Hi, a quick question.

Is it possible to get XBMC to automatic remove movies and episodes from them library when I have deleted the files on my computer?

I have set i to run automatic scans at startup.


I find this a bit annoying so I hope you can help.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the quick reply...

I have created a file advancedsettings.xml put in folder "userdata"

with the string:

<videolibrary>
<cleanonupdate>true</cleanonupdate>
</videolibrary>

but it still shows the movies and episodes that I have deleted from my HD...

You are missing the <advancedsettings> tags (both open and close).

42.7% of all statistics are made up on the spot
