Batch re-read NFO files without losing watched etc. - bossanova808 - 2011-03-22 05:51
As with a number of other threads, I am frustrated that I can't easily get XBMC to re-scan all my movies/TVs for NFO updates other than either removing and adding the content, or hitting refresh one by one (just too onerous with thousands of library entries).
It would be great if there were some sort of recursive 're-read NFO' function that would grab any changed NFO info (e.g. movie sets etc.) - my various metadata tools (Ember, Sickbeard, Couch Potato and TVRename) all at various times update NFOs and it would be great to have this latest info reflected in XBMC without having add/remove, import/export etc., and while maintaining watched/playcount status as stored in the DB.
I am sure this is more complicated than it looks, but it would be very very handy.
(I am using XBMC as Openelec RC3 with MySQL DB synchronsing the metadate to two machines, and the media and thumbnails are stored/remote mounted on a Windows 7 server).

I'm sure there is already a method for doing this. Something like changing the content of your source to none and then back to Film (or whatever it is) and then saying yes to refresh info for all.

Then you lose all your watched statusses.
(and you can't export the library as that overwrite the nfos)
