Hi Folks... I'm thinking that my toddler hit a button on the remote or keyboard. When I watch a TV episode, when finished, it loops and starts from the beginning. It used to go back to the season menu. Is there a simple way to change this in settings somewhere? Can't seem to find it.

Thank!

I've the same problem since I installed the official Dharma (no problems earlier with dharma beta 3 or 4).

I've not found any setups about that in xbmc... Weird.

I don't know how kids/wives/parents find these things. I couldn't find any way to loop playback?

go to the "Now Playing" area, and there should be a setting to repeat, turn it to OFF and it should all be well in the world.

XBMC Server/Client:
Database Type: MySQL
OS: WIN7 64-Bit/XBMCbuntu CPU: i7/Intel Atom (Dual Core)
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 760/Nvidia GeForce GT 520M RAM: 16GB/2GB (512MB GPU)

Ok, so I dug around and found the "now playing" settings to turn off the loop. Now I'm faced with a new problem: Instead of going back to the season menu when the episode is over, it starts playing the mp3 file from the tv theme (as I have tvtunes add-on), as if it was next in a play list. Bizarre. Any thoughts? xmurrx or oliver_27 have you had any luck? Thanks in advance

navigate to a movie
press 'c'
select 'Queue Item'
press 'c'
select 'Now playing'
Once in Now playing section bring up the 'View Options' and check off "repeat"

An easiest way :

Quit xbmc, then open guisettings.xml in your windows user appdata folder.

under <myvideos>, look after <playlist>. You'll see <repeat>true</repeat>.

Type false instead of true.

Save and launch xbmc, after the end of a tvshow, you go back to the season menu.

If you hide watched tvshows, xbmc make the next episode glowing, you just have to press your "ok" button to launch it.
