Hi,

The same movie appears N times if its folder contains N "xxx.vdr" files. E.g. the movie "Ghostbusters" has the following files on a shared drive with this structure:

//NAS/videos/
-----/movies
----------/Ghostbusters
---------------/001.vdr
---------------/002.vdr
---------------/index.vdr
---------------/info.vdr
-----/comedy
...

The movie data for "Ghostbusters" is split across "001.vdr" and "002.vdr" (because "001.vdr" is >2 GB), and the other 2 files are optional information (which I could delete, I guess). This movie thus appears 4 (four!) times (since the folder contains 4 "xxx.vdr" files) under various views in Kodi, e.g. when looking by "Title" or by "Genre", etc.

As mentioned above, I could delete all non-video files ("index" and "info") and concatenate the remaining "xxx.vdr" files (which would take a long time, though). Does anybody know if there are other (more elegant) ways to solve this problem? Thank you.
