I don't think I can thank you enough! Did you actually type all of that out? Wow, you should have that stickied, very informative. Anyway, no matter what settings I use for the "set content" option, I still have to go in to each movie file and tv show folder and use the "set movie/tvshow information" manually for it to show up in the library with a thumb. Not sure why, but Im just happy I can use the library mode now.
I did type it all there, but I had just fought in the office and needed release anyway
I personally don't use the "Library Mode". It's completely incompatible to the way I use XBMC (I appreciate why others might have a use for it, it's actually useful for music and it's exactly like iTunes, which I love. It just doesn't fit for videos for me).
It took me a lot of trial an error to finally realize "Seasons" don't actually serve a purpose in XBMC (something I hate but can't change on my own).
I'm glad it was useful. Do let me know if you need more help.
