Hi fschnack, no it's not in the addon repos, I'm not sure how to add them there. If you'd like to do that, go for it!
I'll always put the latest version in the first post, so download 2.0.16 and give it a go!

I got an error 'contact the dev', while entering the movies section.
Tvshows are appearing, but those shows are not missing in my library.

@ubuntuf4n Could you post a log please?
- ubuntuf4n - 2011-03-09 00:49
hiram, i'll do that later on.

I don't think anyone other than the author can submit an addon to the repo. If you would like to do so yourself, here is a page that explains how. Basically, you just email them with the format they layout there and ask them to add your script.
Now on a completely unrelated note...
I find it interesting that in your first post you say that it is impossible for smb shares to work. I tried out the very first version of your script when you first released it, and while there were problems, it did work quite well for my tv shows (and all of my movies and TV shows are on remote smb shares). It actually helped me find quite a few shows that hadn't scanned in. Is there a reason why it would have worked then with smb but now it doesn't? I did just try the newest version of the script and it just comes back with "could not detect TV paths" as I'm sure you would expect.

Uhh, where is the page? Haha I don't see a link.
The reason I say that it doesn't work with smb shares is that Python doesn't natively support them, so I can't handle them. If you're mounting your Samba shares as network drives, then I think they should work pretty well.
That's in my experience though, using Samba shares from a Linux machine to another Linux machine. It may very well work for people using Samba between two Windows machines, which would be great news! But I don't have any Windows computers so I can't actively test it.

Doh! I could have sworn I pasted in the link. Here it is, anyhow
Regarding the smb shares....
I'm just confused I guess as to why smb worked for me on earlier versions of the script if it's not technically able to handle it? I'm running xmbc live and the shares are on a linux-based NAS

i don't know where you see that, i'm using smb share in most of my plugin, my htpc doesn't mount any share and all is working like a charm.
when executing python in xbmc it has access to xbmc vfs, so smb:// is working there.

Thanks for that timdog! I'll look into that when I get a bit of time.
Well, there's nothing in my code that prevents Samba shares from working. I don't block them or anything, so they should be picked up like normal and at least attempt to be handled.
If you guys are prepared to help me (by doing testing, posting logs and whatnot), I can try and figure out the problem regarding it not detecting Samba shares properly for whatever reason and we could get them working.
Also, thanks for clarifying that ppic. Basically every thing I looked up regarding Python supporting Samba shares (through Google) stated that this functionality didn't exist.

Just found this plugin and it is exactly what I was looking for, except for the fact that I am running xbmc on an apple tv 2 with an SMB share =P But I will try it and post logs if it doesn't work. Thanks a lot for writing this.
