Hi all,
i've noticed a problem when i want to "Scan for new content" if i use a multi-path source.

The problem occur when the scan start BEFORE the opening of the multi-path source is finished..

Possible solution: start the scan ONLY when the opening of the multi-path is finished, and not at the same time.

Can anyone correct this?

The problem is that when the scan start "before the opening of the multi-path", the scan doesn't work (it doesn't find the new files):

..then the scan msg disappears without results and the "opening multi-path source" window remain on the screen, xbmc is hanged here.

Otherwise, when the "opening multi..." ends BEFORE the scan start (ramdomly it works right).. the scan works perfectly.

I have been having the same issue. Very annoying. many times my xbox will just freeze halfway through the multi path scan.

if i open up the movie source that i had created the multi source openining goes complete. no issue. sometimes i do this first then go back to top level and run the scan again. it helps but not always.

sure hope a solution comes along.

PS i have roughly 1200 movies and they are over 4 directories.

this will NEVER get any attention as long as it is only in some random thread in the utter wrong subforum. if there is a bug, stick it on trac.
