My movies are all in separate folders, and I encounter a problem with ones that are split in to two CD's. The directory structure looks like this:
[D] My Movie Name
- [D] CD1
---[F] movie-cd1.avi (or a bunch of unextracted rar files of the CD1 avi)
- [D] CD2
---[F] movie-cd2.avi (or a bunch of unextracted rar files of the CD2 avi)
So, the obvious solution would be to move the .avi files up into the root directory, but I'd really rather not do that (too many movies). When Ember scans (recursively, otherwise it doesn't detect any movies at all that is using the above folder structure), then it picks up each sub-directory as a separate entry. That means I end up with a long list of: CD1, CD1, CD1, CD1, CD2, CD2, CD2, CD2. Yuk!
Is there a way to NOT scan recursively and still have it enter the movie info into the top directory? It shouldn't matter what's in the CD1, CD2 directories if all the .nfo data is added to the root movie directory, right? (as some movie folders do have a .nfo in its root but EMM not detecting).
Also - is EMM able to detect movies that are unpacked (still in multiple rars)? As Ive got a few movies in folders named correctly but not extracted (i.e Movie Title->CD1->rar files) and EMM wont detect it. (I dont want to extract as XBMC can play them fine).
Add the folder as source and check "Only Detect one Movie From Each Folder" and "User Folder Name for Initial Listing" should do what you want.
Nope, had that setting originally and doesnt work either. (Only detect one movie, use folder names- both checked and scanned recursively checked). If I uncheck scan recursively, those movies with the CD1 CD2 folder structure dont even show up at all (where as now they do show up but as movies titled CD1, CD2).
