I'm slowly working getting the library feature to cover all of my movies, TV series and Videos but I have a few I'm not sure how to handle and neither apparently does the scrapping function in XBMC.

Take for instance the TV mini series 'The Stand', it was on multiple nights but My version is in two separate files, part one and part two. Should I list this as a movie or a Television show. Right now it's set as a Movie which doesn't scrape at all. Should this be a TV show? While I'm on TV Shows how about shows that are not part of any series? How do you list them??

How about a video, like a howto video that I ripped from a CD, is that a Movie or should I label it a TV Show?

Should I be using a nfo for each show or mini series that doesn't scrape or is there another way to name them so that they scrape properly.


I really like the Library feature but I find it annoying that I have to jump to the Video select to find some of the shows/videos that I have but XBMC doesn't see correctly in Library mode.

Have it as a movie or a tv show, your choice.
If it can't be scraped (due to lack of data on scrape sites) add it to the site (if they permit it) or use an nfo file.

What do you mean - like specials? (e.g. http://thetvdb.com/?tab=season&seriesid=...7261&lid=7) = S00E01

Up to you. Or you could create a new menu item e.g. "how to" and use that - it won't be in the library though.
