Hello! sometime user, firsttime poster!

Ive been using XBMC for about 1½years and it has worked really well. But starting about a couple of months ago, i noticed that tv shows have started to dissapear in the showlist. I have made no changes to my library except added content. Ive tried cleaning the library but that only ended up making it worse.

Now, i have about 5 shows of 25 with tvdb.org and around 10 with another scraper. However, the "recently added" show all the shows when i readd the shows.

Ive deleted the databases i could find but to no avail, when scraping i still get the 5 show of 25.

Im using 11.0, no beta versions. I havnt done anything that i know of corresponding to the error. The videos from recently added can be played without problem, also the ones still in the list. I deleted all show.nfos and such.
Any ideas?

maybe you have some setting enable like only show unwatched?

Doublechecked and no, the shows that are still there are a mix of watched and unwatched. I looked around for other video hiding settings and didnt find anything. Im going to try marking one as watched to see if it dissapears from the menu. Im redoing the scraping so i can get a fresh log for you guys Smile

Do all your TV show folders have the same parent directory (e.g., "TV shows")?
When you scrape your TV shows, did you do this at the parent directory level or at the TV show folder level?

they have the same parent directory, j:\tvserier\[shows] so i scrape the parent directory, and leave the "only one show in folder" unchecked.

This is what repeats in the log after ive scanned with episode guide. It actually found 15 of the 25 this time. Can you spot something wrong?

i tried setting a show to watched and its still there so no go on that one. Thank you guys from trying to help me!
