I'm having endless hassles with Kodi not picking up my library correctly.

I have been through all my movie and TV series and they are properly named (using Ember) however after setting up the file sources, Kodi has failed to pick up several seasons of some series and also incorrectly named several movies.

I have tried removing and re-adding the source as well as cleaning the library but nothing seems to work.

Any suggestions?
no, not without a Debug Log
Pick a few examples, movies or TV, and then manually compare with the scraper you have selected. Go look at the names online that KODI is trying to match to. Personally I don't user Ember or any media manager, I just use the built in scrapers and find that sometimes I need to tweak file names. Many of the sites are US biased so sometimes a UK show needs a tweak to the name or similar.

Is Ember creating NFO files? Is KODI set to only look at those NFO files or is it also scraping?

Debug log takes the guesswork out of this as many of your answers will be in there.
