Hi,
I am running XBMC on my MacMini 2012 version running 10.7.3.
I am using Confluence for the time being but I have the same issue on other skins too.
When I create a location in Video for movies I direct it to that proper subdirectory and use the correct scraper for info and all is well...
I can use Movies and see all the movies listed with their information.

However, when I do the same with another subdirectory where I store TV shows I don't see it populating the TV series menu entry in the main screen just like the Movies one.
I use tvdb as the scraper and it is strange but I can see 2 shows (episodes) show up but all others (300+) are not showing.

What am I doing wrong or is there something special I should consider for tv series Confused

Thanks much for your help.
H.

Thanks Ned, but if it were only this simple.
The Movies are playing fine in the same structure with the same naming....

Scrapers are painfully picky about naming, and TV and movies use very different structures.

Hi Ned,
Thanks again for answering so quickly, I looked at the naming structure a bit better and I found the issue now, this naming thing indeed is painful but at least I know understand where the problem is.
Thanks a lot !
Much appreciated.
