented by crap symbols. XBMC is set to Cyrillic (Windows). Is it necessary to change something in mySQL to show Cyrillic correctly? Thanks, Alex

albaranov Wrote:Charrua,As stated before in this thread you should set the collation of the DB to latin1_general_ci , and the charset to latin1 to avoid problems with indexes. I believe with those settings you'll also be able to see the correct Cyrillic file names in XBMC.

I remember posts about it. It did not occur to me that latin1 can fix Cyrillic. Will follow your advice when scan is done. Thank you very much for your help and support. Alex
