Is there anyway to erase the whole xbmc database of the movies and tv shows without uninstalling xbmc? I want to rescan all my movie and tv shows from scratch. Sometimes the fanart doesnt change when i just remove the movie the library and rescan it in. I used ember to create all the nfos and want to reenter them all in but would rather not reinstall xbmc and all the mods i have put in it.

So probably could just delete that and should be good.

Dont seem to see that location and I dont have a username for xbmc that I know of.

Is there a way to delete database within xbmc at all? or you have to manually delete the actual folders?

Easiest way is to edit the source and set content to none. It then asks if you want to remove all entries in that source from the database.

Once it's removed them simply set content back to whatever it was before. Job done!

I deleted mymovies.db in order to have XBMC re-download all the data again - however I no longer have IMDB as a scraper option. The only movie scraper I have is themoviedb.com which is slow as hell.

Anyone know how I can enable the IMDB scraper again?

thanks
