Sad  [SOLVED] Multiple copies of one or more movie's
Post: #1
I recently installed XBMC on to my windows 7 box several months ago and just started to get familiar with some of its features. The problem that I am having is that when I point the video icon to my video source and after all of the movies are download loaded....I get multiple copies of one or more movies. I have changed the name of the movies to omit the "Underscore" in the name title and certain characters but it doesn't seem to help. I've even uninstalled or reinstalled XBMC to see if the program is possibly corrupt.

Is there any viable way to fix this problem to only have one instance of a movie listed in XBMC? Thanks

Did you add the source twice by chance? Go to videos\files. Then choose your source and bring up the context menu. Choose edit source. Is it listed only once? Also does your folder/file structure match what is show in the XBMC online manual for scraping?

Read this before using these builds.

Welcome to the forum... Most of the double naming and multiples are caused by the scraper seeing more than one video and assigning the closed name. I recommend theRenamer for fast clean renaming that makes scraping in XBMC a breeze (and don't forget to use the 'cleanup' in settings>video>library often. If theRenamer it doesn't rename properly in the renamer, chances are pretty good you'll have close to the same luck in XBMC. If the Wiki's a a bit too dense, check out.. http://lifehacker.com/5536963/the-ultima...dia-center
