I don't use Movie Sets much but I was doing a little house cleaning on XBMC today and noticed a rather large number of sets most of which only contain one movie. IMO one movie does not constitute a set. How can I setup xbmc so that only sets of 2 or more movies are displayed?
You cant, until 4738 (PR) is merged. What you can do is edit the set and remove the movie form set > Select set > remove movie for set > set to none.
Thanks. Perhaps it'll happen with Helix. ?

Could you elaborate on this. I believe I understand how to remove the movie in Manage Sets but I'm not sure what happens if I do remove the movie (not the set) or how the result would be any different from just removing the set itselfHuh
Just set it to None.

Set what to "None"?
The movie.

Context menu > Manage... > Manage Movie set > No set

I understand. Yes, it can be done from within the Set Manager or from the movie listing. My question though is what is the advantage of this over just deleting the unwanted set? That's what I've been doing and haven't noticed any problems, but maybe I'm missing something that'll pop up later to bite me in the a$$.

I gave you a reason why it is done as it is currently, I pointed you to a valid patch that would solve the issue, essentially both problem and solution. Then I volunteer info on how to correct issue via existing mechanisms using the set manager., you have been explained how to achieve this from others here. And still we feel like you are unhappy with the correct and proper information being given to you.

Maybe you could have a read of http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=160517 and more specifically http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid...pid1383202

There is no more to tell you.

Not unhappy at all. Never meant to give that impression. Just trying to learn something new. I got the idea from your first post that just deleting sets with single movies was not the best solution. Perhaps I'm misunderstanding. Just trying to figure out why I should delete the contents of the set rather than just deleting the set itself?

As far as the patch goes, I guess I'm blind. I don't see anything in the threads you linked regarding a patch.

They are one in the same. Setting to none = deleting the set.
Thanks Ned. Thought maybe I had been creating a bunch of problems for myself with all the sets I have deleted.
Patch is again what I already gave you in my first reply. 4738 (PR)
