Hey Folks,

didn't use the library/content features of XBMC yet, I know shame on me :-)
Anyway, I am playing around with it now and need some help.

First, I got most if not all of my TV Shows packed as multiple rars. I don't want to unpack them just for content scanning. In addition to that, I have every single Episode of a show in a single folder. My structure for a show, let's say 24 looks like this:

/TVShows/24/Season1/24.S01E01-Blah/24S01E01-Blah.rar
/24.S01E02-Blah/24S01E01-Blah.rar

and so on ....

Automated scanning does not work for me with this structure. I can however, scan single Episodes if I enter the Season1 Directory and try to set content for an Episodes Folder etc. etc.
Obviously I don't want to add Episode by Episode ... would take ages.

Can anybody give me a hint how to get automated Scan to work with the directory structure above, and with packed releases in rar format?

thanks
