not sure if this should be posted here?

can i combine multiple video sources in one smart playlist?
i have not got it to work.
i have been using xbmc for a few months with few real problems. this is the first time have not found an answer here or on the wiki.
this seams like such a simple and basic thing i must be missing something that should be obvious.

I am running frodo 12.1, aeon nox 4.1.9 on a mac 10.8.

my video library is growing on
drive A is a folder (TV Shows)
on drive B a folder (TV Shows 2)

currently drive A /TV Shows appears on my nox home menu via a smart playlist. all is good.
i added drive B/TV Shows 2 as a new source in xbmc. all is good so far.

next i added drive B/TV Shows 2 to my TV Shows smart playlist just as drive A /TV Shows was.

the now the the menu is empty.

i can have one or the other show up fine but not both in the same playlist/menu.

i tried to create a new smart playlist that combined - drive A /TV Shows playlist and drive B /TV Shows 2 playlist
with the same result.

so what am i missing or doing wrong?

thanks for your help.

wow! thank you so much.
i have spent about 2 hours trying to get this to work.

no doubt i am a bit slow, but can you explain why this worked?
if it knowing will be of any benefit to me or someone else in the future.

thank you again
