So the problem is actually that when you export an xbmc video library, and reimport, it screws up the tv information, for whatever reason. It only recognizes 1 episode for every season. So if you have 10 seasons of a show, and you go into "all seasons" you will see 10 episode #1's.
Everything related to the movies folder works fine (on both boxes) though, except for that fact that I lost the functionality to "resume from.." ..... that was a large part of why I ever attempted this in the first place.
So, I thought maybe importing the library wasn't the best way, I dropped my databases, removed advancedsettings.xml, removed all my media sources.
Then, I created new blank mysql databases, put advancedsettings.xml back in, and started xbmc. As predicted, there was nothing there. So I added a new source (thinking it would just scrape everything, and insert it into the sql database, and everything would work). After adding a new source (TV) nothing happens. I can view the mysql database and see the mysql xbmc_video "path" table has some information in it (xbmc did this), but when I go to "tv shows" in xbmc it shows me there is nothing there. However, if I go into video-files, I can see the TV source, and I can view all the files (no metadata)
This entire process is so simple I'm failing to see why it works for everyone but me........ Can someone please tell me what I'm missing? I'm getting so frustrated.
