Hi

I'm trying to setup Alaska so I can 2 different libraries. I have movies and Standup comedy but they both get mixed into the same library because both types come under movies.

I read that I can have separate libraries for each type if I create another profile. The problem is when I go add a new profile it won't let me choose it, it seems like it is disabled or something. Is it the same for everyone else ?.

Thanks,

Do you know how to edit the genre for a particular movie and can there be custom genres ?.

I use EMM to sort out all my movies and genres and yes you can add custom genres.

What options do you choose when creating it?

Does it behave the same in Confluence?

You can look here for more info on what you want to do:

I'm able to add a profile in confluence but...............

I'm trying to follow your tutorial but the directories you specify to put the keymap.xml(s) don't exist.

I have :-

C:\Program Files\XBMC\userdata (no keymap folder exists inside the directory)
&
I've created a profile but a folder never appeared
